3 Deans Ave, Christchurch

Circa 1910 and wonderfully cute, originally built as a fisherman's cottage. A local resident remembers the house when he was young always painted red, it has been known as the 'Red House' ever since.

The light filled living areas have beautiful Matai wooden flooring, which features throughout this sunny home, with a log burner keeping the whole house nice and cosy in the winter. There is dual access to the magnificent bathroom from both the lounge and the main bedroom with an old, barn style door.

The new kitchen is perfect, with all modern conveniences and lots of storage; the theme of the cottage extends here with traditional Matai recycled wooden flooring. Easy access to both the dining area, backyard and gardens.

A bonus is the sun-filled conservatory. Light and bright with wooden, bi-folding doors opening to the garden, making for great indoor/outdoor living; a perfect space to relax in at any time of the day.

The hidden, private garden at the rear of the section has an old red shed, covered with purple wisteria, blue clematis and a heavily producing passionfruit vine. Many fruit trees, including pear, fig, apple, peach, apricot and persimmon are in this area. A delightful garden, sheltered and sunny, a true microclimate with lots of lawn for children to play.

Midway down the garden, you will also discover a studio with ensuite, perfect for a teenager, extended family, or simply to work from home.

A much admired street, the current owner having lived here for 17 years, enjoys the views of the red cliffs in the morning and the sound of the sea in the evening. It is an easy stroll to the Estuary, the new Redcliffs School, coastal pathway and all the amenities of the Redcliffs village are so close by.
