Southern Homes : January 15th 2015
Southern Homes Thursday, January 15, 2015 Space, style and sun close to Drury If you’re on the lookout for a stylish family sanctuary in a desirable neighbourhood, then 45 Parkhaven Dr is highly recommended. Just five minutes to Drury Village, Papakura town centre and the Southern Motorway, this is an enclave with a great sense of community. Set well back from the main arterial road, you’ll discover a network of pretty streets and a collection of elite homes. Zoned for good schools, the convenient – and tranquil – location has attracted a large number of discerning families. A measure of pride in ownership is that it’s unusual for homes to come on the market here. The property has been completely brought into the year 2015 after an extensive renovation and now boasts a new kitchen, new flooring, new paint and new lighting. Plus, some clever re-configuration by the owners has resulted in more rooms, more privacy and a substantial increase in floor space. Set at the end of a private driveway shared by equally stylish homes, the 1245 square metre property is completely secured with electric gates and intercom access. As you enter the place, you get a sense of being far away from the traffic and crowds. Offering sweeping views of the Drury Hills, the house is nestled amid generous courtyards, partially covered porticos and elegant gardens, creating plenty of space for alfresco dining. The hard work is done and all you need to do is put your feet up this summer. The neat layout of the house and extensive use of glass ensure that plenty of natural light pours in virtually all day. The formal lounge can be shut off from the other living areas, which include a dining area and family room which wrap around the kitchen, making entertaining a breeze. The new kitchen comes with granite benchtops, a cooking island, a walk in pantry, and a 900mm wide oven with gas hobs that will impress any aspiring chefs in the family. The sleeping accommodation is privately located. Overall, there are five bedrooms, including one currently being used as an office. Re-configuration has resulted in two double bedrooms in a separate wing. One of these bedrooms, with ensuite, is separate from the others – ideal if you have extended family or frequently have guests. The rest of the bedrooms are on the other side of the house, including a massive master suite with a large walk in wardrobe, plus extra storage cupboards and an ensuite. The section has been beautifully landscaped with rose bushes and mature trees, and the backyard is separately fenced, making it safe for young children and pets. The home is listed for $849,000. If this is the lifestyle you have envisioned for your family, contact your local Mike Pero agent, Fred Heikell on 021 800 499 or 296 0268 for viewing times. 23 Mint condition: Following an extensive renovation, 45 Parkhaven Dr is good as new.
