Western Homes : January 31st 2013
2 Thursday, January 31, 2013 Western Homes Immerse yourself in a serene sanctuary Grand entrance: Right - the inviting hall is opulent in mood yet functional in design. Formal living: Sitting room next to a fireplace and formal dining, both perfect spaces to entertain. Open plan: Kitchen, casual dining and living area is bright and comfortable. Peaceful spot: Relax and listen to native pigeons, tui, and the natural stream. Winding down this prop- erty's stunning driveway, flanked with native bush and rock walls, you'll immediately feel at ease; far-removed from the hustle and bustle of greater Auckland. Nestled in the gorgeous Titirangi countryside on 4425 square metres of land, this unique four bedroom home is a pleasure to visit. Immaculately presented, it is clear the owners have cher- ished this home, built in 1998 with family comfort and security in mind. Walk in the front door to a dramatic entrance hall, with magnificently high ceilings and polished wood floors. An elegant sitting room sits adjacent, with tall windows looking out to the vivid detail of fern trees. There is a large double garage with internal access to this area. Opposite there is a charm- ing study, referred to by the owners as the den''. It comes complete with a wide book- case custom-made for the room. This study overlooks the delightful outdoor patio area surrounded by bush and near a trickling natural stream -- the perfect spot to unwind and read a book, or follow the path down and discover nearby bush walks. You'd be forgiven for think- ing you'd been exported to somewhere sub-tropical. Stairs lead up to an elevated grassy area with clothes line. Discover the sun-drenched, open-plan kitchen, casual dining and living area. Exquisite contemporary appeal has been combined with classic features to create a comfortable, warm environ- ment. The kitchen is modern, with a granite bench top, modern appliances, walk-in pantry, and a separate laun- dry area. It leads out to an expansive wooden deck wrapping round side of the house, with a rich outlook to forest. The living area is homely and bright, and adjoins the tasteful formal dining area; the ideal space for entertain- ing guests. Upstairs, the sun pours into the master bedroom, with a balcony, walk in ward- robe, en suite and spa bath. Follow round to find another bathroom with bath tub and second separate com- mon toilet adjacent to the next spacious, double bed- room. There is a mezzanine area before the third and fourth double bedrooms, both with plenty of in-built cupboard space. Make the most of this fan- tastic opportunity.
