Sited on the corner of Penrith Avenue and Strickland Street is this beautiful historic villa which is frequently admired by locals and passers-by alike. Established grounds covering 1,659sqm across two titles gives a wonderful feeling of privacy and seclusion which is difficult to find in such a central location. The Central City is 10 minutes by car or, alternatively, head out the front gate directly onto the new cycle path. This iconic villa was built around 1910 by a well-known furniture maker and the craftsmanship is evident throughout. The list of recent works completed extends far beyond what is conceivable, making this old villa more like a new home. In addition, the property has undergone a complete cosmetic makeover, has been re-wired, re-plumbed, re-piled, re-roofed, and the drains have been replaced. Grand scale proportions are evident throughout the 315sqm (approx.) home, in particular all three living areas are sizeable giving copious amounts of flexibility when configuring the layout to suit your lifestyle requirements. Charming features are evident everywhere you look – stunning rimu flooring, leadlight windows, high stud heights, and some of the most aesthetically pleasing detailed ceilings you will ever see. Perfectly suited for harmonious family living having five double bedrooms, two bathrooms, including the ensuite, as well as a separate out-building that comprises a large games room or studio (with toilet) as well as extensive garaging. Partial double glazing, two log burners and five heat pumps along with ceiling, floor and some external wall insulation ensures effortless comfort. The land area and developed gardens give the sense of a lifestyle property, yet the supermarket, restaurants and cafes are a short stroll away. Furthermore, the property is zoned for Somerfield School and Cashmere High School. Such quality real estate rarely comes available so be sure to not delay your inspection of this magnificent home.
