Unique Power Substation for sale

A unique opportunity to own this decommissioned power substation, circa 1930s. Located approximately 16km from the Millwater motorway exit and nestled in the Makarau countryside.

The two solid concrete buildings are monumental in scale and with their original facades they present with grandeur. The main residence has been converted to a cosy two bedroom home, while the large outside deck has clear vinyl plastic covers for extra living space all year round. This sub-station is a blank canvas, and inside and out there is scope for a design savvy buyer to move straight in and renovate to create their dream home.

With two titles on the freehold site, this distinctly different property comes to market for the first time in 35 years.

Set on just over one hectare and made into three paddocks, there is a treasure trove of garden to explore. The grounds are studded with mature trees and a plentiful orchard produces the likes of kiwifruit, pine nuts and plums. The rambling landscape is full of eclectic garden ornaments, there is even a coal oven in the rustic outside kitchen area.

The outbuildings include two garages and a lean too, giving ample space for tools and machinery. A separate shed behind the house has the option to be renovated. Grassy paddocks provide the opportunity to graze animals.

The semi-rural setting is superb, enjoy the fresh air and pristine landscape of New Zealand's stunning countryside. In zone for Orewa College and located on the rural school bus route.

This one of a kind property is a home that has been cherished and loved. But the time for change has come, and our vendors are determined to reach a result on, if not before, auction day.

This opportunity is waiting for someone with vision who is looking for a passion project! Viewing is a must, don't miss out, this must be sold.
