Charm and Grace
$450,000 - $750,000
This Christchurch property has the delight of a heritage home, with all the modern features of a new one.
The lawn is just a step down from the wraparound veranda.
The objective for the build was for the design and materials to be in keeping with the era and style of homes around it. The result: a house that fits in beautifully to the established suburb. At the front, a cottage garden gives a warm welcome and the lawn is just a step down from the wraparound veranda. Large doors in the living spaces, main bedroom suite and study area make it easy to wander outside to enjoy the sun.
Natural light flows into the kitchen through the skylight and a mix of stainless steel appliances, glass feature light pendants and white cabinetry ensure the space feels serene. This flows into the dining area with a sofa and fireplace.
To avoid the noise of people socialising in the kitchen, simply step into the separate lounge. Glass doors can close the space off, but still let you feel like you are part of it all, thanks to the clear view back to the kitchen.
The main bedroom has an ensuite and walk-in wardrobe. A family bathroom services the other two bedrooms, meaning no one has to wait to get ready in the morning.
