Stunning from the outset with a grand private driveway and beautiful park-like grounds bordered by a quintessential white picket fence, this immaculate character home will be a dream come true for the whole family. Within close proximity to excellent schools and the Merivale Precinct, this elegant two-storey home boasts spacious, naturally-lit rooms inside, including four generous bedrooms and two well-appointed bathrooms. The open plan kitchen/dining/living area evokes contemporary charm with a modern sparkling kitchen with superior fixtures and fittings and gorgeous communal space for family life to play out, including large French doors off the dining area that extend out onto a sunny patio - perfect for summertime BBQs. The separate lounge offers a more formal space to retreat to in the evenings with a large bay window and cosy gas fire adding to the charm of the property, while two heat pumps complete the appeal. Outside, sunshine is never an issue thanks to the north-facing aspect, and nor is space. Bordered by a leafy belt of beautiful shrubs and trees, the substantial 842m² section comprises perfectly manicured gardens, a stunning patio for entertaining, plus an inviting solar-heated swimming pool (5 years old) that will keep the kids entertained. Full fencing ensure privacy, while a studio with toilet, garden shed, a free standing off-street double garage/workshop combined plus four off-street parking spaces provide a hang-out space for teenagers and storage for the toys. Superbly located in an area for top zoned schools including Papanui High, Heaton Intermediate and Paparoa Street Primary. Both Merivale Malls and the shops and services of Northlands are less than a five minute drive away, while excellent transport links and an easy commute into the CBD make this property a solid investment for now and in the future. An incredible opportunity for you and the family to live the picture-perfect life, this immaculate character has been a well-loved family home for years.
