SOLD - Thank you for your interest.
This 1929 3-bedroom bungalow casts an enchanting spell on all who enter. From its two frontages set on both a private lane and a tree-lined street in the heart of Birkenhead Point, you'll step through a secret garden into an elegant family home built in the Arts and Crafts style. Its owners, one of whom is a renowned landscape architect, have loved living here for 35 years. During that time they've architecturally extended the entrance for brilliant indoor-outdoor flow, creating a sunny, north-facing veranda framed by bougainvillea, and a light and welcoming kitchen-dining room that spills onto it. They've also transformed what was a sloping section into a tranquil, three-tiered garden, resplendent with hibiscus, roses, Algerian oak, cherry and palm trees.
With more than 1000 sqm to spread out on, this dynamic property allows for plenty of privacy, with three large double bedrooms and two bathrooms dotted along its L-shaped configuration, and a lovely large living room with original features, and even more views of the garden and Rangitoto. A purpose-built writer's studio is situated at this end, and a separate studio office is at the other - the ultimate in work-from-home living.
With space in the car port for three cars, the Point's vibrant cafes just a stone's throw away, plus an easy walk to the city ferry, stunning bushwalks and the Highbury shops, you'll feel a million miles from the hustle and bustle yet an intrinsic part of the best village in town. And there's potential to take it to the next level.
