About this listing

SOLD - This listing was sold in February 2019.

The definition of 'foothold' reads...a secure position, a firm basis for further development and we don't think we could find a more fitting description for this most affordable and charming little villa.

This rare find is entry-level buying into a very desirable location. It will be sure to attract those savvy buyers wanting to build a modern new home or make a future investment as a land bank. It is equally worthy as a delightful and sound abode for a small family. The property is firmly within the Girls' and Boys' High School zones and Ilam Primary School and is minutes away from the University of Canterbury.

Character features abound, including pretty fretwork and ceiling roses, lovely timber floors and stained glass windows. Renovation has allowed a lovely flow from kitchen through dining to living with 2 bay windows facing the north and west. 584sqm provides lawn at the front and a sheltered sun-drenched rear courtyard garden to be enjoyed from the old-style verandah...the perfect breakfast and lunch spot.

Well maintained by the same family for the last 35 years, the house has recently been re-carpeted, with a new bathroom and 3 heat pumps; offering comfort and security for years to come. However some may find the temptation of a smallish and affordable site becoming available too much to resist for the construction of a beautiful new home. Whatever your motivation, rest assured this family are ready to pass onto another and this property will be sold on or before Auction day!
