Authentic meets Organic!

SOLD - This listing was sold in October 2019
A welcoming tree-lined driveway leads you to this timeless 1950's classic, set on a secluded rear garden setting of 1429sqm (including share of driveway). With extension and renovation over the years, this comfortable warm family home has been a happy home as my owners children have grown up in this family-friendly neighbourhood. Positioned amongst an array of great school zones (Somerfield School, Thorrington, Christchurch South Intermediate and Cashmere High) means you can settle here for some time and relax in the comfort and tranquility of this rare setting. Handy to shops, caf├ęs and amenities, you'll love the close proximity to the port hills for scenic walking and biking tracks.

A generously sized open plan lower lounge with french doors greets you on entry. Take a few steps up to the family room and you won't want to leave the inviting heat of the wood burner. An office nook is cleverly positioned between both living areas, enjoying the many conversations around it. The kitchen is authentic in its originality yet timeless in it's efficient functionality. You can see the Cashmere Hills from the kitchen window or watch the children playing amongst the high producing organic garden, where you're sure to find the children feasting on the fruit trees. 5 bedrooms (2 with doors to outdoor living areas) and 2 bathrooms make this a great family home to grow into and to have guests stay.

Garden enthusiasts will love the prolific leafy garden with an array of fruit trees and numerous specimen trees, along with room to grow your own vegies in this proudly organic and futile soil. With a double garage and extra parking, you'll have room for the boat, trailer or the kids cars.

I recommend you view this property quickly as it's got that long term settled feeling about it and this might just be the very home you're looking for!
