Brand new mid-century design

"Looking to the past does not always suggest a craving for what is lost; rather a desire for what can be rediscovered and reinvented."

Ageless architectural excellence is showcased throughout this brand new complex of four apartments, originally known as the 'JJ Connor flats'. Be inspired by an iconic era.

Part of the historic and iconic fabric of Christchurch architecture, this distinctive Warren and Mahoney apartment block was originally crafted in the early 60s, since demolished and re-born post-quake according to the original plans but naturally to the current building code, proving that timeless design never dates.

Scandinavian style meets sixties flair where timber features, stunning concrete beams and clean lines offer immense visual pleasure with double glazing providing modern convenience. When the current owner bought the original apartment over 14 years ago, she loved it for 'its specialness, its unique negative detailing and concrete formwork'. Attributes which still exist today.

This delightful two-bedroom, first floor apartment offers an inviting north facing balcony and comes with undercover parking directly below and a handy lockable storage area.

It features a kitchen with a black bench top inspired by Spanish marble, under-bench oven, ceramic hob, dishwasher and tiled flooring. An inviting gas fire and shelving with an American oak look completes the comfort and convenience of the living area. Built-in rimu wardrobes in both bedrooms provide excellent storage space. It contains an attractive fully tiled bathroom with shower, ceramic basin and WC.

The location is exceptional and promises an enviable lifestyle, next to St Margaret's College and between sought-after Merivale designer shops, boutiques and restaurants, and the city centre with Hagley Park only a stroll away.
