Yeah, Swanson is OK. It's still an area that offers opportunities for regular people - that's to say it's neither been 'discovered' and gone all trendy, nor overrun with investor type pariahs. It has a good mix of cultures - very Westie in that regard! And I'd say it offers something for everyone. The schools don't have a great rep but are improving - which kind sums the suburb up.

Thumbs up from me

I am not sure a lottery win would be sufficient to buy a house like that in Auckland.

Not my £10 for sure! We would need a very very good exchange rate!

It's around the 1.5 million NZ$ mark - which is very high for Swanson (but there are quite a few luxury houses in the vicinity - more so on Scenic Drive) but if it was in a more desirable location, like Mission Bay or Remuera, you'd be looking at 3 or 4 times that price.

It will be interesting to see what it goes for at auction, if it goes.
