This is a very rare opportunity to acquire a home on a quarter acre of land within just a few minutes' walk of Howick Village. Not only is there 1014sqm of freehold land up for grabs, the home also offers plenty of space with 4 or 5 bedrooms, 2 bathrooms and lovely open plan living that flows out to a private, landscaped entertaining area.
The property is positioned away from the road so it's a safe haven for kids and pets. The driveway offers plenty of offstreet parking plus the home has a separate lockable garage, perfect for summer holidays when you want things nice and secure.
To the front, a picturesque BBQ area offers a lovely space to relax with friends and family. There's a childrens playhouse with slide here too and down the back is a massive piece of lawn - ideal for a trampoline or swing set.
During the 9 years the owners have lived here, the home has been tastefully updated including installing low maintenance laminate flooring in the living areas, modernising the main bathroom, replacing the staircase which features beautiful ash hardwood treads and a new roof which still has the balance of the 30 year warranty. The home feels welcoming, comfortable and very, very spacious.
The three bedrooms upstairs are serviced by a family bathroom with bath and shower. Downstairs, there is a massive master bedroom and another big room that you could either use as a bedroom or rumpus. It has its own separate entrance so it could even be a work from home office, homestay student etc... There is also a study nook, a second bathroom and separate toilet plus a nicely presented laundry with integrated storage. Wow!
The home is situated a short stroll to Howick Village where you will find a wide range of boutique shops, restaurants and cafes to enjoy. The lively buzz of the village is a fabulous treat on weekends when the village market is in full swing. Cinemas, Sports clubs, Beauty Therapy, Shopping and more is right at your doorstep.
For families with children, the home is zoned for Howick College, Howick Intermediate and Owairoa Primary is a short walk away.
Don't think twice. Call me today and enquire about this extremely rare opportunity!
