Steeped in old-world charm and naturally calming as soon as you walk through the door, this spectacular seaside sanctuary built in the early 1900's boasts a grandeur you'll immediately fall in love with. Occupying two substantial separate titles just four doors down from the beach, part of this property's charm is hearing the ocean while you sleep! While the surrounding hills, fabulous family section and incredible location only add to the wow factor.
With ocean views from upstairs, the house itself has three double bedrooms, two bathrooms (including a master ensuite with underfloor heating), a bright and airy open plan kitchen/dining/living area with a well-appointed modern kitchen and doors opening out onto a private veranda, plus a gorgeous formal lounge with beautiful leadlight windows and a large gas fire you'll want to curl up in front of. Off the main house, there's a separate studio/sleep-out which has a large bedroom overlooking the garden, plus a bathroom and separate laundry - the perfect office or teenager's bedroom. Recently modernised to make it warmer and even more beautiful, completing the appeal is a nitestore heater, excellent insulation and partial double glazing.
Perfectly positioned to the sun, the fantastic family adjoining section on a separate title (364m²) is a great place to chill and soak up the sun. Newly fully fenced for privacy, the large patio, decked verandah and BBQ area is great for entertaining, while the large manicured garden came about when the current owners bought the next-door property (number 8), expanding the space significantly, increasing the opportunity to add value, and flooding the property with even more sunshine. The last street in Sumner to lose the sun, those long, lazy summer evenings can be your reality.
Situated just off Sumner's Esplanade, the ocean literally feels like it's your own backyard - perfect for wandering down with your morning coffee. Peacefully set back from the main strip, traffic and weekend visitors are nowhere to be seen, while great neighbours and the local shops, schools and parks being within walking distance only add to the strength of your investment.
A breathtakingly beautiful beachside home with huge potential to make the house bigger or add a pool or tennis court, anything is possible with a sunny section this size in Sumner. Lovingly looked after by the current family, it's with a heavy heart that they put their home up for auction. Yet they hope the next lucky owners make as many wonderful memories as they have over the years. TC2 Land - Green/Yellow
