We have lost so many of our ‘Grand Old Ladies’ in recent times it is a true marvel to find a striking ‘Gentleman’s Residence’ so superbly reinstated.
This revival has retained the most glorious character features of the era, Halswell stone fireplaces and lead lights to name two, whilst equipping the new owner with modern convenience and comfort. From the ground up the house has been re-clad in linear, re-roofed, re-lined and re-plumbed. Central heating has been added and a new sympathetic double garage constructed. The older tandem garage is now a ‘crowd-pleasing’ games room with an abundance of possible uses for those with the need or the aspiration. The farmhouse style (and size) kitchen opens out to the rear north facing outdoor area for easy family living and entertaining. There is a true scullery with extravagant wall to wall shelving to meet any chef’s storage requirements. Light fittings and décor are breath-taking but it doesn’t stop there; landscaping is as you would expect complimenting the style and grace of the home.
The Merivale address is arguably one of our best and this house has alluring ‘street appeal’ in an already appealing street! “We thought we would be here for years” said our owners, however a relocation to Wellington necessitates the sale of this unique home.
The opportunity is now to secure and enjoy all that this remarkable home offers.
