The unique appeal of your character bungalow lies in its meticulous preservation, incorporation of modern comforts and CBD fringe location. Built 1920-1929, your quiet home is an uplifting four bedroom family sanctuary full of delights. It nestles in a private landscaped environment that complements the period of the home. Indoor-outdoor flow allows you to optimise the sunny decks, patios and trim-kept gardens, which are a real picture.
At one stage of its life, your bungalow served as a doctors' consultancy and remnants of this era remain and enhance the vintage appeal. In more recent times some sensitive modernisation has occurred particularly in the kitchen area, which has been opened out and married with the dining room. A big picture window over the sink frames views across the city to the Raglan hills. Your kitchen has gas cooking, Bosch dishwasher and walk-in pantry.
The rear of the home contains a large laundry, utility space, shower and second toilet. Espaliered star jasmine for colour and fragrance. Raised gardens and plantings that complement to the period of the home. Hedges, roses, fruit trees.
A big covered front verandah with seating provides a warm welcome to your home. Interiors are infused with light, ducted underfloor gas heating, polished native timber floors and beautiful period detailing. A sunroom eases off your lounge and the bathroom has a shower over spa bath. Storage is abundant.
The layout features three bedrooms at ground level and a super-sized fourth bedroom upstairs, which can serve as a teen's retreat, office or rumpus. Leafy elevated views capture Boundary Road Bridge, the city, Waikato Stadium and Raglan hills.
There is a double auto garage with an attached workshop, a carport and generous off-street parking. Your home is alarmed and had an exterior repaint 18 months ago. It is zoned for Hamilton Boys' and Girls' High and ultra-handy to the CBD, which is just across the bridge. LIM report available.
