In addition, you'll discover a delightful selection of parks and reserves, providing plenty of opportunities for outdoor enjoyment. Akarana Golf Club is merely a leisurely 5-minute stroll away. With regular AT bus networks running between Roskill South, Dominion Road, Sandringham, Mount Eden, Kingsland and the city centre make it super easy to get around.

And when it comes to daily essentials and dining options, you're in luck – there's a variety of stores, including New World and The Warehouse, as well as an array of cafes and restaurants, all conveniently located just 1km from the development.

All in all, 12 Balfron Avenue offers an exceptionally convenient and highly sought-after locale, thanks to its proximity to parks, amenities, and the bustling CBD. It's a place where you can truly enjoy the best of what Auckland has to offer.

3 Spacious Bedrooms

All of the bedrooms will comfortably fit a queen bed with room to spare. Beautifully lit to make the best use of New Zealand's sunshine renters will be delighted with the space afforded to them!

1.5/2 Bathrooms

With two differing floorplans, you have options for either 1.5 or two bathrooms. Designed with simplicity, elegance and efficiency, Neilston Homes also include a grey-water system to make sure renters are getting value for their money and are helping keep New Zealand clean.

Off-street Carpark

With parking in the city getting harder and more expensive, renters will get the added bonus of having a guaranteed spot only metres from their door!

Open Plan Living

Spacious, open plan living flows effortlessly between the lounge and kitchen. Large windows ensure the home is draped in light throughout the day, and the new kitchen ensures premium access to facilities.

Home Star 6 Rating

Neilston homes are easier to keep warm and healthy, more cost effective to run, and more environmentally friendly than a home built to the current standards set by the New Zealand Building Code. Renters may never want to leave!

Here's what our previous customers had to say

We're incredibly proud of our commitment to keeping our new homeowners fully informed on the progress of their home and to work with them through any issues that may arise. We've completed every development we set out to in good time, but we'll let our testimonials speak for us!

Amelia, 2022

The commitment to a quality build has continued after settlement, with Neilston following up on every detail - right down to the fence posts. I am truly stoked to call this my home.

Nick & Yen, 2023

My experience with Neilston Home was exceptional. 

What stood out was their transparent process, ensuring we knew the progress and completion date of our home. 

Sara, Jim, and Nicki provided outstanding support, answering our many questions with warmth and professionalism.

Tim, 2022

We really appreciate Neilston Homes’ dedication to their clients, that they remained committed to completing the construction of our home despite the delays due to Covid-19 and the industry-wide construction material shortage.

Josh, 2022

One of the biggest things for us was just having enough space for our family (with 2 girls) and being able to give them their own rooms. This is something we thought we were a long way off from.

Franchelle, 2023

We knew we had an awesome location but seeing how beautiful the park at the back of our home was made us feel so grateful to wake up and unwind in such a cool location each day. We love how warm and well-insulated the home is and the small details like the lights going up the stairs and the sensors outside made for such a special touch.
