Private Sale

Please email Richard or phone 03 338 7880 to arrange an inspection.


With a brick exterior and Colour Steel roof, this warm, two bedroom townhouse has a single, internal access garage with laundry tub, a separate toilet and separate bathroom. Both bedrooms have large built-in wardrobes. The second bedroom has space for two single beds. The single internal access garage remote controlled main door opens to the west and catches the afternoon sun. A Heat Pump in the living, dining, kitchen area, takes care of the chillier winter evenings. The TV aerial will remain.

Built in 1995, on approximately 253 square metres, it is one of the two, prime, sun-drenched, front units, in a group of six named Hillviews. This lovely, stand alone sunny dwelling is for sale because my aunt, for whom this was home, recently moved into a nursing home and has since died.

A genuine sun trap, the combined open plan, living-dining-kitchen area all face the street to the north, and features a bay window. A separate sliding door gives access to your own screened, courtyard garden.

Situated within easy walking distance to Countdown Supermarket and the Beckenham shopping centre (where my old shop stood, pre-earthquake), restaurants and take-aways, the Medical Centre and pharmacy. The Blue line bus stops just around the corner on Colombo Street to take you into town if you want to avoid parking fees.

Beckenham's South Christchurch Library and Council offices are only a few minutes' drive or bus ride down Colombo Street.

Although this lovely home would suit a retired couple, there are no age restrictions on purchasing as it is not an over 60's property. A young couple or retirees will feel right at home in this little haven.

Properties in this block seldom come to market. In fact two of them are still occupied by the original owners who bought new in 1995.

Rateable Value is $385,000.00.
