About this listing
With its rich history - and an even sweeter future - this timeless home provides a mouth-watering array of possibilities.

The original home is over 100 years old, with ongoing additions and alterations designed to enhance comfort and ease of living. The warmth of gorgeous rimu cathedral ceilings combine with hard-wearing slate flooring to create a classic ambience in the kitchen/dining wing. Crucial service areas have been updated, with near new carpet throughout and superb insulation. Four bedrooms (one is a small single with wardrobe and desk, or could be a large study). Well oriented to the sun, a heatpump and clean air approved woodburner further enhance your indoor climate. Outdoors a private terrace and BBQ area provide an optimal setting for alfresco entertaining.

Nestled into a quiet street, yet still close to the CBD, the location could not be bettered. Proximity to nearby public & private schools has been a boon, while the cafes & restaurants of Victoria St ensure you will never be hungry or thirsty! Your recreational options embrace Hagley Park (golf, fishing, tennis or simply walking the dog), galleries & museums; with numerous services just steps away at Carlton Corner.

But the real cherry on top is surely the property's "Residential Medium Density" zoning which grants you exciting options for future development of the 759m2 site, further underpinning the worth of your investment.

Our owners' near 30 year tenure is a testament to how pivotal the home has been to their lives, however they've determined the time is right to downsize. Their new home awaits, so with our sellers highly motivated we would encourage your earliest inspection.
