A North Dunedin scarfie flat has been given a paint job with a difference after an "eccentric'' property developer commissioned a graffiti artist to decorate its street-facing wall.
The Duke St flat was painted by Dunedin artist Jonathan Waters along the theme of the flat's name "Legendairy'', which plays on the fact it was once a dairy.
Property developer Mike Harbott said he liked to do things a little differently and was keen to spruce up what was a "pretty hideous'' frontage.
"I'm all about trying to get good tenants in and give them a good environment to enjoy their experience in scarfie land,'' Mr Harbott said.
The flat also had a high-definition projector with built-in surround sound and a grandstand in the lounge. And Mr Harbott was about to install a slide at another of his properties.
He described himself as an "eccentric'' property developer. He also used virtual-reality technology to allow prospective tenants to look around his properties before they signed a lease.
University of Otago student Nathan Laurie (19) said he and his six flatmates were impressed with Mr Waters' work, which was completed a little over a week ago.
"You do feel a little bit special living in the flat. All the time people are walking past, slowing down and having a little look."
