Timeless, Warm, Single Level, Brick & Tile
Warm and dry with double glazing, spacious with a great layout - the owners say this is the best house they've ever lived in.
The home has a timeless design and features an open plan kitchen/living area, zoned air conditioning system with temperature controls in each room, plus log gas fire in lounge for ambiance. Double doors into the second lounge can be closed to make a private space, well separated from bedrooms (great if you have teenagers). A bedroom by the front door, is perfect for use as a home office with the ultrafast broadband connection in this room. Entertaining is a breeze under the archgola-type roof covering the paved patio leading off the living areas, and a second patio can be accessed off the master bedroom. The property is north facing with all-day sun in the master bedroom and living areas.
The owners absolutely love the double-glazing and would never buy another home without it. Piped natural gas fuels the infinity hot water system and cooking hobs and showerdomes installed over the showers provide a steam-free en-suite and bathroom.
The internal access double garage has generous storage in the roof cavity accessed via a convenient pull down ladder and there's additional off-street parking.
Tucked into the hill, the home is sheltered from the wind and in the fully fenced backyard a boardwalk takes you to an elevated shaded deck, with views of the adjacent green belt.
Situated on 627sqm of land the home is close to local amenities and travel routes. Walking distance to Bethlehem College, and a nearby extensive track system through bush reserve, duck ponds and wetlands is great for walking the dog.
This corner of Bethlehem has proved to be a quiet, friendly, safe neighbourhood. While Sterling Gate Drive is a wide connecting street, it has surprisingly little through traffic. Easy access to the Expressway allows for a six minute drive to the Tauranga CBD, with the joy of no traffic congestion. And in 15 minutes you can be lying in the sun on the world-class beach of Mount Maunganui.
Public transport stops a few metres from the house, along with fortnightly visits from the Tauranga Mobile Library bus. The nearby Bethlehem Town Centre has a comprehensive selection of shops, including Countdown, Kmart, Smith City and Palmers. What more could you ask for!
