Fancy Weekends in LA?

Little Akaloa that is! Forget jetlag and passports, just 90 minute's drive from Christchurch discover a very well-kept secret. Enjoying easy access to a sheltered harbour for kayaking, paddle boarding and aquatic pursuits, you'll wonder why you didn't embrace the delights of L.A. sooner.

Call us biased, but with stunning panoramic views and incredible entertaining options, our subject property is arguably the best in the bay. Designed by Chaplin Crooks Architects and completed in 2014 by owners passionate about architecture and sustainability, you'll be captivated by the combination of cutting edge design and boho chic. Living can be separate or open, while a study provides further options. Keen hosts will appreciate the kitchen design; easily accommodating gatherings large or small, while the separate butler's pantry aids no fuss meal prep. All bedrooms are genuine doubles, with seamless storage throughout. Embrace relaxed country living, with vast covered BBQ area, a huge wraparound deck and balconies off all bedrooms for the perfect morning outlook.

Precast concrete panels & cedar ensure your haven is low maintenance with incredible passive heating and cooling options, including solar powered water/underfloor heating and a wetback for winter comfort.

While the home offers an idyllic lifestyle worthy of an exclusive designer bach; given its scale and comfort you may well choose to reside here full time. You'll have no shortage of visitors and, should you feel the need for a little retail or caffeine therapy, Duvauchelle and Akaroa are just a few minutes over the hill. Those searching for the good life will appreciate the productive olive grove, spring-fed water supply and 1 hectare land parcel which includes well-fenced paddocks & outbuildings. A self-contained cottage provides a further income stream, or overflow for the inevitable influx of family and friends.

Our sellers' family circumstances now dictate a dramatic change of scenery, as city life beckons in 2020. With breathtaking views and a lifestyle second to none, we predict your next weekend drive may just transform your life!
