"What better way to restore Mona Vale Homestead than by reviving its history with interior finishes that evoke a decadent glamour of the spirited."
Step inside a world inspired by William Morris (1834-1896) one of the greatest designers of the Arts & Crafts movement.  Bold printed floral wallpapers combine with white gold accents and the geometric modernism of Art Deco-inspired fabric patterns ... elements of masculinity marry with the femininity through shapes and textures creating spaces that are elegant and sophisticated with flashes of whimsy. 
The doors are open and we invite you to make Mona Vale Homestead once again the backdrop to your special moments be it coffee with a friend, and anniversary celebration or your wedding.   
Many were saddened when Mona Vale Homestead, a much loved and important part of Christchurch heritage, was severely damaged during the 2011 earthquakes. 
Christchurch City Council committed $3.2m and the full talent of its heritage team and many subcontractors into a painstaking two year rebuild, which included thousands of bricks being numbered, taken down and eventually rebuilt around a new steel and timber structure.

We are indebted to the City Council's Project Manager, Heritage Advisor, Heritage Architect and Room Interiors team (design, paint and wallpaper) along with Chantale Heron of Heron Design and Andrew Hopping of Montreuax Furniture (fabrics and furniture) for the stunning results they have produced, sure to be enjoyed by Cantabrians and others for many years to come.  

Now, adding a team of consummate Food & Beverage professionals into the mix, this beautiful historic Christchurch venue and year-round café is set to once again become the centre of Christchurch social events, special occasions and treasured memories.


A little something to whet the appetite?
