Mona Vale

63 Fendalton Road
Fendalton, Canterbury
In the last decade of the nineteenth century, Christchurch architect J.C. Maddison designed a large home using brick and half-timbering in a Tudor/Old English style for a city businessman. It was later purchased by the daughter of a wealthy estate owner, who had a charming Gothic gatehouse built on Fendalton Road. The house and its fine gardens have been publicly owned for many years.

If you are keen, Mona Vale can be reached by walking across Hagley Park. It should take about 40 minutes from the centre of the city.

To get there by bus put Mona Vale as the Landmark destination in the Metro Journey Planner.

Mona Vale sustained significant damage in the Christchurch Earthquake of 22 February 2011.

It is expected the homestead will re-open in mid-2016.
