Lounging on the slopes high above Christchurch’s port town, this newly renovated 1930s home is enjoying the view through fresh eyes. Lovingly restored and updated, its three-storeys now exude space, light and luxury.
With characterful living areas, tranquil bathrooms and double sliding doors opening onto its spacious new decks and views across Banks Peninsula, every day feels like a holiday.
Living areas feature a neutral colour palette, while splashes of greens and blues in the bathrooms reflect the harbour views.
Special attention has been paid to retaining the home’s original charms. A wonderful half-moon window on the leadlight windows throughout have been thoughtfully retro-fitted with double glazing.
The interior has been sympathetically renovated with rimu wood panelling in the kitchen and dining room and more panelling in the bathrooms and toilets.
A new foundation and shingle gables provide the owners with peace of mind in the changeable climate.
The garage has also been rebuilt to perfection.
