Originally built as a worker’s town for the Wairakei Geothermal Power Station, these homes were built to last! Now with first home buyers and families moving into this humming little village; you can also have a chance to bring your paintbrush, a little imagination and some elbow grease! Make this home your very own piece of paradise, complete with your own apple tree at the front door and plum out the back.
Three substantial sized bedrooms; the master with external access to the backyard and all sharing the family bathroom and separate toilet there is room for the whole family. The large living room with enviable indoor/outdoor flow through French doors. This home is also perfect in winter thanks to an inbuilt wood-burner, ceiling and floor insulation and all-day sun.
The separate kitchen is highly functional and has been modernised but awaiting your finishing touches. With a little bit of imagination, a different layout could offer a large, open plan living space perfect for entertaining. The separate laundry is generous, has an original concrete tub (which are all the rage right now) and lends itself perfectly to a mudroom, or again different configuration could see the inclusion of another W/C.
The large section of 959 sqm (more or less) already contains a separate single garage, however, further development could see this increased, simply left as space for children to run around and play or the friendly game of backyard cricket.
Just around the corner is the highly sought after Wairakei Primary School or in the weekends the whole family can take advantage of the numerous walking and cycling tracks that are at your doorstep.
This home will be popular with first home buyers, investors and renovators alike, so you’ll have to be quick with this one! Vacant possession is available as of 1st February 2019.
