About this listing
Looking for some space without long commutes? Enter our subject property, with a winning combination of urban and expansive, making your decision easy. Nestled on the city's green fringe, with 2,224m2 in which to luxuriate, you're only a few minutes from neighbourhood cafes, schools and transport links.

Designed by Ray Hawthorne, the timeless 390m2 homestead offers urban sophistication with a twist of country-style hospitality. Rock solid brick construction and double glazing are reassuring, while requiring minimal maintenance. Flexibility is the keyword throughout; great entertaining spaces, generous sleeping accommodation and a downstairs guest suite (with separate access) which provides extended family or work-from-home potential.

Situated within an exclusive cul-de-sac of luxury residences, the home is beautifully enveloped by over half an acre of established lawns and gardens. An inground heated pool and pizza oven makes summer entertaining easy, as do a variety of decks and terraces, each offering a different aspect.

If you can bear to tear yourself away from this idyllic retreat, it's reassuring to know the home enjoys close proximity to numerous local amenities. Schooling at Paparoa Primary School is just a few steps away, thanks to the convenience of a gate providing direct access to the Rutland St cycle path, while you are equidistant from Merivale and Northlands Malls.

Our sellers have absolutely adored their time here, but it's time to pass the blessings afforded by this brilliant home to a new family.
