118 Straven Road, Fendalton
Set well back from the road and positioned on a vast 1553sqm private section, this commanding high end property impresses from well before you enter the grand foyer. Thoughtfully designed by architectural designer Tim Lonsdale for the ultimate in intuitive and contemporary family living, it is remarkable in scale and also feel, with a natural sense of harmony to every space.
The ground floor is dedicated to living and lavish entertaining, with an Ingrid Geldoff designed kitchen as the anchor. Double sinks and a double oven ensure dining en masse is a breeze, be it in the formal dining room or through double-glazed timber doors opening onto multiple outdoor entertaining areas. Also on this floor is the spacious formal lounge with gas fireplace, and a more casual media room for intimate family time.
Yet another substantial living room flows out to a green space and pool house, sporting the indulgent inground indoor heated pool. This area functions effortlessly as a games room or guest accommodation due to the inclusion of its own kitchenette.
Upstairs in the main dwelling, four double bedrooms, two with ensuites, mean room for everyone. All of the bedrooms come with lavish carpeting and their own views from balconies overlooking leafy Fendalton and its surrounds.
An internal double garage is already impressive, but add to that an additional two car garage and you have room for all the vehicles and the toys. The stream boundary at the edge of the park-like grounds with a northwest facing aspect seal the deal.
With TC2 CERA zoning, and crafted from premium plaster over solid concrete construction using the Thermomass system, it is the perfect mix of luxury and liveability. Situated within walking distance to Christchurch Girls and Boys high schools plus Fendalton and Ilam Primary, and with so much more still to discover, it must be viewed.
