This elegant Christchurch home comes with a fully self-contained studio

With their children having left the nest, the owners want to move on. This is a unique opportunity and investment, not to be missed.

Built in the 1940s, this family home retains its original character with high stud ceilings and Rimu floors. Positioned perfectly on a 980sqm TC2 section, tucked back towards the south with all of the living areas and four bedrooms facing north, the home feels warm, bright and spacious.

Downstairs, two large living areas, a separate dining room and a master option provide ample choices for living and entertaining. The four double bedrooms upstairs are each of a good size and are complimented by a study or single room option. The large living areas, swimming pool and multiple patios give you a great variety of entertainment spaces and plenty of room to enhance. There is a fully self-contained studio at the rear of the property which could accommodate teenagers, guests, or provide an impressive additional income. The tall fence line and established gardens provide privacy and peace as the large trees shelter you from the street frontage.

Located less than 1km from St Andrews College, zoned for some of the city’s most desirable schools including Christchurch Girls and Boys High Schools, Heaton Intermediate, Elmwood and Paparoa Street Primary Schools, and well within range of the boutique shops and cafes of Merivale, Northlands Mall, and the city centre in the other direction. Your new home will be the complete package for you and your family (or pending family) for years to come! There are so many options; live here and add your own simple touches, add value and enhance with a renovation, or land-hold and build in the coming years upon this potentially sub-dividable site! Absolute blue-chip real estate!
