If ever a unit suited a downsizer or city commuter looking for a great base in the village, this is it. Part of a boutique development with fine kerbside appeal, the home is beautifully presented and, while compact, has a surprisingly large kitchen as a trump card.

Village life is right on the doorstep, with supermarkets, medical services, cafes and restaurants all within a casual saunter. And a weekend brekkie and good coffee at 3 Little Pigs, or a glass of wine and a hit of Thai food at My Thai Bar & Restaurant are five-minute walks down the road.

Entry is to a foyer with a study desk tucked to the side, and straight ahead comes the tiled kitchen-meals space. Running alongside this is a living room, carpeted in the softest green which matches the wall paint; a split-system in here tames the vagaries of Gisborne seasons.

The kitchen, streamlined and classic, has an abundance of white cabinetry including a french-door cupboard pantry, and charcoal benches providing heaps of preparation space, as well as a stainless-steel underbench oven and electric cooktop.

A clever cupboard laundry is at one end of the kitchen.

Two good-sized bedrooms, each with built-in robes, are carpeted in the same soft-green and have slim-line venetians on windows. One bedroom has a stylish display shelf running atop the window, while the main has an en suite. The main bathroom has a timber vanity unit.

A glass slider from the living room opens to an elevated deck, with steps down to a low-maintenance courtyard with simple landscaping.

The property would also likely attract investors and small families. It has a carport and the station is a five-minute drive away and Gisborne Primary School is four by foot.
