What was the original Tuatapere Police Station, residence with the jail still intact - a very important historic property in Tuatapere's history (if only the walls could talk). Large section, sun catching spot with plenty of historic history thrown in.

Located in a prime spot on the Southern Scenic Route. Four-bedroom family home, plus a sunroom. Has a separated bathroom, separated shower and toilet. Kitchen/dining/lounge room heated with a Matai IMF recessed multi fuel burner and electric wall heaters placed in two bedrooms and the passage. Wall panels in the hallway and beautiful feature ceiling throughout the house add to the character of the property.

Plenty of storage/man cave sheds at the back of the property. The original Tuatapere jail has been beautifully restored and converted into a self-contained one-bedroom accommodation unit with its own separate driveway.

Home has had extensive renovations completed including replied, relined, polished floors, heat transfer system installed, electrical rewired, new drapes, new kitchen & bathroom fixtures, new high pressure hot water heater and roof insulation installed.

Ideal as a first home buy, retirement opportunity or a rental or utilized as a holiday home the choices are endless.

Please note: Land and Floor area measurements are approximate, and boundary lines indicative only. All efforts have been made to source accurate information from reputable sources (i.e Regional/City councils, Propertysmarts/REINZ/Property-Guru, Core Logic etc). We cannot, however, verify its accuracy and suggest this should not replace independent clarification through standard due diligence.
