This is a home which epitomises all there is to love about Lyttelton and really offers the best of the lifestyle here. Shackleton Terrace is a rare opportunity- an absolute dream of a property.
Boasting views, excellent sun, a versatile organic garden and a truly wonderful, warm and incredibly spacious house- a must view for lovers of villas who are looking for something unique and special. The house has charm oozing from every crevice, whilst still being immensely practical and utterly delightful.
The sunny courtyard leads into a spacious mud room, and then opens up into a modern, functional kitchen, with a large living/dining room opening onto the verandah to take in the views of the port and harbour. With two heat-pumps, a compliant log-burner, and insulation in the ceiling, walls and between the levels, she is a house that is designed for modern living whilst still retaining all the original features which make these houses so sought after. A new bathroom, separate loo, huge laundry and two double bedrooms complete the picture on the first floor- and all the rooms have picture windows with views of the harbour.
Downstairs there are a further two double bedrooms which both have doors out onto a level and sheltered lawn. Below this the garden stretches out offering numerous fruit trees, and this is a private paradise with plenty of room to develop the space further for those seeking garden space and plenty of options. There is also a separate sleep out which gives a fantastic work from home option, teenage retreat or simply extra space for guests.
Built in the early 1900s, she is showing her age here and there and there is some work to be done, but what an opportunity for an astute buyer to live here comfortably whilst adding value if desired. A must view.
Please note: There is no parking on Shackleton Terrace, so for viewing please park on Selwyn Road and walk up.
