Viewings strictly via appointment.

Here's the place for those who want to combine the style, culture and charm of Lyttelton with the space and tranquillity of a semi-rural setting the enjoys world-class harbour views.

Sit back, relax and watch (or be involved with) boaties, yachties and paddleboarders at play in Canterbury's aquatic playground.

Set on 1012 sqm (that's the traditional kiwi quarter-acre section) and built in the 1950's, this warm and cosy weatherboard home has stood the test of time. It is a multi-faceted house with three double bedrooms, two bathrooms and open-plan living with direct access to decking and balconies with stunning views of the port, harbour and peninsula hills - a picture-perfect outlook!

Open plan living at the eastern end of the house (with centrally positioned logburner) extends out to balcony decking with harbour outlook. French doors lead to garden areas behind the house where sheltered decking basks in northerly sunshine and a backdrop of grassy terraced banks leading to the top of a section that adjoins rural land. What a wonderful place to grow your own vegetable crop in such a sheltered micro-climate environment.

From the main living area, the stairway leads down to lower level accommodation that could be ideal for independent family members, as a rentable proposition or as a parental retreat. It has previously been operated as an Airbnb rental. This extremely spacious double bedroom has an associated sitting room area, balcony and ensuite bathroom (including bath) creating an apartment-style.

Basement space beneath the house provides extended storage options.

Practical, spacious, comfortable, secluded and perfectly positioned for those majestic views, there's so much to love about this special harbourside retreat.

Registrations of interest are advised as this property is for definite sale and may be sold at any time.

Deadline Sale 4:00 PM 16th February 2018, if not sold prior.
