Quality of CharacterA true measure of quality is the passing of time, the ability to resist the wear of the years and yet stay current, contemporary, and desirable today.
Designed by the renowned architect Charles Natusch this stunning example of New Zealand architecture was completed circa 1913. Famed for designing fine homes for wealthy families of the day, Natusch lived up to his reputation while building 18 Wairere Road. Extensive use of Matai, Kauri and stained glass, mated with generous internal dimensions results in a very subtle sense of grandeur without pomp.
The home can offer as many as five bedrooms if desired but is today configured with three bedrooms, the master enjoying a walk-through wardrobe and modern en-suite.
Living space is in abundance at this residence, in addition to large lounges and a modern, open plan kitchen with pantry the home boasts a study, heated pool, a library, separate laundry, cloak room, excellent storage throughout and even a trap door wine cellar. A standalone double garage and two off street parks are located at the front of the property. Gardens surround the home on three sides where a large, covered deck connects the kitchen to the outdoors. Securely fenced, flat spaces offer peace of mind with little ones and pets alike, while mature trees full of bird song frame a view out across the Hutt Valley and down to the sea.
Still till this day, 18 Wairere Road is an exceptional family home; upgrades to the kitchen, bathrooms and en-suite have been completed tastefully and the addition of central heating, insulation and a positive air pressure system ensure a warm and pleasant environment.
