This stunning property is a loving tribute to the old cottage that preceded it on this site. The new building's facade recalls the imposing street-friendly presence of the original cottage, now enhanced by award-winning landscaping that draws looks of admiration and neighbourhood appreciation from all who pass. Old-fashioned sash windows (double-glazed for warmth), bright black and white quoins and copper planters for geraniums complete the welcome.

Behind the electric gates the property opens up to a grassed expanse to the north. A small terrace invites alfresco dining or whiling away the early evening hours as the sun goes down. First floor balconies open up from each bedroom to the same view.

The neighbourhood is quiet, but not far from the restaurants and cafes at the northern end of Stanmore Road. Other local facilities include a nearby supermarket, bus routes and Richmond Playground. A little further afield lies the Wilding Park Tennis centre and The Palms Shopping Mall.

For larger groups, this property is affiliated with two adjoining houses Maison du Ciel (Bookabach #35473) and Maison du Soleil (Bookabach #35475) via a garden gate. So it is possible for larger groups to stay in close proximity, yet maintain privacy when required.

This house received a Gold Award in the Master Builders House of the Year 2015 competition. It has been tastefully decorated and offers internal access from the garage. It is naturally warm but fully appointed with heated ceiling and gas fire in the living areas and each bedroom has built-in panel heaters.

    We've stayed in many villas and houses all over the world but Maison Rouge is by far the best. The house is lavishly decorated and has all the facilities to make your stay pleasurable. The house is located in a quiet neighbourhood, within close reach of many amenities and has a large garden for kids to play. It's within easy reach of the city centre and shopping malls. Danielle also provided complimentary cleaning. We would stay here again when we visit Christchurch. John (UK).

    This house is absolutely beautifully appointed with everything you could possibly want or need. It was very clean and had really nice beds. The location was also great. It was a short Uber ride to downtown, the Farmer's Market, and other Christchurch attracttions. It was also walking distance to several different restaurants and a nice supermarket. If we are ever in Christchurch again, we will definitely stay here again.

    This is honestly one of the best holiday houses we have ever stayed in. There were so many thoughtful and wonderful touches...we felt that we were being treated to a luxury holiday!! Everything was quality such as fluffy towels, comfy beds, excellent showers and a fenced backyard for the kids to run free. The house itself is warm and filled with creative, eclectic interior design and quality fixtures. The neighbourhood was quiet and close to a supermarket. We'll be back! Thanks so much!!
