The Team from Neighbourly Property

The owners are embarking on a new direction in life and to move forward their home must be sold!

This is your opportunity to purchase a builder's own home that has been built to stand the test of time and to exacting standards. It is rare to come across a property where thought and care has gone into every aspect. The next owners will be able to sit back and enjoy!

With 'look at me' appeal and good design, this stunning 270sqm home makes the most of the 4447sqm section. With easy living in mind, the kitchen and family room are the central meeting point and open out to an extensive north facing deck and sunken courtyard. Split into 2 wings, the master bedroom with ensuite and walk in robe, and fourth bedroom are at one end of the home, whereas the other two bedrooms, bathroom and second lounge are at the other end. This configuration is ideal for those downsizing, families and extended families. The quality of the build will not disappoint discerning buyers. Care has been taken in the siting to ensure the impact of the sun's passive energy is maximised. Higher spec insulation, a wood burner, 2 heat pumps and a gas fire ensure this home is toasty throughout the winter months.

For those requiring extra storage a 140sqm fully enclosed shed with 3.3m stud and 3 phase power is an additional feature. The shed is ideal for storage, the car enthusiast, the campervan or all the other toys we collect along the way.

Fully irrigated from a bore and laid out for easy management, the garden has been developed to be easy care in the future.

This is a property where attention to detail is evident in every aspect. This is your opportunity to purchase the ‘good life' and enjoy the labour of others! Sale day is auction day! Call today for more details or viewing times.

AUCTION: 4pm, Thursday 17 October 2019 at Ray White, Level 1, Conway Building, 188 High Street, Rangiora (unless sold prior)
