About this listing

SOLD - This listing was sold in July 2019.

AUCTION: Thursday, 25 July 2019 at 12.00pm, Harcourts Wellington City Office (unless sold prior).
We have a big view, a big section and a big opportunity here for an enthusiastic and astute buyer. This 1970s classic is ripe for a makeover and the new owner will certainly reap the rewards of refurbishment and renovation. Solidly built over two levels, upstairs the kitchen is vintage seventies with its mosaic tiles, retro wallpaper and archway that leads to a wonderfully light, bright and open living room (with timber floors) that faces west for fantastic sun, and over the coast to the snow caps of the top of the South Island. The upper deck is in need of replacement, but you'll easily see what an enhancement such an upgrade could bring. A small sitting room with a wood burner adds a second, cosy living space (you might open the lounge right up into this room) and there's two bedrooms with built-in wardrobes plus the bathroom on this level. Downstairs is the surprisingly large master bedroom (with a second w/c) leading into a useful office/study. A large section in full afternoon sun offers possibilities for landscaping, chickens or vege gardens and there's certainly room for play and pets to enjoy. Drive on to off-street parking, with the garage currently converted to a workshop with superb benchtops, shelving and sinks (and bonus w/c). Our busy owners had plans and dreams but have found a new home to love so reluctantly leave this groovy vintage house for the next energetic new owner. LIM and builder's report will be available - will be sold - come and inspect today!
