2019 Bucket List - Tick!

SOLD - This listing was sold in December 2018
The elegant style and gracious proportions of a bygone era are the canvas for a stunning contemporary update to this family home in one of the city's most sought-after neighbourhoods. Totally refurbished to better than its former glory and across the road from St Andrew's College, in-zone for Paparoa Street Primary School, Heaton Intermediate, Christchurch Boys' High and Girls' High schools and with Merivale Village, Northlands Mall and the city all just minutes away, it's little wonder that the owners have lived in and loved this beautiful home for the past 26 years.

Step through the wide porch into the entry hall. The richness and warmth of timber flooring and stairs is offset by a palette of contemporary neutrals on the walls. A northwest orientation ensures the open-plan living and dining enjoys light and sun. A log-burner provides warmth in winter, while French doors open to a sprawling deck for summer entertaining. The modern kitchen is well-appointed with a gas cooktop and excellent storage. A large separate lounge offers great additional flexibility for family living and features an open gas fire and beautiful timber-panelled walls. Both living spaces include heat-pumps for year-round climate control.

A tranquil upstairs retreat, the master bedroom includes an en suite bathroom and the bonus of an adjoining multi use room - Three additional bedrooms upstairs are served by a full bathroom with original claw foot bath and a large percentage of this level has been retro-fitted with double glazing. Downstairs there is a separate office, fifth bedroom or dining room, plus an additional tiled bathroom.

Outside, the impressive 1,011 sqm grounds are a private parklike setting of mature gardens.
This stunning property offers an incredible opportunity to benefit from the expertise of the previous owners and secure a beautiful character home carefully renovated for contemporary living. With their children grown up, they're relocating, so this is your chance! Call today to view.
