Who would like a new house without the hassle of building? Asks Bobbie Nicholls.
Pharazyn Street’s population is growing exponentially!
With new roading and all the services now in place, new subdivisions are being laid out and the number of houses seems to increase every time I drive down there. Northern Feilding must be an exciting area to live.
But building a new house, with all the hassles of waiting for consents, finding an available and reliable builder, making detailed decisions and then having to lay out drives and so on, is not for the faint of heart or those who need a new house NOW!
Here is your answer.
Number 147 is newly finished and ready to be occupied. It has a neutral décor, charcoal carpets, concrete drive and terraces and even has a letter box.
About 30 minutes’ walk from Primary, Intermediate and Secondary Schools, it would also suit an older or professional couple who like a garden and entertaining.
The 265m² house on a 979m² section is certainly large enough for a family to enjoy an indoor-outdoor lifestyle, grow vegetables, erect a trampoline and kick a ball around. The concrete driveway has space for parking three cars and continues around the side of the house to the back door.
I like the way the living areas and terrace face north and are shielded from the road by the second living area and study. Cedar boards in the front gables and around the terrace make a pleasing feature against the white brick cladding and give the house its own stand-out style.
Enter the front door and one of two interior doors to the carpeted double garage is on your left. Touches such as the two doors from the garage into the house show the thought which has gone into the design. You can unload your groceries from the car into the kitchen, but the dirty washing from the bedrooms can also go straight into the laundry in the spacious garage. Having carpet on the floor makes this a useful space for hobbies or an indoor gym.
The living areas are divided by the kitchen and dining space. At the front is a media room, formal dining room or lounge separated from a large study by cavity sliders. All the windows are double glazed an electric heat pump ensures an ambient temperature. Glass sliding doors open from the optional dining area and the family room onto the sunny terrace.
My favourite feature of the all-electric kitchen is the plentiful cupboards and drawers plus shelves in the spacious walk-in pantry with electric points for appliances, to keep the stone bench tops clear.
The four double bedrooms are also well supplied with storage and face away from the road for privacy. The master suite has its own terrace plus a huge walk in wardrobe and an ensuite with more than enough room for two people.
