The current owners of this classic Victorian home have lovingly restored and converted it to modern preferences, whilst retaining it’s charming features ready for the next owner to simply move in and enjoy. What’s more, we believe this is only the second time it’s been on the market in over 100 years.
The open, sunny aspect is ideal and the location is the epitome of convenience; walking distance to Dunedin’s finest schools, Maori Hill and Roslyn villages and the city. Step inside to a home that is warm, naturally lit, spacious and functional. The renovation of this home is a work of art and the attention to detail and thoroughness of the improvements will impress.
The kitchen and family space is open concept, designed to be social, and is well appointed with an induction cooktop, dishwasher and stone benchtops. A highlight of this space is the original cast iron range, that is polished and adds real character to the room. The lounge room at the front of the home has a beautiful feature fireplace and a new heat pump that is set in to the wall.
The bedrooms are spacious, come with built-in robes and the master includes a tiled en-suite with a freestanding shower and toilet. The newly constructed deck off this room takes in delightful views and brilliant sunshine. The family bathroom is elegant and finished to a high standard with a freestanding bath and shower.
Bonus features of the home include mains pressure gas hot water, ceiling, floor and wall insulation, quality window dressings and light fittings, two modern heat pumps, significant basement storage and reclaimed polished rimu floors through the home.
This home is all about the strong bones and period detailing of the original house, the stunning enhancements, and the ability to capitalize on the 843sqm of land on a corner section in the middle of Dunedin’s most prominent suburb. It’s certainly one not to miss.
