Hilltop Living on a Shoestring Budget
42 Rowan Avenue, Aranui
Property ID: PD4947
Selling "as is, where is". Strategically positioned on a hill well above flood risk or liquefaction, this 3-bedroom bungalow has succumbed to the passage of time, deferred maintenance, and the earthquake sequence of the past 10 years. What would have once been an iconic family home now presents as a project that is not for the faint-hearted.
A worn gravel driveway wraps around the lower reaches of the hill to a tandem garage at the rear of the property. A formed concrete staircase climbs to the dwelling which has uninterrupted views across the surrounding neighbourhood. Although the roughcast and perimeter foundations are compromised the home has retained some of the original character features with leadlight windows and plaster trim. Some renovation has been carried out to the bathroom and kitchen since the home was built but much of the structure is reminiscent of its era. The freestanding woodburner has another 5 years of serviceable life.
If you have a little spare cash, aren't relying on the bank for lending, and are prepared to roll up your sleeves and put your DIY skills into action, then this property has 'opportunity' written all over it. Visit one the scheduled open homes or call today for your appointment to view.
