T.S. Elliot once said, home is where one starts from, that it is our jump point for life. 219 Manukau Road is just such a home. The property sits on 835m2 with entrances off both Manukau Road and Epsom Avenue. Having been built in the 1920's the home has a warm and charming character about it, and with four upstairs bedrooms, three doubles and one single, it is perfect for a young family, especially given its position in the double Grammar zone. The current owners have begun alterations on the house, having recently renovated the kitchen and the downstairs bathroom, however with the upstairs, and part of the downstairs, still untouched, there are endless possibilities for the new owners. The living room has the option for true relaxation in sun kissed window seats, making them the perfect position for a quite cup of tea or a hide-away to read a book. The home also offers a harmonious indoor/outdoor flow through French doors onto an outdoor entertaining area with built in fireplace and BBQ, making it perfect for drinks with friends, intimate dinners or family occasions, be it a sunny summers day, or under a clear starry night. The home also boasts beautiful stonewalls expertly built giving the property a true sense of privacy and isolation, making it the perfect family retreat. This privacy, coupled with the beautiful lawn makes it a truly wonderful opportunity for families with young children, especially given the ample room for additions such as swings, playhouses or a swimming pool if necessary. On top of its position in the double Grammar zone, the home is also close enough to Kohia Terrace Primary School for children to walk, and sits minutes away from the bustling shopping centre of Newmarket and Mt Eden Village, with all the shops, restaurants, cafes and businesses it has to offer. The property at 219 Manukau Road is a young family's dream, with all the development opportunities it has to offer and its close proximity to schools and shops, coupled with its beautiful isolation behind stone walls, this property truly is a one-in-a-million and it would be criminal to pass it by.
