Project overview

Located on Kelwyn Road in Kelston, these Townhouses are only a short drive to access the North Western Motorway and are perfectly positioned for trains, buses and other motorway connections and are walking distance to local shops, cafes and other amenities. It is with no doubt that finding new homes at an affordable price point is only going to get increasingly harder as Auckland City’s population grows.

The open plan nature of the kitchen, living and dining provides everything you need for comfortable living. Our extremely functional kitchen will impress, plus there is a separate laundry with storage space under the stairs. Upstairs are either 1 or 2 full size bedroom(s), which include large built-in wardrobes. Also upstairs is a full size bathroom. Outside is your own low maintenance, private courtyard with ample space for a barbecue, table and chairs. The outdoor area also includes a storage shed along with an outdoor power supply.


Auckland home buyers need to get in quick - city house prices could leap to record highs by this time next year, one property pundit predicts. Infometrics economist Paul Barkle says that while Auckland house prices have stagnated for close to two years they are set for an almost 10 per cent jump next year followed by sustained increases through to mid-2022. Behind the forecast price rise is an acute shortage of houses. By Barkle’s estimate the city needs at least 45,000 more homes. But the news is not so rosy for homeowners outside the Super City, with national prices poised to ease next year from current record highs.

“By the end of next year we expect house prices in Auckland to be 9 per cent higher than in December 2018 compared to a slight decline in national prices of roughly 1 per cent over the same period,” Barkle said. Should Barkle’s forecast play out, it would push Auckland property values to new highs. Last month, the city’s median price reached $867,000 - or 3.7 per cent below the record price of $900,000 set in March 2017, according to the Real Estate Institute of NZ.
