About this listing

SOLD - This listing was sold in April 2018.

Act now or risk missing out! Our Vendors have made plans and are ready to move!

There are so many possibililties awaiting the new owner of this charming character home in the heart of sought after Tai Tapu.

A real icon of the town, the original house was built around 1876 and has historically been owned by a school master and a blacksmith among others. The current vendors purchased the property in 1991 and completed a large extension to the property, while still retaining the character and restoring the original part of the home.

Inside you will find plenty of scope to change the layout, or add your own touches, with 3 different lounge/living areas (1 with a log burner + heat pump and 2 with ornate open fires). Open plan kitchen/dining with the original coal range reinstated in the new part of the house. A double bedroom, bathroom and separate laundry complete downstairs, with another 2 bedrooms upstairs.

Set on a generous 2022sqm section you will also find a 3 car garage, plus another large 5 car garage, and 3 versatile storage/garden sheds. The grounds are sheltered by large trees (some over 150 years old) adding to the privacy and providing a gorgeous outlook.

Hidden right among the local shops including the Challenge, Belleza, Nectar and with the extremely popular cafe; The Store across the road, this property is in a great central location.
