392 Ruahine Street - Home with a View
392 Ruahine Street is situated in the heart of Hokowhitu and is in the school zone for PNGH & PNBH. Also to enjoy are the walking and biking tracks along the Manawatu River, the Esplanade, sports fields and the Lido Complex.
Here is your classic iconic sixties home, featuring traditional weatherboard cladding and an iron roof, coupled with large windows that let in lots of light and sunshine. A white picket fence at the front of the section completes the picture. Inside you will find a large lounge opening onto a wooden deck, a kitchen/dining room, four bedrooms, two bathrooms and a rumpus/office room downstairs.
Several modern upgrades have taken place. The house has been fully insulated: walls, ceiling and floor. At the heart of the home is the fabulous modern kitchen, lovingly designed by the current owner. A classic design with a U-shape layout, with white tiles, navy cupboards, a large six-hob gas burner and new appliances - a cook's delight. The icing on the cake is the panoramic view of the suburb from the kitchen window, looking out across the trees to the ranges in the distance. Rimu doors and polished rimu floors in the kitchen are sixties features that have been retained. The lounge has a wood burner and there are two gas heaters in the house. There is an HRV system throughout the house, surround sounds in the lounge and an alarm with inbuilt smoke detectors. The windows have been upgraded to aluminium joinery.
No waiting in the morning to use the bathroom as there is a family bathroom with a bath and shower, plus a second bathroom with a shower and toilet. A delightful bonus is a large room downstairs that has the potential for many different uses: a rumpus room, studio or perhaps a home office?
The current family have enjoyed many happy gatherings in the large backyard. There is space here for the family to gather together and play cricket, tennis, or just let the kids run around while you fire up the barbeque.
