81 Knowles Street (between Rutland Street and Papanui Road) is situated in a position that warrants a special project whether it be renovation, or for the extreme; building. Within the Christchurch Girls' and Boys' High, Paparoa and Heaton School zones you couldn't deny the appropriateness of this for a family home location. The city is also only a 15 minute cycle away or a 10 minute drive and the Merivale hub is only a short walk to a long black. The current owners work schedule meant they never quite got to realise their renovation dreams for this home during their twelve years in ownership but they hope the next owner will. As an indication as to how extremely motivated they are to move on from this they have already purchased something else!
There will be a $34,074 EQC payout credited to the new owner and the home is insured. The current layout includes three large bedrooms plus a fourth office or playroom, bathroom, laundry, two w/c's, semi open plan living, dining and kitchen. The outside boasts a double garage and a studio room that has been converted into a functional workspace, including insulation and internet. How you would reconfigure the layout is up to you, retain the character, inject your personality, honour the history or cherish the future? This is a home that offers many possibilities, and one certainly worth exploring further, view today.
Key Details: 658sqm section, TC3, RV$750,000, $34,074 EQC cash settlement to be credited to the new owner. Quick settlement available. Part of the home was extended in the 1990's so is a more modern addition.
