Supremely well positioned on the corner of Rugby and Naseby Street and set among distinguished homes in one of Merivale’s finest locations. Overlooking the greenery of the boutique Merivale Reserve with a playground and tennis court, whilst being within walking distance to Merivale Mall and Hagley Park. Originally crafted to exacting standards in 1910 for University of Canterbury’s Vice Chancellor, James Hight, this classic villa is frequently admired and boasts copious amounts of street appeal and space to accommodate changing needs of your family as your children grow. You are greeted by a large return verandah that frames the wide and welcoming entrance. The classic features are simply amazing with leadlights, ornate cornices, ceiling roses and timber floors, yet key areas of the home have been appropriately modernised. Those who enjoy cooking will love the contemporary kitchen that is socially located with the dining and sitting area. Both the family room and formal lounge are spacious, boast plenty of natural light and are sure to accommodate your lifestyle requirements. Whether your family is big or small, this property has it covered with the option of up to five double bedrooms, two renovated bathrooms and a separate laundry. The master bedroom is particularly impressive having a walk-in-wardrobe and stylish ensuite, all being generous in size. Storage is unlikely to be a problem with multiple in-house cupboards combined with two garages and various sheds ensuring copious amounts of space. Placed on a quiet 997sqm parcel of land that is securely fenced with an attractive established garden and preferred TC2 land zoning. With this prime location, numerous private schools are nearby and zoning for Elmwood Primary, Heaton Intermediate and Christchurch Girls’ and Boys’ High School adds to the overall appeal.
