Spirited Living: A Blend of Old and New

SOLD - This listing was sold in December 2019
This utterly unique home takes an iconic piece of local history, adds a remarkable contemporary dwelling alongside and wraps them together with loving care - and clever interior design - all in a sensational inner-city location. Enjoying a leafy outlook across Cranmer Square, it's just a four-minute stroll to Hagley Park, 6 minutes to Victoria Street or 11 minutes to Riverside Market and the heart of the city. Zoning for Elmwood School, Heaton, Boys' High and Girls' High, as well as proximity to private schools, ensures this is also a practical family home.

Incorporating the heritage-listed Cranmer Bridge Club building, designed by Samuel Hurst Seager, the owners embarked on an ambitious four-year project to design and build a new home on the site (a process featured on Grand Designs NZ). A spectacular soaring atrium combines old and new, pulling light into the home and drawing guests upstairs to the contemporary living space. A black interior offsets the warmth of timber and frames glimpses of the world beyond through carefully placed windows. Open-plan living and dining flows to the kitchen and breakfast room - a visual feast of cathedral ceilings, rich textures and cleverly placed lighting (both natural and electric). A sheltered terrace invites outdoor living and a separate media room and bedroom (utilised as an office) complete this level. Downstairs, the master suite includes a WIR and private bathroom, and there's a second bedroom and bathroom, large workshop/utility space and double internal-access garage. In the old timber building, original details are lovingly restored and the space has been repurposed as a self-contained space with studio bedroom, separate lounge, kitchenette and bathroom.

This is your opportunity to own a truly iconic piece of Christchurch. Contact the agent without delay to register your interest.
