Two plus two in­vest­ment awaits

Southern Real Estate Guide - - HOMES SOUTHERN -

There’s al­ways a rush of in­ter­est when a ‘For Sale’ sign goes up in Opa­heke’s But­ter­worth Ave.

Long re­garded as one of Pa­pakura’s best streets – cer­tainly one of its pret­ti­est – it is close to ev­ery­thing and has the Kirks Bush Do­main just op­po­site.

Num­ber 4 But­ter­worth Ave is at the do­main end of the street – a 711 square me­tre prop­erty con­tain­ing two soundly built twobed­room units.

Built of cedar and brick, they have an ef­fec­tive fire­wall be­tween them run­ning from the roof right down to the foun­da­tions.

They’re very sep­a­rate in other ways as well – sep­a­rate en­trances, garages, out­door taps, let­ter­boxes, wa­ter and power. Their sim­i­lar­i­ties are their warm and sunny as­pect, a re­cently re­placed roof, full ceil­ing and floor in­su­la­tion, two dou­ble bed­rooms apiece, light and bright liv­ing spa­ces with pic­ture win­dows, and ac­cess to a north-fac­ing rear gar­den. Fi­bre op­tic ca­bling is cur­rently be­ing in­stalled in the street for fast broad­band.

It all adds up to a ver­sa­tile prop­erty with sev­eral invit­ing prospects: for in­vestors it has a com­bined rental val­u­a­tion of $800 per week; for first home buy­ers or down­siz­ing re­tirees there’s a home in one with an in­come from the sec­ond; or you could use both to ac­com­mo­date ex­tended fam­ily but still en­joy pri­vate liv­ing.

The left unit (4A) has a strik­ing front en­trance in the form of a great stone fa­cade with a large port­hole win­dow. The cov­ered porch leads into a spa­cious lounge with a lovely street out­look in­clud­ing ma­ture kauri and other na­tive trees.

Through­out you can see the qual­ity of con­struc­tion, with plas­ter ceil­ings, moulded cor­nices and other nice touches. The kitchen and din­ing area is open plan, with a sep­a­rate laun­dry al­cove and a new hot wa­ter cylin­der. The unit has great stor­age, both in the hall and bed­rooms; also in the garage where there’s also a work­room and rear gar­den ac­cess.

Both bed­rooms are good­sized dou­bles, the main bed­room be­ing blessed with two dou­ble wardrobes tak­ing up an en­tire wall.

There’s a full bath­room with shower, bath, van­ity and heat lamps, and a sep­a­rate toi­let along­side.

The sec­ond unit (4B) has the same ba­sic lay­out – it has a slightly smaller sec­ond bed­room, but this is off­set by a full laun­dry and a ded­i­cated din­ing area and gal­ley kitchen.

The units are close to Drury and Pa­pakura shops and the train, with the mo­tor­way straight up Beach Rd. In zone for Opa­heke and Rose­hill schools.

An out­stand­ing Opa­heke op­por­tu­nity, 4 But­ter­worth Ave is to be sold at auc­tion at 12 noon on July 21 in Bay­leys rooms, 292 Great South Rd, Takanini.

Open home Sun­day 1.30 to 2pm; ap­point­ments con­tact Shel­ley Grieve at Bay­leys coun­ties of­fice, 213 1627 DDI or 021 326 511.
