If you're looking for a starter home, something to turn into your forever home, or even an investment; and, you'd ideally like it located in a sought after suburb, then you had better get moving to Melrose Road, Island Bay!

This 1960's gem has a lot to offer growing families in need of a little extra space. There are three good sized bedrooms with built-in storage plus; there's a room downstairs currently used as a bedroom which could be a second living, a rumpus, a teenage hangout, a place to run a home-based business, or whatever you want it to be.

With tonnes of originality still intact, yet extremely tidy and well kept, this house is ripe for renovation. You could comfortably move straight in and then renovate in your own good time. The semi open-plan kitchen, dining and living areas are light, bright and leave you many options for future configurations. There is also an I/A garage and a perfectly sized section - there's a lot to work with!

Conveniently located within a 10-minute walk from public transport, local shops, eateries, supermarket, cinema, medical centre, and the school, you'll have easy access to everything your family needs and more. The house, combined with the location, gives you plenty of scope to make this your forever family home.
