Enjoy views of Rangitoto from bed in this St Heliers home for sale

Occupying a prominent corner site on Riddell Road, number 785 is a spacious family home on a significant 842m2 property. The current owners have lived here for the past 18 years, having moved back up to Auckland from the South Island with their three young children. They were looking for an Eastern Bays home in great school zones – Churchill Park Primary and Glendowie College – with enough room for their kids to grow up. As soon as they walked through the front door they knew this was the place for them, instantly captivated by the welcoming spaces and elevated views over Glover Park and Rangitoto.

The neighbourhood is in good company, home to many of Auckland’s most impressive estates. Glover Park is just a few short steps away, a popular lush green space that hosts sports all-year-round and is a safe and expansive place for kids to play. The area is ideal for lovers of recreation, with a choice of parks and reserves perfect for walking and exploring, including Churchill Park and Glendowie Spit.

There are bus stops right outside, one on either side of the street, so public transport couldn’t be easier. St Heliers Bay village is a pleasant 15 minute walk from home, with its golden beach, cafes, restaurants and access to all that Tamaki Drive has to offer. The location presents a truly exceptional lifestyle for families.

The double frontage and well-established, immaculately landscaped gardens create an impressive roadside view, with the residence rising up three levels.  The owners have expanded the property over time, most significantly with an architecturally designed renovation to add another floor and create the master retreat at the top.

Inside, interiors are light-filled and warm, perfectly positioned to capture all day sun. All key living areas are on the second floor, with a high ceiling stud and solid Oak floors enhancing the open-plan layout. The kitchen overlooks the dining area, which then flows into the large lounge and tiled deck that wraps around two sides. This vast outdoor area acts as another room during summer, the perfect spot for dining and entertaining alfresco. From here, wonderful green views extend over the park and across to the Harbour Bridge, which is lit up beautifully at night

There are three sunny double bedrooms located down the hallway, which are serviced by the tiled main bathroom with bath. A wooden staircase arrives up at the top floor, with feature cedar shutters that can be opened and closed when required. The master bedroom enjoys the best views of the house, capturing snapshots of Rangitoto from bed. It also has an ensuite, walk-through wardrobe and separate office. There’s another living area and bathroom on the ground floor, allowing for excellent family separation. This has access to the vast, dry storage area beneath the house, which also makes a great wine cellar.

The back garden is fully fenced, so ideal for kids and pets, plus has a fruiting orchard of lemon, lime, grapefruit, apple, guava and feijoa trees. There’s off-street parking for four cars in the driveway, two under the covered carport or boat park. The double internal garage is oversized, so houses two cars comfortably, as well as all the extra tools and toys.

This spacious residence boasts the dimensions and location perfect for families.
