Southern Homes : February 12th 2015
2 Thursday, February 12, 2015 Southern Homes Jump in: 7Barnhill Crescent in Pahurehure is loaded with options for year round entertaining. Sun, space and comforts in Pahurehure Located in an established neighbourhood where families have shared the space for generations, 7 Barnhill Crescent in Pahurehure offers the same quality of life that our parents and grandparents enjoyed. An exceedingly quiet street with a collection of quality homes, it offers a sense of belonging that’s missing in today’s impersonal suburbs. Another key reason for the sustained desirability of this address is its fantastic location. Just a couple of minutes to the motorway, the property is also within a short radius to schools, shopping and dining hotspots, the fitness centre, pool and Ray Small Park. Quite simply, if you’re planning to upgrade or just want more space, this one must be on your viewing itinerary. As you come down the driveway, what strikes you about the property is the amount of space – all 1113 square metres of it. The robustly built (brick and iron roof) house has the appeal of a homestead with a contemporary flavour. The courtyard out front comes with a tandem garage and double car port, which are perfect for parking your fleet, or for sheltered outdoor entertaining. The main dwelling is a spacious three-bedroom house, with a rumpus that can potentially be a fourth bedroom. Plus there’s an office/nursery. The bedrooms are served by a bathroom, separate toilet and laundry. The hub of the house is an open- plan lounge – heated by a gas fire – with ranchslider access to the patio, leading up to a landscaped private garden, with full fencing and mature trees offering complete privacy. Here there’s plenty of space for a spa pool, alfresco dining and a vege garden. The kitchen/dining area also opens out to the patio from two sides, allowing sunlight to cascade in virtually all day. The cherry on the cake is a private sleepout set amid the lush garden. Fully self-contained, it comes with a bathroom, kitchenette and a deck with direct access to the poolside entertaining area. It is ideally suited for teenagers, grandparents, or long-term guests. Clearly, this is a versatile residence that comes with options to add, extend or expand when you are ready. But more than anything else, they don’t make streets like this any more. To be sold via auction at 12 noon, March 10, 2015 (unless sold prior), at the Conference Centre, Manukau Sports Bowl, 1 Te Irirangi Drive, Manukau. Viewing at open homes 1.00 to 1.30pm, Saturday and Sunday. ❚ For more information call Pamela Cox or Kim Fuhlendroff of Barfoot & Thompson Papakura.
