Built to Last, and to Love!
Serious family home buyers will fall in love with Hazelhurst. This beautiful home’s prestigious pedigree is with the McSkimming family, who fired the very bricks and pipes on which the Victorian-Edwardian built environment in New Zealand depended.
A rare find, Hazlehurst retains the original period features created for its indulgent first owners: beautiful rimu staircase, decorative ceilings, leadlight porthole windows with floral motif, restored wood panelling, a timber archway, and statuette lighting, offset and updated with axminister carpets.
That said, the house has also been modernised in all the right ways. The kitchen, equipped with a 900mm-wide gas cooker and a walk-in pantry, opens to the dining room so that the chef in the family has a good space to work in while remaining able to converse with guests.
Central heating and some ceiling and underfloor insulation have been added to this double-and triple-brick building too, making it easy to retain the warmth in Hazelhurst.
This is a spacious home as its stately exterior suggests, with 3 double and 3 single bedrooms and 2 separate living areas, providing ample room for family and friends.
One of the several fireplaces has been modernised with a Jetmaster for a romantic flickering hearth, and a second is a solid fuel burner for some serious heat generation in winter. In addition, the home is positioned to capture lots of sun and is completely sheltered from southerly winds. The large, mostly level ½ acre section across two titles enjoys a microclimate and is a gardener’s delight, and a children’s playground-paradise.
The asphalted driveway in this quiet cul-de-sac provides off-street parking for up to 7 cars, while what was once a double garage has now been enclosed within glass doors to accommodate a home business and is wired for phone and internet. This glorious suntrap would be perfect as an artist’s studio, gym/yoga space or games room, or could easily be converted back to a double garage or workshop.
In terms of location, this quiet, tree-lined cul-de-sac is in prime position for a short drive to St Clair with its beach scene and cafes, or an easy stroll to the conveniences of the Caversham Village. The CBD is a five-minute drive away, and schools are within easy range and on bus routes.
Hazelhurst is available now for inspection.
