Spanish lady on Grey
This central home lends itself perfectly to the popular trend of retaining the street appearance of a character home while redesigning, extending, and contemporising the rear. Epitomising old-world charm and possessing potential for modern-day panache, its nostalgic past can be treasured while its new life is celebrated. Designed by renowned Hamilton architect Terrance Philip Vautier and built circa 1932 as his own home, the clearly identifiable building draws its inspiration from Spanish Mission architecture. It is dripping with vintage detailing and Art Deco aesthetics yet conjures up images of having a new kitchen/living pod married to the rear garden, a swimming pool enhancement, or even an ancillary dwelling added. The backyard is certainly big enough. The property is currently leased as a commercial premises and is suited to any number of boutique businesses or professional services. It occupies a large 1,011sqm (more or less) section smack in the heart of vibrant Hamilton East, moments from State Highway 1, local amenities, and Hamilton Gardens. There is plenty of on-site parking and electronic gate security. Avant-garde in its early days, the property is ready to morph into something truly special that will carry it forward for future generations.
