252 Portobello Road
SET YOURSELF FREE, TRANQUIL ESCAPE
No hyperbole required, this is truly a remarkable property. Occasionally an opportunity presents itself that must be grabbed with both hands and this is one of those.
With majestic uninterrupted harbour views that inspire the soul, this peaceful north facing property melts away life pressures.
The farmhouse style dwelling sits on over 1.64 hectares (4 acres); the space providing a relaxing sense of sanctuary. The feel is rural yet you’re just a 9-minute drive to the Octagon.
An asphalt driveway heads up from the foreshore to a parking area for multiple vehicles near the front door of the house so access is easy; in fact, there’s even a wheelchair ramp.
From the wrap around deck, you enter a light-filled open plan kitchen/dining/living room with lovely polished timber floors. Three sets of French doors lead from here to outdoor living areas maximising enjoyment of the all day and all year sun and fabulous view.
A separate lounge provides an extra living space and leads through to a short hallway accessing two bedrooms. The lounge and bedrooms have been recently carpeted. Both bedrooms feature quality wardrobes with inbuilt furnishings. Access to the deck from the master bedroom as well as the lounge is via two further sets of French doors.
A large Warmington woodburner in the lounge heats the whole house plus there’s a heat pump for convenience. You’ll never run out of firewood, you have your own pine forest!
A tiled bathroom with shower, basin, w/c is off the lounge as is the separate laundry and second w/c. There’s a bath too… it’s just not inside!
Grazing paddocks, a utility shed, woodshed, and workshop complete the rural scene.
Live the good life; grow your own veges, plant an orchard, get some chooks, keep bees, there’s plenty of room for sheep or better yet, alpacas!
Zoned Residential 1 in the proposed second-generation district plan subdivision possibilities exist.
Due to limited parking on Portobello road the open home times will not be advertised. Please call me for the set inspection times.
