THIS very well-kept, three-bedroom home is in a great location, opposite the entrance to Warren Cole Walkway.

Hikurangi Street is a quiet, well-established street that is also handy to shops and schools.

This brick home has the added advantage of three-car garaging as well as plenty of off-street parking for the boat, campervan and trailer. Its tidy, well-thought-out gardens are organised into private courtyard areas in the front and back, which are perfect for barbecues or simply relaxing outdoors.

The 1960s home has been beautifully maintained and has kept up with the times with features such as a modern kitchen, open plan living and air conditioning. This home also has the benefit of solar water heating, which will save plenty off those power bills.

Some features of the original interior have been retained, such as natural wood door frames and skirtings

The kitchen is open to the dining area and is fresh and modern looking in smart colours and overlooks the backyard. A walk-in pantry will offer huge appeal for buyers.

The dining area is large enough for a good-sized dining table and has sliding doors opening to a private, walled courtyard garden and patio area at the front of the house. This courtyard features some stunning rose bushes in raised stone-walled gardens.

Japanese-style sliding screen doors open from here to the lounge, which has large picture windows. These have recently been fitted with sunscreen roller blinds to keep the home cool and private as well as adding a clean, modern look to the room.

A separate laundry area off the kitchen leads out to a fully-fenced backyard area with a small paved patio.

This backyard is, once again, very private and the gardener of the family is well catered for with a covered vegetable garden and a system for collecting water from the roof. There are also some well-established fruit trees.

Back inside the bedrooms are all a good size with spacious wardrobes and more storage space in the hallway. The bathroom has a modern, glass walled shower and a bath and the toilet is separate.

The fisher of the family is also well catered for with a paved area tucked away tidily behind the shed with fish-cleaning bench and enough space to park a trailer.

Best of all though, this home comes with not only a two-car internal-access garage, with workshop and storage space, but a third, stand-alone garage.Great for the handyman or hobbyist.
