Just a short walk to the train station for a city com- mute, local cafes and of course west coast parks and beaches, 6/31 Arawa Street is an immaculately maintained New Lynn property that is designed to delight. With its own attached car- port the house has been designed keeping in mind modern concepts of space and natural light, and incorp- orates features that today's buyers demand. Displaying a contemporary layout, the two-level home has unmatched indoor- outdoor flow. First up is a spacious open plan living area that opens out com- pletely via wall-to-wall bifolds. You are almost one with nature as the lounge flows on to a stunning Italian garden. Here under the grape vines there is a sheltered and pri- vate alfresco area, a fountain and plenty of space to play petanque or grow your herbs and veges. A relaxed environment by day, it takes on an upmarket ambience by night when you switch on the professionally installed lighting. The kitchen is sleek and modern -- breakfast bar, granite benchtop, butler's sink, modern appliances, soft downlights, designer pan- tries, gas cooking, cedar blinds and a laundry area. Underfloor heating adds a bit of luxury. The sleeping accommo- dation includes two double bedrooms upstairs. Both are well-lit and done up in warm tones, and their vaulted ceilings add to the element of space. There's another room here and the current owner is using it as a home office, but it could be a third bedroom if needed. They are served by a modern bathroom that has a heated mirror, frameless shower and underfloor heating. It isn't every day that you would come across a beauty like this. So make an offer and take her home. Open homes 1.00-1.30pm, Saturday and Sunday. For private viewing or more information call Linda Taylor of First National Glendene on 027 274 1879 or 280 3871.
