Ignore the half finished paint job! The striking kerb appeal and irresistible location confirm what you already know - savvy buyers with skill, style and vision will be itching to restore No 2 Browning St back to nobility.
This circa 1910 character villa enjoys a stately position at the top of Browning Street and sits on a unique 501m2 section, offering useable land front and rear.
Expected early century characteristics include high stud, native timber floorboards, period glasswork and a classic wrap around balcony.
The master suite has multiple windows overlooking the stunning 'plane' trees on the road front berm. The classic tiled fireplace is definitely a keeper, and the newly updated walk in robe and nicely spec'd ensuite provide separation from the family. There's two further large sized bedrooms and a family bathroom with claw foot bath, with plenty of scope to add your own touches.
The spacious kitchen has gas cooking and open plan dining with easy access to the rear deck which overlooks the garden. The easy-to-tame terrain lends itself to a garden of eden conversion and is fully fenced for child and canine peace of mind.
As expected, the separate lounge has beautiful ceiling detail, a wood-burner and direct access to the wrap around balcony.
Living in Grey Lynn means most of your needs can be catered for within a 5 km radius. Kick start the weekend with yoga in Surrey Cres, head to the weekend Farmers Market, grab a short black at the well attended coffee houses in the West Lynn Precinct with only a short drive to the Richmond Road line-up of various design stores and Farro Foodstore.
An E-bike or scooter will work well for the short commute to work in the CBD and the kids can walk to Grey Lynn Primary and Ponsonby Intermediate with only 1.5 km to Western Springs College and 1.7 km to Auckland Girls Grammar.
