They say home is where the heart is, and this home is exactly where our owner's hearts lie. To the utter-most extent, they have cherished the time spent in this grandeur residence and just like any great love story, the time has come to love and leave this noteworthy property in the hopes that another will whole heartedly make home here.
Step back in time and admire this fine example of early architecture that has been elegantly restored in-keeping with its' era; sadly, a diminishing asset in post-earthquake Christchurch. Inside you will be pleasantly surprised by the extensive and admirable reclamation. From the heritage colour scheme used throughout, timber panelling, cast-iron stove and brass finishing's, it is evident that every corner of this home has been well thought-out and skilfully executed, much of which cannot be described through simple words.
Situated in a park-like setting, the backyard alone, is your own oasis away from the hustle and bustle of city living. Indulge in a daydream, perched on the veranda while watching the crepuscular light filter through the trees and children playing in the garden. Find sanctuary here, surrounded by established trees and set on a 1505m2 stream lined boundary, this is a unique and private setting that you won't want to leave.
A property of high distinction, the options of your preferred use of space are in abundance. The bonus of what once was a commercial kitchen, only adds to your investment. Location is ample, with local amenities, cafes, parks and reserves all close at hand while remaining a short distance from the CBD.
After purchasing their family heritage home, our owners are set on a new venture. Indefinitely moving on they are leaving their most prized piece or artwork in all its' glory, to be marvelled by a lucky owner. Interest is sure to be high so do not delay in your inspection, this distinctive property will and must sell on auction day, if not sooner.
