Sparkling Coastal Perfection

Auction - From 1pm, Thurs 4 Sep 2014 (unless sold prior)

Found only 30 minutes from Christchurch this beautifully presented, sheltered and sunny modern home offers the ultimate in coastal living.

Renovated and extended in 2013, this home has been perfectly executed for modern living. Split over two levels and double glazed throughout, the interior offers home-buyers a crisp neutral canvas onto which family living, entertaining, work and life can play out.

Taking centre stage is the large open plan living/kitchen/dining. Expansive picture windows flood the room with natural light and instantly connect the inside with out. The kitchen sits in perfect harmony to the rest of the space and effortlessly marries aesthetics with function featuring an expansive workspace and abundant and well considered storage.

Connecting the living and kitchen, the breakfast bar offers an informal dining space, while ensuring the work area of the kitchen is separated from the living and dining. The use of a dark bold splashback grounds the kitchen and brings depth and texture to the open plan room.

A staircase leads down from the open plan living area to the master bedroom and ensuite. Opening up onto a private decked area, this is a tranquil spot in which to relax and enjoy the surrounds. The home's remaining two bedrooms with external access, and a second bathroom, are found on the upper level.

The property boasts multiple outdoor living areas to enjoy all-day sun and the expansive coastal views. The terraced garden and specimen plantings enjoy the warm microclimate providing year round texture, foliage and colour.

Nestled on the coastline of Lyttelton Harbour this property has nature on its doorstep including wood pigeons and bell-birds, while the picturesque views offer a relaxing and contemplative escape from the hustle and bustle of city living. With a safe swimming beach, boat ramp, sailing club and golf course all found on the doorstep, this home is perfectly suited to embrace an outdoor lifestyle.
