Charming homestead seeking new lease of life


An opportunity has arisen to own a gracious country home on 2.9560 hectares located at 333 Munro Road, Cheviot. This home is steeped in history and character having been the home of George Forbes, New Zealand's Prime Minister from 1930-35.

As you enter up the tree lined drive and pull up at the wide welcoming entrance and step inside you are taken back to a time when a home such as this was built with plenty of living and dining spaces and all of generous proportions. The home has four large bedrooms and is all on one level, iron roof, weatherboard cladding and wooden joinery. Facing to the north, internal heating is from two open fires, a night store heater and a log burner with insulation in the roof space. With a modernised kitchen opening out to living and dining options it is possible to get a taste of how this home could be transformed by strategic renovations and redecoration to restore it to its former glory. Two large wooden verandas open out to an extensive garden setting on different levels, complete with in-ground swimming pool and space for a tennis court, making this a real country home that would be ideal for a family or even as a farm or home stay.

There is just enough land to have animals and pets without getting tied down and of course the proximity to Cheviot township with its schooling, community groups and services is a real plus. You have the option to travel north to Kaikoura or south to Christchurch - a very central North Canterbury location.
