About this listing

SOLD - This listing was sold in May 2019.

Two properties, one fantastic opportunity, and "where is" just gives it the edge!

TC1 land bordered by the headwaters of the Avon River, established grounds with mature trees and shrubs, and in a quiet cul-de-sac conveniently located close to community amenities makes this an enviable proposition.
A failed repair in 2013 means that these two adjacent units have floor level variations which still fall short of the MBIE guidelines. The owner has been cash settled by the insurer, and rather than endure another round of repairs has elected to offer these properties to the market on an 'as is' basis. Both dwellings are currently insured and have been deemed repairable.

Built circa 1974 and faithfully maintained by the proud owner, these properties are exceptionally tidy and well-cared for. The front unit is split level with the kitchen and living area sitting above two single garages with a northerly street-facing aspect. The two double bedrooms and service areas are downstairs. A sliding door from the master bedroom opens to a very private and sheltered yard which is securely fenced and has a lawn with perimeter gardens. Both units have a bath and separate shower room, separate laundry and new hot water cylinders. The units are constructed from Summerhill Stone over a timber frame with block firewall between the units, lightweight metal tile roof, and aluminium windows.

The rear unit has been updated with a new kitchen and has an open-plan kitchen/dining/living space. The generous yard has been landscaped and is a real botanical haven. Stepped paths meander down a 5m bank to the Avon River which has its source just 200m upstream. It is truly a special slice of NZ bush in the heart of suburbia.

The front unit is currently rented by a wonderful tenant and rear property is vacant. These two properties would suit cashed-up purchasers looking for a profitable addition to their investment portfolio, a home and income opportunity, or tradespeople seeking a project to remediate and add value in a blue-chip location. Visit one of the scheduled open homes at the rear unit, or call today for a comprehensive information pack or to make your viewing appointment. Prompt action is advised as high interest is anticipated and these properties may sell prior to the advertised auction date.
