About this listing
All the charm, character and craftsmanship of a 1940's property partnered with beautifully executed refurbishment makes for a very desirable property.
You can add to this the total privacy afforded by a long tree lined drive and brick walled, park like grounds with a stream boundary.
Set in the heart of Fendalton, this elegant, comfortable and light-filled family home has a long list of desirable features, including its contemporary kitchen, two living areas and four double bedrooms serviced by three well-appointed bathrooms.
The main bedroom comes with an adjacent bathroom, walk in wardrobe and additional dressing room.
Decorated to a high standard with a colour palette of egg shell pastels, with chandeliers overhead and a combination of charcoal carpet and wood flooring, the appeal of this home is evident from the broad foyer with its floor to ceiling windows to the living and dining areas opening to the grounds.
Large expanses of garden with specimen trees and a serene stream boundary, together with a patio with a wisteria clad pergola offer superb outdoor entertaining areas, while winter will see you warmly ensconced courtesy of the heat pump, log burner and partial double glazing.
Practicalities for family living are taken care of with double garaging and extensive off-street parking and the home comes with zoning for Christchurch Boys and Girls High Schools.
Well placed for the retail and services of Riccarton, Fendalton, neighbouring Merivale and the popular Farmers Market at Riccarton Bush, there's a lot to love about a home that offers this degree of serene seclusion in the heart of Fendalton.
Properties of this calibre set on large, rear sites are slow to come onto the market and very fast to leave it so today will always better than tomorrow to secure this particular piece of paradise.
You may then relax on your chair by the water's edge at the end of your garden and reflect on a very astute buy.
