This is a classic Christchurch Villa which has a designers touch in a beautiful part of Christchurch City. You will arrive at this stunning home and wish your stay was longer, no matter how long you have booked for.

Retreat Villa has all the features to make you feel at home from the moment you walk from the front door into the welcoming entrance.  There are three generous  sized Living areas to cater for a variety of needs as you sink into the comfortable, stylish furniture. There is room for those wanting to converse and relax in the sun nearer the kitchen, to be entertained with a large television or to sit quietly and read or talk. The dining area has a fabulous 8-10 seater dining table and is open plan beside the kitchen.  This kitchen really does have the Wow factor.  A massive bench top and island with a 6-burner gas cook top and electric oven, dishwasher, drink fridge plus a large double door fridge.  Added to that are a wide variety of serving platters so that you can make the most of this entertainer’s dream kitchen. 

Then outside, in the north facing, private garden, you will find two seating areas along with a full sized in-ground swimming pool.  There is a huge laundry with washing machine and dryer  and a separate toilet.  This area can double as a changing room since there is direct access out to the swimming pool. The off-street parking can cater for 5 -6 cars.

This home has 6 bedrooms, There are 4 bedrooms downstairs. Bedroom 1 has an ensuite and a Super King bed. Bedroom 2 has a Super King, Bedroom 3 a Queen bed and Bedroom 4 a King bed.  The family bathroom is downstairs with a large shower and a bath.  Upstairs are another 2 x bedrooms with Bedroom 5 having a King bed and Bedroom 6 having a Double bed with another seating area, desk and a Single bed on the landing.
