This breathtaking view is arguably one of the best in St Marys Bay with an elevated 180 degree vista encapsulating all three of Auckland’s iconic landmarks – the Harbour Bridge, Rangitoto and the Sky Tower.
Perched above the rooftops, the upper level of this sunny home has been designed to make the most of its grandstand position with floor to ceiling windows, sliding and bifolding doors and wrap around deck from which to chase the rays. From dawn to dusk the north-facing deck is bathed in sunshine. Where else could you enjoy your morning coffee with a view this grand; so breathtaking you’ll feel an urge to share it – it’s a great place to entertain from.
And here’s the thing, it’s quiet. With nothing more than birdsong and the usual sleepy suburban sounds, this little slice of heaven is a rarity in this sought after neighbourhood for many reasons.
There’s the land size (a generous 799m2) and the flat back garden easily accessible by folding doors from the lower level lounge and bedroom. With plenty of room to add a pool or playhouse this patch of green space, private and framed by trees is an empty canvas.
Built in 1923 and held within the same family for over 60 years, the original bones of this Californian Bungalow include character features of leadlight windows and bay windows. There’s plenty of space and a lot of storage. Three double bedrooms, two living areas, a study, spacious family bathroom and additional guest toilet. The open plan lounge, dining and kitchen occupy the entire top floor making the most of the views – it’s a warm home with plenty of feel-good factors. Move in and enjoy as is or bring your architect and create your dream home.
A one-bedroom cottage above the double garage boasts a sundrenched deck and its own private garden, potentially providing an additional income or accommodation for an au pair or extended family - there are just so many options to explore.
This elevated home, sitting on an unusually large land holding for St Marys Bay, must be viewed. Enquire early as opportunities like this are rare.
