Topic: 73 River Road, Christchurch

Topic type:

The houseat 73 River Road was once part of a 40-hectare farm that was accessed from Stanmore Rd but is now surrounded by houses.

The title for the plot was first sold in 1851. It is unclear exactly when the house was built, but it was bought by the Templer family in 1876, and photographs from the period show them using the home.

The house was demolished as part of the clearance of the suburban red zone.
