Here is a place to hang your HEART with a lot to offer. A warm and spacious two bedroom stand alone home which is economical to run, and easy to maintain. The north facing deck and fully fenced yard is a perfect spot for an entertainment area, and somewhere for children and pets to play, with parents having the added security of knowing they are safe. So what is on offer you ask? Our Owners response was swift and unequivocal. It is a warm, dry home with space, security, and such a handy location with nice quiet neighbours. They say that friends say when they visit that they like the homely, warm, child friendly layout and that it is great for entertaining. It is also very handy to the Blockhouse Bay village shops, cafes and library, and so handy to Lynn Mall. Being one house back off the road means it is very quiet and the ample turning space means access is very easy onto and off of Blockhouse Bay Road. The separate single lock up garage allows for a workspace or additional storage, plus additional off street parking means entertaining family and friends is hassle free. The garage also allowed the owners to set up a work from home office so it has an abundance of power points, an internet/phone connection and a TV aerial outlet. The home is in zone for Blockhouse Bay Intermediate School, Lynfield College and a number of local primary schools. Nearby suburbs include New Lynn, Titirangi and Mt Roskill, with easy access to the newly completed motorway system to the city, airport and west, bus routes, parks, beaches and a diverse range of public amenities. The owner has aggressively priced this home as they wish to take advantage of another opportunity out of Auckland, so be quick to take advantage of this limited time opportunity. The property is currently tenanted so please respect the tenants privacy. Call us to make an appointment to view, Kathryn and Paul Davie, 021 521256 or 390 4296
