Easy living house with expansive views and a smoochey cat

We live in a quiet and friendly neighbourhood down a drive. The house itself is 20 years old but is well cared for – we are the only owners so far. The house is on 2 levels with 2 Queen sized bedrooms downstairs. Upstairs is the lounge/ dining room and kitchen open plan area with fabulous views. Pictures and artifacts in the house reflect our travels and our love of Nepal and the Sherpa people. The house doubles as our office so there are some office facilities available by negotiation. There is a double garage and a car may be available by negotiation. My brother lives next door so is handy to ask questions. It is a no smoking, vaping, drug or party property.

The views to Mt Wellington and Waiatarua Reserve, a wetland and dog off the leash area; give the house the feeling of spaciousness as well as being great places to walk.

We are 25mins walk (or a 5 minute drive) to the nearest local shopping centres where most of your needs can be met. We have a choice of supermarkets and good coffee places. You have a choice of local eateries in the area - you can walk or drive to them. We are 20 minutes’ drive from the nearest beach – we have a choice of three but we prefer St Heliers.

We are 10 mins walk to the nearest bus (there are two options) these go directly into town and the University of Auckland or Auckland University of Technology. These buses also go through major shopping centres such as Remuera, Parnell and Newmarket en route. If you need a train to go south or west the bus will take you there for example to go south to the Manukau Institute of Technology. Local railway stations mean you can take the train into the CBD.

We share Pushok the cat with our neighbour but he prefers to spend time at our house and be fed!!! We do not have a cat door but he is good at letting us know when he wants to come in and go out. If you need to go away for a few nights back up is at hand with our neighbour. No additional pets are allowed. We form a watchful and caring neighbour watch group with our neighbours and where possible arrange to introduce them to any one staying in the house.

We have gardeners to do the basics monthly and cleaners once a fortnight. These costs are included in the rental price.
