3/64 Hapua St, Remuera – Claude Megson
This small Megson townhouse is on the market - one that came on the market a year or so back, and was bought and 'renovated' unsympathetically, fortunately only on a small scale, by a graduate architect who had no idea what she was working with.
By craftily making the most of view shafts and ‘shared spaces,’ Megson made this small, contained location feel like a large estate.
Now that it’s back on the market, a sympathetic buyer would be able to easily rehabilitate it. Sale details are here. Agent's blurb reads:

3/64 Hapua StAuction at L4, 50 Kitchener St, City on 25/02/2009 at 11:00am Unless sold priorArchitect 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.
