About our home

Three bedroom home with lots of trees in a quiet tree-lined street. The house has been added to and renovated over the past few years, with some work still to be done (due for completion late 2020/early 2021).

The renovated, spacious master bedroom has a new ensuite and walk-in wardrobe. It is on the top storey and overlooks a beautiful, private garden of native trees.

Two mid-sized bedrooms (yet to be fully-renovated, but clean and warm) are downstairs, along with a small fourth bedroom, which has been renovated and is currently used as a gym. There are two large living areas downstairs - one renovated and currently used as an art studio - but could be a used as a lounge or extra bedroom.

The other living area is next to the kitchen/dining area, and both of these rooms are yet to be renovated. However, they are still sound, warm and tidy. There is a renovated butlers kitchen and laundry off the kitchen/dining area.

Mufasa the friendly Siamese cat is a permanent resident if you don't mind cats, but he can go to the cattery if necessary.

Richard's father Bob lives independently in the separate flat at the back of the property. He refuses to go to the cattery, so you need to be comfortable with an elderly neighbour. The good news is that he is very quiet (apart from the occasional Beethoven symphony) and likes to keep to himself.

Shops, restaurants and beach are close by and we are 45 mins from the capital city, Wellington.
