A very pretty start to home ownership can begin here. This original 1970's home has been designed and built with extra low maintenance in mind. Already comfortable for everyday living the house would respond well to a cosmetic make over and/or reconfiguration of space. For any aficionado of 70's style this is a true gem.
Presently the home is set up as 1 bedroom, a double walk in wardrobe, bathroom, open plan kitchen/dining and adjacent living room. There is internal access to a single garage with auto door. On the 506m2 section there is also a fully permitted and refurbished modern sleepout complete with electricity and new carpet, which would make a fabulous studio/office. Perfect for a work from home situation or it could work equally well as a sleeping space for guests. The sleepout has its own entrance.
With ceiling batts, some insulated walls and polystyrene insulation under the floor, this is a cosy home. Aside from electric water heating there is a solar water heating system with a new pump. Noirot heaters (French convection heaters with a lifetime replacement warranty) have been installed for winter warmth and the kitchen has a ceramic top stove and new extractor fan.
The section is nicely planted and low maintenance. This elevated but level part of Kaka Road runs parallel to the main road beside the harbour and as well as getting the first morning sun each day, the kitchen also has a small harbour view. The west facing parts of the house capture the last of the sun in the evening.
This is an opportunity to secure a private and peaceful spot only 15 mins drive from the CBD, Hospital and University, or cycle safely along the off road cycleway to town. The St Leonards Playcentre and Primary school are walking distance nearby and the bus service runs every 30 minutes Monday to Friday. This is a world away from the noise and bustle of the world and could provide the haven or opportunity you have been searching for.
