Proudly in the family for almost 100 years, this very special property has plenty to offer. Beautifully set in park-like grounds with 100 year-old trees and approximately 1km of magnificent river frontage, this lovely 185sqm (approx.) four-bedroom, one bathroom home was extensively renovated in 2012 yet retains character while including modern comforts. Keeping with its surroundings, the kitchen is country-style, with gorgeous panelled cabinetry, in-built appliances and views of the Port Hills. The living area is open-plan with the kitchen and dining. With direct access to the patio beyond, indoor-outdoor flow is seamless. The lounge offers an additional space that can be closed off from the remainder of the living, and includes an open-fire with historic carved surround. With access to the outdoors, it is an ideal spot to open up the doors and admire the impressive garden beyond. The dining area is adjacent and this is flooded with natural light, and again has access to the outdoors. An Indian Sandstone patio with an electric-driven sun shade lends itself to outdoor entertaining over the summer months. Outdoors, the grounds and gardens are truly exceptional and includes raised vegetable beds and a grass tennis court. A particular respect has been paid to the history of this special property, with a number of original sheds on the property. Other outbuildings include the 9mx6m "Red Shed" American-style steel-built workshop/mans shed (with a work bench and stacking frames), a wood shed (re-roofed with second-hand iron and with new timber supports), pig pen, cattle yards (as is) and two six-bay hay sheds. With an option to subdivide, or add an additional dwelling, this property offers further potential to the new owner. All in this prime location so close to Lincoln and Tai Tapu, on the doorstep of Banks Peninsula, and an easy commute to Christchurch City - it's time for you to make your own memories here.
