An established haven of peace and privacy
Create your own family history in this grand home.
It's one of those rare gems, an heirloom residence standing proud, surrounded by over 4650m2 of private park-like grounds, complete with a lawn tennis court. The solid
post-war bungalow sits on a corner section in Dannevirke which is "central to everything", complete with 5 bedrooms, vege garden, chicken coop and trees to climb, the family will have enough space to play, grow and spread their wings. Throughout the home the solid rimu doors, architraves, scotias and windows are all original and the boxed beam ceilings, tall stud and exceptional leadlight windows speak of the superior craftsmanship used when this home was built. One enters the house via wide concrete steps to the front door, which opens directly into a large family/dining area, large enough to hold a banquet size table, this is a great area where the kids congregate and watch television. The sunny kitchen is modern, practical and easy to work in, a typical scullery kitchen representative of its era. The large adzed brick fireplace in the family/dining area is a special 1920 feature, but not adequate to heat the whole 300 sqm residence so a large Masport wood burner in the formal lounge that is ducted throughout the home has proved it was money well spent. The formal lounge is intended for adults and friends, but when the fire is roaring, it's the cosiest place to be. Rimu double doors with bevelled glass panels separate the two rooms. The side panels are highly detailed leadlights, and reflect the quality fittings throughout the house. A third living area enters off the formal lounge and provides excellent indoor-outdoor flow onto the massive deck, perfect for entertaining family and friends over the summer months. The local primary and secondary schools are within walking distance from this property, so this home is must see for a family who will enjoy its size and location.
