Once in a while, we see a property come onto the market that is truly special. 66 Vandeleur Ave is one fine example of such a property. This house has everything that makes a great Kiwi home, a traditional weatherboard house on a 641mt full section, double garage with internal access, heaps of storage and a park-like backyard that really sets it apart from the crowd. The house was built in the 1970s with materials which stood the test of time. It was originally a three bedroom home with a standalone single garage. Over time it was extended and upgraded to a large home with an open plan kitchen, spacious living area, 3 bedrooms, office and internal accessed double garage. During the extension the original standalone garage was retained, this allows for extra storage and may be further developed into a sleepout (council approval required). With love for their children, the current owners have turned the large backyard into a park over time. There are lawns, decks, swings on the tree, and even a basketball court. You will have to see it to believe it! The location is great too, Vandeleur Ave is a family oriented street with homes medium density. It is close to Birkenhead and Northcote shopping centres and Auckland CBD is just 20 minutes' drive away. A small reserve with a children's playground and bus stops are within walking distance of the property. Under the Unitary Plan, this property is in the Mixed Housing Suburban Zone and there is an existing driveway to the backyard, so maybe it will be possible to build another house at the back. I know you won't want to lose the oasis now, nonetheless, it is a great potential for the future. My vendors have given me clear instruction to sell! This house will be sold. Don't hesitate.
