Steve Hansen’s Prebbleton home on 5.6ha has been sold, two months after it was passed in at auction.
Former All Black coach Steve Hansen and wife Natasha have sold their lifestyle block on the outskirts of Christchurch.
Listing agent Brendan Shefford of Ray White Rolleston confirmed the Prebbleton property has been sold to a retired farming couple.
“There is a confidentiality agreement in place so we can’t say what price it fetched.” Shefford also said the sale has not yet been settled.
The house, which is valued at $2.625 million, went to auction on November 1, 2019, but was passed in. At that time, Shefford said there were several interested parties. Records show the Hansens paid $1.8 million for the house in August 2016.

The Hansens also disposed of their Wanaka home in early November. That house sold after just one week on the market.
The five-bedroom, five-bathroom house in Forest Heights sold for $2.7 million, which is $990,000 above the $1,710,000 RV.
A Ray White spokesperson said the Wanaka team received “significant interest” and had two offers on the table within the week. But it’s likely the buyer did not know who the owner was. “We didn’t publicise that it was his house.”
The new owners of the Prebbleton property will be moving into a Registered Master Builders’ award-winning 520 square-metre house with five bedrooms, a media room, award-winning kitchen, extensive outdoor living areas and a pool.
The 2.78ha property includes gardens and a substantial paddock – big enough for your own rugby pitch.
Meanwhile, the Hansens’ immediate future lies in Japan, where Steve Hansen will be coaching Japanese Top League club Toyota Verblitz.
