What a tantalising opportunity for a builder, investor or a future money maker for land bankers and landlords. Offering five bedrooms and four bathrooms among its many other benefits, maybe it's even an opportunistic buy for a family bursting at the seams with growing kids and elderly parents. That separate living below is thought provoking I'm sure. The owner has enjoyed a beautiful lifestyle in this treasured location and is a reluctant seller, having spent many years here watching the area grow in value and reaping the benefits of a home that is positioned on the fringe of vibrant Torbay Village, and that iconic Long Bay beach and reserve. I cannot say it's a stroll to the shops and services, nor to public transport. It's simply all right there at your feet. The beach and water loving family will adore the area and lifestyle and also the spacious interior of the home. Air B n B or homestay homestead is not out of the question. I love sitting in the upper sunroom and gazing out to sea and Whangaparaoa Peninsula. The walled courtyard that flows from the large, high ceilinged lounge and, also from the kitchen instil that Mediterranean magic and encourages the garden party and cappuccino set. Ignore the Rateable Value! What is this home worth? If you are a bargain hunter or have a desire to get your money out of the banks and into property, then this impressive home may be right for you. The future may involve some redevelopment of the property. Are you up to it? Come and sea for yourself. I'm ready for the schemers and dreamers, and the realistic developers and renovators and low budget family too. Take a deep look into the nature of this property and if it's right for you, take your best shot at the auction. No offer will offend but the right offer will delight.
