Escape to your own private and peaceful family retreat in this superbly presented Lockwood home on generous parklike grounds sprawling over 898 sqm (approx.) within a secluded rear section. A place where children can safely play, and adults can relax with friends outdoors on long summer evenings - with room to even put in a swimming pool if desired. The home lends itself to those seeking something special for the family - in walking distance of highly sought-after Matua School and the popular waterfront playground at Fergusson Park. Multiple living spaces beneath soaring raked ceilings serve four-bedroom accommodation with the ground floor comprising large sun-filled areas to cater for any level of entertaining with easy and seamless indoor/outdoor flow. Natural timbers, designer lighting and a warm north-facing aspect create a cozy glow with the ambiance evoking a coastal vibe while contrasting soft grey/blue hues are harnessed to stunning effect. Formal living and dining areas open to ample decks wrapping the ground floor and a modern kitchen with Caesarstone counters flanks another generously proportioned family lounge. Three double bedrooms all boast truly cavernous storage and closet space - so ideal for teenagers and their accumulated gear. The bathroom, toilet and laundry are all newly renovated and display on-trend fittings with tiled floors. On the upper floor, the parents will be able to enjoy chilling out in a third mezzanine lounge with the large master bedroom having an ensuite and balcony for Matua views. The 45 sqm (approx.) garage has room for all that a home handyman could want while attic stairs lead to a further mezzanine space overhead for more storage. Beautifully manicured and landscaped grounds incorporate mature trees, lush plantings and raised vegetable beds getting ready for a summer harvest. In a pivotal location near the Tilby shops, beach walks, sports grounds and the school, this exceptional property is a rare diamond dazzling with the features.
