House Sold - Surfdale Auckland
One of the first cottages built when an island farm was subdivided into sections in the 1920’s, this stunning, full renovation sits proudly on a rise overlooking the bay, with views out towards Auckland.
With consideration of its heritage, all care has been taken to protect and respect its exterior, securing its future as one of the island’s oldest cottages. Timber walls are beautifully supported by concrete & ply. Wood bi-folds extend the living onto a wide deck with views out over the bay. To the rear, doors lead from the kitchen out to a north facing sun trap, which in evenings glow under festoon lights.
The kitchen is a work of art. The concrete bench conceals Smeg appliances and was designed to allow for food prep whilst taking in the view. The modernist bathroom includes a laundry behind a wall of plywood doors providing storage, tub, washer and dryer. Hot water is instant via gas.
On warmer days the air conditioner is welcomed. On cooler days, the heat pump can quickly warm this house, or the wood burner can heat and create a cosy atmosphere.
The king and queen bedrooms and a further kids bedroom provide options for this property including as a permanent residence.
The new septic waste water system including UV filtration, a reconditioned concrete water tank and new underground water pipes provide peace of mind that things not seen are as good as things seen.
While the owner is moving on to their next creation, they have said they’ll be available to continue to manage the house if required.
