Southern Homes : November 18th 2010
Southern Homes Thursday, November 18, 2010 43 LIFESTYLE & RURAL OPEN HOME AUCTION SATURDAY Two homes -- two bites of the cherry! Rear home: A peaceful two-bedroom dwelling with full kitchen, living and bathroom. Light and bright: The kitchen and dining room in the main house - newly painted, with a new kitchen bench top going in. Front home: This three-bedroom home, like the rear dwelling is in the process of a complete repaint. If you are looking for a first home that gives you income to help with the mortgage; or if you're a large family that wants some individual space; or if you're a savvy investor looking for dual incomes from one property ... you should take a look at 8 Appleby Place in Mangere East. It really does tick a lot of boxes. For example, there are two separate homes on one title, located in a peaceful cul de sac with supportive neighbours. There are also two entrances and two sets of covered parking; outdoor security lights for both homes; and a fence and gate separating the houses. Several schools are in easy walking distance, as are local shops, and there is nearby access to the motorway and airport. The two dwellings have just undergone a total interior repaint, with some upgrading of the main home's kitchen and bathroom. The property has been in the present ownership for nearly 20 years, sometimes rented, sometimes a gather- ing place for extended family. Only now, with the semi- retired owners living too far from Auckland City to man- age the property, has the decision been made to sell. The front house, con- structed of weatherboard, has three bedrooms all with wardrobes; a light, bright kitchen and dining room, and a separate lounge with open fire. There's a full bathroom with bath and shower; separ- ate toilet and laundry. The carport provides undercover entrance to the house. The rear dwelling is a pri- vate two-bedroom cottage constructed of Hardiplank. It has a good kitchen with wraparound benches; open plan living/dining with ranchslider access to a patio; also a bathroom and laundry. This home has a lockup garage with a private path to the door. A property with definite possibilities, 8 Appleby Place goes to auction on Saturday December 11, onsite at 3pm, unless sold prior. View by open homes: Twilight viewing Thursdays 5-6pm: weekend viewing Saturday- Sunday 2-3pm, or by appointment.
