As the inner city continues its revival, there are ample opportunities to purchase new apartments, but if you love character properties there are very few remaining options available. Part of the P & D Duncan building this 80m2 two bedroom apartment is something unique in the Christchurch market. Built circa 1903 the former foundry was converted into retail and apartments in the 1990s by a local developer who commissioned Warren & Mahoney architects. Testimony to the structural integrity of the original build the complex was largely unaffected by the earthquakes of 2010 and 2011 suffering only moderate damage. Repairs have recently been completed to the building and it is approximately 70% of the NBS. Finishing touches to the garaging and exterior perimeter fencing are currently underway. The interior has been repaired and fully repainted in a tasteful neutral colour scheme which marries well with the various textures on offer. This dwelling provides many appealing features that aren't available in your average apartment: timber flooring, huge beams and trusses, old brick walls, to name a few; even a mezzanine above the bathroom. It is simply not cost-effective to construct apartments in this fashion today and this has to be a real point of difference for owner occupiers or investors alike. Access to the property is restricted via a security gate and there is the added bonus of a detached single garage which is located within the walled grounds. An ideal city pad for out-of-towners or those wishing to live in the heart of the city with numerous attractions practically on your doorstep. Inspection is by appointment and an information pack is available upon request.
