Where history and architecture combine


Offers invited over $1.2m

Situated in French Farm, this wonderful property is set on an elevated site affording panoramic harbour views out from French Farm and overlooking Akaroa Harbour and the historic Onawe Peninsula.

From the moment you access the property and make your way up the sealed driveway, you can feel the history surrounding this unique property, which is an immaculate blend of old and new. Originally the schoolhouse for a bustling French Farm settlement, it now blends seamlessly with a modern architecturally-designed home that is extremely well-thought-out and fits perfectly within the environmental surrounds. The sun-drenched three-bedroom, two-bathroom home features a wonderful open-plan kitchen/living area opening to outdoor living which is perfectly positioned to enjoy the stunning vistas whilst providing a sunny, sheltered area where you can enjoy those long summer evenings. The old school, which has become the lounge for the home, has been used for social functions as it can seat up to 50 people, so provides several business opportunities for functions, weddings or as a small conference centre.

French Farm is arguably one of the most picturesque areas in Akaroa Harbour, featuring the French Farm Winery and boasts a very active Aquatic Club which has regular social occasions.

The presentation of the large 4,097sqm section is second to none. Planting of native and exotic trees offer shelter and privacy from all directions, allowing an incredible array of fruit trees and vegetables to be grown. It doesn't end there - a tastefully-designed, terraced flower garden with sweeping lawns provides a truly relaxing and enjoyable place in which to live. The area has a wonderful climate, has a thriving community and the property could be a great option for an at-home business, providing a complete package.

A lovely property in the heart of one of New Zealand's most sought-after locations.
