Probably one of the best if not the best waterfront locations in Diamond Harbour. In the 15 years I have been selling properties in the Harbour this is the first listing I have had in this very sought after location. Situated on a 890m2 site, North/West facing for all-day sun and completely sheltered from the Easterly wind this is the first time in approx. 25 years this gem of a property has come to the market.
The 3 bedroom home is set over 2 levels, upstairs there are 2 bedrooms, 3 living areas, all opening onto the covered verandah, kitchen, bathroom and utility room. Downstairs is semi self-contained with a kitchenette, bathroom, living area and a double bedroom with its own external access so perfect for short or long term accommodation or extended family so a home that gives many living options.
The home is very tidy and original with some lovely timber features, is strong and warm with 2 heat-pumps and a wood-burner on wetback, well insulated and mostly double glazed. The garden is a delight, a wonderful mix of places to sit in total privacy, meandering paths, nooks and crannies, vege beds and established fruit and native trees and the icing on the cake is the access to a little known council reserve perched on top of the cliff overlooking Diamond Harbour and walking access to the beach, how often are we asked for properties with beach access and we don’t often get them.
At the bottom of the garden looking out to sea as if on guard is the historic wheelhouse of the 1909 ship The Breeze of which her remains rest in the Lyttelton Harbour, a lovely piece of history and an amazing wee room, perfect as a studio/sleepout or playroom. There is the added bonus of triple car garaging, one with high stud perfect for a boat or camper, plenty of off-street parking and a 2 minute stroll to the village centre to enjoy the cafe and library etc.
