Great views, Pahure­hure lo­ca­tion

Southern Real Estate Guide - - FRONT PAGE -

Stephanie and Peter have lived most of their mar­ried life in and around Pahure­hure. And when they down­size from their fam­ily home they’re sure to stay in the neigh­bour­hood, such is their love for it.

You won’t see the two-storey con­tem­po­rary home at 72A El­liot Street from the road, but when you’re in­side you’ll be im­pressed by the out­look. It ex­tends far and wide over the Pahure­hure rooftops to the Hunuas and hills ring­ing the south­ern, eastern and north­ern sky­line.

Stephanie loves the sun­rise as seen from the mas­ter bed­room and kitchen; the house catches the sun all day through to sun­set.

‘‘The views are the rea­son we’re here,’’ she says, although they’re only part of the at­trac­tion. A well planned four-bed­room fam­ily home, it af­fords pri­vacy for all the fam­ily plus a fine kitchen and spa­cious bath­rooms, sev­eral deck op­tions and a great lo­ca­tion – a sought-af­ter street cen­tral to lo­cal shops, schools, Pa­pakura cen­tral and the mo­tor­way.

The two down­stairs bed­rooms lose noth­ing by com­par­i­son to the up­stairs – one is a cosy and com­fort­able, very pri­vate; the other has its own ac­cess to a deck and cor­ner court­yard – per­fect for ex­tended fam­ily or older child. Be­tween the two is a good-sized, warm of­fice.

The ground floor is served by a large bath­room with sep­a­rate shower and bath, good van­ity and heat­ing. This floor also has in­ter­nal ac­cess to a big­ger-than- dou­ble garage and laun­dry.

Up­stairs opens out to the de­light­ful liv­ing ar­eas.

A cen­trally placed din­ing area is flanked by the mod­ern kitchen and spa­cious lounge. Both of these rooms have deck ac­cess and farreaching views.

The kitchen is well de­signed with loads of handy work space and stor­age, and a full com­ple­ment of qual­ity ap­pli­ances.

A heat pump serves all of these rooms.

The mas­ter bed­room is another spa­cious room, with two dou­ble wardrobes, en suite and deck.

All of the home’s wardrobes have or­gan­ised stor­age sys­tems.

Out­doors, main­te­nance is a breeze – a ‘three-minute lawn’, cit­rus trees, pa­tios, bin stor­age, gar­den shed, all fully fenced and gated: 508 square me­tres in to­tal.

The lo­cal shops in­clud­ing dairy, bak­ery, chemist and take­away are just two min­utes’ stroll away and the schools are all rec­om­mended, in­clud­ing Rose­hill Col­lege.

Now the chil­dren have quit the nest, John and Stephanie are down­siz­ing.

72A El­liot St goes to auc­tion on Au­gust 23, on­site at 6pm.

View­ing: Satur­day/Sun­day 2.00-2.30pm. Con­tact Hen Kal­ish, Har­courts BCRE Ltd Pa­pakura 022 637 0661 / 09 298 6024.

‘Re­lax’ ad­vises the wall plaque, which pretty much sums up the liv­ing in 72A El­liot Street.
