Nestled down a quiet driveway this unique example of renowned New Zealand Architect Roger Walkers work is set in an oasis of beautiful New Zealand flora and fauna.
On arrival you will be captured by the sounds of Tui, Kereru, Riroriro, Kakariki and Piwakawaka who visit to play amongst the Kahikatea, Pohutukawa, Tawa and kowhai trees.
This is truly your own private natural New Zealand forest, with pathways leading you through the property under the canopy of the trees to the BBQ area below.
The house was built in the 1970s using exterior wood with Rimu joinery featuring both polished Rimu floors and carpet, and still retains the uniqueness of Roger Walker’s architecture of its era. The two living areas seamlessly flow to the large wrap around verandah through to the expansive outdoor living area where you can perch amongst the trees and equipped with an outdoor bar and wine cellar. On the main floor is a twin bedroom and family bathroom plus separate shower room, then two separate staircases take you to the upstairs bedrooms, on one side 2 bedrooms and on the other a large main bedroom suite with seating area or office, and bathroom. Double garaging with internal access and plenty of off-street parking complete this family home.
While you will feel a world away from the hustle and bustle of the city you will enjoy the easy access to the Birkenhead village, cafes, restaurants, local walking trails, beaches and motorways and the bus stop is right across the road for a quick trip into the city.
The current owner has cherished this property for 19 years, now it is time to pass the guardianship onto a new owner to treasure.
