"Leaky Home" - Overseas Owners Resigned To Selling!

SOLD - This listing was sold in October 2016
An Invasive building inspection has identified weather-tightness issues in this 1990's constructed townhouse, a full copy of this report is available. What this means is the property needs to be remediated, which will include, but not necessarily be limited to re-cladding, replacement of some timber framing and redecoration.
Is a property like this saleable?? Absolutely - particularly if the price is right. Naturally we have had some tough conversations with our owners who understand what it is going to take to get this property sold, and they have instructed us to "just get on with it"!
Hence, ignore absolutely all previous pricing as it no longer applies given the evidence of the identified weather tightness issues.
However, all is not lost given some of the fundamentals of this home, such as its excellent location on the Western side of ever popular Watford Street, school zones being CBHS, Heaton Intermediate, Waimari Primary and private schools nearby including St Andrews College at the end of the road. Strowan is a highly desirable suburb with the added benefit of the Waimari Tennis Club being only a volley away.
Additionally, the layout of the house is very good and all the benefits of townhouse living and a simplified lifestyle will still remain upon remediation.
Clearly this represents an enticing opportunity for good buying in a blue chip location.
