By Negotiation - Upwards of $680,000
We are very proud to offer for sale this solid brick 3 double bedroom home with lovely natural timber features throughout. When you enter, it is evident that the owner has loved living here for over 38 years, the house is basically original in decor but perfectly maintained throughout. All the rooms are spacious with the dining/lounge area facing north to capture the sun. An inbuilt slow combustion Kent fire keeps you warm in winter with a DVS ventilation system with 4 outlets enhancing the health of the home's occupants. The kitchen is original with solid wood doors and all original latches, and offering a full length single basin stainless steel bench. The bathroom offers both a bath and shower with a separate toilet & laundry room. This property is set on a section of established gardens including several fruit trees. Offering a separate, matching brick garage with concertina, solid wood doors and a lockable rear door which gives access to a small workshop for tinkering, creative and savvy owner's in-built shelving. The garage extends out to a clear roofed carport allowing for "almost dry" clothes-drying even in wet weather but there is also an original rotary style clothes line. A stroll down the back garden path brings you to a double bird aviary (presently used for dry housing the firewood), a fresh rain-water tank capturing water for the garden along with a hot house "happy place space" for the potentially propagating gardener. At the rear boundary is a Yugoslavian style stone wall, along with a wooden fence for security. This property is situated in a quiet no exit street across from multi sporting venues on Kensington Park, but is also handy being centrally located only a short drive from the hub of Kensington, 2km from Whangarei Boy and Girls High schools and approximately 3km to the city centre. In so many ways this property is perfect.
