Welcome to Selig Real Estate

Home of the Week


Who would have thought that in the center of busy Lower Hutt in prestigious Penrose Street you would find this little oasis of  botanic tranquillity and this stunning contemporary masterpiece designed by Auckland & Internationally acclaimed, architect Ron Sang,  encompassing  many aspects of Feng Shui to create  “ a better place to be in” Ron’s signature “over-sized  front door” greets you, and from there you enter the stunning light filled environment.

Off white walled gallery like spaces, the perfect backdrop for or furniture, create a sleek stylish interior and the extensive floor to ceiling double glazing along the extended north aspect of the  ground floor, not only provides beautiful light but creates the feeling that the garden is an integral part of the construction of this unique home which of course was intended..

Formal living and dining areas are semi-separate from the casual living area but can be easily extended  for larger gatherings and flow out to again a unique outdoor living space set amongst the botanics designed by Rebecca Wilson in conjunction with Ron Sang..

A wonderful feature of the open plan kitchen/casual dining/family room area, not often found in modern homes, are wonderful hideaway storage cupboards to deal with the day to day clutter we accumulate. This adds to the sleekness of this home.

Also on the ground floor is the lovely master-suite which also benefits from the extensive glazing. The walk- in wardrobe would satisfy the most discerning woman’s necessities and again has built in storage to enable the bedroom itself to feel uncluttered. The en-suite as well of  the additional one and a half bathrooms (the ½ bathroom being  a most glamorous powder room with a semi separate 3rd toilet) are all of a standard expected in a home of this caliber.

Upstairs there are 2 additional large bedrooms with a living room/playroom/study,  plus bathroom separating them,  an ideal layout to give privacy to family members or guests.  There is also a large walk in storage/dark room on this level.

The large double garaging with internal access, a great heating/cooling system  and internal vac. add to the convenience and enjoyment of this home as does its wonderfully central location with walking distance to all Hutt City’s amenities, the train and all the most popular public and private schools.

The original owner put her heart and soul into achieving this wonderful home but sadly now she has passed and the family have spread far and wide, some other lucky family can inherit enjoying the wonderful lifestyle to be had here.
