These are just a few of the words that come close to describing 20 Rothery Road, a three-bedroom and study home in the much sought after Hillpark enclave. Standing tall on a level 999 square metre sec- tion, this contemporary looking beauty is designed with the family in mind. The current owners have created a highly versatile environ- ment where comfortable interior spaces flow out effortlessly to the enter- tainment areas outside. Most people are sold on the location alone. Hillpark is a suburb that is enjoying huge popu- larity because of the happy combination of the situation (just minutes to the motorway and the exciting entertainment hubs of Manukau City), picture perfect homes, and great schools. Attractions in the area include the Auckland Regional Botanic Gar- den, cafes and excellent schooling. Plus, you can catch glimpses of the harbour, hills and Sky Tower. Exceedingly private, with full brush fencing, the house has a welcom- ing presence that s evi- dent as you enter the sweeping driveway. First up is a foyer that leads you to a heart-warming lounge, which comes with pitched cathedral ceiling, native timber floors and open fire. From here there s mul- tiple access via French doors to a covered deck that s perfect for enter- taining family and friends. The lounge flows into a north-facing conserva- tory and a modern, open- plan kitchen with break- fast bar. The neat layout offers a range of options regarding where to have your dining area. The sleeping accom- modation is set down an elegant, curved hallway awash in timber flooring. There are two double bedrooms that are served by a bathroom and separate toilet. The mas- ter bedroom opens out to a patio that extends to a paved alfresco area in the back garden. Imagine waking up to the sights and sounds of nature. Monday morn- ings will never be the same again! The garden has a tool shed, glass house and hobby room, and plenty of mature trees. Beat the price rise with the estab- lished kitchen garden. A drivethrough garage and plenty of off-street space are your parking options. Plus, there s a laundry with access to the back. The current owners are reluctantly giving up their cherished residence because they are South bound due to profes- sional reasons. However, it has created a tremen- dous opportunity for one lucky family to acquire the good life. The home will be sold at auction on Wednes- day, November 24, 6pm onsite (unless sold prior). Viewing at open home Sunday 1-1.45pm or by appointment. See online at www.harveys.co.nz ID# PAK6688. Graham Clark of Harveys Papakura is marketing this property. Call 027 564 2700, 298 4000 bus.
