Fam­ily size foothold into Pahure­hure

Southern Real Estate Guide - - PROFILE -

The peace­ful, leafy lanes of Pahure­hure give the area a unique charm, and at the end of one quiet cul de sac we find a solid five-bed­room fam­ily home that could well be your foothold into this de­sir­able neigh­bour­hood.

8 Joyce St is a 170 square me­tre, sin­gle-level home on a 739 square me­tre, level sec­tion with es­tab­lished trees and easy- care shrub gar­dens. The front lawn is open to the street, the quiet cul de sac en­vi­ron­ment mak­ing fenc­ing un­nec­es­sary. There is plenty of space for ve­hi­cles in the ex­tra wide drive, in ad­di­tion to the in­ter­nal ac­cess garage.

In con­trast, the rear of the prop­erty is to­tally private. Be­hind high, screen­ing trees and fences there are cov­ered and un­cov­ered court­yard ar­eas for re­lax­ing and en­ter­tain­ing, with space along­side for chil­dren to play.

A high­light of this out­door liv­ing area is the good-sized in­ground pool with ap­proved fenc­ing and a se­cure gate. Lazy sum­mer days are just around the cor­ner, and this is the place to spend them!

The home is con­structed of ver­ti­cal weath­er­board with a tiled roof. Inside, the sight of solid plas­ter cor­nices and gen­er­ously pro­por­tioned rooms and hall­ways sug­gest that this was ex­tremely well built back in the 1970s.

The lay­out splits the five bed­rooms into three bed­rooms and a bath­room on one side of the cen­tral liv­ing; two more bed­rooms, sec­ond bath­room, sep­a­rate laun­dry and garage ac­cess on the other.

The liv­ing area is an easy flow from lounge to din­ing room to cov­ered out­doors, with ranch­slid­ers both front and rear.

The kitchen is well de­signed and equipped with all mod cons – un­der-bench oven, ce­ramic hob with range­hood, dish­washer, waste dis­poser and good work and stor­age space.

There are two po­ten­tial mas­ter bed­rooms in this house – one with a large walk-in or­gan­ised wardrobe, and a bath­room di­rectly op­po­site the door – the other with twin wardrob­ing and a semi en suite with spa bath, shower and mod­ern til­ing and van­ity.

It all adds up to a sub­stan­tial fam­ily home, in easy walk­ing dis­tance to Rose­hill Col­lege, St Mary’s School and Pa­pakura Cen­tral Pri- mary; handy to trans­port, shops, the mo­tor­way and Tiffi n’s pop­u­lar restau­rant in the Pahure­hure shop­ping cen­tre.

8 Joyce St is newly listed, on the mar­ket for $ 495,000.

Real es­tate con­sul­tant Linda Breeze of Ray White Pa­pakura com­ments: “ It’s a plea­sure to mar­ket a prop­erty such as this, one with so much po­ten­tial in a very good street.”

Visit the open home on Satur­day Novem­ber 3 from 3.00- 3.30pm, or make a private ap­point­ment with Linda by phon­ing 295 2021 or 0275 606 831.

Liv­ing al fresco: There is plenty of space for re­lax­ing, en­ter­tain­ing or kids’ play.
