Best buy in Bun­crana?

Southern Real Estate Guide - - Profile -

Ex­ec­u­tive homes in Park Haven Es­tate have re­alised sales of over $900,000 in some cases, so find­ing an im­mac­u­late 174 square me­tre, three-bed­room home for just $545,000 would just about qual­ify as the dis­cov­ery of the sum­mer!

This is a qual­ity home that would ideally suit a busy work­ing cou­ple, as it’s the kind of place you can come home to and com­pletely re­lax – in lux­u­ri­ously un­wind­ing sur­round­ings with min­i­mal up­keep.

The decor is taste­ful, el­e­gant and con­tem­po­rary. The open plan de­sign com­bines econ­omy of flow with ex­cel­lent defi ni­tion of din­ing and liv­ing ar­eas, while bi­folds draw back fully in cafe style to cre­ate a gen­uine in­doorout­door liv­ing ex­ten­sion with a view of the Hunua ranges.

Be­ing brick (of the im­pres­sive, big square variety) and tile, lit­tle main­te­nance is re­quired.

At­trac­tive side fenc­ing pro­vides a com­pletely se­cure and private rear gar­den, planted in nu­mer­ous trees and shrubs which will come to ma­tu­rity in a cou­ple of years time (the home is only 12 months old). The prop­erty is 785 square me­tres in area.

Bun­crana Place has been de­signed in an Amer­i­can style lay­out, open to the street. Not box­ing off each sec­tion with front fences adds open­ness and el­e­gance to the quiet cul de sac.

It’s part of the Park Haven Es­tate, a se­lect de­vel­op­ment no more than two years old, sit­u­ated be­tween Pa­pakura and Drury in an un­hur­ried part of the world. Yet it’s very close to mo­tor­way and train con­nec­tions, with a walk­way that takes you close to the de­light­ful Drury Lane shop­ping cen­tre.

A broad, well-paved drive, ca­pa­ble of park­ing four vis­i­tors’ cars, takes you to the in­ter­nal ac­cess dou­ble garage – big enough for a laun­dry re­cess and pre-wired in case you’d like a work­shop.

The home’s cen­tral en­trance takes you into a tiled foyer, then di­rectly into in­ter­con­nected liv­ing ar­eas. The win­dows are all tinted to pre­vent glare and add pri­vacy; also taste­fully dec­o­rated with stylishly ef­fi­cient roller blinds and lovely drapes.

The kitchen and din­ing ar­eas are di­vided by a kitchen is­land which dou­bles as a food prep area and a cof­fee sta­tion. The kitchen it­self is very con­tem­po­rary in looks and lay­out, with tiled floor, good-sized pantry, plenty of smooth open­ing stor­age, and a full com­ple­ment of ap­pli­ances.

The three bed­rooms are sit­u­ated left of the en­trance­way, all with am­ple ward- rob­ing. They are served by a tiled fam­ily bath­room with sep­a­rate bath and shower, good van­ity, heat­lamps and heated towel rail.

The mas­ter has its own stylish en suite, and a ca­pa­cious walk-in wardrobe.

This home has been kept im­mac­u­lately, the liv­ing ar­eas hav­ing a showhome qual­ity. At $ 545,000 it is ex­tremely re­al­is­ti­cally priced.
