Beautiful modern 3 bedroom house with a large garden – near St Heliers Beach

The House

The open concept kitchen and sunny dining room roll into a beautiful deck and private, low-maintenance backyard. On the other side of the house, a family/TV room with a deck overseeing the front of the house. The kitchen and dining room are sunny throughout the day and are perfect for both a lazy winter day and a spectacular summer day with the main windows open. The family room gets great morning sun and the front deck is perfect for cool shade in the summer afternoon. The house is fully furnished and clutter free. The family sized kitchen has a natural gas oven/stove, fridge, and dishwasher. There are three bedrooms, a main bathroom that includes both a shower and a separate bath, as well as an additional toilet. The large master bedroom includes a queen bed, two dresser drawers, and two closets. The second bedroom is currently shared by two kids, with two separate beds. The third bedroom is currently used as a spare bedroom with a single bed that opens to a full double bed. The house includes a washing machine and a dryer. There is air conditioning in the living areas and local heaters in the bedrooms. Furniture and room arrangements are flexible.

The beautiful and private garden will be maintained by a gardener at our expense. Beautiful trees—olives, lemon, loquat, and feijoa—make sure that while sitting outside you see nothing but green. Your morning coffee never felt so serene right in the heart of the city.

The Neighbourhood

Our house is located in a wonderful, family friendly neighbourhood. Driving to the CBD takes about 25 minutes in the morning, and there is a bus stop 100m away from our front door which will take you straight into town even faster. There is a grocery, a Thai restaurant, and a fish-and-chips shop 5 minutes away on Riddell road. St Heliers bay—with its shops, restaurants and cafes—is a 15-minute walk or a quick drive. Equally close are some amazing reserves—including Tahuna Torea, Dingle Dell, Churchill Park, and Karaka Bay. The house is zoned for Churchill Park Primary and Glendowie College.

We are going on sabbatical for 1 full year starting January 2020. We are hoping to find a couple or family for the full time.
