A Place to Realise Your Lofty Ambition
Deadline sale 14/12/17 (unless sold prior)
If you have better things to do than spend your time worrying about or working on your home, this easycare property will be a fine fit. The 1990s brick build with three bedrooms has sophisticated simplicity at its heart.
To start with the surfaces, you'll find the large-tile flooring across the kitchen, bathroom, toilet and laundry will shine with scant elbow grease. Heating is taken care of with a woodburner, heatpump and double glazing in the lounge, ceiling insulation and the home's sunny position; and you'll get no dampness trouble from the shower as it is contained in its own neat pod. But it's not just the basics here because the bathroom underfloor heating brings une touche de luxe. Indeed, the home's designers have not compromised on character for the sake of practicality. A pleasing colour scheme takes the ochre tones of the exterior indoors to the brick-red carpets, and then back outside again to the paint used in the decking, giving an overall sense of flow.
Another charming feature worth noting is the sky-lit loft, accessed by inbuilt ladder. Using this space as an office could help ensure a work-life balance because it is separated off from the family floor below. If used as a bedroom, it's the kind of space that children and young adults relish, giving them a sense of privacy and just a hint of the 'magic beanstalk climb' every time they go to bed. Alternatively, the loft can supersize the storage volume in a house that already boasts significant capacity. Outdoors, the landscaped garden is a low-maintenance shrubbery of hardy hebes & friends. This frames an asphalt driveway that zips right up to the large single-car garage, complete with auto door. The garage gives covered access to the home's side entrance, so you can transition smoothly and quickly from work day to domestic bliss. Located in desirable Waverley, this family home is in easy proximity to Grants Braes primary school, as well as both co-ed and single-sex options in the nearby secondary schools. With views across the harbour to the city, it's well away from the hustle and bustle in a private, quiet part of Dunedin.
Your inspection welcome.
