A Wolf in Sheep's Clothing
This Edwardian residence will appeal to investors, or perhaps purchasers who love a project.
The home captures good sun throughout the day and comprises an open-plan living and dining area, a compact kitchen with modern cabinetry, an adjoining laundry and bathroom; a traditional central hallway, two double bedrooms and a shower room. The sheltered front porch and verandah leading off the main bedroom is a lovely spot to relax and enjoy your morning tea.
Unlike many houses of this era, she's delightfully warm and that's because she is currently a rental. Therefore she has upgraded insulation, professionally installed retro-fitted double glazing, powerful log burner and a heat transfer system.
Outside, the gardens are very generously proportioned with vegetable beds, mature shrubs and trees, plus a sleep-out and various outbuildings to meet your storage needs.
The home has so many original features such as lofty ceilings, vintage fireplaces, timber floors, sash windows it's a renovator's dream. Live here while you re-vamp the villa, but since there are reliable tenants already in situ, who are keen to stay on, you could simply invest. Indeed, purchasers who have a long term plan could benefit from this type of arrangement.
A family will love the semi-rural 'fringes of the township' location, as it's only a short drive or easy bike ride from Motueka town centre, with its leisure facilities, schools and supermarkets. Nearby SH60 takes you straight to the golden beaches of Kaiteriteri and Stephen's Bay which you can visit for day trips with the children.
Traditional homes like this are increasingly scarce, so if the thought of refurbishment work doesn't scare you, call us to view. You'll see 93 Pah Street is something to sink your teeth into.
