This 4 (really 5 counting the large office) bedroom house is a 100 year old villa with a magical view of Ihutai / Christchurch estuary. It is solar powered and the sun streams in the living room and master bedroom, both with expansive views of the estuary and over to the sea and the mountains to the west. There are 2 heatpumps, 1 upstairs and one downstairs. There is one bathroom upstairs (with a bath/shower and toilet and handbasin) and one downstairs (with a shower and toilet and handbasin).

The space
The house is a 100 year old villa, one of the first houses on the hill - which makes it one of the best situated, low down so you feel you are part of the estuary environment, and with a generous garden. Rangatira Terrace is a very quiet street. Hardly any cars will drive past. The house has 4 bedrooms and a fifth large room which can be an office or quiet area, with a heat pump and fold-out sofa which can be an extra bed. The entrance is on one level for ease of access, with the lounge, kitchen, bathroom, main bedroom and 1 childrens room (and the separate laundry) all on the entrance level. Downstairs is an additional shower/toilet, with a queen size bedroom and a children's bedroom and the office/sitting room.

Guest access
There is a generous garden. Some guests may walk past the house to another airbnb.

Other things to note
Other airbnb guests may walk past the house to another house next door, and may share parking spaces (there are spaces onsite for 2-3 cars, and plenty more only a minute away).

There is a children's playground 1 minutes walk from the house, and tennis courts also a minute or so away (a donation of $5 per adult). The house is on the coveted lower slopes of St Andrews Hill - no long drive up the hill needed and just a few minutes walk from the causeway and estuary.

Mt Pleasant (also known as St Andrews Hill) is ideally situated, 10 minutes drive from the city, 3 minutes from supermarket, shops, restaurants and cafes in Ferrymead, and 7 minutes from Sumner beach and village. There is a cycleway/walkway going from the bottom of the hill (3 minutes walk) to Redcliffs and on to Sumner.
