+ 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.

3 Ferrymead Tce. Kiddey House. Stewart Minson.

Overlooking the Ferrymead Bridge and set on a steep site, this pleasingly original vertical weatherboard home is an unusual parallelogram shape to fit the precipitous platform on which it snugly perches. It’s green paint and brown cedar cladding camouflage the home well against the hillside.

    Hello this house currently belongs to my mother. The address is actually 3 Ferrymead Terrace. The house and retaining walls have been substantially damaged in the earthquakes and we are awaiting news on the outcome.

    I have since purchased this house which has been beautifully repaired and the house has largely been repaired to the initial status minus the fireplaces, but the retaining walls are good. The downstairs room has been made into a further bedroom, but the bones of the house are still very much there -a gorgeous house for the period that it was built in and it still looks great for the current period. Again like his other houses it has been well sited for weather deflection on the site.

    Hi, Stewart Minson was my grandfather. So pleased that the house was repaired, and that there are still some fine examples of his work after the devastation of the earthquake.
