It isn’t completely original, but enough of the right features have been preserved for this 1930s art deco property in Hamilton, New Zealand to catch our eye.
Set in a sought after part of this particular city, the house dates back to 1939, with a number of features still surviving after almost 80 years.
The frontage and those circular windows are obviously the main attraction, but look more closely and you’ll find the art deco motifs on the front and once inside, the curved rooms, period doors and what looks like a period staircase.
But it is worth noting that this is far from a time capsule. The originality has been maintained, but the house has also kept pace with the modern era, not least when it comes to the kitchen and the bi-fold doors that open access to the outside space.
As for the space within, that covers around 332 sq. metres and includes three bedrooms, one with a private balcony, and two bathrooms. According to the agent, the living and dining areas can be ‘configured in a variety of ways’, with options for a formal dining room and two lounges, as well as an office or third living space. That modern kitchen is also on the ground floor, which also has a laundry and downstairs toilet.
There is access to both the attached double garage and workshop from here too.
The outdoor area is apparently split into ‘three distinct areas’, with a lawn to the front of the house behind the electric gates, an outdoor dining area to the side, which is access by the bi-folding doors and what is described as a ‘paved, private oasis’ at the rear of the property with a built-in spa.
