On the market for the first time in nearly 50 years, this Hauraki property presents incredible buying for developers and land bankers. Spanning 809m2 of perfectly flat, freehold land on sought-after Francis Street, the prospects and potential are exceptional, with Mixed Housing Urban zoning presenting many development possibilities.

The single-level brick and tile home was originally built in 1946, with the current owner purchasing it in 1971. She’s raised her children here and adored the family-friendly neighbourhood’s proximity to Takapuna, the beach and local parks and reserves.

Francis Street is located in a quiet cul-de-sac off popular Jutland Road, close to picturesque Northboro Reserve. It’s so loved by families due to its proximity to the local playground and café, as well as being in zone for Decile 10 Hauraki School, Belmont Intermediate, Westlake Boys and Girls and Takapuna Grammar. The Hauraki shops and supermarket are also an easy walk from home, with the golden sands of Takapuna beach just down the hill from there. A stroll along the shore arrives at Takapuna’s busy beachside hub, filled with cafes, bars, restaurant and boutiques, as well as the cinema and Bruce Mason Centre. For commuters, there’s the option of the very close Esmonde Road onramp, the excellent bus service, or catching the ferry to the CBD from the Bayswater wharf.

The three-bedroom, one-and-a-half-bathroom residence has been lovingly and immaculately maintained but is presented in largely original condition. The formal lounge is separate, with the kitchen and dining area the true hub and heart of the home. This space flows out to the deck and level lawn, which is framed with well-established gardens. There are three bedrooms found along the hallway, serviced by the main bathroom and separate toilet.

The beauty of the site are its impressive dimensions, perfectly level land and ease of access. It’s an enticing opportunity indeed for development in a well-connected, convenient and family-friendly location, or could be renovated and expanded to create a family home and true investment in the future.
