Southern Homes : June 14th 2012
Southern Homes Thursday, June 14, 2012 11 4 Newly renovated: 13 Leatham Crescent offers affordable entry into a good locality. Top location that won't break the bank Sun trap: Like this conservatory, the rest of house is sunny too. Like new: The renovated kitchen has lots of space. Safe location: The property is fully fenced and bordered by farmland. Families looking at an affordable home in a desir- able neighbourhood needn't despair that all the good deals are taken. They will see the immense potential in this completely refurbished home set on a substantial section in one of Papakura's most sought after neighbourhoods. Set on 741 square metres in a lovely cul-de-sac, 13 Leatham Crescent is one of those unexpected finds where everything comes together fortuitously. The most com- pelling reason is loads of space for extended family accommodation. Another good hint of the desirability of the location is that most of your neighbours are original owners. There's a lot about the street that makes people want to stay. First up, instead of properties blocking your view, the end of the cul- de-sac opens out to the hills in the distance, allowing plenty of natural light to fil- ter into your home. Secondly, the back of the section is bordered by farmland, creating an extremely quiet and rural ambience. Most of the neigh- bourhood children are known to jump over the fence and play amidst the tall grass, with nary a protest from the farm owners. The home is just a few minutes to the motorway as well as the shopping and entertainment destinations of central Papakura. Plus you are zoned for Opaheke Pri- mary and Rosehill College. The home which faces directly north is totally refurbished with new carpets, lino, insulation, and brand new light fixtures. The property is also extremely low maintenance. The landscaped gardens in front lead up to a spacious main lounge with access to an unexpectedly large conserva- tory. The sleeping accommo- dation comprises three bedrooms, including the mas- ter with ranchslider access to the conservatory. They are served by a modern bath- room. The kitchen has been renovated as well. The bonus is a big rumpus out back and your teens are certain to make a grab for it. Plus, there's a large stand- alone garage with plenty of storage space and a separate tool shed here. If you have been waiting for a break into the real estate market, this is the right opportunity because it's not every day you are offered such a property, especially one that won't place undue stress on your finances. The property will be sold via auction at 5pm, June 21, 2012 onsite. Viewing at open homes 1-1.45pm, Saturdays and Sundays or by appoint- ment.
