One of the Best Bungalows in Auckland

This old but awesome bungalow has views of the Sky Tower and Castor Bay so it’s no wonder the owners simply had to have it.  They knew it would require major renovations to make it a perfect fit for their family and they were all-in to make improvements.  This super busy family has three boys […]

Very Cool Villa in Sandringham
