Whether you re a young couple looking for the perfect family nest, a retired couple downsizing to an easy-care abode, or someone who just loves colonial character, 5 Regent St in Papatoetoe has to be on your list! From its white picket fence and weeping cherry trees to its character brick facings -- all the way through to its secret garden and sheltered patios -- this three-double bedroom has that definite feel-good factor. Although it has a pleasing cottagey look and feel, this two-storey home has plenty of space: Three good-sized double bedrooms, a proper dining room, large separate lounge, fully functional kitchen, full bathroom, separ- ate laundry, internal access garaging, and toilets both upstairs and downstairs. The dining room opens onto the front patio, while the lounge accesses both front and rear patio areas -- giving you plenty of options for enjoying the outdoors which are both sheltered and sunny. There is a small patch of lawn to mow, about two minutes worth, but for the most part it is very easy-care. There are mature trees, a vegetable garden, healthy grape vines, a garden shed and attractive arches -- a most appealing property. A well-constructed home, it has character features like the lounge s decorative plas- ter ceiling and colonial-style window framing, and while the kitchen is a little bit dated it has a charm of its own. From here an archway leads into the dining room, a room with an intimate atmos- phere. Upstairs the bedrooms are lovely, light and roomy, with the master bedroom having a walk-in wardrobe. The internal access garage runs the full depth of the house, with a workshop and extra storage -- there is also good under-stair storage inside. The extended driveway to the side of the garage can park four vehicles; there s even room to manoeuvre a trailer or small boat behind the garage. Situated close to Great South Rd, transport and shops and in good school zones, this alluring property is bound to attract plenty of interest, even before the auc- tion date: Saturday March 3, 2012 onsite at 1pm (unless sold prior), with final viewing one hour before the auction. The owners have bought, so are motivated vendors. View by open home Sunday 3pm to 3.30pm or by appointment with Marilyn Wassell, Professionals Lovegrove Realty Ltd, 277-1311, 027-212-7035.
