Marketed by Angela Saunders

This is what you've been dreaming of, a large affordable one bedroom apartment with a expansive rooftop garden. There is so much more than meets the eye in this amazing Grey Lynn home. In a coveted end position, it has great elevation and views, and the desirable east-to-west orientation ensures it captures morning and evening sun. Versatile and hard to find, its a home for a wide range of buyers. A perfect pied terre for those few week nights you spend in town, you can rent it out the remaining nights on AirBnB which will help with the mortgage. Built in the 1970's these older style buildings are unusually large for 1 bedroom homes at 81m2 and are great investment for those moving into the market and downsizing.

Recently refurbished throughout, the spacious, light-filled living downstairs opens right out to the real secret - the extra-large rear terrace/garden, great for entertaining. Instantly the ideas will flow, there are so many uses for this space. Those with a green thumb will no doubt be filled with plans, inspired by the beautiful array of plants and veges currently filling the area. Or lay some AstroTurf and enjoy a huge entertainment area or a petanque pitch for friends and family. Loads of choices.

The roomy kitchen has great storage for everything you'll need to whip up fabulous meals to enjoy with guests on the terrace. Upstairs, the generous bedroom has uninterrupted views across Grey Lynn and Ponsonby to the Sky Tower. A stunning bathroom is also on this level. There is a large stand up attic space with pull-down access to store anything you need.

In an exceptional location so handy to Grey Lynn shops, Countdown , Tiger Burger and Kokako are just a stroll away. Or wander up to Ponsonby Rd with so many of Auckland's best local cafes and restaurants you will be spoiled for choice. Easy access to public transport, Grey Lynn Park and motorways is a bonus and one covered car park completes the picture. This affordable starter is a winner on so many levels you cant afford to miss, so come along and view this weekend!
