Architect Jim Beard's beachhouse is for sale
We don't normally concern ourselves with real estate, but this property is a bit different. Firstly, the writer knew Jim Beard in the 1970s; he was an architect concerned with environmental friendliness and energy efficiency long before it became fashionable, and secondly it is a house that has featured in books and magazines, such as Long Live the Modern by Julia Gatley (editor).
The house was built in 1964 and renovated in 2004. Although the house is only 95 square metres, the 977 square metres of beachfront land - with a great view of Kapiti Island - it is on gives it all a Ratable Value of just under $1.2 million. Info and pictures
