Virgin slice of '60's history in charming Huntly brick... On 809m² of flat Howick land? In MHU zone? Impossible.

45 years ago, not long after Jakich's rolling farmland near Howick Village had been divided into house lots, Gary and Nola bought this 3 bedroom 140m² jewel.
The 1935 concrete road led in one direction "to town", but also seawards to growing Howick Village, and life for this skilled butcher and his wife was good.
Amazingly, the solidly constructed home, with its sensible floor-plan, native timber framing, extravagant Tawa flooring and concrete tiles, served them well, and they never felt the need to change anything much at all.
Now Nola has moved into something smaller, and it's time to let it go.

Do come visit. The house is a lovely example of its period: the pedestal hand-basin is now fashionable again, beautiful Cathedral glass double doors divide lounge and dining, the elegant cornicing to fibrous plaster ceilings is intact, and, along with wide entrance hall and wardrobes to each bedroom, everything points to little expense being spared in the build. Yes there's work to do, of course, but the owner has put in new carpet to give you a start.

But the level site is also remarkable. Zoned as Mixed Housing Urban, it can support considerable intensification, and our drone shots will give you an idea of what the views could be like. With buses at the gate, top quality schools, cultural, sporting and community activities and multiple beaches all close at hand, the position here is almost too good to be true, for families or for investors.
