Quality home – large family size
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.
