About this listing

SOLD - This listing was sold in March 2015.

Peter Beaven's enduring style is beautifully illustrated within "Tonbridge Mews" - a masterfully designed townhouse complex crafted in 1974 which continues to deliver distinctive and delightful living.

All the classic Modernist touches are here: concrete block, roughsawn timber and pitched ceilings. Thanks to the architect's deft touch & impeccable sense of proportion, light & space are beautifully employed throughout. This is no cookie cutter "clone" development, each townhouse includes subtle variations in layout, providing individuality with a hint of whimsy.

Our subject property offers two bedrooms, open plan living, conservatory and a private courtyard with its own access off Shrewsbury Street. While neutral in its d├ęcor, scope remains to further update and implant your own taste. A single lock-up garage and zoning for Christchurch Boys & Girls' High School are further advantages.

We foresee the lucky new owners (or tenants, should you choose to add this blue-chip address to your investment portfolio) will soon be enjoying strolls in nearby Hagley Park, followed by brunch at one of the many nearby cafes. With immediate possession available, the motivation of our sellers means you better be quick.
