Out of the Ordinary
This very unique property in the vibrant town of Takaka has 'interesting and eclectic' stamped all over it!
The home was originally built prior to 1920 and has been upgraded and added to over the years, yet still retains some beautiful original features, plenty of charm - and scope for you to make your mark, too.
The vendor has carried out considerable work, such as replacing the exterior timber cladding and adding a kitchen, both of which are sympathetic to the general ambience of the house. Original timber floors, interior doors and the sash windows have been retained; affording a quaint 'feel' that reflects the home's - and indeed the township's - distinctive vibe.
Spread over two storeys, the home comprises an open-plan and extended living-dining area with an adjacent and well-appointed kitchen. Off the hallway is the generously proportioned ground-floor bedroom, plus the combined laundry and bathroom. Upstairs there's an expansive loft-style bedrooms/living area and a toilet and washbasin, along with views across the rooftops to the hills and ranges.
On cold days you can hunker down by the log burner in the lounge, which also has a wetback to provide you with ample hot water. When the sun is shining there's plenty of space to live alfresco on the terrace and in the lovely grounds, with the fruit bowl orchard providing a bounty for your table.
Also in the grounds are a selection of outbuildings, a sizeable garage-workshop and an adjoining sleep-out with ensuite, so if you need space for teens or want a home office there's scope to arrange things to suit your needs. Indeed, its proximity to the town's central hub makes this property a very attractive option.
Purchasers who like something a bit out of the ordinary, somewhere that brims with promise and where they can exercise vision and flair will love this quirky home, indeed she's a 'must see'. So, now is the time to pick up the phone and call me...
