With oodles of history and my vendor able to tell you it all, the time has come for action as the days are numbered for this historic wee house. Back in the day it was where the horse drawn coach used to pull up and tickets were sold through the window to patrons about to embark on a coach ride into Dunedin to watch a show - the ticket was all inclusive. Surrounding the cottage were paddocks where the large horses were let off to graze during the day. These days Dawn, my vendor, sits on the verandah and contemplates the past and waves to the passers by in this idyllic seaside town.

After 30 years, Dawn is off to reside with family further up country and here is your opportunity to buy this property complete with the real gold, the section underneath! At 523sq.m this property is the perfect size for those who want to build a home across the road from the beach. In fact you are on the doorstep of paradise as Dawn would say, with the track across the road that leads to the surf, the road that leads right to the playground and around to Brighton township, or left and up to the fish and chip shop and into Dunedin, 15 minutes beyond.

The home is entirely livable and will last a few years yet with the partially renewed roof, so spend a few summers in this 2/3 bedroom home and then build your masterpiece when the time is right. Let your kids or grand kids play at the beach, build sand castles or surf until the heart's content. Walk around to the Brighton shop and café or cycle down to Taieri Mouth for fresh fish.

Come along and see your new section, your character cottage and your exciting future. I will sell you a ticket to the greatest show on earth....the doorstep to paradise. 852 Brighton Road is for sale By Negotiation and possession flexible, but preferably soon!
