With Devonport's waterfront at one end of the street and Mt Victoria looming at the other, it is easy to see why this location was chosen by Arthur Mofflin to build his workers cottage.
Erected in 1875-8 as an artisans dwelling, Mofflin house is architecturally significant as an early remaining example of residential architecture in Devonport, and has been described by Heritage NZ as the suburbs best surviving example of this style of workers cottage.
Steeped in history, this home has enduring warmth and appeal. The current owner has lovingly maintained and cared for it during her time here including recently repainting the exterior and re-roofing.
Modifications to the original home in the 1980's reflect gentrification in Devonport in the late twentieth century and a rear extension along the south boundary and an attached garage were added sympathetically.
The home itself offers three bedrooms, main with ensuite, separate bathroom, library or study and two living spaces, one at the front in the original part of the house, and a larger room at the back of the house that opens out through pretty French doors to the garden. The kitchen which still has the original coal range, is in good condition but would benefit from an upgrade at some stage.
There is a very colourful back garden full of roses, hydrangeas and geraniums with a unique water feature making a stunning focal point. A large back lawn with established trees and a paved entertainment area provide a private peaceful spot to relax and enjoy the sun.
This home will suit those seeking a very tidy single level dwelling with a superbly central location. Walk to Devonport village, our award winning library, beautiful waterfront and the ferry to Auckland city. Leave the car at home living here and enjoy the very best of what Devonport has to offer. Please call me to arrange your private viewing.
