Top 10 Do-Ups

Posted: 09 Sep 2015 09:05 PM PDT

(1)Take some cues from the current owners of this 6 bedroom home and add your own flair to this 911m2 site. Renovate this villa and enjoy one of the largest sites in Ponsonby.

Boasting detailing from a bygone era this home is simply screaming out for a much needed make over. Redefine indoor-outdoor flow the way you like, you have an opportunity to rewrite the rules for your own dream home. A huge oversized stud and magnificently wide hallway give a real sense of space as soon as you enter this colossal villa. The possibilities are endless.


(2)An incredibly rare opportunity to indulge your flair and create the home of your dreams in one of Epsom's favourite Grammar Zone avenues. Original features like leadlight windows and handsome beamed ceilings in the lounge make for a character treat. From the broad entry porch to the welcoming entry hall, all the spaces feel enormous. Off the dining area, an enormous kitchen overlooks a sundrenched swimming pool. Fruit trees are overflowing all over the lawns. There's a double garage and spacious utility room plus masses of parking. Ready and waiting, just add your vision.



Enjoy an easy stroll to Ponsonby from this big flat 455m2 property, elevated on the sunny side of the street. The existing four bedroom cottage has a large kitchen, one bathroom plus a little garden shed to the rear. It needs attention, but there are options for someone with vision. Potential to live in and do up. Potential to develop and gain from the appeal of the large flat section in a magnificent location. Potential to land bank and rent out. Utilise your creative flair here and you will be rewarded with amazing sunsets and a relaxed city lifestyle.



This unique property is finally up for sale! Opened in 1926 as the local Plunket and Ladies Rest Rooms its original art deco features will appeal to many. Situated on the Main Street of Pahiatua, it's just a short walk to the shops. Commercially zoned (with required upgrades) this building could be set up as a retail business. Transform it into an incredible modern townhouse, a weekend retreat, or even an art gallery; let your imagination run wild. Don't miss the opportunity to view the iconic Plunket Rooms.



This project is not for the fainthearted! 380m2 spread over 3 levels, this 1920s home is massive. The potential is fantastic, with many of the original features of the home intact; however the real prize is the view, expansive from the Harbour Bridge across to Rangitoto. Renovate the current house back to its former glory and you will end up with an amazing family home or perhaps even talk to the council about other redevelopment options and reap a reward for your hard work.




If you are innovative and have an inclination for an incline, 30 West End Rd presents a cool architectural challenge with a twist and 'acres' of upside. Work from home with the best studio potential in town while you plan your next step or simply buy and hold – 1853m2 of rare Herne Bay land could be worth it. Who knows what you could do with a kitchen like this – from retro chic to a total do-over. For that bold creative mind, an opportunity like this will have you artfully whipping up concept after concept.



Right in the heart of Beach Haven is a prime site stretched over 1000m2 which represents a golden opportunity for redevlopment, for investors and owner occupiers alike. Zoned for Mixed Housing Suburban under the new Unitary Plan, the property is ideally suited to subdivision into two generous sized land parcels both now and in the future. The 1960's 3 bedroom weatherboard and clay tiled roof home currently on the site is prime for immediate renovation. With some cosmetic redecoration and a touch of inspiration this would make an excellent investment while future plans are considered.



Wonderful character features abound, this traditional family bungalow with bay lead light windows & character ceilings is completely original and ripe for renovation. Currently tenanted, this property is in the heart of a fantastic Grammar Zone location. Sitting on over 800 m2, it's ripe and ready for someone to walk on in and restore it to its former character chic, or use the opportunity to start something completely new.



Devonport's golden triangle has given up one of its treasures. Just when you thought you had seen the last of the good buys, say hello to a brand new beginning. Nestled away in a beautiful, quiet and leafy location, this perfectly formed 2 bedroom brick and tile home is in need of TLC. The location doesn't get much better than this, an easy stroll to the waterfront cafes and the golden sands of Cheltenham Beach. Lived in and very well loved, time has taken its toll and cosmetic refurbishment is required to make the most of this stunning location. Don't let this one go without a fight, it's worth it.



All this needs is an enthusiastic owner with some renovation flair. I am what you see – 2 double bedrooms, small office, and a large front lounge plus large dining room off the kitchen. It's your choice how you use all the space. The section will be easy to maintain, just 400 m2 with parking at the front and an old garage-workshop out in the sunny backyard. This is an estate sale so it must be sold – don't delay – bring your rose tinted glasses and view today.
