I arrived to late, but it was a first for me discovering the Hobsonville Markets after a little drive around to check out the development going on there.
I’ve gotta say, its a really lovely spot and I can see why people would buy there, but unfortunately the houses are squashed in with sites of around 235sqm with virtually no gardens. I think if you want low maintenance, well you’ll get it there, nice modern homes, little courtyards, lovely new primary and high school…probably a very smart place to invest for future equity growth.
The farmers market is set in the old RAF barracks, now mainly derelict, soon making way for development, there are still signs of the previous life it had especially when we passed the sign saying ‘Stop – troop movement’. In which we saw one solitary troop 1 minute later followed by a bunch of gormless looking trainees learning the haka and very badly by the looks of it.
I’m aiming to go back to the markets to try them out one weekend when the weather is a tad warmer.
On another note the house is pretty much finished inside….yippeeee, the painters are attempting to work on the outside (well once it stops raining)….
This weekend, I’ll post some picts up of the inside for you to see. I’m loving my massive kitchen and am (much to my husbands dismay), planning the next stage…..extending the second story….but thats another day, and another plan and another blog…..
