This five family bedroom home has star quality, says Bobbie Nicholls
Sited at a desirable address, close to schools at all levels of education, this house has been updated to suit a modern family lifestyle.
The kitchen is very smart. A wide servery for casual eating, space for a side-by-side fridgefreezer and a double oven, this would suit a cook who likes to entertain or a family who enjoy preparing meals together. This is the heart of the home and as well as the large dining area and open-plan lounge, there is ample space adjoining the kitchen for a desk for children to do homework or for toddlers to play close to adult supervision.
Both the lounge and the dining area open to terraces, front and back respectively, for al fresco dining and face north and west so receive all day sun into the late evening. With no large trees to shade the house, the living area utilises all the available sunshine, even in recent cool weather. New carpet throughout adds to the warmth of the house, which has a wood-fire for heating.
Three double bedrooms on this level are all a good size with wardrobes. The family bathroom has been modernised with a new bath, shower and vanity, and neutral tiles for a sleek modern décor and easy cleaning. A separate toilet is easily accessible from the living areas or from the garage-workshop.
Upstairs is the parents’ private suite. A huge master bedroom has a good sized ensuite bathroom with a shower and also a walk-in wardrobe to please anyone who loves clothes. This is the retreat space where mum and dad can talk in peace on comfortable chairs, read a book or watch television away from the noise of a busy family. The double-glazed picture window gives a lofty evening view of the sun setting behind the western hills of Feilding.
A fifth bedroom on this floor would make either a warm nursery so the littlest member of the family is close to parents, or a large office from which to run a business or study in private.
But wait - there’s more!
This second storey has been recently constructed above a new double garage/ workshop and laundry plus a third garage which is currently set up as a man-cave, complete with bar. The whole area is carpeted, so, whether working on a mechanical project, getting involved in a space-taking hobby or watching rugby in the bar-room with friends, this is a cosy space. Separate roller doors on the double and single garage mean they can be used as individual spaces which could be very useful for a family with gregarious teens or different interests.
The grounds are easy care with room for a trampoline and vegetable garden and hidden garden sheds. Before sale, the concrete drive will be upgraded for easy access and parking.
