Licensed Real Estate Agent
Thank you for visiting our website about selling and buying houses in the Lyttelton Harbour bays and Coastal suburbs of Christchurch.
The face of parts of our harbour have changed forever. It was with sadness that we looked upon the vacant sites, but now it is with anticipation, expectation and hope. This is exciting era, one of promise and optimism. The harbour remains a beautiful place to live, and it is the people who make it what it is, not just the bricks and mortar. Even now several of the empty sites have new pop up faces - the bakery down now on Norwich Quay, a bar on the site of The old Volcano, the Lyttelton Petanque Club where once was Ground, now there is a new cafe by the new chemists across the road from us and Freemans is well and truely up and running....bring on the furture...we are ready and waiting.
No-one can guarantee absolute benign status anywhere in the world and here is no different. We have property for sale and owners who still wish to continue with their plans and move on. What a fantastic time to buy a property in the harbour, what a new opportunity has been created right here which you might never have anticipated or thought of before! There are some excellent buys right here in the harbour at the moment, opportunities that will be marvelled over in the near future and deeply regretted if not taken advantage of now. This is especially true of building sites and many in the green zone with nothing to impede getting on with the dream.
Take Fitzroy Head for example...where else would you find such stunning sections for $160,000?
It can be easy, patience is called for and a bit of understanding and the buying and selling process has changed forever. But it is not the end of the world yet and you can still go out there and find the home or section of your dreams.

Where is this?
Lyttelton is a thriving portside community with a real buzz offering a cosmopolitan mix of townspeople and a real selection of cafes and restaurants run by internationally experienced restrateurs who now call Lyttelton home. Well travelled ex-pats inevitably find their way through the tunnel or over the hill and instantly see the similarity to what they have left behind without the crush and sqeeze of a population of millions. They see the opportunity to live by the sea or beachfront so close to Christchurch(NZ) and are quick to investigate, earthquakes or no earthquakes.
The Lyttelton farmers market on Saturday mornings has become a convivial meeting place for locals and city folk, as well as the place to go for delicacies and freshness not found elsewhere. It is a true farmers market as they are intended to be. You will be welcomed by the sea air as you come through the tunnel from Christchurch (NZ).
The Bay Communities
The beautiful and picturesque seaside communities of Cass, Governors, Charteris and Purau Bays are safe havens for families as is Diamond Harbour with a choice of two excellent primary schools. The scenic rural areas which separate these pretty communities offer the beauty and seclusion of a rural lifestyle. The opportunity can arise where these properties have beachfront access or access to the many and varied walking tracks available in the harbour close to the sea and city.
How do I get There..?
You can choose to drive the scenic road into or from Christchurch New Zealand either via the winding route over the Port Hills enjoying the amazing views on the way or through the Lyttelton tunnel. There is an excellent ferry service leaving from the Lyttelton wharves and the Diamond Harbour wharf run by Blackcat ferry service. Christchurch city buses will take you right into the city centre.
Where would you like to play..?
Charteris Bay has the prettiest 9 hole golf course, Orton Bradley Park is a perfect weekend destination, the beaches are many and varied, moorings are available at Diamond Harbour, Church Bay and Purau Bay. You can sail on the harbour, walk in the hills, cycle the roads or bike the mountain bike tracks. There's something for everyone. Or the sea and hill views will entertain and relax you while you sit and do nothing.
The suburbs of New Brighton and Sumner, Redcliffs, Scarborough, Mount Pleasant and Clifton offer dramatic views, cosy communities within close proximity to the city but offering a totally different lifestyle. It needn't all be about being on the hills either. there are plenty of flat easy areas as well.
