House Sold - Eastbourne Lower Hutt City
This spectacular mid-twentieth-century home, now truly coming into its own as a classic from the early 1950s, was originally designed by Cedric Firth of the architecture firm Plishke & Firth and is located in a private and tranquil garden originally conceived by the renowned garden architect Anna Plischke, wife of Ernst Plischke.
Discreet and mysterious from the outside, this property on a corner section with dual access features an entrance courtyard with covered access from both the garage and the street. From the courtyard one enters the entrance hall with its beautiful and light structure of the timber staircase to the upper level. The main living space, accessed by double doors from the hall, is a serene and very special room, with floor to ceiling double-glazed, tinted windows and sliding doors, running the entire length of the room, allowing a very special connection to the garden. With many, well established native trees both here and in surrounding gardens, the bird life is superb.
A spacious and well-appointed modern kitchen is equipped with excellent new appliances and storage facilities, and adjoins the dining area which also has sliding and stacking doors for wonderful garden connection.
With two bedrooms and a bathroom on each of the two floors, the house is well suited to couples or families, with every room providing interesting and varied views of the garden, the Lowry Bay area and the magnificent East Harbour Regional Park.
The double garage, the generous laundry and abundant storage throughout the house are all bonuses, as are the heating, insulation and double glazing.
This is indeed a very special piece of New Zealand architectural history, but not only lovers of architecture, and of mid-century modernist homes in particular, will find plenty to excite and inspire them here.
Viewing strictly by appointment. LIM and building report available to interested parties.
