Description

Rich in character and opportunity


With a rich historical pedigree, this character villa is a Frankleigh Park landmark, and even if the house isn't familiar, the magnificent Kauri tree out front is well-known in its own right. It was planted by the original owner in 1905 to commemorate the birth of his son and now takes pride of place as the largest Kauri in Taranaki.

Built in the early 1900s, this was the dwelling of local businessman William Bendall, who also helped to acquire local parks as public reserves, including nearby Huatoki Domain.

Owned by the current owner for over 60 years, it's now time to hand over the guardianship reigns. This wonderful home has significant character with original features and incredible bones, but it's ready and waiting for someone to roll up their sleeves and restore it for future generations.

Complementing the quaint allure of this villa is its position across the road from the Frankleigh Park shops, including popular Ruby Cafe and the fitting Mid Century Found, specialising in mid-century collectables. Children will love a later sleep in, as Woodleigh Primary is only a 300 metre walk away.

Play a starring role in creating your future with this wonderful slice of the past.

To be auctioned on Friday 17th of December, 2021 at 1pm (unless sold prior), Bayleys Office, 15 Courtenay Street, New Plymouth.
