An airy oasis for family life, this deceptively spacious dwelling makes the most of its 1849sqm city-fringe site and teases at the idea of a private relaxed retreat without leaving town. A sustained and brilliantly executed renovation project sees the 293sqm home develop from its chrysalis 1950s origins into the beautiful monarch it is today. Treated to a loving restoration, with mindful timber work, integrity enhanced and new floor area added, this home is a renovation success waiting to be enjoyed. Recreated for modern living, drawing inspiration from a lush gully environment and delivering a fabulous indoor-outdoor dynamic, it has entertainment prowess and room for multi-generational living. A sense of in-outdoor cohesion comes from the easy flow of several living zones opening to a massive 100sqm deck as well as the architect-designed 7° tilt wall in the downstairs suite that optimises the gully outlook. A private deck off this versatile area opens to nature. Services are in place for the addition of a bar in the family area, a walk-in robe and ensuite in the upstairs master bedroom, and an ensuite in the second master-sized wing. Spacious children's bedrooms are equipped with double wardrobes. A casual family zone, independent of the main living areas at the front of the home, is flooded with light from a large double-glazed skylight. Brand new appliances feature in the open plan kitchen which is a vision of modernity and a feast of granite. The main bathroom combines luxurious touches and practical family features. There is a guest powder room, a well-equipped laundry and a walk-in linen cupboard. Storage is commodious throughout. Ducted gas heating keeps the interiors toasty and gas infinity hot water is ideal for family living. Smartly dressed in a contemporary colour palette, stylish fittings and high-performance materials, this home outshines for quality and comfort. The section is fenced and gated, has newly grassed lawns, ample parking, and garaging. Walking distance from CBD and FMG Waikato Stadium.
