Bungalow beauty in BelmontAuction Brought Forward to Thursday 29th July at 6.30pm, in rooms at 128 Hurstmere Road, Takapuna.
Families who seek a beautifully renovated bungalow on one of Belmont's best streets must inspect this stylish, spacious home. There are four bedrooms in the main residence, plus the added bonus of a separate fifth bedroom, studio or home office with ensuite above the garage.
The 524m2 freehold property (more or less) is positioned on the sunny side of the tightly-held street and enjoys a perfectly north-facing aspect. Belmont Primary, Belmont Intermediate and Takapuna Grammar School are within walking distance, as are the local shops and eateries. Takapuna and Devonport are a short drive away and commuters can catch the Bayswater ferry to the CBD or jump on the bus on Lake Road.
The renovation has been thoughtfully undertaken to celebrate the heritage elegance of the weatherboard bungalow, while creating spaces more conducive to family life. Perfectly balancing nuances of old and new, the front part of the home is original and has been tastefully refurbished to retain and enhance period features. There are four large bedrooms off the hallway, serviced by the family bathroom.
A small set of steps leads down into the expansive new extension at the rear - the open-plan living, dining and kitchen room. Soaring ceilings enhance the feeling of space and warm timber floors create seamless connection between old and new. Light streams in via the large sets of doors, which flow out to the entertaining decks, flat lawns and landscaped gardens. With its own entrance above the garage, the large room and ensuite make the ideal teenage retreat, extended family accommodation or home office.
The owners have adored the property and maintained it beautifully. They've purchased their next home, leaving it free for the next family to snap up this rare opportunity.
