This iconic home has occupied its prime position on the corner of Papanui Road and Paparoa Street since 1881. Trends have come and gone, but this property has retained its classic grandeur with deft updates ensuring it is a practical family home for contemporary living. Enjoying superb zoning, including Paparoa Street School, Heaton, Christchurch Boys' and Christchurch Girls' High, it is just a six-minute walk to St Andrew's College or a two-minute drive to Merivale Village. Inside, a series of generously proportioned living spaces flow seamlessly to the garden for maximum enjoyment of the magnificent 1,421 sqm grounds (in two titles). A family-sized kitchen with two sinks and gas cooktop looks out over a large family living/dining room with built-in office nook. Polished timber floors link an additional sitting room and large separate lounge, both with French doors to north-facing outdoor living and BBQ area. Five bedrooms and three bathrooms, plus a separate powder room, ensure no shortage of space for growing families. This home also offers an income opportunity through airbnb. This stunning property offers exciting current and future options, including potential subdivision. With owners motivated and ready to sell, this is your opportunity to secure an icon.
