Prime Location Alert! Nestled amidst the serene beauty of Ian Galloway Park with captivating vistas extending to Northland and Otari-Wilton's Bush, this majestic residence offers the quintessential Wellington lifestyle. Positioned at the cusp of sprawling Karori bushland, it provides unparalleled convenience to the city. Spanning across a generous 900m2 section, this home boasts a picturesque walk-through garden and a flourishing forested area, promising a tranquil sanctuary in the heart of nature.

Inside, the layout has versatility. The expansive master bedroom and two double bedrooms exude comfort, while the fourth bedroom offers adaptable usage, transitioning into a study, nursery, or walk-in wardrobe. For larger families or diverse needs, the second living area downstairs can effortlessly transform into an additional bedroom, tailored to your lifestyle. Alternatively, it could serve as a media room, spacious office, or cozy den. Below, a spacious walk-in basement offers ample space for a workshop or storage, catering to practical needs.

Boasting rich matai floorboards, a testament to the quality craftsmanship of 1940s New Zealand architecture, the home underwent updating in 2019. Fully rewired, re-plumbed, and with a new roof, it blends timeless charm with contemporary comfort. Renovated bathrooms, new carpeting, and insulation ensure year-round comfort and efficiency. Additional upgrades include insulation, and on the southern side of the property, an additional layer of aluminium cladding for enhanced weather resistance, increasing the home's appeal and durability.
