Designed and lived in by prominent Wellington architect Barry Ellison, this wonderful home with stunning views will be highly sought after by fans of mid-century architecture. The private position, sunny aspect and amazing views are the key selling points. The property shares a private laneway (shared by only 4 properties) allowing both drive on access and double garaging. The sunny rear courtyard leads to the front door which is positioned to allow a step down into the home, creating an expansive feeling as the high ceiling space opens up around you. The post and beam construction makes this both solid and architecturally interesting, while the neutral colour scheme allows sunshine and light to reflect throughout.
The accommodation on the entrance level is wonderful comprising a sunken living space with both wood burner and heat pump, opening onto a sun soaked deck with glass balustrades and an uninterrupted view. Walk through to the spacious entertainer's dining room and up to the well-designed kitchen, which also has room to relax. The "adult wing" comprises a super gorgeous bedroom with built in wardrobes, a stylish ensuite with free standing tub (with privacy glass), double vanity, superb built in joinery and a separate w.c. accessible for guests also.
Stunning timber surrounded spiral stairs lead down to the large office (easily 2 further bedrooms) and guest bedroom - all enjoying spectacular views and sun, at the same time as total privacy. There is another bathroom, with closet, on this level, making it an easy space for long stay guests to hang out - or potential for paying guests. R.V. $750K
