Who would like a new house with­out the has­sle of build­ing? Asks Bob­bie Nicholls.

Feilding-Rangitikei Herald - - What’s On -

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.

Con­tact Racheal Man­ning at Pro­fes­sion­als, Feild­ing on 06 323 1559 or 027 201 83 81 and this could be yours.
