  • The surprises keep coming with this property, a cute, affordable cottage retaining its 1930s charms but has been slightly refurbished for easy, 2020s living.
  • The location is part of the appeal, only 2 Km from Tirau on State Highway 5.
  • Secondly, it is quietly away from the road, a block of land large enough for some cattle, horses or sheep.
  • The section is flat views across farmland. Nice private deck, that basks in the sun, will be delightful for morning coffee or a family BBQ.
  • The cottage shares a large (6008m2) section with two paddocks of grass and Chorikie.
  • There’s a small garage that will be large enough for one car and an area for a workshop or storage.
  • There is plenty of potential for landscaping and garden development. The cottage still has its lovely old ways, its front porch, its original ceilings, and its timber weather boards.
  • Inside, though the house has been added on to over the years and modernized with an updated kitchen and new carpet.
  • There is no fire, but a heat pump has been installed for those winter nights.
  • The house is mostly clad with original weather boards, with a corrugated iron roof.
  • While the house is comfortable as is, there’s a huge scope for more updates and improvements inside and out.
  • It represents an excellent opportunity for first home buyers, lifestyle block entry or investors.
  • The astute buyer will recognize there is potential here.
