Description:

You can barely get a section in Christchurch for $245k let alone a section with house...

An opportunity here for someone with the time and resources to spend $5000 on a lick of paint and some landscaping and make $30-40k profit.

A rough diamond this once beautiful Character home could do with some polishing. A great place to start for the first home buyer there is so much potential to improve and add value.

This home is rich with charm with abundant bay windows, lead lights, wood panelling, wooden floors and an open fire. Also a logburner (wetback) in the
dining/kitchen area.

These original character homes are getting harder and harder to find.

There are two large bedrooms, one with built-in rimu furniture, and a large lounge/living room which has also been used as a bedroom at times in the past. There is a seperate sleepout behind the house. There is potential to turn the house into a 4 bedroom dwelling.

Original Axminster carpet in the lounge and hallway.

The bathroom is large and has the original clawfoot bath. New lino was laid to the bathroom and kitchen/dining areas approx 3 years ago.

The sunny entertaining area is very private and has loads of potential for the budding landscaper to muck in...

Oversize and overheight Single garage - plenty of off street parking.

This home will qualify for the Ecan clean heat project - so depending on the buyers income braket they may get a free heatpump and underfloor foil installed.

Currently tenanted at $300pw. Tenants would love to stay on - but will move out with appropriate notice.
