    Homes the size of 238 Mangorei Road, in a prime location, are an absolute rarity in real estate.

    It was the size of the house - three levels, with six toilets, four bathrooms and three kitchens - coupled with its location on Mangorei Road, which instantly appealed to Andrew and Suzanne when they first viewed it 17 years ago. With seven children, plus a long-term boarder, they needed all of the living space which they could find!

    Now there is only Andrew and Suzanne, plus a 17-year-old son living in this much-loved family home.

    "It's simply far too big for just the three of us," explains Suzanne.

    Three Dutch gables extending from the roof line on each side of the upper floor, give the summit stone and concrete block home a distinctive character, which is further enhanced by a dark coloured, decramastic tiled roof. Built in the mid to late 1970's, the home is approximately 470 square metres, and offers a bushy outlook.

    A feature of this family home is a concrete balcony which encircles the building.

    The super-sized kitchen, with an island work bench, was designed and equipped to meet the needs of a large family. There is a matt- finish, stainless steel double oven and a matching king-sized refrigerator complete with ice-maker.

    "We put in a huge oven so that I could cater for the masses," explains Suzanne.

    Red (or more accurately termed, "pomegranate") cupboard doors seem to stretch from the floor to the ceiling and while adding contrast to the stainless steel appliances, also bring warmth to the room. There is a now much-used breakfast nook in one corner of the kitchen.

    "We have got down to eating at the breakfast nook at night because there are usually only two or three of us - Andrew, myself and our son. In earlier times there used to be up to 13 of us seated in the dining room," says Suzanne.

    An attractively appointed dining room extends from the kitchen, and adjacent the formal lounge which can also be accessed via the main foyer. A courtyard, complete with a water feature, extends from the lounge and dining areas.

    Two double bedrooms, including the master bedroom, plus a sewing room/nursery and the main bathroom are located on the main floor. The master bedroom has a fully tiled en-suite.

    A short flight of stairs lead to the upper level of the house, which also has its own access if required.The upper storey with its lounge and kitchen area has the potential to be completely self-contained and offers prospective buyers a range of options for their family.

    "On the ground floor our son has taken this area as his own and has adapted the rooms, including a games room, to cater for his visitors" says Suzanne. "There is also a full kitchen, complete with dishwasher and a separate bathroom."

    Two tandem garages, one of which is set up as a gymnasium, stand side-by-side. Two large wine cellars are accessed via the bottom floor.

    There is a dedicated indoor/outdoor living area nestled in a bush like setting. Strategically-placed coloured lights up-light the bush, while overhead, coloured fairy lights along the roof-line add a touch of magic. These are complemented by both recessed wall and floor lighting.

    "We love it out here," says Suzanne.

    "We've had barbecues out here the year round - it's such a pleasant area in which to relax and dine."

    Roz Rowe, who is marketing the property for TSB Realty, comments that this is one of the largest homes I have been in in New Plymouth. It will make an ideal home for a large family who not only want a great suburb but are looking for a handy location for schooling.

    Buyers from $725,000 are invited to view the property.
