A real honey for your money

Southern Real Estate Guide - - Profile -

This pretty brick unit at 1/13 Brouder Place con­jures up all kinds of sweet images.

A ‘peach’ of a prop­erty comes to mind, as it’s tucked away in a sunny, se­cluded spot at the end of a quiet Hill­park cul de sac. A real honey for your money cer­tainly, as this im­mac­u­late and mod­ernised two-bed­room unit is a rare fi nd in a sought-af­ter area.

It’s the fi rst of two units off a leafy right- of-way drive. Con­structed of solid brick and tile with a lit­tle con­trast­ing ver­ti­cal weath­er­board, the unit has both an at­tached garage and a sec­ond park­ing bay, with an en­trance wide enough to ac­com­mo­date a camper van or boat trailer.

The gar­den is a de­light­ful sun­trap, well-fenced and private with lots of lovely shrubs, trees and flow­ers. The path leads around to a dis­creet laun­dry line and a neat gar­den shed.

Inside the tiled en­trance we en­ter a good-sized lounge blessed with plenty of nat­u­ral light and warmth. The liv­ing is open plan, with a din­ing area and a mod­ernised kitchen which must be very pleas­ant to work in.

It has a new ce­ramic hob and un­der-bench oven, new bench­tops, ex­cel­lent stor­age in­clud­ing a pantry and a glass-fronted crock­ery cup­board; also a waste dis­poser, wa­ter fil­ter and tiled splash­guards.

The gar­den makes a pretty scene from the win­dow, and as it’s quite el­e­vated here, there are wide-rang­ing views to the trees and re­serves that give Hill­park its name.

Bath­room, toi­let and laun­dry are all sep­a­rate rooms, the bath­room hav­ing had a makeover which in­cluded tiled walls, sep­a­rate bath and shower, a very nice van­ity, heated towel rail and heat­lamps.

The two bed­rooms are both a good size, with dou­ble wardrobes.

This home would make an ideal starter or a nest to down­size to. It’s close to Manukau City and the mo­tor­way, and within walk­ing dis­tance of Hill­park School and Hill­park shop­ping cen­tre. A nearby walk­way pro­vides a route through to Great South Rd for buses.

It is rare to fi nd a unit like this in Hill­park, and a plea­sure to fi nd one so well looked af­ter. On the mar­ket for $ 337,000 it can be viewed by ap­point­ment with Robert Water­son of Har­veys Ma­nurewa, ph 266 6400, mob 0274 736 742, a/ h 268 7560.

Private and peace­ful: A pretty cor­ner of the gar­den.

Brick-and-tile: There’s peace of mind and min­i­mal main­te­nance in a place like this.

Kitchen con­tent­ment: with a lovely out­look.

Re­cently up­graded and blessed
