3BR townhouse in a great location – walk to almost everything

Auckland Sky Tower views and a great central location in Mt Eden.

A car is optional - unusual for Auckland living – although the apartment does come with secure dedicated parking. It’s a 3km walk to the University of Auckland or Auckland University of Technology. Alternatively, take a frequent bus with an option of two direct bus routes with a travel time of 10 min to UoA and AUT downtown campuses.

Other nearby walkable amenities include:
- Eden Quarter in 10 min. This major commercial area includes a large grocery store, pharmacy, wine store, restaurants/cafes galore, hairdressers, hardware store and more.
- Dominion Road starts one block from our house and is home to some of the best and reasonably priced ethnic eats in Auckland. A large Asian grocery store is one block from our house and the most famous dumpling and noodle restaurant in Auckland is two blocks away.
- 5 playgrounds in a 1km walking radius
- Excellent school zone: Mt Eden Normal Primary, Kowhai Intermediate School and Mount Albert Grammar School (high school).
- Walk in 10 min to Kingsland, where you’ll find Eden Park (where the All Blacks rugby team plays), lots of fun restaurants, bars and cafes, and direct trains to Britomart.
- 1.2km to the base of the wonderful Mt Eden/Maungawhau, a volcanic cone, with walking/jogging trails up to a beautiful view over downtown Auckland and the surrounding seas.

The 3-bedroom, 2-bathroom apartment is over three levels:
- Lower level: entrance, small double bedroom, family bathroom with shower over bath, and bedroom furnished with a bunk bed with small patio. Washing machine and dryer.
- Main level: open plan living and kitchen with fridge, stove, oven, dishwasher. Balcony
- Top level: master bedroom with ensuite bathroom with shower. Balcony.

The house is fully furnished, and rent includes unlimited wi-fi, and all utilities including electricity and water costs.

It’s a low maintenance home so perfect for visiting scholars who wish to lock up and leave for weekends or weeks to explore the beautiful beaches and regions of New Zealand.

We intend to use the dressing room on the top level between the bathroom and master bedroom, or one of the bedrooms, as storage for our personal items. If this is not acceptable to the renter we can arrange external storage but this will be an additional cost.

We have a full size electric piano which you’re welcome to use or, if you don’t play, we’ll move out of your space. We can loan toys, games and bikes etc if you are coming with little people of a similar size to ours.

Our not-so-beautiful family car is also negotiable with this rental and available for a small additional cost.

Please ask if any questions.
