1,225sqm garden setting by Riccarton Bush

Auction (unless sold prior) - Brought forward to 4pm, Wed 25 July 2018

It's so easy to understand why the current owners have loved living here for the past 23 years. The enduring charm of this '40s-character home combined with one of the most desirable locations in Christchurch... a 1,225sqm established garden setting in a small cul-de-sac leading to Riccarton House and Bush with the Christchurch Farmers' Market on Saturdays and native bush walk virtually on your doorstep. However, a lifestyle changes beckons and reluctantly it's time to offer this special property to a new owner.

This home offers much more than you could imagine, starting with a substantial addition, designed by architects Skews Hey Ussher, which created extra living to the rear of this home. This opens to the deck through large sliding doors as does the adjoining dining/living area. The large modern kitchen comes with an expansive stainless-steel bench top, wall oven and gas hob and forms a true hub to this family home and an ideal spot if you love to cook. But the living doesn't stop there, at the front of the house is another cosy living room, with an approved wood burner, and an adjoining sunroom.

Three bedrooms and two bathrooms. The romantic main bathroom has a claw-foot bath, and a separate tiled shower. Separate laundry, two single garages. Beautiful rimu floors throughout, and a harmonious mix of old and new style.

But it's the private garden that will seal the deal with its established trees and shrubs. It's such a surprise to see how much section there is, and the possibilities it offers.

Prime location, a short picturesque walk or drive to Westfield shopping precinct, with its restaurants, cafes, bars and movie theatres and in Christchurch Girls' and Boys' High zones, Ilam Primary and the University. Or meander through Riccarton Bush to Hagley Park.

Desirability and opportunity in abundance.
