Listing ID FE7523

Our seller’s decision to relinquish this idyllic position in the Bowenvale Valley is driven by their desire to take ‘time out’, so they are retreating for a while to their remote bach at the Hurunui River Mouth. On first approach, surveying the expansive views across to Mount Vernon, you will see they are swapping one tranquil spot for another. Tucked away at the end of a cul de sac, the property is secluded but with excellent easy access into triple garaging with loads of parking and turning space. Architecturally striking in grey block and iron, the house rises to a terraced level of living spaces and family bedrooms. Here a double height stud soars and re-cycled wooden floors glow. Sheltered outdoor sitting and dining areas have a lush landscaped backdrop where birdlife abounds, and inside bush views peek at every opportunity. The master suite occupies its own level with a mezzanine ‘contemplation’ space, and even a balcony. A truly timeless style radiates in the soft walnut tones of the kitchen joinery and a media room with hidden screen and projector will be sure to please the whole family. The property is perfectly positioned fifteen minutes from the CBD but only a short walk to the base of the Bowenvale Valley Track. The ideal work and play balance, neighbouring all the attractions of our iconic Port Hills, this location is always in demand with geographic, retail and academic drawcards. A flourishing ‘café society’ will be sure to appeal, and for those concerned with schooling, there is a choice of Thorrington or Beckenham, and then on to the highly regarded Cashmere High. Meanwhile, at the Hurunui the kahawai are schooling and the salmon are running, so our sellers say it is time to pass this special environment on to another family. Come and see for yourselves all that’s on offer here!
