The perfect New Year resolution!
Ingram Street is one of those wellestablished Papakura addresses, a quiet neighbourhood of solid 60s homes on full sites, situated close to town. If all homes were built to these standards, we wouldn’t have half the problems faced today.
Constructed of solid concrete brick, the three-bedroom residence at 27 Ingram St has been kept in immaculate condition all its life, and only ever had two owners. Once inside there’s a quiet atmosphere, in a home full of natural light and well disposed to the sun.
Being a full 708 square metre section, it naturally has plenty of outdoor living space, and this back garden looks just perfect for good family times.
There are areas of flat lawn, a paved corner that could be developed as a BBQ spot or create additional parking. There are also fruit trees, a thriving vegetable garden, and wood storage behind the double garage.
The front of the property is a blaze of rose blossom right now, while the border trees on the street front provide just enough screen for the north-facing terrace.
Inside the home exhibits reassuring signs of quality, with plaster ceilings and moulded cornices, attractive timber door frames, and a solid fireplace containing a modern woodburner. It’s the kind of house that you could comfortably move into without changing anything – or alter to suit your family needs.
For example, the sliding door and glass panels between lounge and dining room could be made more open plan – creating a natural flow from kitchen and breakfast bar to a family area, dining then formal living. Ranchsliders open from the lounge to the north-facing terrace.
The kitchen is newer than the rest of the house, a room with very good food preparation areas and storage, good-sized breakfast bar and pantry, and a window on what’s happening in the rear garden. There is space and plumbing for a dishwasher, while the electric range is in excellent condition. Near the rear door is a separate laundry.
Down the hallway we discover three double bedrooms, all naturally lit and with built-in wardrobes; a family bathroom with bath, vanity and shower; separate toilet alongside; and plenty of hall storage.
Being in such a central location – you can walk to shops, school and train station – you couldn’t be better placed. And with such a solid home rich with possibilities, the asking price of $ 389,000 negoti- able seems like a fantastic investment for a family. What a great start to a new year!
