Picture perfect and pairing cottage charm with contemporary finesse, this circa 1920s villa is visually timeless and set upon four-hectares of idyllic pastoral land within a peaceful Swannanoa cul-de-sac.

The quaint weatherboard exterior has benefited from partial recladding, while inside, tasteful modernisation is exhibited in the kitchen that’s placed upon elegant oak floors while the superbly refurbished bathroom enjoys warmth underfoot delivered by under-tile heating.

An open plan living area plays a central role within the floor plan and provides a relaxed backdrop to daily routines. French doors off the dining space open outdoors to the easy-care courtyard, while the veranda-lined entrance provides an enchanting alternative for alfresco unwinding.

A decorative fireplace lies within one of the home’s three double bedrooms, while the presence of gas hot water, a log burner, and a heat transfer system ensures you’ll be kept extremely cosy throughout the cooler months ahead.

This sheltered parcel of land has a water race and its own water bore that ideally irrigates the picturesque pine tree plantation and flourishing orchards. Utility sheds provide valuable storage and come in the form of a single garage, a hen house and an animal shelter.

Located within easy reach of the Mandeville shopping hub and sports centre, this property is also a comfortable 25-minute commute from Christchurch, which will please those who frequent the inner-city.

Buyers looking to embrace soul-soothing character in the country will undoubtedly be drawn to this endearing offering. Contact me for more information.
