AUCTION: WEDNESDAY 30 SEPTEMBER - 7:30PM ONSITE 1947 was a year of memorable events: Princess Elizabeth married Philip Mountbatten, the NZSO performed for the first time, there were two tsunamis in Gisborne, and the Watsons started to build with their own hands their new home on a sunny slope in 20 Ellerslie Park Road. They stayed in to enjoy the sweeping views for the next 57 years adding on a 3rd bedroom in 1957 to accommodate their growing family. In 2004 the current owners purchased this gorgeous stucco art deco influenced home and have spent the ensuing years lovingly renovating it. The results are stunning. Stripped back floors of matai and rimu glow in the hallways and kitchen. The bedrooms are all snug with sisal carpet. The master bedroom looks out to Rangitoto and Mt Wellington and has the unexpected bonus of a walk in wardrobe. The large modern bathroom with glass shower, tub for two and vanity includes a toilet but there's also another separate one for guests. The smart and spacious kitchen with masses of bench space and glass splash backs boasts a hideaway scullery and under-bench washing machine. A double sink, induction cooktop, and Asko dishwasher mean meals are a breeze to prepare and serve. Open to a combined living and dining room, this area basks in all the North West sunshine. With a Kent wood burner and Greenstuff insulation above and below, the whole house stays warm and cosy in winter. Walk out from the living areas onto a generous deck that has steps down to the terraced lawns with established fruit trees and low maintenance natives. Pluck a Lisbon lemon or Bearss lime for your G & T. The basement doubles as a man cave for pottering about and a large single garage with heaps of storage will accommodate the boards, skis and bikes with ease. Awesome neighbourhood and a very short walk to Michaels Park and the YMCA, this location is central to the motorway, Lunn Avenue, Ellerslie Village and local schools. They don't make them like this anymore this is the life you have waited for.
