Was a much-loved family home for many years, this 1970s Lockwood tucked away on a quiet cul-de-sac in family-friendly Avonhead, awaits new owners to appreciate its immaculate presentation and nostalgic beauty or alternatively, take on the challenge of renovating to ready it for another round.
Renowned for their resilience, natural timber strength and interlocking construction system, Lockwood's lend themselves perfectly to dramatic transformations should you wish to take advantage of its highly functional layout and undertake a cosmetic refresh. This home performed brilliantly in the recent earthquakes with virtually no damage except the shower.
Elevated with a huge basement double garage, the floorplan hosts five bedrooms, two bathrooms, a separate laundry and three living spaces over a split-level configuration ensuring ample room for large families. On the upper level, you'll find the open plan kitchen, dining and living zone with sliders opening to the balcony. It's also home to two double bedrooms, including the master with ensuite, and the family bathroom.
Downstairs accommodates the children's wing with a further three single bedrooms along with the second living area and an adjoining conservatory, which is perfectly positioned to catch the last of the day's sun.
With a wood burner on the upper level and a heat pump down below, you're well covered for the cooler months.
Set on a generously proportioned 688sqm section, a large expanse of flat lawn sits ready for children and pets to play. The attractive, well-kept gardens offer low maintenance plantings and room remains to enhance with further landscaping.
Located superbly close to Riccarton Racecourse and Ferrier Park, with zoning for Avonhead School and Riccarton High, this comfortable home will serve its next family for years to come. Contact me for to find out more.
