Elegant Family Home in Private Garden Serenity
Nestled discreetly within an idyllic garden setting this property has shades of Auckland's upmarket neighbourhood of Remuera about it. There is complete privacy here. It's not simply the fact the house hides down a long drive. It's the gardens. A large site around 1332 square metres of established grounds with the residence positioned amid the leafy tranquillity of established trees.
The house was born in the 50s - an era acknowledged for its refined lifestyle. The house has been lovingly maintained to retain its classical character while also keeping pace with the times. This is particularly evident in the kitchen and bathroom areas. Chic finish in the kitchen follows today's on-trend soft approach, while delicious red accents and polished timber flooring bring warmth and depth. Cooks will love the way the kitchen interacts with its breakfast bar area and the family lounge a couple of steps down. The colourful mood continues in this family lounge, before slipping outside to a charming, cobbled patio.
The mood changes in the adjoining room which is a little more traditional. While the design is open plan, the dining setting sits in a corner of its own - generous space for a large setting. As the room moves to the lounge, it's easy to imagine large family gatherings toasting festive occasions. Colonial joinery and pelmet finish are another tribute to the 50s' character - picture windows and French doors either framing the gardens or opening directly out to them.
Four bedrooms also accentuate the space within this home. The ensuite master sits on the ground floor, which is convenient. It offers single-level living for couples while having three bedrooms and a second bathroom upstairs for family and guests. Another feature is the extra space to work from home.
This is the perfect escape. Seemingly lost in its own world, this Glenholme property is so close to the city and recreation. Near golf, schooling, racecourse, Redwoods and city links; Sophia Street is an address to aspire to.
