A Sociable Secret!
* To download the property files, please copy and paste this link into your web browser - A contradiction indeed but sums up precisely what we have here! A fabulous big family home oozing character and space, unfolds from an unobtrusive driveway into a hidden utopia set on 1252sqm of park-like grounds with an entirely unimpeded aspect to the north and west. A large family home on a big section is a rare find in this densely populated location and we believe this special house is quite unique. This is a truly gracious home from the early part of last century and one that has been lovingly maintained and upgraded over the years. Beautiful modern luxurious bathrooms and a state of the art kitchen and laundry sit happily alongside lead light windows, high ceilings, and an abundance of white painted timber. This is a home capacious in every way. Three living areas, one completely separate, are complimented by two office spaces. Bedrooms upstairs are plentiful and private. Family life is extended outdoors with an entertaining zone under a vast covered verandah flowing out to terraces and a saltwater pool. This is pure teenage paradise! The garden is a credit to our owners with a magnificent border of flowering shrubs and substantial trees on the boundaries. Roses and other charming herbaceous plantings surround the house. With three private schools in close proximity, this can be a busy place at times, but your unpretentious driveway houses not only a generous double garage but off-street parking for at least four or five other cars! The location here speaks for itself in the inner sanctum of 'true Merivale' where a few steps takes you into Hagley Park and towards the CBD, and in the other direction to Merivale Village, all within walking distance. Firmly in zone for all our most coveted state schooling, new owners may be attracted by several private schools a leisurely stroll away. For the last fifteen years the property has hummed with activity but with the children now dispersed and the parents relocation to the beautiful Whangarei Heads, it is time to pass the paradise to another family. Come visit, discover a secret, and be surprised!
