+ 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.

24 Whitewash Head Rd. Stewart Minson.

A Home & Building award winner in 1947 and pleasingly intact. Houses like this are disappearing faster than you can say “recessed halogen downlights”.

    I’ll take this one!!! Beautifully done.

    Is this one of the homes that there is a large set of stairs from the street to get to it?

    Yup, a long path and steps up from the street. Unfortunately, as it the way with these things, a subsequent renovation has removed the appeal of the original home. A real shame.

    This was my grandparents house. I believe my grandfather Bill Ferguson helped build it. They added an upstairs extension in the early 1980s. They lived in it all their married lives and bought up three children there. The house was sold after they both died. I wonder what the new owners did to it? I have many happy memories of my time there. My grandfather always said it was the best house in the world.
