Escapism or Entertainment Mecca: your Choice

Quietly positioned behind a brick wall and big double garage, with internal access, is a home that comes as a complete surprise. It may appear understated and secretive from the road but once you are through the secure front door lies an exciting revelation.

Your choice will be to retreat to its large private grounds or invite a crowd over to party.

The owners have loved this home for 19 years. It has been a great place to raise 3 children and an entertainment mecca for friends. The pool, together with the spa and big north-facing deck, is the centre of attention. Bifolding doors connect the main open plan living and designer kitchen with a covered outside dining area, which, with its cafe style heater, can be enjoyed year round. A lush lawn stretching out beyond the deck is an ideal sports pitch. The 786m2 (more or less) grounds are fringed by banana plants and established trees and palms, which are lit at night, providing an ideal habitat for plentiful birdlife.

Within, the spacious bedrooms and a second living space provide generous space for the kids to grow.

The location is so convenient, close to the sports grounds and sea scouts at Coxs Bay,Herne Bay beaches, 2 quality tennis clubs, along with plenty of great cafes, bars and restaurants. Bayfield Primary is a short walk away and the property is in zone for Ponsonby Intermediate. Being on the outerlink bus route and One Zone fare, access is easy to the downtown and around the city. This family's children use the bus most days.

It all adds up to a secluded sheltered haven for the family that you can share with friends.....or not.

Agent Reviews

Mark & Leslie

From the outset, Daryl's focus was on ensuring that he presented our property well in the market, that we had as much information as he could provide to enable us to make good decisions about selling our home, and that he made the process as easy for us as he could. Throughout, he was highly professional, practical and realistic and achieved a fair balance between providing recommendations and giving us space to make our own decisions. We feel that he was considerate of our needs, marketed our property well, and worked hard on our behalf to achieve a very satisfactory result.

Greg & Alex- Freemans Bay

Dear Daryl, Thank you for your exceptional work on the recent sale of our property at the above address. We were both impressed with your highly professional approach throughout the marketing process. You actively sourced potential buyers from an extensive network and database, which proved invaluable for our sale process. We have experienced the sale process before and, in the past, have found it rather a negative experience, hearing potential market feedback after open homes. However, you kept it positive and yet realistic and surpassed our expectations on the sale price you found for us. We would not hesitate to recommend you as an agent to any interested vendors.
Daryl managed the marketing, auction and subsequent sale of my house while I had to make an unplanned and urgent trip to Europe. I was kept updated at all times with both informal and formal reports via different media, as he had promised, throughout the marketing phase. During the auction and post auction processes Daryl supported each option I had to consider with clear advice enabling me to come out of the process with no doubt that I made the right decision. I would not hesitate to ask Daryl to do the same again. Jane

"I'd like to thank you for your good work on selling our house and getting a price & deal we are very happy with. This is the eighth property I have sold over the years and you have been by far the most professional agent I have dealt with. I don't think you could have done any better. We felt we were informed right the way through. The fact that you were a straight talker was great too. So we are very happy clients and we'll definitely recommend you to anyone we know who is selling or buying." - Adam Ward and Rebecca Lloyd
