This lovely house once stood in Papanui Road Merivale, Christchurch but it was demolished in about 2006 to build a few truly horrible motel units.

I had one look inside the house when it was still occupied. It was beautiful (dated of course) with a tiled fireplace in Minimalist Art Deco style with cream glazed tiles and chromium decoration as I recall.

The curved glass in steel framed windows is very unusual - although there does appear to have been two similar houses built by the same designer/architect/builder in Papanui Road and even one (possibly)in Oamaru.
