An Easy Decision For Someone With Vision

SOLD - This listing was sold in April 2018
It's rare that such an opportunity to buy such good value comes along, but when it does we like to sing it from the roof-tops! This 3 bedroom, permanent material home in Hoon Hay is the classic, original Toyota Corolla of houses. With just one careful owner since she was built in the 1970s, the old girl's value has, of course, increased, but like that Toyota, she's seen better times, and needs a bit of a tune up, some reupholstering and panel beating and maybe even a new paint job. Enhanced over the years with a heat-pump, modern kitchen, double glazing through most of the home (even some triple glazing in places!) and insulation, the 'bones' are fantastic ... just bring your Resene colour charts and design ideas to make it your own.

The home offers excellent off street parking, with an open paved area (excellent for a taller trade vehicle), as well as a carport and locked garden shed and the location is tops. It's a 3 minute walk to the bus stop, Hillmorton High School is directly opposite, there's a childcare centre just a few doors down, Hoon Hay Park is at the end of the street and one of Christchurch's best veterinary clinics is close by. Don't forget the local shops where you'll find some of the best eateries in town (including the Hillmorton Bakery with its amazing range of naughty baked goodies). If you're tired of renting and feel it's time to pop your foot on the first rung of the property ladder, then this wee gem is for you. Investors must also surely be interested knowing that this highly rentable property will provide a steady, healthy income stream.
