Winning in Rugby!

60 Rugby Street, Merivale - Christchurch City

  • 4 Bedrooms
  • 3 Bathrooms
  • 2 Car Spaces
Listing ID FE7386

In the street named for our national obsession, some may see similarities here with our soon to be heroic All Blacks. Reliable and trustworthy construction of cedar and brick, handsome good looks, fit for purpose, and a relaxed and sociable demeanour!

This is a spacious home on a freehold site of 515sqm with all the ingredients for success. Entirely and superbly rejuvenated under the expert guidance of David Sheppard of Sheppard and Rout, this is a standout property. With four bedrooms (3 downstairs) and three bathrooms, the home could suit a myriad of buyers. Perhaps the pièce de résistance is the immense master bedroom upstairs suite with elegant bathroom and outstanding wardrobe space.

Location and position in prime Merivale can never be altered and this property top scores in both. The house lies perfectly to the north with almost all rooms embracing that aspect. Sheltered and sun-filled, the courtyard dining is almost an outdoor room overlooking the pretty garden and with the added luxury of an electric awning for shade in summer. Glossy new timber flooring runs through a gleaming white kitchen to dining and a seating area with a quiet garden outlook. There is nothing mediocre about this stylish new offering to the market.

Our serious sellers have a new David Sheppard – designed house well underway and they are keen to make their move into the central city soon. We eagerly anticipate a win for all!
