Top pick for investment or first-home buyers

An affordable, tidy two bed on a popular street, this mid-1960s sturdy red brick home has plenty of mid-century charm and scope for modernisation.

Buyers nostalgic for simpler times will fall in love with the kitchen. With floor to ceiling spearmint green cabinetry, a timber benchtop and Formica-topped breakfast bar, it is classic mid-century Kiwiana.

Two true double bedrooms, each with built-in wardrobe and big windows, are sunny and welcoming. The home has one bathroom with shower and bath; it's clean but dated so there's room to add value here with new fixtures, tiling and paint. A separate toilet and separate laundry with tub meet the needs.

There's lovely feel and flow from the kitchen to the dining area which is surprisingly spacious in this modestly-sized home. The separate lounge is sunny and roomy and features the original timber-framed doors, giving this room a cosy feel.

A sun porch at the entrance is yet another charming, retro character feature.

At just 110sqm (approx.) and with a log burner in the lounge and ceiling insulation, the home is warm and affordable to heat.

Timber joinery, neutral decor, tidy carpeting and great natural light throughout make this a very rentable and liveable home.

It will appeal to first-home buyers, small families, retirees and investors looking for a reliable rental.

A sunny and generous backyard, on a 1,012sqm section, is a great blank canvas ready for the buyer to put their stamp on: build the kids a fort? Plant Xmas lilies to sell at the gate? Establish a potager and grow all your own greens- the options are there.

And a double garage with workshop, sealed driveway, and off-street parking complete the package.

This home is in a friendly neighbourhood and within walking distance to shops and amenities in Darfield township, including both the primary and high school.

Septic tank. Town water supply.
