If you're in a trade - or have great contacts in the trade then here's a home/investment opportunity that's a bit outside the box, but it shouldn't be too difficult to get your head around it.. in a nutshell, this is an approved 2 unit building. The front part (flat A) of the original house is currently rented to a very good long term tenant. The rear part (flat B) was about to undergo a major renovation with council approved plans and a building consent in place. The owners circumstances have changed so this is for sale 'as is where is' - with the plans and consents. So a great opportunity for the savvy buyer with vision and a 'can do' attitude.
Options include: (a) long term rent both (b) live in B and continue renting out A (c) rent out A and short term accommodation flat B as this option has also been council approved (d) covert the property back to one house (change plans and amend consent) (e) clear the site and build a block of flats, likely three units. Apparently you may be able to add another dwelling in the rear yard, subject to council approval. If you decide on options a, b or c then a firewall is required between A and B and on the east wall (neighbouring dwelling).
Fully fenced (great fence) with a nice, flat, sunny north facing rear yard. Great location on the corner of tree-lined Baker Street with lots of shops and services, and only a short commute to the Esplanade, South Dunedin shopping centre or the CBD.
