Six-bedroom house to be given away for FREE in New Zealand

How you can get your hands on a FREE six-bedroom house complete with a spa bath and a study – but there’s a massive catch

  •  A six-bedroom, three-bathroom home is up for grabs completely free of charge
  • The stunning property is in Palmerston North, on New Zealand’s North Island
  • It was originally built in the 1950s with the second storey added in the 1980s
  • Owners had tried to sell it but no one wanted to pay relocation and renovation 

A savvy house hunter has the chance to grab a six-bedroom, three-bathroom home completely free of charge. 

There’s only one catch – you just need somewhere to put it. 

The owners of the stunning 280sqm property in Palmerston North, on New Zealand’s North Island want the house removed so they can build a new home on the land.

But instead of demolishing it, they have chosen to give it away for free.

‘The owners feel it’s just too good of a home to bowl over,’ Ray White real estate agent Stu Fleming told Stuff.

‘It’s a substantial home, to build it today it would cost up to $650,000.

‘It’s going for free but obviously you’ve got to shift it, which is a big job and put it on your site.’

The two-storey property comes complete with a Jacuzzi, a study and a garden balcony.

It was originally built in the 1950s with the second storey added in the 1980s.

The owners had tried to sell the home but there were no takers.

Mr Fleming said it failed under the hammer because of its size.

He said the home needs a considerable amount of work done and no one was willing to pay for the house, its removal and renovation costs. 

The cost to relocate and renovate the home is likely to be  about $400,000, Mr Fleming said, meaning it would still be a money-saver for anyone who made the effort.
