What are you waiting for, renters can be homeowners!

Featuring the permanence of split stone construction and the convenience of a central address, this updated 1960’s two-bedroom property checks the quintessential investment and first home buying boxes.

Making an attractive opening impression, the updated interior issues a statement in modern design and classic clean lines. The floor plan itself features an open plan living area while offering a superbly sized layout throughout for daily routines. Two large bedrooms share the contemporary bathroom and separate toilet, while the large detached garage provides practical storage for a vehicle or 2. Or perhaps the possibility of walling off an office room area depending on your garage usage requirements.

The grounds are low maintenance and serve up ample legroom for young children and pets, while the rear deck and front patio ideally bask in the afternoon sun, providing chill out zones.

Accessed via its own driveway this property enjoys a level of privacy, but is encircled by lifestyle conveniences, with easy access to Southwell School, in zone for Hamilton Boys & Girls High Schools, Peachgrove Intermediate, Marion Catholic and Hamilton East. Not forgetting a short stroll to local cafes, amenities, Claudeland’s Event Centre and public transport.

High interest is expected from both first home buyers and those looking to pump up their property portfolio. Call Cary our exclusive More-Re Hamilton agent for more information or to arrange a viewing. 📲 021 139-4000

OUR GO DRY JULY PROGRAM (2022) IS ALMOST DONE
The GO DRY JULY program is supported by people who accept the challenge of going without alcohol for the month of July, hence the name GO DRY JULY.
In recognition of their abstinence the participants solicit donations from family, friends, colleagues, business houses, and organisations in return for their commitment (and donations) to the fundraising program.

We are so close to the finish line for our GO DRY JULY, but there is still time to encourage more financial support.

Thanks to all of the very kind people that have supported us with their donations. If you are one of those people, you have our gratitude and respect.

Currently, we have raised $1200, but with further support we would like to reach the sum of $1800. The money is so vital for the work we undertake getting the message out to all the men of New Zealand on the subject of prostate cancer.

The Prostate Cancer Foundation relies on these funds along with sponsorship, business donations, bequests from estates, and any other funding opportunity we can sight.

Any donation amount is appreciated and will help make a difference to the lives of people affected by prostate cancer in practical and tangible ways.

All donations will be recognised and those over $5.00 will receive a receipt for tax purposes, just click one the links below, you choose.
