A super opportunity to own a special property in a very private setting close to the heart of town. Set well back off the road down a leg in driveway, you would be forgiven for not knowing that this very old homestead ever existed. There has been a lot of work carried out to have it well on the way to being as fabulous as it could be, but there's still work to do, hence a fantastic opportunity for someone to get stuck in and create your own slice of paradise.
This home has a great layout for the larger family. The entrance way is big enough that it could be used as a 2nd lounge, and off to the side there's a master bedroom with walk in storage and a modernised ensuite bathroom. You can access the outdoor patio from this area, which basks in privacy from the surrounding homes, and attracts all day sun. The 2nd bathroom in this home needs renovated, but the living area and kitchen have had refreshed joinery and you have access to what could be a stunning feature of this property, a sun-room that could be used as another bedroom for the larger family. Up a central stairway from the lounge you will find 3 more bedrooms, two of them doubles. This all sits on a family friendly section which is fully fenced and large enough for the kids to have room to kick a ball around.
The original part of the homestead was built out of Oamaru stone, and you can see plenty of evidence of its 150 year life span in its character filled exterior walls. The exterior timber work has recently been upgraded with Linea Weatherboard, there's a log burner attached to wetback, a Moisture Master system installed, and Pink Batts in the ceiling. For the savvy renovator that doesn't mind getting stuck in and completing the painting and decorating this is a fantastic opportunity. The home does need a re roof in the not too distant future, and the home has been priced to reflect the work that needs completed. Negotiable over $199000. Viewing by appointment.
