It features Walker’s signature timber glazing division panel in the lounge, ceiling scotia detailing, mahogany and rimu doors.

Incredibly comfortable and superbly presented, you can quite simply move in and enjoy, however, those with an eye for design will recognize the opportunity to add value to the property according to their own personal taste.

The layout is spacious, sunny and warm, with the lounge enjoying a favoured northerly aspect and an expansive window that not only bathes the space in natural light, but also offers a delightful view outdoors which enhances the feeling of spaciousness.
