Perfectly situated just opposite the Botanical Gardens, with spectacular harbour and city views and only a stroll from Wellington's CBD, this stunning residence embraces its iconic 1960s heritage. Originally designed by Bill Toomath, an extensive contemporary renovation has just been completed that preserves its architectural integrity while elegantly modernising it. The works included the demolition and rebuild of the top floor, extending the single garage to a double and a complete renovation of the ground floor. The property has been strengthened to code, has new luxury tiled bathrooms (three), glazing, plumbing, wiring, flooring and insulation.
This home also boasts a luxurious two-bedroom apartment on the lower level that has its own street entrance and that has also been fully refurbished. Perfect for rental, extended family or guests, or running a consultancy from home.
The home has expansive views from every room taking in Government House to the south across Oriental Bay and the harbour to the Hutt Valley and north to Khandallah. New rimu floors and luxurious carpet are present throughout. This together with gas central heating (or cooling) and a gas fire in the living room makes this a stylishly warm and comfortable place to live.
The new open plan German Palazzo kitchen is complimented with quality appliances, a superb outlook and a clean aesthetic so in keeping with its 60s pedigree. The three bedrooms are sun-filled and all enjoy fabulous views of this beautiful city. Outdoor living is enjoyed from two balconies and on the lower level there is a large lawn and landscaped garden including espaliered mature pears trees and camellia hedging.
Such a rare opportunity to own this much-admired, beautifully-constructed and uniquely-situated home - call to make your appointment or please come to one of our open homes.
