About This PropertyIf these walls could talk...
For sale for only the second time since it was completed in 1950, this beachfront landmark's potential and position are as breath-taking as its postcard-perfect views of Kapiti Island.
Leading art deco architects of the era designed it in the 1940s as a three-bedroom holiday home for a Wellington family who loved to entertain. They owned the property for 55 years and scarcely anything's changed, save for an exterior repaint true to its heritage. The floor plan remains as original as the untouched fixtures and features, from the leadlights to the light fittings, fireplace and built-in cabinetry.
Some essential repairs have been undertaken in the past 15 years. But this unique home is selling "as is" to buyers who will cherish the opportunity to rejuvenate its amazing character or who wish to capitalise on the extraordinary 834sqm* setting complete with flat lawn, garage, workshop and off-street parking in a brilliant blue-chip, blue-water location.
