A hidden gem at the heart of the Devonport village

Located at the very heart of Devonport and relishing a prized, inner village position, this stylish 1930s bungalow is a dream come true for young families, as well as those looking to down size and yearning for a location that could not be more convenient.

Rattray Street’s quiet cul-de-sac is centrally located just off Devonport’s main road, with The Vic cinema at the corner and the village’s cafes, bars, restaurants and shops within easy walking distance from home. It’s this incredible convenience and connectivity that means a car is barely required, with the ferry arriving at Britomart for the train and airport bus, not to mention the excellent public transport routes in and out of Devonport.  The library and new soon-to-be-completed waterfront playground make life even better for kids, as do the many beautiful beaches, bays and parks located around the sought-after harbourside suburb.

A deceptively modest street-side presence ensures an excellent sense of privacy, with the single-level character home flowing out to a wonderfully surprising garden oasis at the rear. This expansive north-facing area is flooded with sun all day, filled with flower gardens, flat lawns, a paved terrace and raised deck, all fully fenced so ideal for young kids and pets.

The composition of the home is also highly conducive to family life, with all the living on one side and the sleeping accommodation peacefully located on the other side – the true benefits of the bungalow style. The kitchen has its own snug living area which is a real sun trap and perfect for keeping an eye on the kids, or sharing stories of the day whilst dinner preparation is in full swing. The dining and more formal living areas flow seamlessly to the outdoor al fresco living and on to the gardens beyond.  A true entertaining haven.

Charming heritage features are in abundance throughout the home, including ornate bungalow ceilings, original lead-lights, bay windows, panelling and intricate joinery, which have been complemented with modern bathrooms and stylish interior decor. Three large and light-filled double bedrooms all have built- in storage, with the spacious master boasting its own ensuite and bay window seating area. A drop down ladder provides access to the attic office space, illuminated via skylights and with a peek of the sea on one side.

While already extremely convenient, comfortable and charming, there’s exciting scope to add even more value to this village centre sanctuary. Plans commissioned include going up a level to capture the harbour views, and can offer inspiration as to what might be.

It is very rare that a peaceful oasis can be found in the centre of such a bustling village.  To be so close to everything, and yet to feel so far away is an absolute gift to be treasured and is what makes this charming home so very unique.
