This must surely be the closest apartment to Merivale Mall you could possibly find! In the beating heart of the village, yet surprisingly quiet and secure, we bring to the market this lofty light filled apartment totally rebuilt from the ground up. The late Peter Beaven’s influence is felt more in the inner sanctum of true Merivale than in any other part of our city and this Mews development has all his trademark touches, an excellent example of his non-conformist work. Prior to the EQ, records show just how tightly held these apartment-style light and airy houses were, as they very seldom changed hands. Previous owners talk of the camaraderie of not just the 15 other residences but of the whole adjoining Merivale village literally just a few steps away. One of the bigger houses at around 140sqm, this one is elevated and striking, with an unobstructed north aspect from the sundrenched roof top balcony. Light filled and stylish, an open stairway soars to upstairs bedrooms and bathroom. The main bedroom opens to a sun-drenched terrace sheltered by high trees, a leafy and private oasis. Living and dining open to a deck with views over the lily pad filled pond, and there is internal access from the garage through a small hallway. This is an interior space which lifts your spirits! We believe this property would suit investors, empty nesters looking to downsize, professionals wishing to make the most of the popular location and short commute to work in the city, and even perhaps those with kids at boarding school and needing a town pad to be able to lock up and leave with no lawns to mow. In this location excellent school zones are a given, including Elmwood, Heaton and both our High Schools of course. Our seller relocated nearby while awaiting the outcome and is not inclined to make another move. For definite sale!
