Space to Splash Out
Located in Motueka's favourite street this expansive property is perfect for a large family or purchasers who are considering a work-home lifestyle.
Set amid 3763m² of flat grounds 172 Thorp Street is a 260m² residence with generous living and dining space, a near-new and very well-appointed kitchen, a master suite, four guest bedrooms; a family bathroom with a separate toilet, a laundry, study, hobby room - and the luxury of an outdoor swimming pool!
Built in the 1960s the home still has some of the original vintage décor in situ, so if you wanted to honour the 'retro chic' look that's a great starting point, however, there's plenty of scope for you to restyle her at your leisure.
The grounds are arranged to be surprisingly easy-care given their size and they comprise a large lawn, established trees and shrubs, raised vegetable beds, a glasshouse, a garage and a shed. The pool area and terrace provide delightful places to relax in the sun to admire the views of the Western Ranges, while the driveway affords plenty of space for vehicles, a boat, caravan or motorhome. And there's still ample room left over for whatever else you fancy!
The vendors ran this home as a bed and breakfast in the past; and indeed, the current floorplan lends itself very well to that option, as there's space to use one of the bedrooms as a guest lounge if preferred. The property is close to the main highway, the golf course, cycle trails, beaches and the township itself, so capitalising on tourism is a viable option. Working from home could be a good plan too, as there's a study along with parking for any visiting clients.
You could drive by and take a peek at this home from the kerbside however, to fully appreciate the scope of this property and the opportunity which exists here you need to view. The 'curved ball' of 2020 is behind us and it's time to look to the future. Call me now!
