Deadline Sale, 1pm Wed 11 Dec 2019 (unless sold prior)

Situated at the base of the Port Hills in the idyllic Lansdowne Valley and along the much sought-after Old Tai Tapu Road, this 1.3ha property will attract those who desire a smaller lifestyle block. Set in an extraordinary parklike setting, the site is warm and sheltered with its own little microclimate. Drive along the small country lane and the property invites your eye into what you may think is a nature reserve. The magic of this setting is the result of a life time of love and passion for horticulture and the legacy of the current owner' hard work, now ready for someone else to continue and enjoy. The grounds offer a feeling of seclusion, a haven for birdlife and so much space for children to play and gardeners to potter.The private and comfortable home is immaculate however there is undeniable scope for buyers to modernise. Exposed wooden beams overhead and timber joinery provide an element of country charm to the dedicated lounge, as does the timeless coal range in the open plan kitchen and dining area. Extending the living space outdoors, sliding doors open to a sheltered brick patio and pergola - the perfect spot for spending your summer's entertaining and eating alfresco. Warmth over the cooler months is easily achieved with the heat pumps, Ethos log burner, Atlas coal range and partial double glazing. Completing the floor plan are the three bedrooms, bathroom, enclosed exterior mudroom and separate laundry.A wealth of extras set this property apart and include an art studio above the single garage, two ponds, one of which comes complete with a jetty, and a one-bedroom sleepout. Aspects of the property offered on an "as is, where is" basis are the in-ground swimming pool and two large commercial glasshouses. Conveniently located within easy reach of the city and nearby amenities in Halswell, which is just over five minutes' drive away. Purchasers with vision will be drawn to this rural hideaway which offers the best of both worlds.
