Upgraded by owners ... downgraded by quakes. "As Is"

306 Bower Avenue, North New Brighton


Property ID: PD4963

4 2 1 2

See the potential, seize the opportunity. Four bedrooms, two bathrooms, a modern sleepout, and double garage provide ample living and accommodation options for family groups or extended living arrangements. The lounge and family room open through sliders to a terrace and private outdoor living area with shade sails and established gardens - offering shelter and privacy. An awesome investment opportunity or spacious 147sqm family home.

Most of the home has been double glazed, insulated, and there are two heatpumps to take care of climate control. The house was re-roofed with coloursteel when the additions and alterations were carried out about 20 years ago.

The owners have accepted a cash settlement for EQ damage from their insurer and offer this extensive property to the market on an "as is" uninsured basis. The floor level variation is 148mm which has caused damage to the cladding and the linings, but the home is comfortable, and all services are functional. Releveling to an insurable standard would realise your equity in the property, or you may choose to simply renovate and redecorate and take advantage of entry-level buying in this fast-appreciating location.

With the new Shirley Boys and Avonside Girls High School's just 400m from the front gate this one is a winner for families of teens; and those whose lifestyle pursuits favour the beach, forest, golf courses, or reserves will appreciate this property's location in the heart of our city's recreational playground. The metro bus service links Bower Ave with the network of public transport routes across the city and outlying areas.

The size, location, and price-point of this property will appeal to those who are not too risk-averse and are looking for an outstanding opportunity to create income. High interest is anticipated so visit one of the scheduled open homes or call today to avoid disappointment.
