Built to a grand style, this distinctive family home has a long history and a great view, as its name Ngaruroa (literally “Long Wave” or Long View to the Sea) indicates. Overlooking cultured gardens, its view extends down the Otago Harbour and across to the Pacific Ocean. At one time, pre-1900, it was home to the mayor of Dunedin.
Roughcast over kauri with corrugated iron roof, the home provides 300sqm of floor space comprising four double bedrooms (one with ensuite), large billiard room and formal dining, entrance foyer and open plan kitchen leading to formal lounge with fireplace. The wide hallway leads to main bathroom, laundry and a service area with shower room and storage. This area also has an exterior entrance.
Heating is provided by ducted heat pump to the hallway, bedrooms and lounge, plus there’s a heat pump in the kitchen area and a pellet fire in the billiard-dining room. And, yes, the billiard table stays.
Offering a 1642sqm section and a garden filled with fruit trees and meandering paths, it is a home that will delight families and provide the kind of space seldom found today. This would be a great home for entertaining, too, with recently renovated kitchen and large, character-filled spaces.
