Character, Convenience, and Comfort

Character is the primary feature of this wonderful circa 1880 old dame - all grace, and cosy charm, yet furnished with modern conveniences. Helensville is known for its historic architecture so there are a few of these in the town, but none like this 3 bedroom beauty. Refurbishments were carried out some years ago, including kitchen, bathroom, wiring, plumbing, and insulation, but there is now some maintenance to do, and the owners have revised their price to accommodate this need. The roof was replaced in 2016. The old coal range is decorative only and a heat pump serves instead, while lovely wooden flooring adds to the warm atmosphere. Upstairs, the attic has been a spare bedroom and second living space, but would make a superb, generous office. A marble dropped on the floor in some parts of this gorgeous home, will roll, and the old dame has been around so long that a century of visitors crossing the threshold has created a new shape in the back door sill. Outside, the spacious property is ideal for energetic youngsters and pets. This property is on a cross-lease with a half share in 910m². For the last seven years one lucky tenant has occupied the home and has recently left and now the owners have decided to let it go. The house is in generally good condition but bring a hammer and some know-how because several weatherboards need replacement, and other bits and bobs need attention. These original old homes are really special, and this one is even better being within walking distance of schools, shops and cafes. Check this truly lovely old girl out. With the price revised downwards, now would be a good time to make an offer.
