Marketed by Lesley McLellan

Make this treasured and charming family home your own. Formerly owned by the artist Charles Goldie, it is now owned by perfectionists and has been recently renovated to the highest possible standard. This home is much improved from the time the shy and reserved painter Charles Goldie resided here in the 1930s. Sitting privately behind a high hedge on a 696sqm section is this gracious 1930s Arts & Crafts home. Soaring ceilings, fine building materials, chandeliers, elegant paned windows, and the Marseille tiled roof will delight the traditionalist who yearns to own a quintessential character home. The new owner will appreciate the craftsmanship and intelligence that has created this very solid piece of Double Grammar, Remuera Real Estate. Four large bedrooms (the master bedroom flirts with Orakei Basin), two bathrooms, a powder room and a formal living room complete the home. Open plan living and dining open to a verandah that has elevated views across Remuera's northern slopes. This a gorgeous place for that end of day glass of rose with friends. Stairs lead to a double garage/studio, storage under the home and a vegetable garden. Currently this garage is set up as a Billiards room, however it has beautiful wooden floor where a ballet dancer could perfect her arabesques or perhaps an interior designer could display beautiful fabrics. Cars can be parked securely behind electric gates at the rear of the property. Just across the road, the sparkling Orakei Basin provides divine walking tracks perfect for strolls with the dog or a late afternoon run. Within ambling distance is Benson Road village where you'll find welcoming cafes, restaurants, boutiques and florists that might prove far too tempting on a lazy Sunday morning. I hope this picture I'm painting draws you to view Goldie's former home
