Home of the week – 24 Bates St, Riverton


YOU can never tire of a sea view.

Whether it be a sunny and hopeful day or a dark and moody one, the ocean offers up a stunning illustration regardless.

This home in Riverton offers front row seats to the ever-changing scenery.

Beautifully crafted and retaining many of its original features, this villa is a delight and will suit either a large family or those who love entertaining.

Entering through the back door, there is a room tucked away at the back of the house. This would be ideal as an office, craft room or could be the fifth bedroom.

As you walk through to the kitchen, you pass the laundry area which leads to a bathroom, which is also en suite to a generous double bedroom.

Walking through to the open-plan kitchen, dining and living area, you have to stop and savour the views of Riverton’s harbour which surround you.

The generous kitchen, which has had some recent modifications, comes with an over-generous island bar, ample storage and a walk-in pantry

Past the dining area is a small seating area, the perfect position to watch the boats come in and out, and a lounge which has a door out to a spacious porch.

This whole living area is heated with both a heat pump and a log-burner.

Through the doors into the hall you are hit with the character of yester-year.

The polished rimu floors, beautiful heritage leadlight windows surrounding the front door and craftsman detailing are exquisite.

Off the hallway are a further three generous double bedrooms, two with fitted wardrobes and two with access to the porch.

A separate toilet and beautiful fully-tiled bathroom, with a lavish walk-in shower, are also located off the hall.

Outside there is a massive two-car garage with extra space for a workshop, as well as a green house and even a space to park the boat.

If you are looking for a place where you can enjoy outstanding views every day, then this is the place for you.
