+ About Christchurch Modern
We're not architects, we're not historians and we don't know much about anything. However we do like modern houses and Christchurch is a great place for them.
If you know of a house that deserves a mention please let us know. If we've made a mistake, do the same. If you like the site, tell your friends. If you hate the site, tell your friends you like it anyway. It's a minor white lie that anyone would forgive.

2 Moncks Spur Rd. Barton House. Walter Linton.

Sitting right on the end of a volcanic spur and overlooking the estuary of the Avon and Heathcote, this wee ripper was built in 1957 and designed by Walter Linton. Perched precariously above Main Road, it’s one of Christchurch’s most well-known houses
