About our home

Our modern 12 year old home in Torbay is within walking distance to Long Bay Regional park and has good swimming at the Long Bay and Torbay. Our home is warm and convenient. The main bedroom (with ensuite), lounge/dining, kitchen, study and bathroom are upstairs and look out to Rangitoto Island and Auckland harbour. Downstairs there are 2 bedrooms, bathroom, toilet and another kitchen/lounge which has a TV and our classical music collection. The garage adjoins the house. We have a small fruit and vegetable garden.


More about us

  1. We are Lew and Helen who are now both retired as we are in our 70s. Helen was a Child Health Nurse and Lew a Public Health Engineer (Civil Engineer) working in several countries around the world. We have done a house exchange in Cyprus which worked very well. We have travelled extensively, particularly as our "children" and grandchildren now live in Clermont-Ferrand (France), Perth and Brisbane.
    We belong to the croquet club at Takapuna, belong to U3A and also the local Probus club so are well involved in our community.
