Affordable Family-Retirement Living
Finding affordable properties in this region is becoming increasingly difficult, but here's a home for buyers who want to put their first foot on the property ladder or release some capital in order to enjoy retirement perhaps? 140 King Edward Street is an extremely tidy stucco residence with sturdy bones that won't fail to tempt those on a tight budget seeking a leasehold gem.
Comprising three light and airy bedrooms - each with robes; a bathroom and shower, a separate toilet and a laundry, this is a recently refreshed traditional and well-proportioned residence with a 107m floor-plan and plenty of scope for a further revamp to make her your own. The open-plan living areas comprise a lounge-diner with an attractive freestanding lady kitchener log burner and wet back. Part of the original hall has a run of closets and this has been thoughtfully combined with the lounge thereby extending it, giving a larger and more useable living area. The adjoining kitchen has a modern freestanding electric cooker and features solid timber joinery along with a new benchtop recently installed. In addition, a sun porch and a covered verandah offer additional indoor/outdoor seating spaces providing a link to the expansive and secluded grounds (almost a quarter of an acre), where there are a range of mature shrubs and trees, all trimmed well back and ready for the spring.
If you have vehicles there's off-street parking and a generous carport, plus there's a garden implement shed and some space under the verandah to store your hobby gear.
The property's location is really convenient, too. You can cycle or drive to Motueka High Street in a few minutes for shopping, cafes, schools, the library and more besides. And if you love the 'great outdoors' the property is also handy for some wonderful mountain biking trails and a range of picturesque, safe and sandy beaches. Couples, young families and investors will spot the value here in an instant. It's a great family-sized 'starter home' so call me for a viewing.
