At first glance it would be easy to assume this classic residence was from the turn of last century with its stunning traditional lines and gracious elegance. However, its new owners get the benefit of both worlds when purchasing this beautiful modern abode designed with ageless sophistication by renowned architects. Gravity Architecture conceived a modern and sophisticated design, robustly constructed ‘post-quake’ in 2016 in durable linea, by highly regarded local builders, Miles Construction. With almost 300sqm of accommodation incorporating 4 bedrooms and 3 living rooms, this is a sizable family home on a sunny and sheltered 650sqm north facing site. Capacious from every angle, if you are looking for size, style and comfort then look no further.

An extra high stud and extensive use of timber throughout continues the time-honoured style. Even the double glazed aluminium joinery has the appearance of the traditional. Vast expanses of decking flow from the living to the garden and lawn, with a covered outdoor seating area reminiscent of a vintage verandah from days gone by. An airy light filled kitchen is sleek in granite with a large scullery, and is the central hub, overseeing proceedings in the family room and beyond. Interconnecting living rooms are an entertainer’s dream and can be opened and closed as needed. Economical underfloor heating is powered by a large heat pump, solar energy heats the water in the upstairs bathrooms and there is a gas fire for radiant comfort on our winter nights.

This quiet street is one of Merivale’s most sought after, almost equidistance between the Village and Hagley Park. Walking may well become your most favoured means of transport! If education is your priority then access to the ‘Big 3’ (CGHS, CBHS and BHS) is yours as of right and of course many private schooling options are nearby. Our sellers have held this since new, but now their circumstances are such that the decision has been made to move on. They are determined to see a SOLD sign before Christmas!
