Home of the week – 469 Racecourse Rd, Hargest


IF living in a rural setting with all the convenience of a city dwelling sounds like your dream, then this is the home for you.

This home offers an ideal family layout with bedrooms at one end of the house, away from the living areas.

Walking under the covered porch, through the sliding doors, you enter a spacious living area.

There is room for everyone here with the ability to configure your furniture any way you please.

Through an archway you come to the open-plan kitchen and dining space.

In the kitchen there is plenty of storage with beautifully updated cabinetry, bench and splashback, a dishwasher, wall oven and ceramic-top stove.

The dining room is also roomy and this overall space makes a great environment for entertaining with everyone able to be in the same space.

Down the hallway there is internal access to the single-car, automatic-door garage, making it really convenient for getting the groceries inside in inclement weather.

laundry with nearby access to the back door, complete with another covered area, making it easy for hanging out the washing.

Further along the hallway, past the large linen cupboard, are three double bedrooms, all with fitted wardrobes.

The separate toilet is right beside the bathroom which has also recently been modernised to include a deep bath, shower cubicle, vanity and heated towel rail.

The magic continues outside the home, where an enormous deck wraps around the north and east sides of the home, meaning there are plenty of places to relax and entertain with room to follow the sun.

This area is incredibly private and a great escape outdoors when the sun is shining.

Also out the back, with views to the wide open pastures, is a garden shed to house all the tools and lawn mower.

This entertainers’ dream is just a stone’s throw from James Hargest College and the Waihopai walkway and will be auctioned on August 6, unless sold prior.

Price: To be sold at auction, August 6 (unless sold prior)
