Affordable Living and Lifestyle at East Park

Many residents north of the Auckland harbour bridge will be familiar with the growing development around Silverdale over the past few years. East Park is a micro-estate located adjacent to Millwater, and close to the new Wainui Road interchange. East Park is under development now, and is a fantastic option for those looking for more affordable housing, with brand new four bedroom homes starting at $845,000.

The estate’s proximity to excellent schooling, shopping, transport and leisure activites, coupled with the affordability of these new homes makes it an excellent choice for those wishing to buy anywhere north of the Auckland CBD. East Park is close to some of the best schooling available in Auckland. Kingsway Preschool is nearby, as is the decile 9 Silverdale School, which caters for primary and intermediate students across years 1-8. A modern school with the latest facilities, it has quickly grown to over 500 students. Sought-after Kingsway School and Stella Maris Catholic School are also close-by, and both cater for years 1 through to 13.

The Southern Cross Healthcare Surgical Hospital is also located nearby, while the development of the 53 hectare Highgate Business Park will provide a range of exciting employment opportunities.
