Here’s a solution for entertainers or that growing family. This stylishly renovated 4(plus!)-bedroom character pop-top bungalow in sought-after Northcote Point has oodles of options for work and play, including a workshop, rumpus or studio (with kitchenette) below, and above a new master bedroom with stunning views of the Sky Tower and the harbour, plus a separate mezzanine space with a fold-out bed for guests. While you’re just moments from the Point’s famous bars, restaurants and cinema – and a stone’s throw from Onewa Road’s motorway access and commuter options to the city – your family will find surprising levels of peace and privacy.
Inside is a spacious open-plan living/dining area that flows around a large kitchen with excellent storage and bench space. This opens out through bifolds to the sunny, flat lawn and deck via a smart extension with pebbled concrete floors and skylight windows that let the afternoon sun stream in.
Sit your guests at the breakfast bar as you whip up a meal on the 6-burner hob and its extra-large oven or watch the kids play while you indulge your green thumb in the vege garden. Although you’ll easily accommodate a crowd, there are several nooks to get away, either in the adjoining media room/library, or in one of the generously-sized bedrooms, two of which have original fireplaces. Meanwhile the bathroom and master ensuite are right on trend with dual shower heads and the latest tap-ware and cabinetry. A separate laundry, gas central heating plus off-street parking for four cars within the automatic gated frontage mean you’ll lack for nothing!
