Historic Paekakariki Home with Views

100 years old and still going strong. This iconic Paekakariki homestead was built in 1921 of heart rimu and matai for one of Paekakariki's original families.
The house oozes character and you will appreciate the old world craftmanship that went into building this masterpiece with the high ceilings, native timber lined formal lounge, dining room, ornate carraras etc. The fully fenced property is in a quiet cul-de-sac has double-garaging and heaps of off-street parking for boat or motorhome and is elevated for sun with views of the eastern hills, Tasman Sea, South and Kapiti Islands.

Paekakariki has all its own charm. Purchase this dear old lady and be part of a friendly community and enjoy a laid-back coastal lifestyle, with long walks on the beach, take a swim or surf, brunch, shopping in the village, or dinner at one of the restaurants, followed by a live gig at St Peter's Hall.

With Transmission Gully now open, you can enjoy an easy relaxed commute to Wellington by road or train. Just five minutes walk to Paekakariki School or rail and your teenager could cycle along the cycle track to Kapiti College. Queen Elizabeth Park is a 15 minute walk away.

Large flat sections with drive on access and 3600 views are an absolute rarity in Paekakariki. The mix of lifestyle, history, character, views, privacy and proximity to everything makes it a grand old homestead to treasure making it the perfect package.

You may need to wait another 20 years to get such an opportunity again so act now. Owner reserves the right to sell prior to auction day so avoid immense disappointment and call now to view or be the first to attend Sunday's open home.
