SOLD BY STEVEN FIELD.
Rarely available for purchase is this very special slice of Dunedin real estate and history: a terraced house at Gladstone Terraces.
This unique property is a tranquil inner-city oasis situated in a very convenient location, being just an easy 10-minute walk to the Octagon and close to trendy cafes.
Perfect for the single person, professional couple, or downsizer, this 2-bedroom home is also the ideal low-maintenance town-base or bolthole.
Beyond the front deck, enter a stylish, open-plan living area with lovely polished floors. This area is comprised of a foyer, lounge, kitchen, and rear lobby, and has a spacious, homely feel. Victorian fireplaces with heritage tiles and high ceilings maintain the charm of yesteryear. A compact bathroom at the rear features shower over bath. You will spend a lot of time on the sheltered deck to the rear, a highly recommended location for your morning coffee! Upstairs are the two bedrooms with built in cupboards while one room enjoys harbour glimpses.
One of seven owner occupied terraced houses, you are buying not just a charming home but also community; the neighbours are friendly, like-minded owner-occupiers adding an extraordinary level of security.
A magical component of this property is the garden; when you buy 48 Melville Street you also buy a one seventh share of a beautiful garden. This is protected by a covenant for the benefit of all owners. This is apartment-style living but with the bonus of a big outdoor space: the best of both worlds.
The hard work has been done with a new roof installed in 2018. The windows on the street-side of the house are double glazed and the ceiling is insulated. A heat pump in the living area warms the whole room at the touch of a button. Electrical works have made the wiring compliant and Giganet fibre broadband is installed.
The vendor has made this their home for many years and loved every minute of it, but a change of personal circumstances has now opened this opportunity to you.
