Living the dream…

56 Purau Port Levy Rd, Purau Valley, Lyttelton Harbour

Price: $799,000

4 bedrooms | 2 bathrooms | 2 living rooms | 2 car garage | Listing Number: 8885

A charming, delightful 1950’s bungalow set

on nearly 1 acre of flat and very productive

land. North facing, sheltered, sunny and

private, this charming home is in excellent

order throughout having been loved and

carefully maintained over the years.

The top level of the house comprises 2

living areas, a large modern farmhouse style

kitchen with plenty of storage, a massive

master bedroom with adjoining bathroom

and a single bedroom currently used as an


The master bedroom opens onto a covered

North facing verandah with a cosy coveredin

area with a day bed, the perfect place to

enjoy the afternoon sun, peace and birdlife

and to while away a few hours. Downstairs,

(externally accessed) are 2 double bedrooms,

bathroom and a kitchenette/dining area so

semi self-contained, perfect for extended

family or teenagers.

This is a rare opportunity to purchase in

the beautiful picturesque Purau Valley and to

obtain a small manageable holding like this is

really one of a kind.

The land is a mixture of lawns, gardens

and the most established and productive

orchard I have ever seen, with many many

fruit trees established vege beds and native

plantings. There is excellent access, a large

double garage, greenhouse and other useful

sheds and most importantly excellent water


My vendors are retiring very reluctantly

and have loved every minute of the 10 years

they have spent here.

Purau Bay is approximately 30 minutes’

drive from Christchurch, making it a highly

desirable destination as it is so useable being

close to Christchurch.

Properties in this lovely valley and by

such a safe swimming beach are defying all

the odds and selling fast generally as they

come up very seldom. Excellent swimming,

boating, walking and stunning sunsets on

the hills, quick and easy access to Lyttelton

via the Diamond Harbour ferry (approx. 5

mins), local shops, cafés and bar make this a

fun filled place to visit.

Properties here make an excellent

investment and Purau Bay and valley is a

truly magical place to live.
