Is this the most affordable, liveable DO-UP on a full-site moments to Ponsonby Rd?
The potential is obvious but would suit someone wanting to get into the area and live in as-is. Plenty of options - do a little or alot? Ideal for a couple of mates buying together and rent out a couple of rooms? Its a great rental/land-bank investment particularly with everything that's going on around it. Some astute configuration would open up some favourable rental options? Or a couple of tweaks and live-in while AirBnB below?
This turn of the century square front villa is original but also very comfy, insulated & liveable while you explore the options. It has all the features of its era - kauri floorboards, coal range, scrim in two rooms and an incredibly high 3.3m stud height.
The gently sloping 480m² section (blank canvas) on the favoured western side of the street offers views out to Waitakere's & wonderful sunsets.
Configure it how you want - 3,4 or 5 bedrooms? The current owners of 9 years have used it as 2 bedrooms and separate dining room upstairs and another 3 bedrooms for their teenagers downstairs. Internal access (currently external) was part of the future plan. They have approved Resource Consent and Concept Plans to extend the house out the back with large deck, internal stairwell, plus bathroom and kitchenette downstairs.
It might not tick every box. But large home & section with a 3 min walk to Ponsonby and 20 min walk to CBD is unheard of at this price!
