A delightful 1950’s bungalow set on nearly 1 acre of flat and very productive land. North facing, sheltered, sunny and private, this charming home is in excellent order throughout having been loved and carefully maintained over the years.
The top level of the house comprises 2 living areas, a large modern farmhouse style kitchen with plenty of storage, a massive master bedroom with adjoining bathroom and a single bedroom currently used as an office.
The master bedroom opens onto a covered North facing verandah with a cosy covered-in area with a day bed, the perfect place to enjoy the afternoon sun, peace and birdlife and to while away a few hours. Downstairs, (externally accessed) are 2 double bedrooms, bathroom and a kitchenette/dining area so semi self-contained, perfect for extended family or teenagers.
This is a rare opportunity to purchase in the beautiful picturesque Purau valley and to obtain a small manageable holding like this is really one of a kind.
The land is a mixture of lawns, gardens and the most established and productive orchard I have ever seen, with many many fruit trees established vege beds and native plantings. There is excellent access, a large double garage, greenhouse and other useful sheds and most importantly excellent water supplies.
My vendors are retiring very reluctantly and have loved every minute of the 10 years they have spent here.
Purau Bay is approximately 30 minutes’ drive from Christchurch, making it a highly desirable destination as it is so useable being close to Chch.
Properties in this lovely valley and by such a safe swimming beach are defying all the odds and selling fast generally as they come up very seldom. Excellent swimming, boating, walking and stunning sunsets on the hills, quick and easy access to Lyttelton via the Diamond Harbour ferry (approx. 5 mins), local shops, cafés and bar make this a fun filled place to visit.
Properties here make an excellent investment and Purau Bay and valley is a truly magical place to live.
