THIRTY thousand has been slashed off the price of this three-bedroom Whakatane home.

The owners are keen to sell and prepared to meet the market, so anyone who has been eyeing up this property should make an offer.

Sunny, modern and quiet, this brick and tile home is perfect for retirees looking to downsize or a family wanting a quiet haven.

Built in 2000, and situated in a quiet enclave of modern developments at the town end of Riverside Drive, this address is similar to a cul de sac, in being off the main street, with no through-traffic.

Being close to schools, playcentre, and fully fenced, mean it would also suit a family.

The single-level home on a flat section has parking for two cars in the driveway, securely located inside a very easy rolling and convenient sliding gate.

Neatly edged, easy-care pebble gardens provide an attractive mixture of flowers, grasses and shrubs, and a very fruitful lemon tree.

The tiled entrance way leads through to the open plan living area and with new carpeting throughout and tiled flooring in the kitchen and bathroom, it is immediately obvious that this home is in very tidy condition.

The lounge, dining room and kitchen are very sunny, with large windows overlooking the garden, which are angled to catch the sun.

The lounge has sliding doors opening to a patio area for easy outdoor flow. This area is perfect for outdoor dining and entertaining.

The kitchen is neat and practical with modern features such as integrated ceramic stove top and oven, double sinks, dishwasher, wrap-around breakfast bar and a large pantry.

The master bedroom also looks out to this patio area through north-facing windows. It has a walk-through wardrobe leading to the bathroom. This has a shower and bath and separate toilet.

The two remaining bedrooms are spacious with built-in wardrobes.

An internal access double garage with automatic doors makes life even easier.

The garage contains the laundry and has great natural light and access to the clothesline area behind the house.

Here you will also find a good-sized garden shed, some small vegetable garden beds and a grape vine.

The solid brick construction and concrete tile roof create a worry-free, low maintenance home and mean this property will tick all the boxes for a wide range of buyers.
