5 Corry Avenue Bluff Hill, Napier, Hawkes Bay
Cape Views From Vintage Villa
Built in 1885 for his own family by craftsman carpenter John Corry (after whom the street was named), this landmark two-storey home still retains many of its archetypal character features, with subsequent renovations remaining sympathetic to the original build. Utilitarian improvements such as re-piling and insulating have been carried out, the bathroom facilities downstairs revamped and modifications made to the internal layout to improve flow.
Carefully-maintained polished timber floorboards, natural timber doors, window frames and trims add lustrous warm tones and imbue a colonial charm found only in homes of this vintage. Downstairs the sunny, light-filled home exudes a comfortable, cosy vibe through the separate living area, open-plan kitchen and dining room and bathroom facilities. A study / second living area or fourth bedroom downstairs allows flexible layout options to suit your family’s requirements, with another three generously-sized bedrooms and a second bathroom upstairs.
The large deck is the perfect vantage point for relaxing and enjoying exceptional views out to Cape Kidnappers – ideal for entertaining family and friends at a casual brunch during the day, or dinner and drinks by night with the city lights as a glittering backdrop. Steps and paths enhance the terraced garden, while a workshop provides secure storage for tools and garden implements. Off-street parking for up to three vehicles is easily accessible.
The central location right on the city’s doorstep means you can leave your car – and your parking woes – at home, as a brisk walk will have you downtown within minutes. It is also in zone for Central School, while Napier Girls’ High School is merely meters away.
