Whether you surf or SUP, you can check out the waves from the front row here! Forever in high demand, the seafront properties along Sumner's Esplanade are the suburb's prime. Rarely available, and tightly held it is not often we can offer a five-bedroom, two living family home in this celebrated position.
Situated on 764sqm with access from both Esplanade and Nayland Street, the property started life as a 1940s bungalow but has recently undergone a complete transformation. Entirely redesigned and rebuilt by one of Christchurch's most illustrious builders, just glimpses of the past remain in new weatherboards replacing old but now sharing space with steel and glowing cedar soaring skyward.
The builder has worked his magic here with exposed steel beams beside Australian and NZ timbers including Matai, Ironbark and Rimu, sleek slate-black flooring tiles and carefully considered outdoor areas capturing the best of the sun, shelter and views. Wide timber stairs lead upstairs to a huge open-plan kitchen living room, surely the central family hub.
Decks front and rear and high windows yield broad views across the ocean, back to the village and high up to Scarborough and the hills beyond. This is a striking modern home with all the comforts and luxuries you might expect, from full double glazing to a comprehensive radiator system throughout, and three gleaming bathrooms.
Outside, away from the seafront, a sheltered garden with decking, lawn and barbecue area makes this an idyllic spot for a growing family. An old garage is currently packed to the rafters with surf boards, and surfing paraphernalia, an excellent endorsement for a new maritime family.
We look forward to meeting you and suspect you may well be 'stoked'!
