Milton Berle once said that "if opportunity doesn't knock, build a door". The potential for renovation and enhancement on this home is tantalizing, especially for those with an eye for great property. This turn of the century villa is just such a property. Ten Firth Road is situated on a flat corner site that has been a well-loved member of the current owners family for the past thirty-odd years. As it stands, this stunning villa has three generous bedrooms, two bathrooms and in addition, a self-contained, one bedroom flat the perfect Home and Income. This sizeable home and income has a true charm and has the most wonderful bones with its high stud, generous proportions, central hallway north-facing garden, and still featuring its iconic kiwi garden shed. There truly is a colonial-English charm about the home that is hard to beat in our ever-modernizing world. The exterior off-street parking and garage offers perfect storage for a boat or second car and also features a loft up above the garage which would make a wonderful studio for someone with an artistic inclination perhaps an author or painter? Local Streets are named after early landowners; Williamson, Crummer Dickens, Dryden, Beaconsfield which adds to the overall ambiance of the area. With regards to the surrounding areas, Grey Lynn Park is home to the annual 3rd-Saturday-in-November Pacifica festival, and the entire suburb has a truly arty appeal about it especially considering that some of the best coffee in Auckland can be found in the many cafes and boutique eateries in Grey Lynn. The home is also just around the corner from Farro Fresh and a short walk away from the local supermarket. Also in the surrounding area, just a short walk away, is Grey Lynn Primary School. This home offers wonderful opportunities to the potential buyer, both in terms of its potential as a home for renovation and enhancement. Don't miss the opportunity to make this wonderful home your new home.
