137 Eglinton Road
Five Bedroom Bungalow Close to the Shops
Deadline sale Wednesday 04/10/17 4.00pm
Adorning Mornington since the early 20th century, this five-bedroom home is on the market for the first time in nearly 50 years. Presenting a rare opportunity for a large or growing family to move on in, this house is primped and primed to keep you cosy with character. Its underfloor and ceiling insulation, twin heatpumps, wall heaters, gas fire and HRV system mean you can shrug off Dunedin's winters, and then turn up the summer heat with a conservatory that seduces the sun.
The heritage charm is not limited to a handsome exterior: inside, the hallway has original hardwood panelling (a low-maintenance surface that can take the knocks), and the lounge retains its ornate plaster ceiling. Attic and basement provide the kind of storage you seldom see nowadays – ideal for all that stuff you just can’t bear to part with.
The master bedroom has an ensuite bathroom so you don't have to share, and the house has been retrofitted for mobility with a ramp at the rear. Convenience outside and in: the shops less than five minutes walk away bring a health centre, op-shop, chemist, supermarket, takeaways, cafes, bakery, post shop, ATM, cobbler, and vet virtually to your doorstep. Feel a bouquet coming on? No problem there's even a florist.
Recreation options are extensive, with a rugby club and skate park nearby, and endless places to explore in the swathe of the town belt that is this property's frontal outlook. Take a stroll through parkland that includes remnant lowland beech trees, a reminder of the forested past. You'll also have a flat, good-sized yard for play or private outdoor occasions. Your inspection welcome.
