+ 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.

15a Garden Rd. Peter Beaven.

Oh dear. This abandoned, sad-looking orphan was once a striking, modern home with a mix of vertical and horizontal timber weatherboards and a great big Oamaru stone fireplace at its heart. C’mon, look into those big, pleading eyes (or windows) and say it’s not worth saving!?

    Hi there,

    Long time reader of this blog, first time poster!

    15a Garden Rd was built for my Grandfather, Mr T H Gibbon in the late 1960s (exact date to follow), to a design by Peter Beaven. I was lucky enough to have a look at the property during a recent open day. According to my mother the building has been substantially altered internally from its original form, however it still retains its stable type doors in many places! Externally it appears almost identical to its original form, the weatherboards are testament to that!
