3 Deans Avenue, Christchurch

Occupying a 761sqm (approx) plot of TC2 land in the ever-desirable environs of Strowan is this captivating double-dwelling package that's uninsured and presented to the market on an 'as is, where is' basis.

A 1940s weatherboard-and-tile classic is the primary residence and showcases a practical layout comprising two bedrooms as well as a sunroom or study. A large lounge equipped with a log burner and heat pump provides a relaxed backdrop for everyday living, while a dining area and functional kitchen round out the home's social spaces. There is significant potential to be realised, and this could be courtesy of a comprehensive renovation; however, it's anticipated buyers will see the value in building a contemporary residence from scratch in this premium setting.

A modernised studio has been fully fenced to allow for complete privacy and independence. This versatile one-bedroom retreat features a new bathroom and kitchen, with the open-plan living area also stretching out to a verandah.

This dwelling could have any number of uses; it could easily accommodate extended family living arrangements, provide an additional income stream, act as a handy base when undertaking a renovation or rebuild, or simply provide valuable land for a large family residence.

Rounding out the picture is a single garage offering secure storage. The rear studio has a fixed-term tenancy in place until 23 Mar 2023 at $335pw. The main house will have vacant possession on settlement.

This in-demand neighbourhood is ideally suited for families, boasting zoning for Fendalton Primary, Heaton and Cobham Int, Burnside High as well as Christchurch Boys' and Girls' High. There is also a range of local parks in the area, while proximity to the Normans Road shops and Merivale amplifies convenience. Potential-loaded properties in this quiet pocket of Strowan rarely come to the market, and immense levels of interest are expected.
