24 Colchester Avenue, Glendowie, Auckland City 1071

It says a lot about this home that in 90 years it’s only been sold once. Two families have grown here and now it’s time for number three.

Charming character features retained throughout this gorgeous 1920’s home are complemented by the open-plan living spaces at its hub. The modern kitchen/family room flows effortlessly to sunny, north-facing decks, flat lawn and heated, custom-built pool, constructed around a prolific persimmon tree to look perfectly natural amongst the surrounding rocks. This is a private, sheltered oasis.

A super cosy separate lounge with log burner can be closed off if need be, and the large fourth bedroom which also flows outdoors would make a great rumpus. The dual aspect master has a walk through wardrobe and stylish ensuite, and the other bedrooms are also doubles. Added to this is a self-contained studio, separate to the main house, which may appeal to the artist in you. There’s even bonus boat parking!

Positioned in a highly desirable cul-de-sac, just up the road from Glendowie Park, School and College, and a short stroll to the local cafes and waterfront, you’ll have a hard job beating this if you appreciate the finer things in life that are a little less ordinary. Come see for yourself!
