You can *feel* the substance of a beloved family home: it's warmth, protection, memories. You appreciate its space, comforts; its ability to cater for a family's varying needs. When coupled with elegance and contemporary innovations, on over a quarter acre of private established grounds, you too will want to stay here for 32 years or more.
Situated in well-appreciated Albert Street - where a stroll to town for coffee, brunch, or an evening meal is simply so easy and college is but a bike ride away - this substantial Bungalow is a prize your family will desire.
It offers two separate lounges presenting alternatives for entertaining or different age-group activities. One has wide double doors opening out to an expansive back decked-porch, totally covered and with 'window' benches providing relaxed seating for your family and guests, whilst the formal lounge is spacious, gracious, and warmed by a delightfully recessed woodburner.
A country-style kitchen boasts quality chattels and plenty of benchspace, with the family bathroom featuring a magnificent clawfoot bath, separate shower, with the bonus of a second toilet bringing further convenience for the family. Three double bedrooms provide welcoming havens - the master with a much-loved dressing room - and the decor throughout the whole home being utterly restful, tasteful and complemented by modern amenities.
Traditional garaging includes good workshop space for tinkering within and there's a large adjoining office set up well for modern techno demands. This is a great work-from-home prospect.
Surrounding grounds also offer choices for family members. Whether it's growing vegies in the raised beds, playing in the back lawn, restoring the classic "Wendy House", developing the formal gardens, skating down the driveway, or sipping wine in the front porch on a summer's evening, there's room here for everyone to enjoy.
Discover many additional features when you book your private appointment to view. It is recommended that you call Mike King today.

Location Description

Masterton – “Whakaoriori” – is the Wairarapa’s largest town; a vibrant, eclectic home to over 25,000 residents. Founded in 1854, the beloved township boasts a rich heritage and robust economy, with a vast number of industries and businesses making the most of its proximity to Wellington and laidback, picturesque lifestyle. 

Set within the Wairarapa Valley, the Tararua Ranges offer a mighty backdrop to Masterton’s day-to-day living, either mantled in glistening snow or shimmering in a summery haze. Popular coastal villages are also in good distance and provide a variety of swimming beaches, holiday baches, fishing, snorkling, and surfing options, all within friendly local communities.

Nature lovers? Golfers? Wine lovers? Off-the-gridders? Artistes? Farmers or hobby lifestylers?  Families seeking excellent schooling? Retirees desiring an idyllic, relaxed retirement? Or those business-focussed individuals looking for the best of all worlds? Opportunities simply abound in this beautiful place we call home.

Approximately 90 minutes away, reaching Wellington is an enjoyable train ride, or a spectacular drive over the Remutaka Hill Road. Martinborough, Greytown, Carterton and Featherston are all additional Wairarapa townships boasting many attractions, experiences, and beauties of their own.

Don’t take our word for it: come and explore all that Masterton has to offer. 

We, here at LJ Hooker Masterton, are Locals looking after Locals, and we want to welcome you in, to share our treasures.
