It’s hard not to fall at least a little bit in love with this well presented 1950s weatherboard three-bedroom home, or to stop yourself from imagining the lounge doors flung open and friends sitting in the gorgeous outdoor entertainment space, soaking up the afternoon sun. It’s a very cleverly-appointed house with all kinds of different spaces for relaxation, study, and interacting with others. The perfect mix of privacy versus social space.
Upstairs are three double bedrooms all with wardrobes, a lovely west-facing lounge area that flows straight out on the deck, a spacious kitchen with a gas hob and a clean modern bathroom. Head downstairs to find a cute study tucked in an alcove just round the corner from a large rumpus/basement space you’d never even imagine was even there. It would be perfect as a second lounge space, kids’ area, pool room or teenage den. It feels quite separate from the rest of the house - a blessing when you need the kids to watch Paw Patrol or or play Playstation elsewhere!
Also downstairs, the laundry sits discreetly in a corner of the basement and the rest of the space underneath the house has been cleared to create a workshop or large storage area for all those boxes full of camping gear, clothes and Christmas decorations every household has. Winter warmth is delivered via insulation, a ceiling cavity ventilation system, a heat pump and a wood burner.
The property sits on a freehold title and offers off-street parking for two cars in this exceptionally quiet and leafy avenue known for its settled community of long term residents; it would suit a young family looking to move to this very popular part of Auckland. It’s an easy ten minute walk (or two minute drive) to the village shops including a community centre, cafes, restaurants, grocers, a great library, pub, refillery, sports fields, a supermarket and parks. Bus routes, local schools and picturesque walks are all close by, our beloved and brilliant coastal walkway is a couple of minutes walk away and access to the motorway couldn't be easier, making this the ideal place for people who’d like to become part of this very friendly community. Better still, this property is super handy for Rutherford Primary School and Rutherford College.
