Nestled in an enclave of high value properties in a highly regarded location on Napier Hill this beautiful two-level home designed in 1912 by the renowned architect Louis Hay is positioned to maximise the northerly aspect with the advantage of both levels opening to the outside. The home is arts and crafts style and has many ornate features, leadlight windows, native timber stairwell and tongue-and-groove wall panelling giving it a warm ambience.
On the lower level the entrance hall leads to three generous sized double bedrooms all with the bonus of built-in wardrobes. Adjacent to this, what might have been the original wash house, is a home hair salon providing home and income with the benefit of external access. This could be renovated as a full family bathroom / combined laundry.
The native timber stairwell leads you to the upper level where the designer kitchen will be a delight for any aspiring chef with a large island bench forming the hub of this home, perfect for bringing the family together and social events. Open-plan to this is the dining / family living room and the benefit of a separate lounge.
Also on this level the spacious master bedroom with built-in wardrobe indulges in all day sun. Adjacent to this a full bathroom which is liveable as is but lends itself to be turned into an en-suite with dual access.
Access to a north facing balcony which extends the front of the home will be a great place to relax and enjoy. The home is very liveable as is, or there is the opportunity to renovate. Easy-care grounds and a flat lawn area with good off street parking and a carport. An added appeal is being in the good school zone, an easy walk to Napier CBD and Ahuriri.
Be sure to view, you will be impressed.
