Temuka icon seeking new owner


Auction: 12 noon, Fri 16 Mar

3 Deans Ave, Christchurch

Its Iconic, unique, private, spacious, and has the X Factor.

This is a once in a lifetime chance to own real estate that holds incredible history not only in the architectural build but its use as the Temuka Library, a restaurant, Doctors surgery, Plunket rooms and now a residential home offering tranquility right on the main street of Temuka, South Canterbury. Quite unbelievable comes to mind as you discover what lies within.

Step inside the large doors through a small foyer encased in glass and immediately you are transported into a welcoming warm home. Natural lighting highlights the plaster ceilings overhead and reflects the polished rimu floorboards. The dining area with french doors off to a private courtyard, with excellent night lighting and flows beyond into the landscaped grounds.

The main bedroom wing is elegantly decorated with its own dressing robe space, a foyer entrance, and French doors to a deck and your own garden nook. Progress past the once library entrance and down a slight level to separate toilets, additional rooms awaiting your magic touch. The kitchen to the right was once the doctors surgery and waiting room. The large overhead vents remain from the days as a restaurant. A door leads via a mud room concept out to the additional parking space and garden. Further down the hall are three double bedrooms with their own private views to the garden splendour. The laundry is newly fitted out in pristine white and a separate bathroom with shower, complete this wing with back door opening to the private spa and lush landscaped garden.

Water features of fountains, rock walls and a goldfish pond sit in the middle surrounded by rose beds, established trees beckoning to an English garden atmosphere. Privacy is the one word that hits your mind as you look 360 degrees around you. Vegetable raised beds, small sheds and glass houses complete this gem of sustainable living.

A new three bay garage and ample parking off street compliment the property
