About this listing
There are clear instructions from my vendors - they want to be sold and will listen to what the market says!

A great opportunity for an astute buyer, this home is in one of the loveliest settings in Governors Bay, or indeed Christchurch.

With nothing in the way, it's a magnificent panorama out to the Lyttelton Harbour and surrounding hills. Peaceful and ever changing, this must be the ultimate antidote to life's daily stresses.

The classic homestead sits at the top of the property enjoying the best of the views and sun. Built with family in mind there are four bedrooms, two living, 2 sunrooms and a large library/office that could be a fifth bedroom. The two bathrooms are of high quality, one being ensuite. The main family area is open plan with a huge kitchen at the heart. Granite benches and state of the art appliances make this a home-cook's paradise. The dining area and adjoining living both open directly to a large deck and the ever-present vista. A wood burner with a feature stone surround adds the cosy warmth of real flame. Adjoining these spaces is the second living room, which in turn connects to a sunny rear facing conservatory and courtyard. Upstairs is the master suite, library and a second sunroom with views right to Godley Head - the perfect spot to watch ships come and go, with yachts in the foreground and kids jumping off the pier at the bottom of your garden.

Two car garaging and good off-street parking complete this desirable home. Set in the small harbour community of Governors Bay the property is an easy commute to central Christchurch, and a short stroll from all the community amenities including bars and cafes, the school and the local pool.

Viewings through open homes or by private appointment.
