23 Franklin Street
LARGE AND SPACIOUS. THE DUCHESS OF DALMORE
Deadline Sale 6/2/19, 5pm (unless sold prior)
Available for the first time in 55 years this much loved and impeccably maintained family home is a special find.
Situated on a quiet street where most homes are owner occupied this represents great buying as the location is popular and convenient, with proximity to the University, Hospital, and CBD.
With 4-bedrooms plus a study/ sunroom and 2-living areas this is the ideal family home or rental property. Three of the bedrooms are in the main house and the fourth is a separate freestanding unit in the back of the property. The back room has its own w/c and could be used to gain some extra rental income, as a home studio/office, or perhaps a teenage hangout.
A large separate lounge at the front enjoys fabulous views from Flagstaff to the Otago Harbour, across Dunedin city, and out to sea and provides that extra space for family to spend time together. The main living room at the rear includes areas for kitchen and dining and is well designed for family living.
This 1920’s dwelling has been solidly and well built using native timbers and concrete piles giving the property a sense of quality with the all floors being straight and true.
This a thermally efficient and warm home designed to weather the Dunedin cold winters. As well as receiving good sun, heat is produced from two woodburners, two heatpumps, and a hallway nightstore heater, made more effective by HRV ventilation and insulation in some walls, ceilings, and under the floor.
Although very liveable as-is, the potential to alter and/or modernise and add value is an appealing feature of this 170 square metre house. The kitchen and carpets which scream 1960s retro overlay wooden flooring. The interior décor is mostly in neutral tones with glowing Rimu accents.
The bathroom with modern slide shower over bath, basin, heater, and extractor fan is centrally located. There is a separate w/c and laundry room. Plans to connect the two areas are available.
For vehicle security or storage this property includes two immaculate single garages both with auto doors.
The garden is well established with its front rockery, rear lawn, glasshouse, and rear courtyard; providing space for outdoor living and play.
This is an estate sale and all offers will be considered.
Your inspection is recommended as soon as possible as properties like this don’t last long in this market.
A property pack including a LIM and electrical reports is available.
