Immaculately presented and so well designed, this beautiful 3-bedroom home in Hobsonville Point is perfectly located and sure to appeal to families, professionals and investors.

The large floor area allows for generous spaces right throughout the home, enhanced with extra high ceilings, and large windows and sliders. A fabulously open-plan kitchen, dining and living level flows directly to a north-facing patio that basks in all-day sun. There is space for children or pets to play on the secure backyard lawn and from the rear gate it’s virtually a stones-throw to one of the coolest parks in the area - Hobsonville Point Park & Playground.

Upstairs are all the bedrooms with built-in wardrobes and the full family bathroom that importantly includes a bath. One bedroom has its own balcony, providing the perfect spot to watch the sun go down, while the super-sized top bedroom offers the ultimate in versatility with potential uses being your Master bedroom, a shared bedroom, or a fantastic teenager retreat and hangout space. A work-out studio or home office would equally work in this fantastically large space.

Beautifully finished with stunning window dressings and all the modern features you’d expect including keyless entry, a security alarm, ventilation system, fantastic storage and a backyard shed, this energy-efficient and well-insulated home also comes backed with the balance of a transferable Master Build Guarantee for your peace of mind.

I saw this and it reminded me of so many people I love who are doing this.

A colleague Bruce, had posted this and I wanted to share my thoughts.

It's a choice you know to live like this. It's not mandatory, it's not a have to. You can do anything you want. And that's no lie. You just have to want it bad enough.

If I told you that I have changed careers 3x times and been successful in all of them, would that help you shift your thinking a little? To believe you can try something new, something that you dont have to grind for the next 40 years. Wouldn't it be great?

You dont have to wait till you win lotto either.

I believe anyone can change for a financial free independent Lifestyle but it doesnt really count how much I believe because the only belief that does count is yours!
