About this listing

SOLD - This listing was sold in August 2014.

Treasured for over 20 years our current owner is now ready to part with this wonderful piece of history, an apartment within the original homestead of 53 Vauxhall Road. The old homestead was divided into four offering two apartments on the ground level and two on the upper. Enjoying wide views to the North and East, the property overlooks the North Shore Rugby grounds, and out towards Rangitoto Island. The views sweep around towards Mission Bay where you can watch plenty of activity on the harbour. This is a property that first time buyers and investors should view. Full of charm, the property has a considered quirkiness about it which you could further contemporise increasing the value of this investment. The apartment has the benefit of its own single garage and its own access up to the private balcony from which you can sit and enjoy that morning cuppa as you take in the view. Occupants can certainly walk to Devonport, Cheltenham Beach and shops from here so you will love the location. The stratum title is professionally managed in relation to a fair and reasonable body corporate with an added sinking fund for the old homestead (primarily for external maintenance and repairs) which currently has a healthy balance. In the mid 1970s a multitude of townhouses were built, each with their own car parking facilities, and many with their own gardens. The old homestead sits off to one side and behind many of the townhouses, proudly steadfast and iconic. This complex is known as Littler Park, all units being part of the unit title and encompassing the body corporate. Come and take a look at this unusual opportunity to own a piece of history in one of the North Shore's oldest areas surrounded by beautiful beaches, parks and a lifestyle that now, finally, you can afford!
