A 1900s Wellington home with a two bedroom annex is filled with potential

Matairoa comprises the original 3 bedroom home built early 1900s with 2 bedroom annex attached.

Upon entering the foyer, you pass to a spacious reception area. To the right is a living room with plenty of space to entertain. There is a separate dining area, seating 8+ people, serviced by a separate kitchen. Upstairs there are 3 bedrooms: a king size room with views: a double bedroom with chapel ceilings: a single bedroom with afternoon sun.

The adjoining apartment has a light living area, remodeled kitchen, 2 bedrooms; one large with sun and a double with afternoon sun.

The house was built by the first manager of Bellamys and known as ‘Glenfada’. Mrs Salmon, the daughter of Prime Minister W. Massey, changed the name to Matairoa; wide sweeping view. Later the adjoining apartment was added so family members could live close by but not with each other.

Several outdoor areas compliment the house; a sheltered sunny rear garden and to the north a raised area with views. The dwelling sits on 1232sqm approx. of land with sun, views, drive on, a double garage and parking for 4 more vehicles.

Close to either part of Thorndon, Premier House and the delightful Hillside Caf around the corner. The Botanic Gardens/town belt are a stroll away. Close to the city but your own quiet piece of paradise. Sit on the veranda and mull over the day with a drink while watching the city, harbour and eastern hills settle in the evening light.

This property has potential to make a fantastic family home, a home and income or embassy residence. You will need a healthy dose of energy and elbow grease but the effort will be soooo worth it. Your chance to own a special dwelling, a piece of Wellington history and make it your own.
