Op­por­tu­nity knocks

A life­style, a busi­ness ven­ture, or a prop­erty de­vel­op­ment – the choice is yours, with a rare chance to ful­fil dreams. Emma Good­win looks over a prop­erty op­por­tu­nity in Feild­ing.

Prospects like this are as rare as hen’s teeth. Af­ter all, how of­ten do you find in town a block of land this size that al­ready has a home on it and is zoned res­i­den­tial? Pos­si­bly one of the last of its kind in the area, this piece of real es­tate has so many op­tions it will ap­peal to many peo­ple.

There are two blocks of land tak­ing up both sides of the corner of Pharazyn and Port Streets. Buy both or one or the other.

One block has a three-be­d­room cot­tage that is steeped in mem­o­ries. Owned by the same fam­ily for decades, if the walls could talk they would tell sto­ries of a time when things were a lot sim­pler.

The other block is bare land and both are set just a few hun­dred me­tres from a petrol sta­tion and Kim­bolton Road, and just two kilo­me­tres from town. Feild­ing High School is a short walk away.

Slice ei­ther or both of them up for de­vel­op­ment. Keep the cot­tage and ren­o­vate for your own life­style block, and sub di­vide the other to max­imise your re­turn and pay for your own home.

The cot­tage it­self needs work, there is no doubt about that. The in­te­rior is orig­i­nal and the kitchen is typ­i­cal farm­house style of the era. There’s even the orig­i­nal range still in place.

Sur­rounded by fruit trees, a gar­den that of­fers ad­ven­ture and ex­plo­ration for the chil­dren, pad­dock space for a pony and some stock and sheds, it’s all here, it just needs some­one who has the en­thu­si­asm and abil­ity to love it again and bring it back to life.

Or shift it and you have a great sec­tion to put your dream home on. It’s a life­style ready to be had in town.

Sur­round­ing this land are fam­ily homes of a high cal­i­bre. Feild­ing is grow­ing and why shouldn’t you be part of the ex­pan­sion?

For those look­ing for an ex­cit­ing in­vest­ment op­por­tu­nity or a way to change their lives, this could be it.
