When two sisters - Newmarket locals - were looking for the perfect home for their busy lifestyles, they saw an opportunity in 15 Sarawia Street: three side-by-side units that required some hard work and their eye for design.
A year on and all three units are beautifully renovated, one for each of them and a spare. Now it's time for the surplus unit - Unit C/15 Sarawia Street - to welcome a new family to enjoy the fruits of their labour.
This modern three level, three bedroom home offers so much more than first meets the eye. The ground floor provides a spacious, open-plan kitchen, dining and living area, along with a guest powder room. Pull back the bi-folds on to your extremely private and welcoming courtyard, which adds even more space to your living over the summer months.
The first floor will be your private sanctuary with the master bedroom and ensuite. The ample wardrobe space might mean a shopping spree is required. On the same floor is a multi-use space that would suit either a second living or a study - or both. This spot captures the morning light beautifully and would be the perfect spot to curl up with a coffee on a Sunday morning.
The top floor offers two large double bedrooms and a second shared bathroom. Both bedrooms offering plenty of storage and the East-facing bedroom offer views over Newmarket Park, Remuera and beyond.
If schools are something you need to consider when looking for your new home, Sarawia is the answer, situated in a Double Grammar Zone.
If you enjoy time out of the city, then the ability to 'lock up and leave' is a must. This home offers the comfort of a standalone, without the maintenance.
This is the one you have been looking for.
