SumBodi:

Just wondering from those with experience - what do you think the best solution is as the problem appears isolated to just this one room.

 

 

Add orchids, bromeliads, tropical vines, some pitcher plants,philodendrons, and bougainvilleas, and charge people to visit your tropical hothouse?

If it's damp, it's not just from being cold. The cold simply causes condensation from water vapour saturated air and that water vapour is coming from somewhere. It may be from warm moist air from the adjacent damp ground entering through the open windows especially if they're low to the ground.

Laingholm - some fact that the realestate agent most likely did not tell you. You are living in a subtropical rain forest that get over 2m of rain a year, over double Auckland. Even when it not raining you get very damp air coming in over the Tasman. When I live in the ranger, the relative humidity was 80 - 100% most of the time, anything below 80 was rare. So you got a lot of damp air to start with, which will make it hard to keep room dry

What about a simple ducted transfer ventilation kit? Getting some air moving through should solve it, and if the air comes from upstairs/sunny side of the house it will keep it warm as well.

It's probably south facing with land rising to the north too.
