Perfect On Putnam


TENDER BROUGHT FORWARD – now closes: Monday, 15th March at 4:00pm (not selling prior).
Occupying a coveted position in one of Wellington’s favourite streets this character home epitomises everything there is to love about this highly sought-after location. Arrive to your easy drive-on double garage and the front garden of native planting leads you up to the front door to your sunny, private family escape. The home has the advantage of a slight elevation above the road where you feel like you are arriving somewhere very special and tranquil; and where wonderful harbour views and all day sun await.
The current owners commissioned a full renovation and rebuild by award-winning architect Chris Kelly from Architecture Workshop in the early 90s. This renovation updated the flow of the existing modest bungalow and created a stunning family home which embraces a contemporary lifestyle and maximises the fabulous views. The seamless flow to verandas, gardens and lawns on both the east and west sides of the house ensure you have all days sun to entertain and play. In addition to formal and family living this home provides all the practicalities required by busy families. Four bedrooms including one on the entry level (with its own bathroom, perfect for guests or extended family) and master bedroom on the upper level along with another two bedrooms and family bathroom. The kitchen is well designed with views onto the back lawn and out to the harbour. Stained native timber floors, original ornamental ceilings and leadlight windows add to the charm and character of this exceptional family home. In its 90 year history there have only been two families living here which is a wonderful testament that this house suits babies through to teenagers requiring their own space. Why consider renovating when this has house has it all – come and have a look and see for yourself.
An easy walk to Northland School, and zoned for Wellington Girls College and Wellington College. Northland, Kelburn and Karori are close by and you can commute by car, bus, bike or walk to Wellington’s CBD.
