This charming, character family home is conveniently located in the heart of Herne Bay, Auckland’s premier residential area on the north facing slopes of the unrivalled Waitemata Harbour.
Some of Auckland’s best restaurants, cafes and bars are within a short stroll and the bus to the city is also just at the top of the road. Walk down the street and you will find a variety of picturesque inner city beaches to explore.
Westhaven Marina is within easy walking distance and from there, for the more energetic, a magnificent, recently completed boardwalk will take you along the waterfront, past cafes and myriad yachts directly to the Viaduct Basin and the ferry terminal.
The character house constructed in the 1930s and with many of its original design features has 3 bedrooms, 2 bathrooms, and 3 living rooms, including separate dining room and study. The antique furnishings complement the style of the house yet the large kitchen and dining area is contemporary and well equipped with integrated fridge, Fisher and Paykel Dish Drawer dishwashers, everything the enthusiastic cook might need.
Both the kitchen and study provide easy indoor/outdoor flow into the private and secure walled garden. The manicured lawns are attractively surrounded with box hedging, star jasmine, citrus trees, espaliered quinces, herb garden and native palms. The outdoor dining and seating areas which catch the afternoon sun are sheltered from the summer heat by push button controlled awnings.
The property is elevated from the street giving added privacy and the front of the house affords views of the harbour, Auckland Harbour Bridge and the Sky Tower.
For comfort and convenience this property ticks all the boxes as the perfect base for exploring all the charms that Auckland has to offer.
