Irresistible and affordable in Papakura
There will be one very lucky family that will be celebrating all summer.
Located in a quiet and sought after Opaheke neighbourhood, 1/2 Albert St is a character filled beauty that is ready to lay out the welcome mat for its next owners. Brilliantly brought into the year 2016, the property is highly recommended for first-time buyers and young professionals or retirees looking to give up the care of large properties but value space, privacy and contemporary comforts.
Ownership comes with several benefits, not the least being ultra convenience. As well as enjoying quick motorway access, the property is an easy stroll to town, the train station, local shops and Opaheke School. High school zoning is for Rosehill College.
Current owners Stephanie and Joshua Totman – who acquired the home in 2013 and have lived in it since February 2014 – have extensively renovated the place.
‘‘Over the past two years we have slowly worked on each room, making it a light, airy family home for our growing family to enjoy,’’ Stephanie says. ‘‘I enjoy finding pieces for the house as I have an interest in home decor.’’
The attention to detail is evident throughout the house, which is beautifully presented, with warm native timber floors providing a stunning contrast to the neutral hues of the walls and high ceilings. The living area is open and airy, and the home has a warm and inviting feel. Light cascades into the house from the large windows, making you feel part of the surroundings.
Josh is an avid photographer and enjoys displaying his passion in the home.
‘‘This is a fabulous home that offers an inspiring backdrop for the both of us,’’ Stephanie points out.
‘‘Our daughter Florence is the centre of our lives and she has enjoyed her first year growing in this house.’’
Entertaining friends and family is a breeze, with excellent flow from the kitchen and dining areas out to the massive rear deck, which is sunny, sheltered and perfect for BBQs.
The fully fenced easy care section provides a great playing area for kids, and you can try your hand at growing your own veges in the raised garden beds.
In our experience, opportunities to acquire an affordable home in a quality neighbourhood are rather rare in Auckland. Which is why we believe the property will generate interest among first home buyers and investors.
Viewing at open homes Saturday and Sunday 2pm to 2.30pm. Sale by negotiation. For more information call of Alison Kemp of Barfoot & Thompson Papakura on 021 848 888.
