Qual­ity home – large fam­ily size

Southern Real Estate Guide - - FRONT PAGE -

Forty years in the same own­er­ship is quite a rec­om­men­da­tion for a home – but it was ev­ery­thing that Vic­tor and Rona wanted for their fam­ily.

Now their happy home is ready for an­other fam­ily, and it’s been made all the more de­sir­able with an out­stand­ing new kitchen and bath­room, fresh paint, tiles and car­pet, and all sorts of other im­prove­ments.

The rock solid brick home at 1/54 Shirley Ave stands on a full sec­tion of 738 square me­tres – two full lev­els with five larger than av­er­age dou­ble bed­rooms, two bath­rooms, two upstairs liv­ing rooms, down­stairs kitch­enette and big rum­pus. There’s also a fan­tas­tic wide ve­ran­dah with a full canopy; it’s like adding an­other room to the home.

The home is flooded in nat­u­ral light, cour­tesy of all the gen­er­ous win­dows that fea­ture through­out. The main lounge is a per­fect ex­am­ple – two huge win­dows plus dou­ble french doors in­vite light and warmth, and there’s an ef­fi­cient wood­burner for when nights turn colder.

You sim­ply have to see the new kitchen. Kitchens were never a great fea­ture of 1960s home de­sign, so this huge new open plan kitchen and din­ing room comes as a wel­come sur­prise. It features a gran­ite food-prep and cook­ing is­land, stylish tiles and all-new ap­pli­ances in­clud­ing ce­ramic stove­top, stain­less steel oven, range­hood and dish­washer.

The new bath­room is an­other great looker with its stylish bath, van­ity and tiles, and sep­a­rate shower.

Down­stairs is per­fect for extended fam­ily or teenagers want­ing their own space. Apart from the rum­pus and kitch­enette there are two bed­rooms, a bath­room and toi­let. It has sep­a­rate ac­cess as well as in­ter­nal stairs; there are also laun­dry and stor­age fa­cil­i­ties down­stairs. In to­tal the home is an im­pres­sive 270 square me­tres.

Shirley Ave is a street of good solid homes on mostly full sec­tions, close to schools, shops, trans­port and near to the new Takanini shop­ping cen­tre. Num­ber 1/54 is a cor­ner sec­tion proudly sport­ing a high qual­ity new fence and gate, all an­chored in con­crete. The prop­erty is easy to man­age with a sub­stan­tial drive and off-street park­ing to com­ple­ment the large tan­dem garage.

All the work has been done – high qual­ity work it is too. Auc­tion, Wed­nes­day August 3 at 6pm in the rooms of Ray White Takanini at 30 Wal­ters Road, Takanini (un­less sold prior). View­ing: Satur­day/Sun­day 12.15-12.45pm. Con­tact: Garry Singh, Ray White Takanini, 021 239 9567.


This large, solidly built five-bed­room home on a handy cor­ner site has re­cently been treated to some high qual­ity ren­o­va­tions.

The main lounge is just one of three roomy liv­ing spa­ces, not count­ing the deck!

Two floors of com­fort­able fam­ily liv­ing, and oo­dles of park­ing space.

The spa­cious new kitchen has to be seen to be be­lieved – it oozes class.
