Would it be too greedy to expect to find a home in popular Brighton, that is both adorable and affordable, with a tranquil, idyllic native treed section just a 300 metre stroll from New Brighton Beach, where the calming sound of birdsong and distant waves gently tumbling serenade you as you wonder ‘could life get any better?’. For my sellers, 15 years of living here has proved to be as near to perfection as they could ever have hoped for, and it is with extremely heavy hearts that they now must bid farewell to this slice of Brighton paradise.

When you walk through the front gate into the securely fenced, private and deceptively sizeable section, it’s easy to see the abundant charm and character that make this early 1900s cottage so instantly loveable. The wide and deep front porch creates a covered, outdoor living zone, the ideal spot to share time with friends and family or just curl up with a book and a cup of tea, while inside, polished wooden floors create a welcoming and warm ambience. Two good-sized double bedrooms open off a short, central hallway that leads to the generous main living space and dining area and adjoining kitchen which is surprisingly spacious and thoughtfully modernised.

The centrally positioned bathroom has been tastefully updated, and towards the rear of the house sits a room that is currently utilised as a work-from-home-office, but would also function well as a child’s bedroom or playroom. With an old chicken coop now used as a storage space, a separate lock-up garage, ceiling insulation and a Panasonic heat-pump in the living area, this re-wired, re-plumbed little gem is the Kiwi dream so many people aspire to, but with the added bonus of being attainable for most first-home buyers and a good rental prospect for investors.

Builders’ report, LIM, Title, EQC scope and related documents will all be available to buyers.

First-home buyers – please view this home and talk with me about how easy it is for you to purchase this property.

Investors – high rental demand, good returns and a property that will surely appreciate over time … it all makes dollars and sense and with the market booming, you may kick yourself later if you don’t act now!

Act now to ensure this slice of paradise becomes yours.
