Your Christmas Cracker!
The best present you could give yourself is this solid and handsome 1950-built character home in popular Hataitai. Standing tall and proud, and sited for excellent sea views, this mid-century home is a feast of colour, light and space, with flexible living areas, a high stud and native timbers throughout. The spectacular sea views over Hataitai to Evans Bay and the south coast are simply mesmerising. At 70 years young, this home has not only been well-maintained, but improved over the years for today's modern life. A renovation by renowned architect John Mills provides for wonderful flow to and from the living room to the generous dining and open plan kitchen - pull the custom-designed glass and timber slider across for formal separation. The kitchen was specifically designed by way of a large skylight and considered positioning, to enjoy both sun and sea views over the sizeable stainless bench. Step through the French doors out to the extensive decking and clever terracing that will see you enjoying an evening tipple, in shelter and privacy, as you look out to the twinkling lights. Upstairs, there are three double bedrooms (all with built-in wardrobes), and a modern bathroom with both separate shower and bath. Further concept drawings were prepared for adding another bedroom and living room - an option to pursue if more space is desired. This well-loved home has been almost fully double-glazed, with gas central heating and a DVS, plus excellent insulation making it warm and dry, quiet and peaceful. Garaging for two vehicles is an absolute bonus. So close to Hataitai Primary School, the bustling village, beach, CBD and airport, with public transport just a minutes' walk away. Our owners have simply adored living here, and have had nearly 30 Christmas dinners of their own as their family has grown up here. A gift to you and your family - don't miss out!
