Two plus two investment awaits
There’s always a rush of interest when a ‘For Sale’ sign goes up in Opaheke’s Butterworth Ave.
Long regarded as one of Papakura’s best streets – certainly one of its prettiest – it is close to everything and has the Kirks Bush Domain just opposite.
Number 4 Butterworth Ave is at the domain end of the street – a 711 square metre property containing two soundly built twobedroom units.
Built of cedar and brick, they have an effective firewall between them running from the roof right down to the foundations.
They’re very separate in other ways as well – separate entrances, garages, outdoor taps, letterboxes, water and power. Their similarities are their warm and sunny aspect, a recently replaced roof, full ceiling and floor insulation, two double bedrooms apiece, light and bright living spaces with picture windows, and access to a north-facing rear garden. Fibre optic cabling is currently being installed in the street for fast broadband.
It all adds up to a versatile property with several inviting prospects: for investors it has a combined rental valuation of $800 per week; for first home buyers or downsizing retirees there’s a home in one with an income from the second; or you could use both to accommodate extended family but still enjoy private living.
The left unit (4A) has a striking front entrance in the form of a great stone facade with a large porthole window. The covered porch leads into a spacious lounge with a lovely street outlook including mature kauri and other native trees.
Throughout you can see the quality of construction, with plaster ceilings, moulded cornices and other nice touches. The kitchen and dining area is open plan, with a separate laundry alcove and a new hot water cylinder. The unit has great storage, both in the hall and bedrooms; also in the garage where there’s also a workroom and rear garden access.
Both bedrooms are goodsized doubles, the main bedroom being blessed with two double wardrobes taking up an entire wall.
There’s a full bathroom with shower, bath, vanity and heat lamps, and a separate toilet alongside.
The second unit (4B) has the same basic layout – it has a slightly smaller second bedroom, but this is offset by a full laundry and a dedicated dining area and galley kitchen.
The units are close to Drury and Papakura shops and the train, with the motorway straight up Beach Rd. In zone for Opaheke and Rosehill schools.
An outstanding Opaheke opportunity, 4 Butterworth Ave is to be sold at auction at 12 noon on July 21 in Bayleys rooms, 292 Great South Rd, Takanini.
Open home Sunday 1.30 to 2pm; appointments contact Shelley Grieve at Bayleys counties office, 213 1627 DDI or 021 326 511.
Two roomy, comfortable units with an attractive street presence in a prime Butterworth Ave location.

The unit on the left enjoys a sunny open plan dining and kitchen.
