House Sold - Eastbourne Lower Hutt City
OPEN HOME CANCELLED: This property has been sold pre-tender
This a wonderful property. More than a house, it is an icon, a home, a place where memories have been and will be created. The house tantalises the imagination. The concrete and plaster style cladding with tower and chimney stacks speaks immediately of Athfield. This continues inside with the superbly intimate dining room, connected by the classic Athfield open circle-in-the-wall and the large tile-floor lounge: with doors opening to the garden, this family friendly space is resonant of French farmhouse style and will appeal to traditionalists as well as Athfield fans.
The galley kitchen looking over the garden has space for children to dine or do homework under supervision. Three lovely large double bedrooms, each with plenty of timber to create warmth, and pleasant decor, form the mainstay of the sleeping accommodation. The tower, with its shower room and meditation room, plus the study space or 4th bedroom, add interest and floor space to this wonderful home.
To the front is 2-car parking, a terraced area and small lawn, which wraps around the house leading to the orchard garden: a fabulous playground for children
Athfield was a genius when it came to interesting and appealing spaces. But this house is more than a celebration of his work, it is positioned on a much loved Days Bay street, in a neighbourhood where children are safe and neighbours are friends.
Tender closes Thursday 14th February 2019 at 2.00pm (if not sold prior)
