FAMILY FRIENDLY: A smart, modern-looking home with three bedrooms plus an office, fully-fenced section and swimming pool. Photos supplied

THIS three-bedroom home on a large, Mokorua Gorge property, complete with swimming pool is everything your kids have been hoping for.

Completely restyled indoors and out, this 1980s-built home offers a contemporary sophistication with no expense spared.

Before you even walk in the door, you will be impressed with the beautifully landscaped, fully fenced 623-square-metre section, with attractive ornamental and fruit trees.

The pool area is surrounded by privacy fencing There is outdoor lighting for night swimming and entertaining and only requires the addition of your barbecue and friends for the perfect house-warming venue.

The exterior cladding has been painted in a neutral colour complemented by remote-control cedar garage doors. This double garage is extra long so there is plenty of space for a workbench or storage at the rear. A door at the back of the garage leads to a large under-floor storage space.

A parking area to one side of the driveway is perfect for a boat or campervan and the whole section is well secured with an electronic gate.

Upstairs, the living areas are all on one level. A sunny deck has ranch- sliding doors leading through to the lounge and dining-kitchen area. The very sunny lounge with vaulted ceiling, deep-pile carpet, good quality fitted curtains and a free-standing fireplace dominates the front of the house.

Walk through to a modern dining and kitchen area with textured floor tiles. The kitchen has a gas hob and gas heated hot water. Included is a new Westinghouse dishwasher. A separate laundry off the kitchen with a large linen cupboard leads through to the back door.

The bathroom has been enlarged and and features floor-to-ceiling subway tiling with mirrored recesses and a heater. There is a contoured shower with dual heads including a waterfall shower and good water pressure. The bath has a tile surround and the toilet is separate.

Three bedrooms plus an office are located further down the hallway. A heat transfer and ventilation system help to circulate the heat from the fireplace. One of the bedrooms has a dimmer switch and two of the bedrooms have mounted wall brackets for televisions.

The textured wallpaper, luxurious curtains and blinds and quality floor coverings throughout are very on-trend and add interest to every room.

Also included in the property are a good-sized glass house and raised vege garden for any green-fingered family members and a very zen-style water feature completes the picture.

The vendors are expecting interest over $578,000. Be sure to express your interest soon.
