Southern Homes Thursday, February 17, 2011 1 SouthernHomes Modern, rustic charm You know the feeling when you chance upon something that's unexpected and incredibly exciting. That's what you experience when you first look at 25 Ashlynne Ave, a lovingly maintained 1950's residence that beckons you with its striking wine red exterior amid a lush green setting. For those who treasure the architecture of a bygone era, the expansive 1012 square metre property offers you and your family an exceptional lifestyle. Add in a quiet neighbourhood close to the heart of Papatoetoe, train station, schools and childcare, and you have an object of desire. Architecturally, the two-level home was far ahead of its time. Spacious, airy and light, with sweeping windows throughout, it has a contemporary feel while retaining the charming touches of yesteryear. The versatile layout offers five bedrooms and two living areas which can be easily re-configured to six bedrooms and a lounge, depending on your family's requirements. Downstairs there is the large formal lounge, served directly from the country kitchen, which comes with modern appliances as well as tongue and groove timber flooring. There are two bedrooms here, one of which opens out to the second deck and the secluded backyard, with alfresco dining under the vines. A graceful spiral staircase takes you upstairs where you have three spacious bedrooms, including the massive master bedroom which opens out via ranchsliders to the balcony. A double garage and plenty of off- street space are your parking options. Of course, there's a lot more and only a private viewing would do justice to this superb residence. Auction on March 19 at 12 noon on site (unless sold prior). Open an hour prior. Viewing at open homes Saturdays/ Sundays 1-1:45pm or by appointment. Call Dean Edmonds of Harcourts Papatoetoe on 277-9780 bus or 0274 730 179 mobile.
