THIS nearly new, single-level home is conveniently located in an exclusive street, opposite Whakatane Hospital.

With three bedrooms, two bathrooms, a media room and plenty of storage space, this like-new home at the end of a recent development is perfect for a professional couple or empty nesters as well as families.

This easy-care, timeless elegant home is bound to stay looking this good for many years. The wide driveway is lined with two stunning ornamental trees with tiny pink blooms and easy-care pebble gardens. Extra parking along the side of the house is perfect for a small boat or for visitor parking.

The front door opens to a sunny, open-plan living area. Sliding doors off the lounge and dining areas open to a sun-soaked patio and lawn area.

There is an extra media room or lounge that can be closed off from the rest of the living space with recessed sliding doors.

The open-plan kitchen overlooks it all across a wide breakfast bar. The clean lines of the plentiful white cabinetry are unbroken with integrated oven, ceramic benchtop stove and rangehood. Over on the opposite bench are handy double sinks and a double dish drawer.
This living area is perfectly positioned to capture all-day sun and flows beautifully to the outdoor patio and backyard.

Three double bedrooms are situated off a hallway with three double-doored storage cupboards, including the hot water cupboard. Two of the bedrooms also have double wardrobes, while the master has a walk-in wardrobe.

The master bedroom also has sliding doors to the backyard and, of course, an en suite bathroom. Both bathrooms are spacious with extra-wide glass showers, toilet and ceramic vanity with storage. The main, family bathroom also has a stylish, free-standing bath.

The grounds are tidy and compact, yet there is still room for children to play. A raised vegetable garden, garden shed and well-placed young fruit trees are welcome additions to the back yard.

The internal access double garage is fully lined and carpeted and has further storage in the ceiling. The laundry is also situated in the garage and a rear door leads to the clothesline area.

With a Smart Vent ventilation system, double-glazing and plenty of natural light, this home is wonderfully warm.
