Original toilet still there in sisters’ century-old home

A tiny, almost untouched 100-year-old cottage with its original toilet and bath still under the house will likely sell for close to $1 million, despite needing a major renovation.
Sisters Rehutai Gundry, 90, and Fay Gundry, 88, lived at the two-bedroom home all their lives until recently moving into a resthome.
Their brother Ian Squire, who is selling the 80sq m property at 66 Palmerston Rd, said they are thought to have been one of the first Maori families in the Birkenhead Point area.
