Mairangi Bay retreat with self-contained, two-bedroom accommodation

Set away from the road down a private driveway in Galaxy Drive’s northern slopes, this sun-filled property is just a one-minute walk, on the same side of the street, from Mairangi Bay School.  The neighbourhood is also in zone for renowned Murrays Bay Intermediate and Rangitoto College, so education is well-catered for.  The Mairangi Bay village is within walking distance, with its selection of cafes, bars, restaurants, shops and supermarket, along with the golden swimming bay and popular playground at the beach.

Crafted from solid brick and vertical cedar, main home’s original design has stood the test of time. Soaring roof angles thoughtfully placed windows and an open-plan design means interiors are flooded with light and sun and an excellent sense of connection is achieved between living zones.

The entry foyer flows into the ground floor living, where the central dining space is at the heart of the room and opens out on either side to alfresco living areas. One is an enclosed private deck, framed with tropical green plantings. The other is a sunny, north-facing deck and patio that step onto the rear lawn and well-established gardens.

The big, open kitchen has been modernised and has a breakfast bar, while the carpeted, sunken lounge has a wood-burning fireplace for cosy winter evenings. There’s another generous lounge located on the top floor, which has an internal window overlooking the living below.

There are three bedrooms located along the ground floor hallway, all with their own outdoor access. The master has an ensuite while the other two are serviced by the main bathroom.

The completely self-contained dwelling next door has its own parking area and outdoor living. Fresh, contemporary interiors are finished to an excellent standard, with an open-plan lounge, dining and modern designer kitchen on the ground floor. Sliding doors open out on either side of the room to intimate decks. Upstairs, two generous, light-filled bedrooms enjoy a peek of the sea and are serviced by the tiled main bathroom.

Although it’s reaped the benefits of new carpet and paint, which have significantly freshened the spaces, the main house is presented in largely original condition. It is comfortable to move into and enjoy, or could be further modernised to enhance its great proportions and striking design.
