About this listing
Definitely not for the faint hearted......the earthquakes have taken their toll on what was once a substantial character residence, this is your opportunity to return this slice of history back to its former glory.

This expansive character villa is steeped in history, according to the Christchurch City Libraries, after a dispute with the Borough Council of the day, the original owner uplifted her Sumner residence, it was carried on two traction engines to Cashmere, and then up the cart track, which later became Dyers Pass Road. The main part of the house came to rest at 8 MacMillan Avenue. The property originally consisted of 11 bedrooms, 6 bathrooms and 6 living areas, which was previously in 6 flats, many of the fixtures and fittings have been removed and the interior walls have been stripped back to the bare bones. If you are in the market for the ultimate doer-upper, then this may be what you have been looking for!

Considered by many as one of Christchurch's finest positions, this prestigious location has an outlook to be envied, with magnificent views across the city to the Alps. A prime location, with generous 1601 sqm grounds.

To be sold 'as is where is', with no EQC or insurance claims to be paid over or assigned. Various reports and information available on request. Please call for further details.
