Options aplenty in a prime location
In a prime location where real estate is as safe as houses, this two-title property excites on so many levels. Its combined 3,710sqm of land has subdivision potential and the family home captures stunning scenery of the city, Lake Rotorua, and Mokoia Island. A home with history, the 1950s three-bedroom brick dwelling was one of the original Hunt family homes. Filled with love and happy memories, the home has nurtured a lot of life. The gardens and birdlife were a source of pride and joy to Mrs Hunt, and the old chicken coop, trees and citrus varieties are reminders of days gone by. While the home is original, it is tidy and very liveable. Kitchen, dining, living, and sunroom have natural flow and provide ample space for daily rituals, entertaining and relaxation. Bedrooms, bathroom, and powder room are quietly separated. The laundry is family-sized, and the double garage is stand-alone. The topography of the land makes it possible to retain the original dwelling yet easily create two sites across the front of it, both of which would have a splendid outlook. Two new, cleverly designed dwellings would not impede on the existing house or its views. Other possibilities include removing the house and starting from scratch, bringing to life a dream home with jaw-dropping views; modernising the existing home and adding value to a sure-fire investment; landbanking, or simply enjoying the space and lifestyle afforded by the property and its superbly convenient location, five minutes from everywhere. Options are numerous, the future is promising, and the opportunity rare.
