Prices Valley is a peaceful and beautiful valley boasting its own microclimate, situated on Banks Peninsula, just 46km of easy driving from Christchurch City. This has been a much loved family home and lifestyle choice for our vendors for over 25 years, however the time has come to hand over the reins to someone new.
The house itself is a spacious and classic villa, with plenty of work carried out over the years to ensure its longevity. With four double bedrooms, three living spaces, two bathrooms and huge wraparound verandahs, she is sitting peacefully and in total privacy amongst productive and beautiful gardens, with the sound of birdsong and babbling brook completing the picture. The house is re wired, re roofed, well insulated and has its own solar power supply in conjunction with mains power. She has also had plenty of updating over the years, including a recent exterior and interior paint.
The property itself boasts three parts- the grounds and flat paddocks around the house (just over 10 hectares) - with established fruit trees including a large walnut grove, gardens, barns including an as new American style barn, garages and endless extra outbuildings (including extra accommodation in the form of a studio sleep out and bathroom); the regenerating native bush; and the coppicing forested area.
The incredible opportunity here lies in the potential of this remarkable property. Either live in the house, commute into the city to work, operate a business from the property, or become self-sufficient, with the option to grow your own food, raise livestock and develop the forestry area further. Akaroa and the surrounding Bays are within close proximity as are the cafes at Little River and Motukarara. This rare and unique property offers a change in pace amongst the increasingly hectic world we live in and has so many lifestyle options. Is it time to change your life?
