When this home was built no expense was spared from its solid brick construction to the concrete tile roof, which these days would cost a fortune to construct. Set on a freehold 616m2 section this huge 383m2 home could be either a 6 bedroom home or 5 bedroom plus generous ground floor study. Tucked down a private lane where no one drives past you, every box is ticked including your internal access double garage. A feeling of instant wow factor is present when entering the expansive entrance way of this home. A glamourous formal dining room is laid out in front of you with its breath taking chandelier. Also on this level is a formal lounge and family room complete with gas fire, all flowing to the north facing, Italian tiled sunny yard. Double cavity sliders between living rooms can be left open to add to the feeling of spaciousness or closed off to create more cosy ambient spaces. An immaculate Cordon Bleu kitchen plus family dining area completes the downstairs along with a powder room and ground floor study (which could be a sixth bedroom if required). Upstairs are the 5 generous bedrooms including the master with ensuite and walk in robe and a further family bathroom. This home represents no compromise living and is toasty warm in winter or cool in summer thanks to 4 heat pumps, gas fire and piped hot water underfloor heating throughout the entire down stairs. A move back to Christchurch sees this stunning property on the market available to a lucky new family who need loads of space without extensive grounds to maintain. You will be only the third owner of this Robin O'Donnell designed home. Located in popular Long Drive with the convenience of the St Heliers Bay Village and beach just down the road, not to mention some wonderful schooling options.
