2006sqm overlooking Elmwood Park presents untold possibilities right now or in the future. Currently a character filled bungalow sprawls delightfully over the land offering space and grace in a true family environment. There is real potential here to renovate this existing home and in fact there are plans available from local Merivale creative team, DD Architects, to undertake precisely this. There are compelling reasons to take this path.

One of our earliest Christchurch Californian bungalows, there are beautiful leadlight windows, a superb stone fireplace and additions over the years have created voluminous spaces including five living areas of various dimensions, a master bedroom suite with a huge dual access bathroom and two walk-in-robes, and garaging the size of a small home! However, for some, the temptation will be to start all over again and with respect to the quality of neighbouring residences, this could be an astute move. With a well-positioned house there would be room for both tennis court and pool. The recent demand for large modern homes may persuade a canny developer to consider building four on this attractive established site. Large camellias and rhododendrons rim the boundary and there is a truly splendid Ginkgo tree.

It is a rarity to find such a substantial property of this size, with so many options, in our most favoured suburb. Make haste, as our sellers’ personal circumstances are such that the sale of this glorious home is inevitable.
