For sale for the first time in 61 years. Set on Matai Road is a brick garage with No 40 on it, little do you know at this point that this lovely wide driveway leads you to an expansive 1223m2 of flat freehold sunny land. You may think that Hansel and Gretel used to live here but in fact it was designed and built by Philip Vautier Architect for his family in the 1940s. Like some post war cottages there are still treasures throughout the house with a Georgian flavour like the fire place in the sitting room, the paneling and bookcases. Currently configured as 3 bedrooms one bathroom (one bedrooms with its own powder room) and two living spaces the options are endless to retain or redevelop. For those wanting to raise their children on the kiwi quarter acre this is a dream come true with its fruit trees, garden sheds, bird bath and great school zones not to mention handy to everything. Alternatively rent out while you make your plans to extend, build new or develop the entire site into possibly 4 town houses. Located in Mixed Housing Suburban Zone with your own driveway the options are plentiful. Easy access north or south with motorways nearby and endless public transport options.
