For nearly 60 years the vendor has called it home. Maturing years and compromised health means that it is time to relinquish ownership of this beauty and allow another family to make their special memories here too.
Sited on a private rear section of some 1060sqm this property is a classic example of the quarter acre paradise. The traditional kiwi can-do attitude is exemplified here with evidence of many a weekend toiling and a clever creative spirit. The solid 3-bedroom bungalow is oriented to take full advantage of the sun, and the outbuildings are clearly purpose-derived. Faithfully maintained, and sporting some post-quake renovations the décor is still largely original. There is the option to move straight into this functional family home and enjoy the retro flavour or enhance and add value. Historically the lot used to be a builder's yard, so the TC2 category land is solid and well compacted with an extra-wide driveway making access a breeze.
All three bedrooms are filled with light, offer great space and storage. The well-proportioned kitchen flows to a lounge which in turns connects with the concrete patio. The original carpets have served well, but with solid rimu flooring beneath there is the opportunity to show off the natural timber construction. With a bit of work and TLC, this much-loved would make a fantastic step onto the property ladder.
Zoned for the new Shirley Boys High and Avonside Girls High Schools, only a short drive to a supermarket, library and the local facilities, and opposite the beach - this property has got so much going for it.
With a shortage of properties on the market across the city we are predicting a busy campaign, so we suggest viewing sooner rather than later to avoid disappointment. Call today or visit one of the scheduled open homes.
