LOW maintenance, easy care, close to the beach and ready to move into now.

This single-level brick and tile home at the western end of Te Horo Drive in Ohope has already been vacated by its current owners so is eagerly awaiting new occupants.

Situated in a quiet cul-de-sac, surrounded by other quality homes and only a short distance from the harbour and the ocean, the three-bedroom home has much to offer buyers.

There’s plenty of room here for a family but the nature of the property will also be appealing to investors or retirees.

This home looks impressive from the street with its formal covered entry and coloured concrete driveway that complements the brick.

The front door opens into a generous open plan living area that is warm and bright, perfectly positioned to catch the sun.

The size and shape allows much flexibility with regard to furniture and creating separate zones. French doors open to a sheltered, north-facing outdoor patio area that stays sunny for much of the day.

The living areas flow through to a dining/kitchen area that also opens onto the patio area.
Sliding windows in the kitchen mean serving your summer barbecue guests is a breeze.

There are three good size bedrooms, the master with an en suite, walk-in wardrobe and French doors that open onto the garden.

Other features worth mentioning are the internal access double garage with painted floor, the internal vacuum, and multiple garden sheds.

The 675 square metre section is fully fenced with a few gardens, including a raised vegetable bed, but there is plenty of scope for further landscaping development.

The back yard is also accessible via gates for anyone wanting to store a trailer, boat or caravan off the street.

This home was built in 1999 and remains in pristine condition.

While there are some things new owners might wish to update at some stage, it is very much a home that can be moved into now and enjoyed.
