Nestled amidst an established 1513sqm botanical garden is this family home where memories are made and magic is created. Offering rural living in the city, properties such as these are often sought-after and yet seldom found as they are tightly held and endure long tenure. With our current owners having enjoyed the past 31 years here the time has now come for them to downsize allowing a new family to appreciate all that is on offer. With 4 double bedrooms, two living areas and two bathrooms this is a home that easily accommodates the needs of a busy family. The generous master bedroom is accompanied by an ensuite and walk in robe with the remaining bedrooms all doubles. Two living areas provide options for family but blend seamlessly for use when entertaining, and the numerous extensive outdoor living areas add further appeal. Attractive floor to ceiling windows not only allow the sun's rays to permeate this home all day, but also frame your view to an expansive, tranquil & private environment that only encourages one to further explore. A thoughtful addition has been the separate teenage retreat room beside the double garage which offers the young ones their own space or use as a studio or work from home office. Well maintained during our owners' tenure with an opportunity to add your own touch putting your stamp on the home. Your final temptation may be the property's close proximity to Merivale, Papanui, private schooling & Paparoa Street School. As the end of an era approaches for some, it is just the beginning of a new era for others. Obviously, our owners are sad to leave such a tranquil environment but make no mistake - they are committed and resolute in their decision. Come and explore but be warned..... once you step onsite, you may never wish to leave.
