Key ingredients:

It really helped to have a realistic price on this property (BEO $560k) which attracted an impressive amount of interest, particularly from first home buyers. The owners did a wonderful job presenting their home at its best, even with 2 small children and a dog in the house. Viewings were never an issue during the week and we were also fortunate to have great weather for each of our weekend viewings.

LIM and builders report were provided up front along with floor plans, drone shots (showing off the privacy aspect) and a 3D virtual walkthrough, making it easy for buyers to complete their due diligence.

A peaceful haven for the current loving family, they are sad to say goodbye to 144 Parkvale Road but new adventures await. A short stroll up brings you to an elevated, west facing oasis that gets bathed in afternoon sun. Your own private retreat after a hard day’s work. The owners have made comment that the abundance of native birds in the private rear garden have been an absolute delight over the years.

Of a mid-century vintage, this three-bedroom (master flowing to porch) home has the best of both worlds with a quality, solid build combined with a large quantity of work. This work being completed in the last 6-7 years the current owners have been in residence. Including, but not limited to, roof replacement, insulation installation, a bathroom renovation, upgrade to mains hot water, some double glazing of windows, new garden shed and landscaping.

A generous kitchen with ample storage including a walk-in pantry. Well located with excellent access to the dining and living but also enough separation that the designated chef with a busy kitchen can keep it tucked away from guests. A heat pump in the dining/living area is bound to keep you warm during the colder Wellington winter nights. Excellent storage throughout including a huge cupboard at the end of the hallway and double sliding wardrobes in the master bedroom.

With 1,045 sqm of land, you really are purchasing a substantial slice of the Karori/Wellington property market. They most definitely aren’t making any more! A well-landscaped bbq area is combined with land that has further garden development potential. Or just leave as is, a great place for the children to explore.

Single garage at road level. Only a walk to central Karori and bus stops on Karori Road.
