A piece of history

This grand home is quite simply unparalleled in history, character, and class and is absolutely a Christchurch icon. It was built in 1910 to occupy prominent members of the well-known Christchurch Ballantynes family. The home is steeped in tradition whilst having been renovated in keeping with its original features.

From its magnificent entrance, move into the light-filled formal lounge featuring the large bay window looking out on the tranquil setting. Adjoining the formal lounge is the sitting room, as well as an attached sunroom which is bathed in sunshine. The impressive kitchen and its Rayburn cooker will excite the chef of the family. The interconnecting dining room will make family and social gatherings an occasion. A feature-tiled bathroom and separate laundry are also found on the ground floor.

The spacious upstairs floor comprises four bedrooms including a master with ensuite. All bedrooms have been beautifully and individually period-designed to give each their own personal and special touch. Designed with an outlook in mind, every room showcases the home's surroundings with views to the Southern Alps and Kaikoura Ranges.

The once servant's quarters have been converted into a self-contained flat complete with its own bathroom, open plan living space, outdoor area and kitchen; making it the perfect addition for your extra family member or as a source of income.

This elegant dwelling is on a substantial section with extra-large garaging. It is kept warm throughout the year courtesy of a range of heat sources and its sunny aspect.

Minutes from the new Shirley Boys' and Avonside Girls' High Schools as well as New Brighton Beach and the planned saltwater pools, 69 Union Street is perfect for any family.

It is the ideal home for the discerning buyer who is looking for a fantastic family abode, whilst being able to entertain guests and reminisce about the home's history of that special early Christchurch bygone era.
