68 Kings Avenue, Matua NZ
Deceased Estate Development Site
If the walls could talk then the stories would be rich with happy times of family gatherings and regular trips down to the nearby foreshore to search for shells and watch the dog chasing seagulls. And now this absolute rarity on a blue ribbon avenue in Tauranga’s preeminent suburb is ready for new stories. The colossal more than quarter acre section of 1027 sqm (approx.) is flat, accessible, and oriented to the north, setting the scene for a range of exciting ideas after due diligence is complete. This is a project for developers or passionate renovators as the existing 140 sqm (approx.) dwelling with consented granny flat has seen better days.
The mostly weatherboard 1960s built single level home has the detached sleepout at the rear of the property similarly clad. Still displaying a range of features from ensuing decades, there’s exposed original native timber flooring in the three bedroom house where high raked ceilings soar above the time-capsule kitchen and large lounge with fireplace. The bedrooms share an original bathroom with separate toilet while the granny flat has a sun deck off the lounge, a kitchenette, one bedroom, and bathroom with shower, toilet and vanity combined. A freestanding garage comprises lean-to workshop and rumpus room. The rambling gardens are well established with a dazzling array of mature fruit trees, grape vines and flowering tropical foliage which could, if desired, be retained to enhance the site.
Within minutes of top community amenities including Fergusson Park, waterside boardwalks, Matua Café, tennis courts, bowling club and community hall, with zoning for sought-after Matua School the icing on the cake. A short drive to both Cherrywood Village and Bureta for shopping and a swift commute to the city by car or bus, this exceptional property is a deceased estate and must be sold come auction day.
