Crafted with uncompromising attention to detail and occupying an utterly breath-taking position in the Otahuna countryside bounded by Otahuna Lodge, this magnificent 6.52 hectare property personifies rural elegance and is visually pleasing on every level. Completely rebuilt post-earthquake in 2013, the 350sqm four-bedroom home with open plan living and separate lounge allows guests to be entertained with ease. The kitchen, bathroom and laundry were designed by Ingrid Geldof.

Accommodation options include a separate guest suite and wide-ranging heating solutions offer undeniable comfort. Three bathrooms, an office, an internal access garage, internal vacuum system and active security system are further conveniences of this superbly finished home. Kwila decking borders a substantial portion of the home to provide you with an expansive alfresco backdrop, and the presence of a spa ensures you can also indulge outdoors.

Presenting a year-round sense of serenity are the well-maintained landscaped grounds, mature specimen trees and a tranquil tree-lined pond complete with jetty and night lights. This very special property is part of Sir Heaton Rhodes’s original property and has the bonus of dual access.

Further features include a four-bay shed (two bays lockable) with concrete floors and three-phase power, a natural spring, four paddocks and sheep yards. Set in Canterbury’s very best lifestyle location, this property enjoys a genuine sense of restfulness and will attract buyers who desire an idyllic escape within the city limits. The sale of Park Hill truly is a one-off opportunity.
