Peaceful seclusion in Roslyn

Positioned at the end of a quiet street in one of Dunedins premium locations is this secluded 3-bedroom home.
The lack of road noise and abundance of bird song is what strikes first as you enter the front gate.
Beyond the sunny courtyard the front door opens to the classic central hallway flowing right through to the back veranda. Kitchen and dining is combined, with a heat pump for convenient warmth, and one window offering glimpses of the ocean. The separate lounge at the rear is a restful space, featuring large windows, and a 2009-installed woodburner. All bedrooms are doubles. The period charm and sense of history of this home is unmissable as is the restful feel.
The back yard is overlooked by a cosy veranda and is hidden, green oasis of mostly natives, sheltered by a showy Southern Rata.
Largely in original condition, with some deferred maintenance evident, the potential to personalise and add value through repair and renovation is immense; any time and money spent in this blue-chip location will be well invested. This property is ideal for that owner occupier seeking renovation reward. Likewise, those with vision to see the potential for a quick turn-around should inspect. This property would also make an excellent long-term investment property with a rental appraisal coming in at $460 - $490 per week.
Ceiling insulation is up to code and fibre broadband is installed.
Convenient to town you may walk to work. Run out of essentials, or have a hankering for an espresso? No problem: Roslyn village is within easy reach. There is kindy at the end of the street and several quality schools are close and in zone. For the golfing enthusiast, Belleknowes Golf Course is a minute walk away. Proximity to the town belt means evening walks may be in order!
The vendor has very much enjoyed the tranquility and convenience of life here for the last 11 years but purchased a lifestyle property and has plans to build.
