NEW LISTING

OPPORTUNITY…OPPORTUNITY…OPPORTUNITY… the new property ‘mantra’ as far as this little gem is concerned. Here we have a small but lovely, clean, bright Cottage with reception diner, open plan well fitted kitchen with breakfast bar opening onto the living room, good sized master bedroom, shower room, second single bedroom with ensuite shower room, inner lobby having useful storage space and electric hot water heater, stairs to first floor partly covered verandah that opens out to a great fully tiled and supported party deck/sun terrace having great views of the surrounding countryside. This floor is supported by concrete beams, so is ready prepared for further building if required. Another feature of this great entertaining deck is there is a door into a fully fitted summer kitchen.  With separate access, there is a very sweet little Cottage adjoining with one double bedroom, shower room, living room and lovely fitted kitchen breakfast room.  Adjoining both the larger Cottage and the single bedroom Cottage is a registered 8 room Ruin where one can build onto either of the existing cottages or make one large home or just make a further pretty cottage. The property is held under two urban titles and therefore allows for this property to be shared and owned by friends possibly with a limited budget.  The property is accessed directly off of the IC1 and the short unpaved road swings up round to a good level parking area for at least 4 cars.  Another driveway track can be created directly from the IC1, which could open up all sorts of possibilities. The original old farmhouse would have formed a number of homes and indeed still has two further adjoining cottages…one has been vacant for many years. The property benefits from borehole water.  Three homes for the price of one!
