Type: House

This pristine home has just come on the market on the corner of Suva and Lau Street. In Hawaiian, Lau simply means leaf, and there is no shortage of those with the parkland and wetlands close by.

Boasting three bedrooms and three bathrooms with open-plan living in the front east-facing lounge/dining/kitchen area. The plan was well-designed, with little interruption from the conversation.

This modest home’s surprise is the third bedroom, which has a mini kitchen and ensuite. It has a separate entry from a raised side deck, which is perfect for sleepovers or maybe an added income stream as a BnB. Enhance the entry deck to the BnB with a small triangular shade sail. Set two quirky sunchairs and a small table on the deck for (use your imagination) and have a water feature plumbed in. It all adds to the ambience and may encourage return customers.

Imagine installing a fully screened outdoor entertainment area toward the bottom of the property. Sit on the raised deck, completely protected from the nibbly summer insects, and enjoy the serenity of almost total silence (except for the occasional passing car coming home from shopping at the IGA.) All facilities, including emergency services, are approx. 3 km away.

A gate at the back of the house leads to a pathway that takes guests directly to the open lawn, where they can enjoy the enticing covered BBQ without interrupting their hosts. Or maybe the Hostess with the Mostess could invite their guests to partake in a beverage. Our climate is sub-tropical: summer (install a ceiling fan), winter (strike up the firepit.) There is no excuse not to party. You live in paradise, so why not embrace it?

Jackson Oval is just up the road and a great place to throw a ball for the kids or the dog (if he’ll bring it back). A dedicated Heli-Pad is there for the safety of “Russelites” Have you ever thought about playing lawn bowls? It’s harder than it looks, but it’s so much fun. The island bowling club is only a few blocks away, within easy walking distance, no need to drive. the Club has a full bar and restaurant, they are also the destination for island Fishing and Poker clubs.

At present, there is no solar, but with a 10wt power kit and battery, you may never have another power bill. Plenty of roofing material is available to maximise your solar intake.

Other Features:

  • Ceiling fans throughout.
  • Tiles and carpeted throughout.
  • D/W double pantry and room for a four-door French Fridge in the kitchen.
  • Laundry is a shared space for BnB.
  • Tidy established lawn and garden.
  • Two car carport.
  • Concrete driveway.
  • Lovely welcoming wide timber porch (with ceiling fan) facing east.
  • The builder has cleverly taken advantage of this 658m2 block.
  • The home is on 50%, and the garden/lawn (potential entertainment section is the balance.) covers the remaining area.
  • In a peaceful, private area of town. Partly fenced.

David Attenborough’s Documentary Seven Worlds One Planet was an eye-opener, especially his reference to the calm and tranquil energy of Suva. You can experience that feeling personally from 10 Suva Road, Russell Island. The conversation lands directly opposite and to the rear of your block, which is and will always remain a safe sanctuary for the island’s fauna and flora.
