About this listing

SOLD - This listing was sold in November 2018.

How fortunate are we to be living in Canterbury where a property can seem 'a million miles away' yet is only 20 minutes from Christchurch airport. Such is 52 Gatehouse Lane, where Rangiora and Kaiapoi are a five minute drive away and schools are also very local.

For those who dream about country living where you can live the good life and create your own lifestyle or just live in peace and quiet, then this could be what you have been waiting for.

Originally our owners farmed this area and now rich in soil type, an abundance of options exist for the use of the land. The sheltered home and garden is complemented with two paddocks which are currently grazed.

The home and garden is set back on the site and is close enough to the boarder of established trees to feel a sense of privacy and shelter.

The home was built for the current owners in 2005. Using macrocarpa milled from the farm the foyer ceiling, doors and joinery are quite a feature. The living spaces all open to the garden as do two of the four large bedrooms. From these rooms you are reminded of the beauty of rural life as expansive views from the property extend over rich, green pasture to Mt Grey and the Kaikoura range. The big sky a feature itself, in all kinds of weather.

Lifestyle living always requires tools and machinery so there is plenty of storage and space for hobbies in the large three bay shed. One bay of the shed has a concrete pad for heavier vehicles and a secure garage door.

Life has been blissful for our owners on their land, in a home designed by them, however health dictates a move to smaller quarters. What good fortune for you, with youth and energy you can live a life only a few can achieve. Come and see what we have on offer and dream about your future, but only for a moment as this property could sell on or before the Deadline.
