Luxurious apartment in boutique complex
Offers above $799,00 are invited for a Shelly Bay Terrace apartment, with sensational sun and views, that is for sale for the first time since it was built 10 years ago.
The two-bedroom residence, at 17/61 Maupuia Rd, Maupuia, is in the boutique complex that bears the prestigious signature of renowned Oriental Bay apartment designer Dr Robert Donald.
Measuring 120 square metres, it comes with two covered car parks and has a wide, west-facing deck overlooking Evans Bay, with views of the harbour to the north and over Wellington Airport to Lyall Bay and Cook Strait to the south.
The first-level apartment has only two neighbours and enjoys all-day sun, Charlotte Campbell-Lamerton, of RE/MAX Leaders, says.
The spaciousness of the apartment is enhanced by its abundant natural light, high stud, floor-to-ceiling doors, curved corners and sliding doors that open from the living/dining room to the tiled deck.
The living/dining room is open-plan with the kitchen, which has granite benchtops, a double oven, a ceramic cooktop, a rangehood, a dishwasher, an integrated refrigerator/freezer and a waste disposal unit.
Miss Campbell-Lamerton says a special feature of the kitchen is its module bespoke Italian joinery which can be reconfigured to suit a new owner's needs.
There are two bathrooms, each with external windows. One has a shower over bath, handbasin, toilet, and hideaway laundry facilities while the other is the ensuite for the spacious main bedroom that has exceptional storage and opens to the deck.
In addition to a second double- bedroom, there is a media room or study.
"This is a luxurious, executive apartment that offers incredible value for money," Miss Campbell-Lamerton says.
"In terms of sun, space, views and value per square metre, nothing else comes close.
"It's only 10 minutes' drive from the city, is extremely easy to lock up and leave if you go away, and if you do travel a lot, you're only a few minutes from the airport. It has visitor parking, the excellent body corporate is run by Oxygen Strata, and because it's a low rise development, you don't have to worry about lift maintenance.
"There have never been any leaky building issues and the appeal of this no- expense-spared apartment speaks for itself, given the developer's lived in it since it was new."
The property has a rateable value of $810,000.
