About this property
Raroa Terrace; known for its elevation and north facing position, is a fantastic place for families who want lifestyle while still being close-by to the action.
Custom auto-gates and feature gabion baskets at the entrance of No 10 give a hint of something special. An extensive renovation by Architectural Designer, Martin Northcott has resulted in a unique and timeless dwelling which our artist owners have found to be an inspiring creative space for their work over the past 13 years.
Downstairs is light filled, spacious and open plan with vaulted ceilings. The sun-room (the owners favourite space), receives all day sun and opens to an terraced entertainers deck leading to the large front garden. Contemporary kitchen has engineered stone bench-tops and a gas hob with separate dining area adjacent with easy access to the BBQ. Stylish Japanese shoji sliding doors separate the sun-room from the cosy lounge area which has built-in window seats. Also downstairs; a guest bedroom, master bathroom and laundry.
Upstairs can be configured to your family's needs with the living area doubling as a kids playroom, a home office or further bedroom. The kids will go wild over the bedroom with its own overhead loft, a perfect space for sleepovers & huts, providing hours of adventure and fun. The completely private master suite with dual access en-suite has a modest view of the city and an attached office/nursery. The home is warm by design but does feature a heat transfer system, heat pump and insulation.
There are two carports, one attached to the house with a zip down cover for winter purpose. At the rear of the property is a separate garage/workshop which ticks the man cave box. The fully fenced 1264m2 section has flourishing native trees attracting wood pigeon and Tui, with plenty of lawn for the kids to go free range. Zoned Oratia District School with school bus service to the street.
