Western Homes : January 22nd 2015
Western Homes Thursday, January 22, 2015 29 Delightful decking: This deck gets all-day sun, just one of several outdoor living areas at 12 Wirihana Rd. Agood ‘in’ to a great street Wirihana Road is a contender for one of Titirangi’s ‘best kept secrets’. It’s a great family street, quiet and leafy, close to schools with the advantage of not being a main thoroughfare to anywhere. Here we have a perfect entry – a three-bedroom weatherboard home on a full section, with loads of decking to greatly extend its living areas. The property is a full 677 square metres, fully fenced with an expanse of lawn and no fewer than three decks plus a patio, so you can chase the sun around all day. (Perhaps with our recent temperatures we should be talking about chasing the shade!) The house is set well back from the street, creating a private haven. Beyond the stained glass front door is a good-sized kitchen, practically designed with plenty of food prep and storage space; dishwasher and waste disposer, ceramic hob and wall oven are included. The laundry is adjacent. Now proceed past the wraparound kitchen bench to a light, sunny and spacious living and dining area, complete with woodburner for cooler nights. Radiating out from this central living are two great deck spaces. The first is partially covered with trellised sides; at this time of year it presents the perfect climate and is probably utilised more than the lounge itself. There is also a spa deck out here (the spa is negotiable), so it’s obviously an allseasons living area. The second deck off the lounge is a big sunny area facing from norwest through north to nor-west – so it gets pretty much all-day sun. Right now it’s overlooking the most brilliant bougainvillea display imaginable. Downstairs, but not internally linked is a spacious rumpus area which would make a popular teen retreat. It has a patio outside, and there is quite a bit of under-house Space and flow: This living area is central to everything. Versatile living: This dining area accessing the covered deck could be a bedroom. Stylish kitchen: Tiles, good storage and work spaces in a sensible layout. and under-deck storage. A good-sized toolshed with a work bench is another bonus. Property prices here are on the rise (where aren’t they?) with houses in the street reputed to attract mid to high 600s – so the asking price of $579,000 has to be a terrific ‘in’ to Wirihana. Be quick to view. Phone Glover Real Estate Titirangi on 817 8066 for an appointment. Visit www. gloverrealesate.co.nz and find the property using reference number TG005605.
