About this listing

SOLD - This listing was sold in November 2016.

TENDER CLOSES: Thursday, 10 November 2016 at 2:00pm, Harcourts Wellington City Office (not selling prior). This solid well maintained property offers so many opportunities for the new owner. Home to her current family for the past 34 years, this gracious character residence dates back to the late 1800s and has witnessed many changes throughout her life. Most recently she was re-roofed, (including new insulation), and painstakingly stripped back to bare wood for a meticulous external repaint. Offering spacious high-stud living over two levels, two bathrooms, an office, and four bedrooms. You can understand why the current owners have been here for so long. The location is second to none. Arguably one of the closest large family homes in Wellingtons' CBD. The heart of The Terrace is a two minute walk away (mostly under cover). Victoria University, Lambton Quay and Parliament are all at your doorstep. With the single garage and off-street car park, just leave the car at home. You simply can't go wrong.
The options going forward are limited only by your imagination and with large intact properties this close to the city becoming such a rare commodity, it makes immense investment sense. Make the decision to view, and call us now.
From the vendors - "We love this house. It has been very kind to us and our children and grandchildren over the years. Its position has many advantages for family living. There is a primary school fifty metres along the road. All the facilities of town are within walking distance, and our children used them to the full. There are four state secondary schools within walking distance for teenagers. The university campuses are no more than fifteen minutes' walk away. Our own current walking times are two minutes to Lambton Quay, five to the corner of Boulcott and Willis streets. Ten minutes to Parliament or the Government Buildings, fifteen minutes to Te Papa and twenty five to Kent Terrace. We have found that our home has been a natural gathering place for our children's friends. We cannot think of a better place to have brought up our children."
