Somewhere with a unique setting that can’t be found anywhere else in Auckland? Look no further. Sitting proud on an acre (4806m2) of secluded flat land in Whenuapai, 90D Waimarie Road is the type of country estate that’s is becoming an increasingly rare find. In age of in-fill housing this property harks back to the good old days of family homesteads when there was room for even the largest extended family. There’s room enough here in the park-like grounds to satisfy keen entertainers; for the kids to roam free and enjoy adventures in a safe setting; and there’s even space left over for the pets and chooks. An abundance of exotic palms, citrus and stone fruit trees just add to the Newowners could landbank it and realise the capital gain, look at the possibility of subdividing at a later date, add a pool, or a tennis court, or both. appeal and there’s enough parking for even the biggest gathering with plenty of room left over to store the summer toys. Everyone knows that first impressions count, and the moment this home comes into view after you travel down the long tree-lined driveway it starts to impress. The European-inspired architecture and solid masonry build give the home a solid feel. Cedar joinery and high quality materials are the hallmark throughout. Adding to the already sizeable appeal of this property is that you are actually getting two homes in one. The floor plan has been designed to accommodate a two bedroom, fully self contained home which takes up about half of the ground floor. The rest of the ground floor and the whole of the first floor is a spearate four bedroom family home. That means you are getting two kitchens, two living spaces, six bedrooms, a study, three bathrooms, four toilets and two laundries. The obvious advantage of this is to allow for grandpraents or other extended family to occupy the two bedroom home, or perhaps for this area to be rented out to supplement the mortgage. A separate entrance and a lockable door linking the two dwellings gives this option. The home’s interior features many unusual touches such as the wooden ‘paving stone’ style floors in the living areas, curved cabinetry in the kitchen and a round window in the upstairs master bedroom. While this home already has huge appeal, it also offers enormous potential. New owners could land-bank it and realise the capital gain, look at the possibility of subdividing at a later date, add a pool, or a tennis court, or both. Location wise, the home sits close to the friendly Whenuapai Village and to a brand new school. It is also on the perimeter of the Whenuai Airforce Base – an added bonus for anyone with an interest in aviation. 90D Waimarie Road is going to auction onsite at 7pm on Thursday January 28 (unless sold prior).
