Our home

The townhouse is our city base for when we escape the daily life on the farm 3 hours south of Christchurch. It is one of two townhouses with a stream boundary. It is quiet and peaceful yet close to all the attractions that Christchurch has to offer (shopping, movies, theatre, museums, art galleries and all sorts of dining experiences). The townhouse has a small sunny courtyard to relax in for summer and a conservatory for winter months. It has a mezzanine king bedroom with ensuite, a queen bedroom downstairs and a futon in the living area for extra guests. It also has full kitchen and laundry facilities.

Property features

Who we are

  1. My husband Kieran and I (Julie) are in our early 50's. We have lived and worked on our family farm on the banks of the Waitaki River in South Canterbury for the last 28 years. I am a teacher and have taught part time all my married life. We have brought up 3 wonderful, now grown up sons. It is because they are now travelling that we are looking to travel next year to meet up with them. Our eldest son is going to be doing the harvest in the UK and has recently got engaged and our youngest son is studying at Uppsala University in Sweden on a years exchange. Our middle son has just got his degree and is job hunting. We have travelled to the UK and Europe before and loved it but have not done an exchange before. We are interested because we would love to be able to feel part of a place and have a base rather than be just tourists.

Where is it?

Your neighbourhood

Ideally located Fendalton is a central suburb. It is only minutes from the beautiful Hagley Park. It has its own mall, supermarket and plenty of dining options. It is only minutes away from Riccarton, Merrivale and Northlands mall three of Christchurches largest shopping malls. The townhouse is close to the airport and has easy access to routes out of Christchurch to pursue the many and varied opportunities beyond Christchurch but close enough for wonderful day trips. A car is not essential as there are good bus services near by but car exchange is offered if desired. We also have a self contained flat renovated in 2008 on the farm that is also available to be used as part of any exchange. Exchanges do not need to be simultaneous.
