Almost a half hectare of land less than 15 kilometres from Auckland CBD is up for grabs.

A fully renovated three-bedroom weatherboard house on 4527sq m at 43C Verbena Rd in Birkdale is up for sale by negotiation.

The capital value for the property when it was last valued in 2014 was $710,000, according to Auckland City Council.

According to homes.co.nz, a 1209sq m section with a 110sq m 1970s home on the same road sold for $800,000 last June.

Ray White agent Tatjana Day said demand for property in the suburb had grown quickly in the past three years because of its affordability, access to public transport and proximity to the city.

"With Birkenhead Village and several beaches also close by, Birkdale is becoming more popular with growing families," she said.

"The typical block size is around 700 to 800sq m. The fact that we're offering over 4500sq m really is quite rare. You really don't see that coming up very often."

Day said the buyer could comfortably live in the house while potentially building multiple properties on the remaining land.

"The most amazing thing is that you will be able to see your development being built right before your eyes from where you are standing on the balcony and looking out over your land."

The house is tucked down a quiet driveway.

The property's vendor, Chantelle Mabin said the property was quiet and peaceful.

"It's tucked down a quiet driveway so feels like a hideaway within an urban environment. It is lovely hearing the tui and other native birds in the mornings."

The house has a brand-new kitchen and bathroom, new carpet, joinery, doors and balcony, as well as being painted inside and out. It also has a lock-up garage, rumpus room, polished floors, heat pump and fireplace.
