This 1970s Christchurch home for sale is a design icon

Built in the 1970s, this spacious brick and timber home retains the unique features of its era.

Built around a U-shaped central courtyard, the brickwork and timber exterior is carried through to the interior spaces giving this home a distinctive flavour. The living areas are generously proportioned boasting tongue and groove timber ceilings and exposed beams. An impressive, decorative open fireplace with statement chimney, and a circular brick turret, accessible by staircase and opening into a private space (an office perhaps), are standout features in a house with unique design elements around every corner or curve.

The new owners will enjoy the versatility of multiple living spaces and outdoor courtyards giving flexibility for family living and entertaining groups of all sizes. The modern kitchen adjoins the dining and living areas and features ample cabinet space, a Bosch under-bench oven, an induction hob and breakfast bar.

The master bedroom has an ensuite and there are three other double bedrooms to accommodate families or houseguests. Many of the original distinctive features have been retained including a rare fully-tiled bath in the main bathroom.

Landscaped outdoor spaces include established trees and plantings, lawns, paved areas and decks. The property is fully fenced and the layout ensures shelter and privacy. A double garage and off-street parking cater for vehicles and storage.

Separate room currently houses a built-in spa (not in use) but would equally be suitable as a hobby room or workspace.

There are plenty of shopping options with Church Corner shopping centre and Hornby Mall located nearby. Educational needs are taken care of with zoning for Riccarton High School.

Buyers looking for something a little out of the ordinary and offering comfort and style, will love what’s on offer in this remarkable property. Contact me now to arrange a viewing.
