My client’s nest is empty after 11 years in this warm eco home, and the decision has been made to sell. Located in the heart of boutique, leafy subdivision Linden Grove, 2 Benjamin Mountfort Close is an energy-efficient home providing all the benefits of living just minutes’ drive from the city, while offering a warm, quiet sanctuary for your family to grow.

It’s range of eco features include solar water heating, extra insulation in the walls and ceiling, and a design that encourages passive heat flow. Relax and socialise in the property’s large open-plan kitchen/dining/living room, which opens out to a tastefully landscaped and sunny entertainment area. A separate media room contains built-in wall speakers – perfect for big-screen family movie nights. The large master bedroom is accompanied by double walk-through wardrobes and a spacious ensuite, while the two additional double bedrooms and a fourth bedroom/study all contain double robes.

Outside, privacy and sheltered living is maximised within a variety of spaces, including raised vegetable gardens and a private adults’ deck, perfect for a late-night summer wine or soak in a spa. The home overlooks a heritage Christchurch garden and is located close to a range of other established neighbourhood parks and green spaces. There’s also plenty of off-street parking for two cars, a trailer, plus boat or caravan.

Our seller’s children have grown, so it’s time to downsize and make way for a new family to enjoy this piece of paradise.

Auction Wednesday 7th October, 10:00am at Holmwood Auction Rooms, Ground Floor, 397 – 399 Ilam Road, Ilam (No Prior Sale).
