A Home for the Ages
Just three proud owners have held this phenomenal cedar-clad dwelling since its construction in the 1920's, but after 30 years in the stewardship of our vendors it's now time to add a new name to the title.
You'll inherit a beautifully polished gem, which wholeheartedly embraces the patina of its original construction, thanks to the meticulous preservation of unique features including timber panelling, wonderful rimu joinery and mullioned windows which echo the ethos of Arts and Crafts craftsmanship.
From the spectacle of the grand staircase to elegantly proportioned ceilings, the floorplan is configured to embrace sun and space, with the accommodating formal lounge and separate dining demonstrating considerable comfort, warmed by a gas fire and heat pump respectively.
The timeless kitchen fuses classic charm with modern convenience, and its floor to ceiling cabinetry and glass fronted cupboards will delight purists and pragmatic household cooks.
Accommodation is shared between floors, with sizeable ground level quarters complemented by a pair of versatile, light-laden rooms upstairs, and the downstairs family bathroom hosts a bath and separate shower for day-to-day ease.
A century of establishment lends the leafy 862m2 grounds grandeur, and their usefulness is heightened by a garden shed, single garage and off-street parking, although the significant parcel may also tempt those with an eye to future subdivision.
In this amenity-rich, family-friendly corner of Christchurch, schooling is at the forefront of purchasing decisions, and parents will find reassurance in zoning for Beckenham Te Kura Primary School, St Martins Primary School, and Cashmere High School.
If long tenure is testament to greatness, then this long-held home is among the best we've been privileged to offer.
AUCTION: Thursday 14th April 2022 from 11:00am Harcourts Grenadier 98 Moorhouse Avenue (Unless Sold Prior)
