This graceful 1930s character home has been completely renovated; tastefully combining heritage charm with modern style and creature comforts. With thoughtful detailing and improvements throughout, 1 Thornycroft Street is now as practical as it is beautiful, and it is ready for new owners to call it “home”.

The site totals 1050sqm in size, offering multiple areas of enjoyment and plenty of scope for change. Immaculate hedges, roses, and trees frame a picturesque north facing lawn; a tranquil view to relish from both outdoors and within. Downstairs, in the impressive chefs kitchen, sunlight spills upon the granite bench top through beautiful french doors which open to a private outdoor courtyard. The separate utility room, ample storage, and full modern bathroom are sure to aid a busy family routine, as is the large family living space which connects to both the kitchen and dining area.

The separate formal lounge, complete with a gas fire, reading nook and another set of french doors to the main lawn, creates a haven for the adults to enjoy. A grand staircase leads up to the sun drenched study (or fifth bedroom), a second bathroom, and four large bedrooms, the master of which has a beautiful ensuite. With new carpet and freshly decorated walls, these rooms are as much a delight to spend time in as the ones below.

Only top quality products and materials have been used in the restoration of this home; the enormous granite bench top, customised double glazing, full insulation, and rimu woodwork throughout are but the start of an impressive list. The home also features three heat pumps, underfloor heating in all bathrooms, and of course the beautiful gas fire which will make winter a season to look forward to.

With a double garage as well as enough space for up to four cars (or perhaps a boat or motorhome), 1 Thornycroft Street is indeed the full package.
