Auction: at Bruce Mason Centre, Takapuna on Thursday 23 July 2020 at 10:00AM (unless sold prior) With a definite nod to the architectural style of the 'Cape Cod' house, this charming early 1900's weatherboard home is positioned at the end of a cul de sac just off Devonport's prime waterfront.
Once home to Shonagh Koea, one of New Zealand's much loved writers, and recently the residence of a local painter, it's easy to see how this 'captains cottage' or home-by-the-sea captures the creative spirit.
Set over two levels and resting on its own easy-care freehold site of 304m² this is a unique property full of character and one prized for both its location and views.
With our vendor having already vacated, the property is now seriously for sale. Current layout offers three bedrooms, a main bathroom, an ensuite, living room, study and a generous french 'farm-house' kitchen. But do not let the existing configuration limit your imagination. Be assured, the possibilities on offer here are exciting and varied with original features such as native kauri floors and doors a warming reminder of the home's heritage and integrity.
On the upper level, french doors open to a small balcony while downstairs, the kitchen and study lead you out to a decked entertaining area where an easy-care terraced garden steps you up to a magnificent viewing platform. Here, close city and water views will have you thinking 'America's cup'.
With all the elements of good real estate firmly in place, this is your chance to step-in, add value and create a residence of special character. Indeed, your own home-by-the sea!
Perfect for professional couples, small families and those ready to down-size - with one last exciting project in them - 10 Spring Street is conveniently close to the ferry for down-town access to the CBD and within the beating heart of the village. A piece of Devonport history and a unique find.
We look forward to seeing you at our open homes - bring your vision. This is affordable Devonport and it will be sold!
