Who would have thought 8 years ago that a property like this would be obtainable at such an affordable level? Some marvellous architecture has been offered over these last years for a fraction of its value and here is another example.

The current owners, of this signature Thom Craig minimalist masterpiece, have accepted an insurance pay-out and are now offering this on an “As is Where is” uninsured basis. The rear site, itself 1257sqm, arguably in one of Christchurch’s most prestigious streets, will appeal to many, but of course the bonus on offer is a spectacular architectural designed home entirely habitable that may well serve to accommodate a lucky new owner for years to come…and all at a price most will see well worth the risk of no insurance.

We feel some will be drawn to reinstate this house to its former distinction. With solid concrete panels and an imposing façade, unsurprisingly it still stands proud. Just under 350sqm of light filled spaces, this house boasts features too numerous to list here. Skylights allow an abundance of light to flood both levels, and the layout creates family living at its very best. There is both open plan and separate living and a downstairs bedroom. The pool is damaged but functioning and overlooked by towering palms reminiscent of a resort lifestyle! The private garden has a luxuriant and established structure.

With all of these features, difficult and expensive to replicate, why not consider the repair option? With so many Fendalton homes now having been fully repaired or replaced, parcels of land like this are becoming scarce, so if your dream is to build your own ‘tour de force’ then your search for the perfect spot may well be over! Choices are many, but one thing is certain, the underlying land value is a true investment for the future. The owners have moved on and their instructions are clear. This must go!
