This absolute prime piece of real estate comes to market for the first time in 41 years. Occupying a treasured 1726sqm parcel of land on an elevated site that has views across nature, roof tops and Hamilton Lake, the property is a rare find.
It nestles at the end of a long drive in a peaceful setting footsteps from the lake and easy walking distance into the heart of town. Poised on the site is a character home built circa 1930-1939. With five children having been raised here, it contains a wealth of happy family memories. Some 10 years ago the home underwent an extensive refurbishment. Kitchen, dining and casual living were amalgamated into a cohesive open area spilling onto entertainment courtyards. A modern stone-surface kitchen was added, along with a gas fire, gas cooking and gas hot water. The bathroom was upgraded but the original big claw-foot bath was retained. There is a second toilet off the large laundry.
Four bedrooms and a spacious lounge round off the home. Both the master bedroom and lounge frame district outlooks. Abundant sun, lake views, a Mt Pirongia vista and a panorama of stunning sunsets from the lounge make it a special spot to spend time in.
Native timbers and beautiful retro features retain the home’s character while tidy gardens add a flourish to the courtyards. Fruit and specimen trees adorn the sprawling section where outbuildings include a double auto garage and several sheds. This is fantastic land-bank or development opportunity in a sought after boutique location zoned for Hamilton Boys’ and Girls’ High. Hamilton’s lake area is renowned for its lifestyle attributes, proximity to the CBD and Waikato Hospital.
Four decades on and this property stands ready for a whole new chapter in its evolution.
8 Kotahi Avenue, Beerescourt, Hamilton
…with modern living. Located in the tightly-held residential enclave of Kotahi Avenue, this undeniably appealing property is a home for all seasons. Discretely positioned to maximise privacy and take full advantage of the sun and river views, this stately home straddles two eras. It encapsulates the grace, elegance and craftsmanship of the 1920’s while offering all the desired amenities for modern day living. The extensively remodelled residence retains its original features and period detailing including lead lights and stained glass, mullioned windows, rich wood panelling and fireplaces. When built in 1927 by a German timber merchant, no expense was spared in the construction. Premium materials, including oak, cedar, oregon pine, and matai floors, have stood the test of time.
A major refurbishment several years ago involved the relocation and updating of the kitchen, modernisation of the bathrooms, and reconfiguration of the downstairs floor plan to provide an easy flow between the living areas.
The two-storey residence spans (approx.) 371sqm and offers, on the ground floor, several casual and formal dining and lounge areas one of which opens to the paved outdoor patio and in-ground salt water pool setting, spacious granite bench-top kitchen with gas cooking, bathroom, laundry and an office.
While upstairs features five large bedrooms and a tiled, well equipped bathroom. The master suite accesses two balconies, one of which looks out towards the Waikato River and invites you to sit and relax and watch the world go by. Garaging is double plus and good off-street parking is available also.
Rich in history, this eye-catching home captures the romance of yesteryear. It is also in close proximity to the CBD, cafes and scenic river walks. Arguably one of the city’s best locations, Kotahi Avenue is a private lane accessed off Victoria Street north near the Fairfield Bridge.
