One too many homes - this has to go!

Southern Real Estate Guide - - FRONT PAGE -

What hap­pens when you cre­ate a fam­ily home that’s so per­fect for fam­ily needs, not even the grown up kids want to leave?

That’s what oc­curred with the im­mac­u­late four-bed­room home on 69 Capri­ana Place in Karaka Har­bour­side. Trou­ble was, they ran out of room for all the big boys’ toys. The only so­lu­tion was to build an­other home around the cor­ner large enough to han­dle it all.

It means say­ing good­bye to a pic­ture per­fect three-year-old home with lots of lux­u­ries – but that is good news for the next lucky fam­ily!

The sin­gle-level brick and cedar home is lo­cated op­po­site a re­serve and pond that links up with the pop­u­lar har­bour­side walk.

The gabled roof cre­ates an at­trac­tive por­tico en­trance be­yond which is a choice of liv­ing ar­eas and gar­den ac­cess points.

It’s a home de­signed for re­lax­ation – in some lux­ury. The fam­ily, din­ing and kitchen ar­eas are all open plan but these are large, clearly de­fined spa­ces. The kitchen has ev­ery­thing in­clud­ing a cen­tral is­land/break­fast bar in en­gi­neered stone; walk-in scullery and topflight ap­pli­ances in­clud­ing gas stove­top cook­ing and lux­u­ri­ous dou­ble fridge-freezer.

The din­ing room is an­other large space, ac­cess­ing the rear pa­tio and the spa pool area (the spa stays), while the fam­ily liv­ing area is a won­der­ful, light-filled cen­tral space also with gar­den ac­cess. There is a for­mal lounge at the front of the house.

The home’s sleep­ing quar­ters are di­vided into mas­ter suite on one side of the cen­tral liv­ing, and three bed­rooms and fam­ily bath­room on the other. These three bed­rooms are spa­cious dou­bles with or­gan­ised dou­ble wardrobes, served by a fully tiled bath­room with sep­a­rate bath and shower.

The mas­ter bed­room has its own ac­cess to the spa pool, plus a huge walk-in wardrobe and en suite.

This wing of the house also fea­tures a sep­a­rate laun­dry and in­ter­nal dou­ble garage. There’s plenty of stor­age here and else­where in the home. The home has cen­tral vac­uum and smart vent sys­tems.

In a highly de­sir­able neighbourhood with close mo­tor­way and air­port con­nec­tions as well as top schools, this is a pres­ti­gious ad­dress. And it has to go – the own­ers are com­mit­ted to sell­ing at auc­tion, on Wed­nes­day Septem­ber 21, on site at 6pm (un­less sold prior).

View­ing: Sun­day 2pm to 2.45pm or by ap­point­ment; con­tact San­dra Bul­lock, Har­courts BCRE Ltd Pa­pakura phone 021 713 750.


Mod­ern, com­fort­able fam­ily liv­ing is the essence of this sin­gle level Karaka Har­bour­side home.

Spa­cious open plan fam­ily liv­ing ar­eas are full of light and flow.

A su­perb kitchen with walk-in scullery and dou­ble-fridge freezer.

A pri­vate and lux­u­ri­ous spa bath – it’s the ul­ti­mate stress re­liever.
