I doubt the new owners will restore that wooden heap - it's more likely that they wanted the land to build a modern monstrosity on or even a block of flats.

I don't know what the deal is with Heritage properties but I imagine it will end up like this one: Take a tour of the extreme makeover house | Stuff.co.nz which appears to just have retained just the original street front for appearance and then has the super modern / glassy house behind the facade.

Interest rates are only going lower and the LVR buffers have only delayed demand that is now coming back, this may well appear a steal shortly.
