Refined and enhanced for modern life, this heritage rural Canterbury homestead is destined to serve many more future generations. Passed down within the family, the pre-1900s residence has been sympathetically updated by its current owners, retaining its original character beautifully. A 50sqm addition brings the home to a generous 300sqm with four bedrooms, two bathrooms, and three living areas including the stunning new open-plan zone. This is the heart of family life. A new wetback fire with central heating radiators ensures ultimate comfort in the depths of winter. Updated wall and floor coverings provide a lovely fresh finish. But the divinity is in the details, with historic features including large architraves, mouldings, decorative ceiling roses and cornices lovingly retained and restored. Modern features include a new concrete slab foundation and strengthening including a new steel beam in the roof space. Smart phone configuration allows home tech to be controlled via an app.
