Home is where the heart is

Southern Real Estate Guide - - PROFILE -

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.
