A real honey for your money
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.
