Home is where the heart is
In the heart of the elite Gardens area is a home that has all your family’s entertaining needs covered. Not only does it have flowing living areas, harbour views and sunny decks, it also has its own air-conditioned cinema room complete with projector, electric drop-down screen and blackout curtains. Roll picture, action... you’ll be the height of popularity!
But there’s more to this grand family home that the pleasures of the ‘silverscreen’. With 310 square metres of floor space on a 750 square metre section – plus four large double bedrooms, a study, two living and two dining areas, two bathrooms and massive triple car internal garaging – it provides space and versatility for a growing family.
There’s no denying first impressions count, and 32 Kuripaka Crescent looks fantastic from the street, with its beautifully landscaped gardens, fascinating rooflines and windows.
The tree-lined drive provides plenty of off-street parking in addition to the whopping three- car garage – a car enthusiast’s dream.
The interior is full of delightful rimu trim, and further on down the hall we discover some impressive sarked ceilings in the formal dining and living areas. These are split level, the lower dining room being rather more intimate and the lounge full of light with views to the Manukau Heads.
The bedrooms are all very large with excellent wardrobing, so family members can create their own personal space.
Kitchen and family room are two more large, connected spaces, extended further by kitchen window sliders and French doors to a pretty deck ideal for summer entertaining. Beyond here is a private, easily-maintained rear garden.
The tiled kitchen is blessed with plenty of natural light, and well- equipped with ceramic hob, under-bench oven, microwave, water filter, dish drawers, waste disposer and a very practical breakfast bar. A Masport woodburner warms the family area in winter.
Top and bottom of the house both have their own surprises. Upstairs is a separate master suite, complete with private balcony, large walk-in wardrobe, en suite with additional attic storage, and the best view of all – over the local stands of native bush and on out to the Manukau.
Downstairs, of course, is the home theatre – not just the room but all the equipment as well!
In fact there are too many chattels in this home to Street smart: Looking distinctly ‘at home’ in its surroundings. list here – you can see for yourself at one of the open homes: Wednesday evenings 5.30- 6.30pm, or Saturday/ Sunday 2- 3pm.
Living here, you’d be close to plenty of good shopping options, new schools including decile 10 The Gardens Primary, the Botanical Gardens, Totara Park and the motorway. It’s a great neighbourhood.
