Solid Concrete Block Townhouse with views to die for!
The owners have loved living here in this close knit community but have now decided that Waiheke is calling and have purchased their next home. Built from quality materials in 2004 this expansive home has all the feature finishing’s you would expect of a relatively new build in the salubrious suburb of Parnell. All your toys will fit easily into the oversized triple garage with additional shelving and lock up storage unit to boot! If you’re a family with teens then may I suggest they are going to love the upper level as their amazing gaming and play centre or maybe you will keep that for yourself as a gym or bedroom suite & study, you really are spoilt for choice, space and storage! A $2 Hop into the city and an $8 Uber return shows just how close you are to visit the latest comedy show at the Classic. I personally would be wondering down to the Parnell chocolate boutique on a regular basis but hey, each to their own! What is obvious here is that you can lead the dream lifestyle, with amazing views, peace and quiet, and low maintenance, and close to everything Auckland offers via the enchanting suburb of Parnell.
We invite you to visit our open home, Saturday & Sunday 2.30-3.00pm

As Auckland City corporates move on up to flash new glass high-rise towers nearer the waterfront, their dated, cast-off offices are being gratefully snapped up by people wanting to make them their homes.
A growing number of city-fringe office blocks are being converted for new lives as luxury apartments.
The conversions include the former Baycorp headquarters in Hopetoun St – a late 1970s building – converted into 91 apartments, and the former Telecom House nearby, which has been increased from 15 to 18 storeys and has a penthouse which sold for nearly $6 million.
Improving values for city apartments since 2011 were giving developers confidence to take on new large-scale products – both new builds and conversions, said Bayleys research manager Ian Little.
More than 2500 new apartments would be coming on to the metropolitan market in the next two years in a dozen projects.
However, projects could not come on stream soon enough to meet the growing demand for inner-city living, with some not likely to be ready until 2017.
The trend to turn inner-city B and C Grade office blocks into freehold apartments was led by Tawera Group’s David Mahoney in 2012.
In the former Becca Carter office at 132 Vincent St, the company created 62 apartments over six levels and their quick sellout inspired the move to convert bigger buildings to the successful Hopetoun and Hereford Residences.
“The advantage of conversions is being able to take potential buyers to the exact spot to show them what their views will be like,” said Mr Mahoney. “From a construction point of view, a conversion is faster. To rebuild the Telecom building (now named the Hereford Residences) it would take three years and we did the conversion in half the time.
“I feel apartments are still undervalued compared with housing, so there is good growth in the apartment market.
“We are selling the lifestyle – being handy to Ponsonby and being able to lock up and leave but the benefit of a bigger-size apartment than some around.”
This is a clean slate – our vendors have booked their flights and are looking forward to a family white Christmas. The home is a testament to well thought-out spaces for all your different needs, the everyday family living is fully catered for with 5 double bedrooms & the option of private au pair quarters when required. If entertaining is high up on your priorities then you will revel in the highly spec’d kitchen flowing seamlessly out to the courtyard that is wrapped with fruit trees which in turn creates a wonderful calming privacy. Make no mistake our owners will be sad to say goodbye to a home that they built themselves for modern day living, it is now your turn to take advantage of the large wrap around decks, sea views and create your own family history. Separate access can be granted if a work from home option suits, we have a wine cellar, workshop and plenty of storage over all 3 levels. Time to make a statement and move to Auckland’s most desirable suburb, then don’t worry about any previous pricing that you may have heard – our vendors are already packed and want action on or before auction night.
