As New, Quality Home, in desirable Oakfields. .. $599,000
Private Sale by Owners
We built this house, to our own specs, as our retirement home, to keep forever. Family drifted northward though, so we are planning to return to Wellington, where the same sort of house will cost us considerably more. Amberley is something of a bargain, but increasing in popularity all the time, especially with the improvements to Christchurch's northern access roads being worked on right now.
We are electing to sell Privately, as we are home most of the time, and quality houses in Oakfields sell themselves.
Oakfields has its own walkways to the shopping complex (including a large Countdown Supermarket) and medical centre, has a quiet country atmosphere, and is 40 metres above sea level, although the sea is just 4 kilometres and about 4 minutes away by road.
Subdivision Covenants include a ban on two-story dwellings, so yards remain private and views don't get ruined.

Worth noting is that the CARPET throughout was replaced in October by the manufacturer, after we detected fade in the original, .. so is only about five months old. (The garage floor is also fully carpeted with a special grey NZ manufactured garage carpet.)
Master bedroom has ensuite and walk-in wardrobe, and Laundry is separate and spacious.
The prevailing winds are easterly from the sea, so the street front side faces this way, giving a lovely sheltered west facing private space.
All four bedrooms are double, and all have built-in wardrobes. (One is currently used as an office.)
