Elegant seclusion on a large scale

Having your own estate down a secluded lane just minutes from all the shops, services, schools and cafes of Papanui and neighbouring Merivale is a rare and very desirable proposition. Even better is the opportunity to buy the neighbouring site and extend your estate from its already large 2000m² plus to more than 4000m², each on a separate title - it's your choice.

This is a substantial home in every respect. Architecturally designed by John Walker and constructed of Hebel with schist detailing, this home comprises six bedrooms, four bathrooms and multiple living areas over two levels, allowing everyone their own space whilst facilitating large scale entertaining.

Its northern aspect, multiple sets of French doors and large windows allow light and sun to flood through the home which offers a large kitchen, dining and informal living area with the rich warm colours of Jarrah flooring. Opening to large terraces, a courtyard, and surrounded by beautiful gardens landscaped by Morgan & Pollard, this classically styled home offers peace and tranquillity within park like grounds.

Full and guest bathrooms on both levels, a large separate laundry opening into an enclosed utility area and a choice of main bedrooms, one with a kitchenette and living room set up with a full scale projector and accommodation laid out in two wings offer an unprecedented number of options here, with a lift providing easy access and future-proofing. A combination of gas and electric heating, double glazing and insulation make this a warm and comfortable home regardless of the season.

In addition to all of this, the gated driveway winds around the rear of the house leading to 8 car garaging, including one of double height (great for a boat or caravan!). The specially designed workshop opening into the garage features floor to ceiling shelving and built in cabinetry, perfect for the handiest of handy men.

Exceptional in every respect and faultlessly maintained, this serene and secluded property and the opportunity of buying the adjoining grounds, will have considerable appeal to astute buyers who can see its immediate and long-term value.

Our owners have moved on and need this sold on or before auction day.
