Freehold in Foxton - Cosy 2-Bedroom Cottage!!!

Diamond in the rough!!! This is a two bedroom cottage on a private freehold rear section with a large single garage. Currently tenanted, it would respond well to painting, some TLC and an upgraded fence for even more privacy. It has a cobblestone path, lawn area, garden and some more land which goes up a hill behind it. The garage has electricity and would respond to upgrading. The house has lots of windows. A viewing of this property is essential, because some of these photos were taken in 2016 and the garden is not as cared for. The trees at the back have now been cut down, so more sun and light gets to the back of the property now. It certainly does need some tidying and painting and a bit of creativity and this is reflected in the asking price.

There is some uncertainty on council records associated with this property. There is no building permit on file for the original house when built in the 1950's. The permit for the garage is on the neighbouring property file and in the process of being changed over by Council. So, its not completely clean, but a great opportunity for someone to tidy it up and clean it up!

Foxton township is commuting distance to Palmerston North and also 1.5 hours from Wellington, the Capital City. There are cafes, beaches, large reserve areas, and some job opportunities in Foxton and it is becoming a popular retirement area.

Currently has a tenant paying $175 per week and a property manager conducting regular inspections. There is a pile of wood on the property from when the trees were cut down.

This is a solid house which has had recent insulation added, and has a nice cosy feel about it. Come and see if this property is the one for you, or you want to add it to your portfolio. There is a shortage of accommodation in this area.
