17 Macville Road, Mount Maunganui
Passionately restored, capturing an essence of its 1950's origin, this luxe character bungalow with a photographic view to Mauao has recently borne witness to an all-encompassing, no-expense-spared restoration, breathing new life into its classic heritage. Leaving no stone unturned, perfection has been generously invested, raising the bar on quality, detailing and integrity. Embracing all-day sun, this secluded lodging is further enhanced by expert landscaping, well-established planting and sloping lawn for an attractive play space, a wealth of off-street parking and capacious deck privately screened by an intricate bamboo divider for open air entertaining. Distinguished throughout by matt finish rimu flooring, plaster mouldings and a period fireplace, beautifully blending old with new. Dining indoors is defined by a mid-century vintage glass pendant imported from London whilst a Carrara marble backdrop waits in the wings by way of a waterfall kitchen bench and backsplash, complemented by fresh white cabinetry. Well-warmed by a heat pump, woodburner and HRV system, so too do you benefit from partial double glazing, upgraded plumbing, rewiring throughout, on-trend lighting and pristine window dressings. Bedrooms are all spatially generous doubles and the separate powder room is to be admired with its wall hung receptacle and touch of class. Downstairs also fails to disappoint with top to toe plywood lining, ceiling insulation and carpet. Whilst incorporating garaging, this space more than doubles in size and encompasses a utility area to house bikes, surfboards and the jet ski then returns on itself creating a versatile multipurpose area of comfort for a rumpus, media room, wine cellar or work from home hideaway. Central Parade is merely a short walk for your eatery and amenity perks and being dual school zoned means you can take your pick of Mount or Omanu Primary. Pivotally positioned, this sweetheart of a home will captivate those dreaming of a beach-house lifestyle - with elegance.
