Breathtaking Harbour Views, Blue Chip Location
Have you been looking for that sun-trap property with unrivaled harbour views that are quintessentially Dunedin? Look no further. The spectacular North-West facing vista from 68 Doon street meanders right along the length of Otago Harbour; from Aramoana to the North right back to Saddle Hill to the south and across to the city and the mountains beyond- beat that!
Are you looking to invest in a safe, high value location? A popular and affluent suburb, Vauxhall is the smart place to buy and Doon street, with its fair share of million-dollar properties, is a no-brainer!
Remodelled in the late-1980s from a 1940s roughcast build this four bedroom (or three plus study) and three bathroom home on two levels offers an easy care, relaxed lifestyle. The proximity to the water gives it that beachy feel.
The interior is a sun-drenched combination of space and comfort. Neutral decor throughout adds lightness. The spacious and well planned kitchen flows effortlessly into the dining area which is positioned to take in the view. Two of the three bathrooms are ensuite and the spa bath in the main bathroom is an added luxury.
With a large separate lounge and roomy outdoor areas both downstairs with the deck and patio and upstairs with the balcony, there's so much capacity here for family flow and comfort. Barbecues are sure to sprawl from the concrete level of the patio to the sheltered box seating on the decking level, as guests find themselves at ease in this warm, open ambience. Spacious features such as these might make this the perfect home for those with older children or teenagers as well as the professional couple.
Other features include:
- substantial double-glazing on the upper level making it easy to maintain an ambient temperature;
- double garage with auto door and service-pit;
- off street parking for another two vehicles;
- large basement workshop or storage area great for keeping all those toys you can’t bear to part with;
- separate laundry handy to the clothesline;
- fourth toilet conveniently located on the ground floor;
- large floor-mounted heat-pump in the living area for when the sun just won’t shine;
- HRV ventillation;
- several storage cupbords;
- low maintenance exterior cladding (roughcast and fibre-cement);
- underfloor insulation.
The location of this property makes it a great choice for active people too: sea kayaking, yachting, and other watersports are a short distance from your doorstep, including the opportunity to immerse in a sailing school at the well-regarded Vauxhall Yacht Club. Cyclists will appreciate the newly paved, highly scenic cycle route along Portobello Road, and on Portsmouth Drive nearby, the Edgar Centre caters to a multitude of indoor sports.
The current owner of over twelve years loves life at 68 Doon street and is reluctant to sell but is feeling the pull to be with family elsewhere- this is your opportunity!
Arrive home from work, make yourself a coffee or pour yourself a cold drink then sit out on the deck and soak in the sun and views. Sound good? It is! Contact me today for more information.
