Well-positioned in a desirable area of new and recently built properties, this well-loved and well-lived-in 1950's weatherboard home is a little different to the rest of the crowd.
A wide entryway through lovely decorative glass doors leads to polished native timber floorboards in beautiful condition, and a simple but effective layout comprised of three similar-sized bedrooms, bathroom and laundry on one axis of the home and kitchen and living on the other.
A large kitchen/diner with cupboard space galore opens onto the sitting room on one side. On the opposite side, it leads to the internal access to the garage, and the back door entry space between the garage and kitchen could easily work as a small mudroom, with the addition of a few shelves and hooks here and there.
A generous family bathroom with a bath and a shower and a large, separate laundry with an extra WC provides a perfect set-up for families.
There's insulation both top and bottom, along with the convenient comfort of a heat pump in the living room.
The large double garage at the rear of the house offers parking for two cars and some room left over to squeeze in a small workshop. The backyard harks back to another era, with room for kids to play and secret spots for them to hide, and still plenty of space for a vege garden amongst mature trees of all kinds.
With a very large section it offers plenty of potential. According to the current HDC Arataki Urban Development area, it is unable to be subdivided without Resource Consent, as it is situated in the Havelock North General Residential Zone. However, a supplementary dwelling of up to 80sqm can be positioned on the site, subject to Building Consent.
With plenty of retro appeal, this house is a characterful treasure-trove just waiting to be discovered.
