Like a tranquil slice of country 2 minutes' drive to the Harbour Bridge, this large 1413m2 property beckons a family to a dream city lifestyle that's rare these days. A veritable playground, shaded in summer by huge gingko, liquidambar and poplar trees, where neighbourhood children gather on a sweeping lawn to play cricket. From generous living areas, a paved pathway meanders into the distance, arriving at a rustic timber garden shed which could convert to a studio. There's plenty of room for a pool and even a space for a second dwelling. The classic, beautifully maintained Edwardian villa is one of the original homes in Northcote Point. On an elevated site with views across the Harbour to the port and city skyline, you would never know it was here for it hides far from the road in a pocket of calm offering sense of security and safety.

The home has lovely proportions and many delightful original features including a wraparound veranda, matai floors, high ceilings, a traditional fireplace, the bricked chimney breast with a wood fire insert and large sash windows. With three generous bedrooms - the master with ensuite - and a formal lounge off a central hallway, it also incorporates the perfect work from home space downstairs with external access to the drive. The dining room and timber kitchen with walk-in pantry flow into the large, light-filled family area opening out through French doors to capture the sun in the afternoons while you dine outdoors beneath a wisteria-clad pergola. Parking is easy with a carport and 4 more off-street spaces. Superbly located a short stroll from Stafford Road Wine Bar, Bridgeway Theatre, the CBD Ferry and handy to Northcote Primary and College - experience the finest family lifestyle with the best amenities in Auckland.
