Built in the 1880's, urban legend has it that she was hauled up from the valley below by a team of bullocks around 1900 to her present resting place in the peaceful rural village of Pollok.
The solid Kauri home has large open-plan living, dining and kitchen areas and two large size double bedrooms. It still features all the original ceilings and windows. It has been rewired, re-piled and lined and was recently retrofitted with ceiling insulation, heat pump and had underground power installed.
There is an old double garage and a partly-completed games room or studio, plus an old 1950's outbuilding which could be done up or demolished.
Set back from the road in her tranquil and private setting, she proudly sits amongst nearly half an acre (1743m²) of fully fenced, mature rambling gardens filled with Tui's, Wood Pigeons and the song of many other birds.
Out the back, two chickens free range among an orchard of plums, peach, pears, apples, quince, persimmon and almond. Another area has Globe and Jerusalem artichokes.
Yes, she's a little tired but she is waiting for the right person to come along, redecorate and make her their own. Her heart-kauri 'bones' are sound and should be good for another 140 years.
If you are looking for that something special, with both Charm and Character that would respond well to finishing her make over - then here she is.
