Lifestyle retreat – city connected
There’s something for the whole family in this unique lifestyle property handily located near to Drury and Opaheke.
At around 1.1 hectares it is a generous but manageable size. There are two areas of lawn, raised vegetable gardens, a sunny courtyard, workshop, sheds, pens and native bush with pond and stream, even resident glow worms.
The four-bedroom weatherboard and brick home at 29 Coal Mine Road enjoys an elevated position with a rural outlook and farreaching views from the Drury Hills to the Manukau Heads.
Built on four levels, it offers spacious, warm and welcoming family and entertainment areas plus options for office or study, kids-teenage-parent zones and ample storage.
The home has undergone quality renovations, including a brilliant new kitchen with induction cooking, two ovens, walk-in pantry and impressive benchtops.
It links to a large dining area with room to host a banquet; proceeding to a spacious, light and comfortable lounge with high ceilings and modern bay window – a beautiful room.
For sunny days there’s a great outdoor dining space, complete with outdoor fire and schist chimney to keep dinner guests warm as the conversation drifts into the evening.
The bedrooms are all a good size, each with cosily warm heating and access to either a balcony, deck or directly outdoors. Pride of place goes to the master bedroom, a genuine suite with walk-in wardrobe, en suite, space for extra furniture – and a commanding view in three directions.
The other bedrooms are served by a well-appointed family bathroom with shower and spa bath.
The spacious property has two entrances, one leading up to the house and garaging, the other to a workshop with large access door, three-phase power and 90 square metres more or less of work and storage space. The two driveways meet to create a return drive.
Plenty here then for young and old – the hobby farmer, car enthusiast, gardener, entertainer, but most of all families who love to create their own adventure.
It’s close to town, only minutes to Drury Village with easy motorway access, or to the train at Papakura.
The property is on the market for the first time in 12 years.
29 Coal Mine Rd Opaheke goes to auction on Saturday August 6 at 2pm in the new LJ Hooker Karaka office (unless sold prior). Viewing: Sundays 2-3pm. Contact Vivienne Manak, LJ Hooker Karaka, phone 021 438 848.
