3/64 Hapua St, Remuera


A Megson townhouse is on the market - one that came on the market a year or so back, was 'renovated' unsympathetically, fortunately onlny on a small scale, by a graduate architect who had no idea what she was looking at, and is now back on the market and able to be rehabilitated.

Sale details are here. Agent's blurb reads:

Unless sold prior
Architect Claude Megson created this sublime artistic retreat in the 1960s. Fitting like a glove into the Remuera hillside just below Arney Crescent, it's within easy walking distance of Parnell & Newmarket. Despite a compact floorplan, you'll be amazed how light & airy it feels. You'll discover several private spots perfect for reading & relaxing. Although every house-hunting single or couple should see this, the next owner is more likely to be someone who appreciates the architectural significance of a Megson.
