As Twiggy famously said, “The sixties were a time when ordinary people could do extraordinary things”, which was often expressed in the architecture from the period and this home is no exception.

Designed by renowned Aotearoa architect William Taurau Royal as his family home, packed full of quirky elements such as the sunken lounge, a built-in entertainment centre with a bar and provision for a record player, exposed beams and a plethora of architecturally significant features – this home is ready for a stylish new family to call home.

This property features:
– Located on a fully fenced corner block, the large yard provides space for kids to play and pets to run.
– Situated in the Burnside High School zone and walking distance to Isleworth Primary and Breens Intermediate schools.
– Four large bedrooms all with built-in wardrobes.
– The main bedroom offers two built-in wardrobes, plus en-suite.
– The family bathroom has been freshly renovated with standalone shower, bath and a separate toilet.
– The living options are plentiful from the sunken lounge situated under soaring ceilings to the open plan kitchen (with ample pantry space) and dining areas, there is space for the whole family to hangout and great options for entertaining.
– Sliding shoji screen doors throughout the living areas allow you to adjust the spaces to suit your needs.

With a change in circumstances for the current family, this much-loved home is reluctantly being offered to the market and requires a sold sticker on or before auction day. There aren’t many homes left in Christchurch with such architectural significance, now is your chance to secure a wonderful slice of 1960’s history.
