Potters' Gold – On The Point
Calling all creatives - here's a rare opportunity to own a distinctive property right on the Point village doorstep, one that has been an inspiring and peaceful home to two high-profile potters and their family for the last 40 years. From its elevated position at the sheltered end of one of Birkenhead Point's streets, you'll enjoy wonderful harbour views, all-day sun and plenty of space for the whole family to spread out. Even better, the fabulously light-filled studio space - complete with kitchenette, man-cave/cellar and three-phase power ready - makes this a work-from-home dream or possibly a fabulous teenage retreat or granny. Plus, a large bedroom with ensuite behind the gallery foyer.
The 1958 cottage was architecturally reconfigured into a dynamic 3-4 bedroom family home that exploits the light at every opportunity. The warm and inviting open-plan living and kitchen flows to both the pool area to the east, and a sheltered deck to the west, where you'll adore sitting with a glass of wine and watching the sun set over the Chelsea Sugar Works.
Artistic details feature throughout, from the angular Zincalume steel to the bespoke concrete flooring, stone-flecked benchtops in the kitchen, and beautiful bathrooms inspired by Japan and the Pacific Islands. A magnificent Fijian bure-style main bedroom suite and generous office/family space with large windows has been designed to wrap around the deck, solar-heated pool and tropical garden. Kids will love their large bedroom/playroom and the hydroslide into the pool!
With the city ferry a 10-minute stroll through the bushwalk at the end of your street, and a driveway that can accommodate several cars, this nature-lovers' hideaway is the ultimate city escape. Don't miss out!
