House in Bellerive
- 5 Beds
- 2 Baths
- 1 Car
With a prized position on the northern side of popular Bellerive Bluff, this beautiful 5 bedroom family home is certain to be in high demand. Built in 1935, it is an excellent example of the era with nice bay window, picture rails, high ceilings, stained glass windows, wide entrance and nicely proportioned rooms.
It also has lovely street appeal occupying a corner position with glorious mountain and river views, and of course, all day sunshine. It sits on a large block (around 900 square metres) with a separate studio apartment or games room in the substantial flat back yard with off street parking. Splashes of cornflower blue, white and sandstone add to its authentic appearance and appeal. In fact, looks deceive as the home is much larger than it looks from the street.
Its location also means it is just a short walk to Bellerive Quay, the yacht club, Bellerive village, schools and Eastlands, as well as the famous beach walks and cycleways of the area.
Besides retaining the best features of the period, the property has had major renovation, including a brand new kitchen and dining area, north facing and bathed in sunshine and warmth. The all white kitchen with central island bench and lots of storage, is a stunner and will be a popular entertaining spot for family and friends. The renovation also included a new family bathroom.
The southern corner of the home has been made into an income earning option and is currently rented out as a one bedroom self contained unit, with its own entrance, but this could easily be integrated into the mix as a teenager's retreat or granny flat, as it is part of the main home, separated only by a single door.
There are three double bedrooms on the ground floor, and two attic style bedrooms on the top, perfect for youngsters or teenagers.
The garden is beautiful, encompassing a vegetable patch, pond, garden shed with toilet and room to play and enjoy the fantastic location.
A real period gem that provides so many options for the family.
