- Eastbourne Lower Hutt
Ian Athfield’s creative genius is at its best here: his mastery of creating spaces for living combines with a stunning Bays location, fabulous sun and breathtaking harbour views.
This home oozes authenticity: it has been lovingly lived in and presents well in its mainly original condition. Built for its one careful owner, who loved this private site, nestled in the bush and with its spectacular sun aspect and views across the harbour. Drive on access leads up to the property, first you see the view, then the delightful vision of the home. There is nothing ordinary here.
Compact and efficient, accommodation is divided over two levels. Two spacious bedrooms each enjoy clever built-in storage. The kitchen is semi open plan with beautiful shelving and a huge walk-in pantry. The lounge opens to the deck and views beyond. Indoor outdoor flow, ahead of its time, is provided by a multitude of exterior doors. Practically, a heat pump provides heating while hot water and cooking are both electric. There is a spacious family bathroom with original claw foot bath and separate shower. A good-sized garden shed is great for storage outside, while inside are lots of storage cupboards as you’d expect from Ian Athfield.
