14 Ruskin Road, Newlands, Wellington

Needing that special home that ticks all the boxes? Keep reading. Solid, sunny and immaculately presented with mesmerising harbour views. If you were asked to compose a list of what an ideal home should offer, you could almost present this mid-20th-century wooden weatherboard gem as a foolproof template. Solidly seated with elevation and both an east and westerly aspect for all day sun. Insulation in the ceiling, under the floor and in some of the walls along with a decent quantity of double glazing allow for good retainment of the heat produced by the gas fire and heatpump.

A generous three-bedroom property. The bedrooms are all accessed off the central hallway and all are of a good size. A bonus is the office/work from home area the garage has currently been turned into. Spacious kitchen with ample storage, open plan with both the dining and living areas. French doors lead from the dining to decking. It also has a separate laundry area neighbouring it. The spotless bathroom is centrally located. Both a bath and a shower over to cater for all.

With 733m2 of land, you really are buying a substantial slice of the Wellington property market.  They aren’t making any more! The cherry on top at 14 Ruskin Road is the excellent usability of the land. At the front of your potential new home is a large flat lawn that just soaks up the afternoon sun.  At the rear is a second lawn along with a courtyard area complete with vegetable boxes, plus a gated off area where chickens have been kept in the past. Potential landscape development here if desired.

Access to the property is drive-on with a single garage (currently used as a home office) plus extra off-street parking. A short drive to town with easy access to Johnsonville or Newlands supermarkets and transport. The location is A+.
