Ac­quire an en­vi­able life­style

Southern Real Estate Guide - - Southern Homes -

Sur­rounded by mead­ows and pris­tine bush all around, 188 Set­tle­ment Road is the kind of prop­erty you will love coming home to.

Imag­ine, af­ter a scenic drive past lush pad­docks and life­style blocks, you ar­rive at this ex­clu­sive en­clave of just eight lux­u­ri­ous homes. And as you head up the drive­way and park your­self at the top, you’ll re­alise there’s no other place you’d rather be.

From ev­ery side of this sub- stan­tial prop­erty the views are mag­nif­i­cent and sweep­ing – from Pukekohe and the ever-chang­ing Manukau Har­bour to the misty Waitakere Ranges in the dis­tance and the Ard­more Hills.

By night the scene trans­forms into a mag­i­cal dis­play of shim­mer­ing city lights.

The cur­rent own­ers Pat and Ken, who have lived here for 13 years, say you also get un­ob­structed views of ev­ery fire­works dis­play in Auck- land.

With four bed­rooms plus of­fice and two liv­ing ar­eas set on a beau­ti­fully land­scaped 7493 square me­tre site, com­plete with abun­dant birdlife and na­tive bush, this is your ticket to the good life.

De­spite of­fer­ing the tran­quil­ity of a coun­try es­tate, you are just eight min­utes from the mo­tor­way and ur­ban ameni­ties.

The in­te­ri­ors are just as im­pres­sive, with well- lit in­te­ri­ors open­ing out via ranchsliders to the court­yard.

First up, a grand foyer in­vites you into a wellap­pointed for­mal lounge, which comes with a wood burner and win­dow seats where you can snug­gle up with a book or just soak up the views. The kitchen/din­ing area and one large bed­room open out to the front as well.

The master bed­room comes with walk-in wardrobe and en­suite with sky­light, while the other bed­rooms are served by a gen­er­ous bath­room and sep­a­rate toi­let.

Out back there is an en­gag­ing and pri­vate out­door liv­ing space with BBQ area and spa, with one bed­room open­ing out here, and we guess there will be a fight for it among your fam­ily mem­bers!

Plus, there’s a huge triple car garage, loads of off-street park­ing, so­lar water heat­ing, town water and enough space to build a pool or ten­nis court.

Pat and Ken are giv­ing up their pride and joy as they plan to spend more time with their grand­chil­dren. Thus, open­ing up an op­por­tu­nity for an­other fam­ily to cre­ate many more happy mem­o­ries.

The views are price­less and the home is as good as new, but you don’t have to pay a mil­lion dol­lars for this.

All it takes to put your stamp on this mas­ter­piece is $888,000. View­ing at open home Sun­day 12 noon to 12.30pm or by ap­point­ment.
