Where we want to go
Description of our house
My 3 bdrm apartment is in a very desirable heritage suburb of Auckland, NZ. It is on the first floor of a block of 16 apartments with my own private gated/secure access to the street, as well as internal access in a lift. The apartment has been completely renovated less than a year ago. I have created a rooftop-style garden including some vertical planting but do not have a view. The location is just 1 minute from the waterfront of Auckland Harbour with ferries running every half hour to Downtown Auckland (takes 10 mins max). Other ferries also leave from the same terminal to Waiheke and Rangitoto Islands in the Hauraki Gulf. All necessary services and shops are very close,including the supermarket, post office, doctor, Churches and many cafes and restaurants. There are 4 beaches within walking distance, and several parks along the waterfront. It is a very beautiful area with a relaxed and friendly community.

My neighbours living within the apartment block are mostly retired couples and owners. A minority of apartments are rented. The building itself is 3 storied with a line of shops facing the waterfront on the ground floor and closed parking behind. The other two levels have 8 apartments on each floor. Only 3 have their own access to the street, and mine is one of them.
Something about ourselves
I am a retired College Teacher and widow of 5 years. My husband was a farmer on a beef and sheep farm in the Central North Island, about 3 hours drive South of Auckland. On his retirement we moved to Cambridge where we lived for some years, and I continued to teach in a private boys' boarding school in Hamilton.
