Rolls Royce Of Real Estate

Set at the end of a long private lane off Fendalton Road and designed by multi award winning architects Sheppard & Rout, this St Barnabas Lane home is an exceptional property in every respect. Deliberately designed to run parallel to the Avon River on its north boundary, the home has been crafted from the enduring beauty of Hinuera stone, zinc, steel, timber and glass and it spans some 647 square metres across two levels. Highly specified throughout, with technology right at the forefront, the inarguable desirability of the home starts with the soaring double height entrance gallery, with its light amplified by the glass running the length of its south side.

The main wing of the house accommodates a series of interconnecting living spaces that flow out to the expansive tiled terrace and lawn, planted with a leafy line-up of Magnolia trees at the river's edge. External timber louvre screens on sliding tracks prevent heat build-up within the north-facing spaces that include formal and family living, dining and a large kitchen. The main kitchen, dining and family living area takes full advantage of its north-facing aspect with sliding doors opening to the grounds, greatly extending the already generous entertaining spaces over summer. Like the rest of the house the kitchen comes highly specified with broad expanses of countertops in white engineered stone, an impressive line-up of appliances which include a gas hob and double oven and the adjacent butler's pantry, complete with a wine fridge.

Those who love to swim will find that weather will not be a consideration at all given that the heated swimming pool is housed in an indoor complex, opening to the grounds and connected to the main house by a double-height sunroom space. The ground floor is completed with a guest bathroom, large laundry opening to an enclosed utility area and storage and garaging space, including off-street parking. The intercom and touch pad access are part of the comprehensive security system. Upstairs there are four double bedrooms and two bathrooms including an ensuite. All the bedrooms have access to the balcony running along the north of the house and all have elevated garden views. Both fully tiled bathrooms, including the ensuite, are highly specified, with the ensuite having a free-standing European bath as well as a double shower and matt black Paffoni tapware. The family bathroom also has a bath as well as a shower and both bathrooms have under tile heating. A fully-fitted walk-in wardrobe is off the main bedroom, while the remaining three have built in cabinetry. At the far end of the first floor is a room that becomes the third living room, large office or children's media and playroom.

Having four double bedrooms, three bathrooms, three living areas and large secure grounds means this home tailor-made for family living. This is doubly so given it comes to schooling, with Christchurch Girls and Boys High Schools in the zone and in placed close proximity to Christchurch's most respected private schools.
