This architecturally designed home is full of charm and character. Private, peaceful, and sheltered, it also has a large established garden that attracts native birds. Whilst a comfortable home for relaxing, it is also perfect for entertaining. The house features a sheltered courtyard complete with BBQ and brazier, and a large living room extension with vault ceiling, and log burner.
Although spacious, the house is warm due to its insulation and fully double-glazed windows. There is also a cozy, smaller living room which offers the romance of an open fire, or the convenience of a brand-new heat pump. Cable internet is installed so there will be no interruptions for those Netflix binge sessions.
The kitchen provides a large oven with ceramic cooktop and adjoins the dining room, which has under floor heating and gives access to the courtyard.
The tour of the ground floor is complete with a laundry, toilet, and a single garage.
Upstairs there are four bedrooms. Two are of master bedroom size, the other two double rooms. One of the master bedrooms features an ensuite shower and sink; all the bedrooms have access to a bathroom complete with bath, shower, toilet, and vanity. The hot water is heated with a gas system so that it never runs out, and the water pressure is bruising if so desired. The bedrooms also provide stunning views of either the garden or harbour — views also available from the garden and, to a lesser extent, from the dining room.
Well known for its warm community vibe, excellent primary school, and pre-school creche, St Leonards is less than ten minutes to the city, University, and Hospital by car, and a mere twenty minutes by bike on the well-lit and safe cycleway. The house is also conveniently close to a well-serviced bus stop.
Pets are negotiable, smoking inside is not.
This is a lovely home that provides a warm, comfortable lifestyle, privacy and seclusion, and plenty of opportunity to host your family and friends.
