OWN A SLICE OF NEW ZEALAND HISTORY - "FIRTH COTTAGE"
 

9 KITCHENER ROAD, TAKAPUNA
 

This eclectic piece of New Zealand History is being offered to the Market for the first time since the 1920s. This iconic property and the story behind it is very well documented. The opportunity to secure it is a very rare and exciting one.
 

The property offers direct access to the waterfront and is comprised of 1,072 sqm of land with generous 3.5 meter (approx.) wide access from Kitchener Road to the cottage below. The views that the land benefits from are breathtaking and the relationship and connection with the water are very intimate. Thorne Bay is literally just a moment's walk from the property, one of the most picturesque Beaches on the North Shore. On offer with the said land is the original cottage known as "Firth Cottage" which is ripe for renovation to restore it to its former glory. The property was originally purchased by the Firth family in the 1920s as a Bach, but they loved the feel and relaxed environment of the property and its surroundings so much that they made it their permanent home.
 

There is an opportunity for a custodian or perhaps a group of custodians to get together and secure a piece of NZ history. There could be motivation for the successful buyer to restore public access to the North Shore walkway by donating the land back for public use. The purchase comes with a "category A" heritage listing on the cottage, so buyers need to consider and investigate this as a part of their due diligence.  
 

TENDER CLOSES 24TH MAY AT 4:00 PM (UNLESS SOLD PRIOR)
