First home or investment haven
With a $309,000 price tag for three double bedrooms on 648 square metres, this Papakura home is certainly worth a look for first home buyers or property investors.
With its secluded courtyard full of native plants and spring flowers, it would make a fine artist’s retreat (there’s even a mezzanine studio/study nestling under its lofted ceiling). And with its secluded rear garden and sunny decks, it’s also ideal for the young children to play.
27 Chrisarda Place is an attractive hideaway built of cedar weatherboard with aluminium windows, situated in a quiet cul de sac.
The brick-paved front courtyard is hidden behind screening trees, and is accessed from the front living room, while a second living space or dining room leads out onto the rear decks – so it’s a home that has plenty of airflow in summer.
In the winter, a woodburn- er keeps things cosy, with the ambient heat from the fire and tall chimney carrying the warmth through both levels.
Currently vacant and available for immediate possession, the home would benefit from a tidy-up indoors and out, although it remains a pretty place and the potential is obvious.
For owner- occupiers, kitchen and bathroom renovations could be on the agenda – although, investors note, this is not essential.
The kitchen is built in a galley style, with direct access to a potential family dining alcove, and overlooking the lower level dining/ family area with its deck access.
The main living area has a high-sloping ceiling featuring exposed beams. There is one bedroom on this lower level, while the two garretstyle bedrooms and mezzanine studio, complete with desk and shelves, are located upstairs.
The rear garden is fully fenced, with a broad flat area of lawn and a vegetable patch to one side. There is also a single attached garage. Chattels include an alarm, electric range, woodburner and garden shed.
