An enchanting treasure
Securely positioned behind electric gates and situated on a substantial section in two Freehold titles, this lovingly restored home blends the undeniable beauty and elegance of the 1880’s with modern conveniences to create an incredibly comfortable family home.
The picture-perfect exterior retains its everlasting charm which is echoed inside where character detailing has been faithfully preserved.
Designer wallpapers, kauri flooring, large double-glazed windows, chandeliers, the unique staircase and numerous fireplaces contribute to the overwhelming sense of old-world grandeur, while thoughtful enhancements, like those showcased in the kitchen, remain accurate to the character of the home.
The floor plan contains highly functional and distinct living spaces including a dedicated dining area, a family room, a formal lounge, and a versatile study space off the kitchen which could be utilised as a walk-in pantry.
Ample accommodation is provided by five bedrooms that share two bathrooms, with one of each also conveniently located on the ground floor. Furthermore, a separate self-contained studio occupies the substantial grounds and is an ideal retreat for guests or teenagers and would be equally well-suited as a space to work from home.
The botanical section offers the feeling of a rural setting in a residential suburb, with a chicken coop, a glass house and lush gardens forming a charming backdrop for outdoor living.
Located only a short drive from the central city and the Port Hills, this property is also zoned for Cashmere High School.
Meticulously renovated character homes are becoming a rare sight in the post-quake landscape. Don’t miss your opportunity to purchase a significant part of Christchurch’s history.
