All the very best things about Devonport come together at 6 Huia Street. A historic bungalow with period features and kauri floors, an easy, short, flat walk to the village and the ferry, and a rare level section within metres of the harbour. Add to that solid double brick walls, gas heating, cooking and hot water, a kitchen/conservatory that feels like a small cafe and you begin to see just how good life can be living here. Living here has been very good since 1921, in fact, when the house was built especially for the first Maori British soldier to fight in the second Boer War (1899-1902). The story goes that Walter Calloway served three tours of duty, was wounded and finally sent home. Before going off to fight Walter had married the daughter of a local Devonport businessman, and it was he who built the house for the couple on Walter's return. You'll find the original fireplaces are still in place and working order. One in the master bedroom, and one in the lounge, or should we say parlour. Not that you'll need to light a fire with gas central heating throughout. And with its east-west aspect you get sun on this house all day long. Catch dawn in the kitchen, sunset from the bedrooms. There's even the opportunity for you to work from home; the shed in the back garden has been converted with added windows and new doors to make what could equally be used as an office or an artist's studio. And if you want to feel part of the community, there's no better place. You'll be living on one of Devonport's iconic streets with a real neighbourhood feel. There's even plenty of space to extend into the back garden if you want. Whatever you do to make this house your own will only increase its charm, add to its value and continue its story.
