Bright modern home in lovely gardens with great indoor/outdoor flow. The kitchen doors fold right back to give easy access to the deck and the garden.
Has everything you need for a relaxing holiday and a chance to explore north island. Sit outside in the garden in the shade of the tree ferns and just enjoy the natural setting.
If you like to cook the modern kitchen is well equipped but in the summer months the bbq hardly ever rests. We have all the usual mod cons, satellite tv, home office with broadband etc and for the kids xbox 360. The house also has a home ventilation system which helps keep the house cooler at night in the summer and warmer in the winter.

Please be aware that as we live up in the ranges there is very little cell phone coverage, but we have a land line.
We are up in the Waitakeri Ranges among the amazing huge tree ferns. There are lots of lovely walks with absolutely stunning views of the ranges and across the Manukau Harbour. The nearest beach is about 15 mins away by car (very safe for small children). There are a number of famous surfer beaches further afield such a Piha and Bethells which are worth the longer drive. Very exciting but not for the tame or the very young.
Its 10 mins by car into pretty Titirangi village which is considered a pretty hip place and has great coffee shops, eating places and bars. There is a great market every other week and some interesting shops to browse in. For those who like to shop Auckland City is around 40 mins by car. Take a drive over the harbour bridge!
You will have to opportunity to see birds and wildlife that is unique to New Zealand. The drive to the house is genuinely spectacular with glimpses of the sea on one side and the stunning bush views on the other.
My Family have lived here just over a year with our 2 boys and Levi our cat.
We are both nurses and work in South Auckland. We moved to New Zealand from the UK 2 years ago and think its just beautiful.
I love to cook and enjoy the kitchen. The garden is my husbands passion and he is just getting used to the differences in seasons and planting and planning what he wants to do with the garden.
We enjoy travelling and have been spending our holiday time exploring north island.
