Totally transformed in peaceful Pahurehure
Two years ago the original 1970s home at No. 3 Ashdown Place in Pahurehure would hardly have attracted attention from passers by. Since then a total remodelling has transformed it into a stylish contemporary four-bedroom abode full of great design ideas, a fresh layout, acres of new carpets, tiles and fittings, and a potentially fabulous rear garden.
It sits in a quiet Pahurehure cul de sac, just a hop and skip from Papakura Central School and Ray Small Park with its lovely autumn walks. It’s in the perfect position, close to Papakura town and Pahurehure shops, and Rosehill College zoned.
The motorway is two minutes away, Strathallan just beyond.
The way it the house is presented today, with so much gone into the remodelling, it’s an excellent buy. Its pristine white plaster exterior is an excellent backdrop for the many native green plants which grace to easy- care peb- ble gardens. A covered path leads from the attractively presented double carport to a tiled entranceway.
New sisal carpet features in the spacious lounge, which leads in turn to nicely tiled dining room, kitchen and laundry areas.
Apart from the master bedroom, the rooms continue in a clockwise flow – family bathroom, separate toilet and three double bedrooms, before meeting up with the entrance again.
At the centre of this ‘circuit’ is a central atrium which, apart from creating the impression of extra space, is a great source of natural light – in the very centre of the home!
The exception to this circuit is the master bedroom, situated off the dining area. Formerly the garage, it is now a lovely room opening onto a paved patio and the rear garden. It also has a tiled walk-in wardrobe and stylish en suite.
The modernised kitch- en has very good work areas and storage capacity, with smooth-sliding drawers, neat corner cupboards, a good-sized pantry – along with gas hob, stainless steel oven and dishwasher, waste disposer and small breakfast bar.
A real feature of this 698 square metre property is the rear garden. Sunny, well planned and planted, it has the potential to be made into something even more special.
The paved central area could accommodate a spa and gazebo, or perhaps fi xed seating and built-in barbecue. Plenty of possibilities certainly, in a naturally beautiful space with a background of stately park trees. Within this fully fenced garden there is also a goodsized equipment shed.
