|About the Property
308 Grafton Road, Thames
308 Grafton is an attractive, sunny, extensive and versatile home overlooking Firth and Plains, with some of the most stunning views in the area, just 5 minutes to town and schools.
With its warm, west facing welcome the house offers flexible living for family life, or as a home with income.
The timber weatherboards, two storeys, Colonial and cathedral ceilings, macrocarpa sarking, Inglenook fireplace with woodburner, and rimu kitchen hint at another time, yet clean lines, extensive decks, easy flow, and thoughtful design give 308 Grafton a contemporary feel as a haven for a busy family, or to provide space and privacy to run business from home.
A flexible “under one roof” layout offers up to 6 bedrooms, 4 bathrooms and 2 living areas, complete with study space. Or, the house can be configured to have a “private wing” (great for grandparents, office-space or Air B'n'B) complete with its own front door, living room, kitchenette and bathroom.
Separate to the house, above the two-car garage, there is a studio with deck and bathroom. The current owners were able to live here for the last year during an extensive renovation that has brought out the best of this easy-going home.
The windows, gardens, decks and gazebo offer you all thats great about Coromandel living – swimming holes, beaches and unforgettable sunsets across the Firth, an ever-changing view from the mouth of the Kauaeranga Valley, the Hauraki Plains and Ranges, and up the Gulf towards the north – in the well-appointed and deliciously funky Thames township, 90 non-peak minutes from Auckland.
The land is fenced, and set to provide several paddocks if grazing is required. Through a rental agreement a further paddock may continue to be available. Around the home, raised beds and a small greenhouse offer well-drained and easily worked gardens that have provided us with an abundance of organic vegetables.
Neighbouring properties have rights of access from Grafton Road along a driveway that is managed co-operatively. 308 Grafton is on town water supply, and fibre internet is recently available.
