Ac­cent on en­ter­tain­ment in The Gar­dens

Southern Real Estate Guide - - Front Page -

It’s a great life in The Gar­dens, and here we have the per­fect home for the fam­ily who likes to share the good times.

10 Ku­mar Place is a de­cep­tively large and ex­tremely so­cia­ble home, de­signed for grow­ing fam­i­lies and ideal for en­ter­tain­ing.

The rear gar­den is ex­tremely well land­scaped and planted, and fea­tures split-level deck­ing with room for large gath­er­ings and kids to play.

The home it­self, ap­prox­i­mately four years old, is in ex­cel­lent con­di­tion. Its brick and tile ex­te­rior is a pleas­ant combo of sand­stone coloured brick and soft-green roof and fac­ings. Cor­ner­stone walls, white chip gravel paths and gar­dens and chunky paving stones all add up to an at­trac­tive, low-main­te­nance ex­te­rior.

In ad­di­tion to the in­ter­nal ac­cess dou­ble garage, there’s a park­ing pad for an­other ve­hi­cle, trailer or boat, while the rear gar­den is fully fenced and gated.

Only when you en­ter the house do you ap­pre­ci­ate how spa­cious and well- de­signed it is. A very large lounge and din­ing area flows onto the rear decks, while the spa­cious kitchen has all the mod­ern ap­pli­ances, stor­age and food prep ar­eas you need. It also over­looks the deck and gar­dens.

There is no need for open fire or gas heat­ing, as there is un­der-floor heat­ing in key ar­eas of the house such as kitchen, lounge/din­ing, fam­ily room, main bath­room and en suite.

With four good-sized bed­rooms and a fam­ily room, the home is de­signed for fam­i­lies who value their own space.

The mas­ter bed­room has the lux­ury of a tiled and heated en suite, spa­cious walk-in wardrobe, and ac­cess to the deck and gar­den.

The other rooms are served by a fam­ily bath­room with spa bath and sep­a­rate shower, van­ity, heated towel rail and heat­lamps – as well as the un­der-tile heat­ing. Next to it is a sep­a­rate toi­let with wash­stand.

The sep­a­rate fam­ily room of­fers the op­tion of a fifth bed­room, as it has a wardrobe built in – it also ac­cesses the deck and is a lovely room in any ca­pac­ity. Out­side it the hall­way ex­tends into a handy study al­cove, while a nearby trap­door pro­vides added ceil­ing stor­age.

The home is very well ap­pointed, and listed among the chat­tels are cen­tral vac and home se­cu­rity sys­tems. It has a floor area of 211 square me­tres, on a sec­tion of 602 square me­tres.

Ku­mar Place is a quiet cul de sac off Wairere Rd, close to To­tara Park in The Gar­dens School and Al­fris­ton Col­lege zone.

On the mar­ket for $ 549,000, the home can be viewed on Sun­day from 2.00-2.45pm. For more in­for­ma­tion con­tact Robert Water­son of Har­veys Ma­nurewa of­fice, ph 2666 400, mob 0274 736 742, a/ h 268 7560.

What’s cook­ing: Per­fectly de­signed and ap­pointed.

Private oa­sis: Tucked away in a sunny land­scaped cor­ner of the world, this deck and gar­den is great for sit­ting, play­ing or par­ty­ing.
