A colonial-style exterior full of picture postcard charm teams up with super-chic interiors to present a home of distinction. A significant upgrade has transformed this 1960s weatherboard house into a stylish modern star. It had good bones to start with and now it has heart and soul to match.

The tiled entranceway sets the tone with its eye-catching detailing that draws you indoors. The reconfigured kitchen has good functionality, enhanced space and gleaming granite bench tops and soft-close cabinetry. Living options include a dining and casual sitting area in an open plan layout with the kitchen. Family and friends can eat, chat and relax in this unified space. Feature doors off both the formal lounge and master bedroom open to a deck running the full length of the home. The upgraded bathroom is a refreshing space boasting a tiled shower, free-standing bath and a French-style vanity with a stone top. Retro meets contemporary in this home where integrity is retained through plaster detailing and numerous original features. With both water and heating on gas, there's a recently installed HRV system for comfort.

It sits on a flat freehold section with a paved entertainment courtyard and lawns for kids to run about and bounce on a trampoline. There is a double garage and attached shed. The home lies at the end of a sunny cul-de-sac in a quiet, family-friendly neighbourhood full of lifestyle convenience. The area is well served by public transport, schools and parks. Minogue Park, Lake Rotokaeo and Waterworld are close. Forest Lake is ideally located for easy commuting to the CBD, Te Rapa and The Base.
