Anyone who tells you that the Auckland property market is overpriced and impossible is right. It's taken us almost three years to find a home we love as much as our current house. Now we are very focussed on selling ours!
The new house is in our current suburb, about five minutes drive from where we live now. It's an Edwardian villa, about twice the size of our wee 1880s cottage and fully renovated. It's painted in a crisp white colour throughout; a real change from our current soft beiges. Here are a few pictures:
It's too soon to think seriously about decor but we already have some ideas. Luckily, we like 80% of the house but plan to make some small changes. The bathrooms are not to our taste and there are a few other minor things we will change but on the whole, it's stunning. And, Paul finally gets his double garage!
And I get a walk-in wardrobe/dressing room! It's actually the smallest bedroom in the house but it's perfect for what I have planned. I'm already pinning ideas to my Pinterest board! This is a project I'll definitely keep you posted on. Clothes shopping may take a back seat for a while!
