This stunning property has been lovingly recreated and rebuilt from scratch to the exact architectural specifications of the 19th century house once at this site. The new cottage encompasses the quaint look, high stud and roominess of the old, but also incorporates the insulation, modern outfitting and comfort of the new.

From the moment you drive your car behind the drive's unique electric gates you enter a safe haven in the city. Before you the light, airy Zen garden designed by the owner and actioned by the master landscaper Lindsay Philps from GoFar Landscaping Company. Pause at this unique, private vista knowing it is yours to enjoy for the duration of your stay.

Once inside the house, explore the 2 generous bedrooms, living area, well-appointed galley kitchen and the "has it all" bathroom. Double-glazed sash windows, ceiling roses and ornate fire-surrounds create a sense of atmosphere harking back to a less stressful era. This attention to detail is, these days, somehow absent in most modern spec homes. Built to last, built to impress, built for safety.

This regenerating area of Christchurch is close to everything. You can start every day with a quick walk to Little Poms cafe for a wonderful breakfast and brunch and later meander down to the famous Pomeroys Public bar and restaurant. Or, by car, continue along Kilmore Street and within two or three minutes you are in the exciting Casino precinct with its Victoria Street dining and bars.

Once you have finished with your evening's activities retire to Fitzgerald Cottage, pop some of your favourite music on through the bluetooth-able sound system and relax in the warmth and comfort of your Christchurch haven.

  • Another great stay here at the cottage

    Another great stay here at the cottage. It is one of our favourite places to stay in Christchurch. We easily walked to the amazing Margaret Many playground and into town with the kids. The beds are so comfy and the house itself was so cosy in the chilly weather. Lovely shower and bathroom! And we ate pears off the tree in the amazing back garden. The kids just love it. We'll be coming back for sure!!

    Very close to the CBD activities we were interested in, like the Tram and the Punting on Avon. Easy walking distance. The house was pure delight. Beautifully decorated; I felt at home with the Only Good Handwash and the Fleur-de-Lis decorative aspects. Just sayin'. We felt very comfortable there. As for the brilliant bathroom; I want one too! Instructions for the use of the house were clear and anything we wanted to ask was quickly dealt with. Thoroughly enjoyed our stay.
