Where we want to go
Description of our house
Our home is a restored villa in a country setting. It has a beautiful garden with views over the Manukau Harbour and looking northwards over green farmland to Auckland city. The house has 3 large double bedrooms,a family bathroom plus a modern ensuite off the master bedroom. There is also a sofa bed in the study/computer room. The modern kitchen leads into a large family room with dining table for 8 and a wood burner fire. Off the family room is the lounge area that has another dining table for more formal occasions. Both family room and lounge have TV sets. Our house is surrounded by decks which lead to a patio and barbecue area and a pond where our turtle lives. We love the quiet, the bird life and the proximity to the city.
