Spacious and gracious on Clifton Bay

An often admired Sumner home - originally as a seaside holiday house for visitors from Christchurch. Almost 100 years of age, this substantial and magnificent home is strikingly beautiful and has been totally renovated for contemporary living.

Superbly nestled in Clifton Bay overlooking the beach, it enjoys a microclimate that allows subtropical palms and plants to thrive.

A five bedroom, two story, light filled family home, that in 2009 underwent a sympathetic, tasteful renovation and extension by prominent conservation architect Tony Ussher. The home had extensive repairs, finished to an incredibly high standard by the previous owners.

Simply stunning decor, white bright and airy enjoying full ocean views; with living areas on both floors you feel like you own the ocean. Enjoy the large downstairs balcony for outdoor living and entertaining, feeling encompassed by the views.

North-facing family living and dining, a beautiful Ingrid Geldof designed kitchen opens to the private rear courtyard. The more formal living has a double-faced gas fire, bookcases, large picture windows and two sets of French doors opening to the expansive deck. The layout maximizes the sun and sea views.

A beautiful staircase leads to the upstairs bedrooms, all with built in wardrobes and storage, the master bedroom with ensuite and private balcony. Two other bedrooms enjoy sea views and have access to the sun gallery that runs across the front of the house, the perfect space to sit, relax or reflect, with stunning views.

Another bedroom overlooks the grounds - a perfect media room or wonderful quiet office space. The fifth spacious bedroom downstairs has an adjacent bathroom that is wheelchair friendly.

A truly outstanding home, set in magnificent Clifton Bay overlooking the new coastal pathway and the ocean. If a sea change that includes all the delights of the now refurbished Sumner Village is appealing, then this is your home. Viewing by appointment only.
