This sprawling 1132m² site with cattle and sheep for neighbours, in this highly desirable location adjacent to Cornwall Park, has to be considered by any developer looking for that perfect spot for the next project. So ignore the CV, do your sums on the land value alone and come to the auction.
Added on to in 1991 to provide a self contained flat with open plan living, the 1940s home overlooks Cornwall Park and contains many original features, such as Axminster carpet, a leadlight window and elaborate wallpaper that was in vogue in its heyday. An internal access staircase leads to the under house double tandem garage, alongside of which is ample dry storage accessed by a side door on the opposite side of the home.
There's a formal lounge at the front, and an open plan lounge, dining and kitchen at the rear, plus another family room space and a separate dining area looking out on the park. You could recreate this and not be built out on.
So, while it could be turned into a stunning four bedroom family home with several living spaces, most see the site as a great opportunity for further development and gain.
Brand new homes would be a wonderful option here, looking out on one of Auckland's greatest assets.
