This Auckland home proved to be the perfect mix of city and suburban life - and was also quick to sell.

Located 10 minutes drive from the city centre in Auckland's much sought after St Mary's Bay, the $1.94 million asking price was quickly snapped up when this home went to market.

The former owner said the four-bedroom villa, built in 2007, offered her and her partner a wonderful home for their busy lives.

"We are very busy, coming and going all the time, so the drawcard was that it was very low maintenance.
"It had a backyard but not a huge garden so it didn't need to to much upkeep."

The other things which attracted the pair to the house were the location and contemporary build, she said.

"It's a nice house but it also allows you to have a city life.

"It was really well built and quite contemporary in the sense of all the gadgets and sound system.

"Sensor lights and dimmers and a sound system all over the house so you can play music in every single room."

It was very well insulated with underfloor heating throughout the lower level and top quality appliances, she said.

It also had two distinctive living spaces, which was perfect for entertaining extended family, she said.

Unfortunately for the new owners, what appears to be an eight-burner barbecue in one of the photos will be leaving with the former owners.

Although they probably won't mind - most people who spend $2m on a house should have some spare change around for a new barbie.
