Back in the mid 1960's, while the world was giddy with Beatle-Mania, iconic Architects Adams & Dodd were busy at their drawing board designing the "Bing Hing" townhouses. 55 years on, the enduring appeal of their creation proves that great design will always be in vogue.
Constructed of timeless cedar and robust concrete block, and cleverly off-set to provide peace and privacy from the neighbours and road. A stylish & sympathetic renovation has resulted in a slick modern palate, to complement the modernist features retained throughout.
Upon entry, friends will be invited up the timber staircase to a gallery landing. Enjoying an elevated vista to the North, the expansive living and dining area opens through large sliding doors to a private balcony - the perfect spot to enjoy an aperitif or BBQ. The sleek designer kitchen is specified with high quality appliances, sure to delight the most discerning chef. Three bedrooms on this level are serviced by a luxury bathroom, with the Master opening to the sunny balcony.
Downstairs, this semi-self-contained space is an ideal retreat for teenagers, guests or grandparents alike. Alternatively, this could provide an extra income stream, or functional work-from-home solution. The generous living room with kitchenette opens to a terrace, private lawn & garden. An oversized 4th bedroom (with ensuite) has direct access to the outdoors.
A lockup garage/laundry & double carport are sheltered from the elements, with off street parking to accommodate multiple cars, or perhaps the caravan & boat?
Zoned for St Thomas's, Selwyn College, and handy to Eastridge and the Bays' beaches, boardwalks & cafes.
