This character two-storey residence occupies an elevated position on Napier Hill with views out to Cape Kidnappers. Architect J A Louis Hay was responsible for the upstairs extension of the present home in the 1920's. The home has had several recent renovations, with period features retained that make this home so special. The property is in excellent condition throughout.
On entry you will be taken with the interior of the home, which is beautifully presented with extensive Rimu finishing, original lead lighting, polished timber floors and high stud ceilings. Decorative elements have been added by the current owners, including high quality drapes throughout.
This home offers exceptionally comfortable year-round living and is perfectly suited to host family and friends for large scale get togethers.
A modernised open-plan kitchen with plenty of bench space and separate scullery will delight any home chef. The kitchen opens to a good size, light filled dining room and in turn to a large, tastefully decorated lounge. A fully enclosed verandah off the lounge offers a fabulous extra room, with French doors made to be thrown open during the summer months. Outdoor entertaining is principally on the northern side of the home, recent improvements include extensive decks and attractive landscaped gardens.
Bedroom accommodation upstairs is equally comfortable, well-appointed and with great views. The master bedroom is of a generous size with excellent wardrobe space and an en-suite. A family bathroom services the other three bedrooms.
There is level access to the property, and off-street parking includes a single garage, carport, and space for visitors. A desirable location that is convenient to the CBD and Ahuriri village. Excellent schooling is available at all levels, with Napier Central Primary School, Napier Girls High School and Sacred Heart College only a short walk away.
