Children, pets, cars, boats and caravans – they can all be accommodated in comfort here in Alexander Avenue.

FAMILIES, check this out.

This sunny three-bedroom brick home in central Whakatane is value-packed for families.
Being brick, it is low maintenance. Being north-facing with plenty of window, it is extremely sunny. And being fully fenced, it is perfect for families with young children and pets.

A bonus for potential buyers with teenagers or extended family is the sleepout with toilet attached to the back of the super-sized garage.

The current owner has spent the past few years renovating and giving some love and attention to the property. The result is impressive with an attractive new kitchen featuring masses of bench space and modern stainless steel appliances, a new bathroom that sparkles in white with a matt black floor, and an open plan living area that oozes comfort.

A separate formal dining area has been created at the southern end of the kitchen which leaves lots of space for the lounge at the northern end. This part of the house enjoys the sun all day and is set up for family entertaining with large bi-folding doors opening the space to a covered outdoor patio area overlooking the garden.

Plenty of fruit trees are planted here and it is home to a cute cubby house that will stay with the property.

Back inside, off the hallway, are the bathroom and three good size bedrooms.
All are neutrally decorated and feature the same plush dark carpet that adorns the living areas.

A heat pump in the hallway ensures the bedrooms stay warm in winter while the living areas are well-served by a gas fire. There’s also a gas hob in the kitchen atop an electric oven.

Outside there is a fish filleting and plant potting area behind the garage and extensive off-street parking for those with multiple vehicles, including caravans and boats.
For those not already convinced that this is the ultimate family home, think about the location.

There’s a pre-school across the road, a primary school further along Alexander Avenue and two secondary schools and the Kopeopeo shopping centre within easy walking distance.

The aquatic centre is close by and the dairy is right on your doorstep. Perfect!

There has already been plenty of interest in this property so it is not expected to last long on the market. Prompt inspection is advised.
