This spacious Takapuna home for sale is a family dream

Tucked away at the very end of Byron Ave in Takapuna, number 45a is a wonderfully private, 1922m2 estate. It’s been cherished in the same family for the past 51 years, procured as a tiny bungalow with plenty of potential in 1968. While the vast grounds and incredibly central location make it the ideal family retreat, residential zoning for terrace housing and apartment building also make it an enticing prospect for developers.

The benefits and appeal of the location are undeniable – relishing absolute tranquillity at home, but just an easy, five-minute walk from Takapuna’s shops, bars, cafes, restaurants and incredible golden beach. The motorway onramp is under a minute’s drive away for commuters and the neighbourhood in zone for excellent Decile 10 schools.

The cedar weatherboard residence has been updated and extended over time, with the main renovation undertaken by renowned local architect Geoff Richards in the early ‘90s.

The vision for this transformation was to dramatically increase the space and indoor/ outdoor flow, embracing the gentle slope of the north-facing site for maximum light and sun exposure throughout.

Located down a long driveway, the property is set back from the road and can fit up to four cars parked in front of the double internal-access garage. The north-west facing grounds are located within their own sheltered microclimate, protected by the towering macrocarpas along the southern side. Gardens have been lovingly planted and tended over the years to burst with colour throughout the year’s cycles, with lawns flattened and retained to become more useable outdoor areas. The lower lawn is expansive enough for a full cricket pitch and has served as a fantastic family outdoor space over the years. As the property was historically an orchard for the original homestead next door, it’s also filled with fruit trees.

Inside, the large country style kitchen overlooks the expansive and light-filled dining area. A small flight of steps arrives down to the separate lounge room, which has a wood-burning fireplace for cosy winter evenings and a deck enjoying lush native bush views. There are three bedrooms located throughout – two upstairs, including the master with bay window seat, with the third on the ground floor. This level also has a wine cellar and expansive rumpus room/ home office space.

This unique landholding has the proportions and potential to complement all kinds of reimagined design concepts for fantastic family living or development in an incredibly central, Takapuna location.
