Dare to be different
Never has it been so easy to embrace a sustainable and beautiful way of life. Built in 2012, this timber-lined, Eco Lockwood home is only five minutes from the vibrant community of Tai Tapu and a short 30 minute drive to central Christchurch. Privacy from every angle. The three bedroom, two bathroom and office home is engineered to be exceptionally resilient to earthquake damage. The warm and vibrant interior has heated polished concrete floors throughout, a cathedral ceiling and large picture windows in the central kitchen (with scullery)/dining/living. Ranch sliders and stacking doors allow for seamless indoor-outdoor flow. All bedrooms have external access. Wrapping around the home is a kwila deck. The home boasts a number of features that will have a positive impact on your family’s health and wallet – Next Energy centrally controlled geothermal heating, double-glazing, full insulation (far exceeding code), eco light fittings, Pyroclassic log burner and a number of passive design principles. Outside there is a permaculture garden, composting toilet in the stables and a chicken run with two hen houses. An abundance of fruit trees and natives offer shelter. A Total Span five-bay shed has three-phase power and mezzanine floor, while a horse shelter and yard, a tack room and a feed room ensure those with a love of horses have all they need. A round pen and 750m grass/clay track around the ten acre hay paddock assists with equine weight management (or hooning on the trail bike). Acting as a guest quarter, teenage retreat or accommodation option is the sleepout. Ideally positioned to enjoy the recreational options provided by both Lyttelton Harbour and Banks Peninsula, with plenty of room to store the boat or caravan under cover. Zoned for Tai Tapu Primary and Lincoln High School with school bus stops at either end of Ahuriri Rd. This progressive property is hard to go past. One visit is all it will take for you to fall in love.
