Land, Land, Beautiful Land

It is one of the asset classes that is referred to when the discussion is around protecting ones wealth.

This 1722m2 section up a six metre wide drive at the top of a cul-de-sac street possesses other prime features inherent in real estate growth; location, location and a panoramic water view.

Pillans Point, Otumoetai is one of the inner-most established suburbs of Tauranga; New Zealand's fastest growing central North Island East Coast City in a region aptly named the Bay of Plenty.

Sloping gently toward the northern sun, the vista is the more sought after in the city.

The single level living approx. 177m2 *, five bedroom home with double basement garage stands straight and true sixty years on from its build, thanks to the generous use of heart native timbers. Along the northern sunny front of the home the living rooms open onto a 28m2 terrace.

With the improvement value at only 18% of the capital value (GV) the prime site is currently under capitalized. A renovation or redevelopment is beaconing. Meanwhile the home is comfortably habitable.

By day the forever changing vista from here is as diverse as the range of vessels between a P Class sailing dinghy and luxury passenger liner.

As the flashing, flickering, blinking, green, red and white guiding lights of the harbor channel markers introduces dusk another enchanting night view acquaints itself with the home.

From here the popular Pillans Point primary school is a five minute walk away. High schools are within an easy biking distance, the employment hub of the CBD is within a 3.5km radius and the white sand surf beaches of Mount Maunganui are just 7.5km (eight minutes) across the harbor.

In all ways a solid foundation upon which to improve.
