Decision

to restrict

access

to ferry

terminal

met with

petition

• By Sarla Donovan

AN ONLINE petition calling

for better public access to the

Diamond Harbour ferry terminal

has attracted 170 signatures in

one week.

Set up by the Diamond Harbour

Residents Association, the

petition calls on the city council

and Environment Canterbury to

“ensure that within 100m of the

Diamond Harbour ferry terminal,

there is adequate bus parking

on the Lyttelton wharf and that

there is a drop-off/pick-up zone

for private vehicles.”

It follows a decision by the

Lyttelton Port Company to

reduce bus parking spaces from

three to one and not provide a

pick-up/drop-off zone.

The Banks Peninsula Community

Board is to have an urgent

meeting with the LPC, ECan and

the city council on Monday, to

discuss the changes.

FROM

THE

EDITOR’S

DESK

THE PRESSURE continues to

build on the authorities over public

access to the Diamond Harbour

ferry terminal in Lyttelton.

We report on page 1 today an

online petition over the issue has

attracted 170 signatures in a week.

The Diamond Harbour

Residents Association isn’t overly

chuffed with what’s happening on

the Lyttelton side and are showing

they are willing to fight.

The petition is targeted at the

city council and Environment

Canterbury as a way of circumnavigating

some of the port company’s

plans.

What the residents’ association

now needs is for the community

board to stand alongside them and

ensure the changes to the terminal

are passenger friendly.

As I said previously, the ferry

terminal at Lyttelton is a shocker,

and well overdue for a revamp.

Critical to that revamp is making it

passenger-friendly. – Barry Clarke

Maori village goes to the dogs

• By Bridget Rutherford and

Sarla Donovan

THE FERRYMEAD site that

was once home to the failed

Christchurch Maori Village

could be turned into a dog park.

City councillor Yani Johanson

and the Linwood-Central-

Heathcote Community Board

have asked city council staff to

prepare a

report on

whether the

site could

be used as a

dog exercise

area.

The village

was set up

Tamaki, in 2007 but closed after

the earthquakes because of

financial issues.

Several larger buildings

at the park were dismantled

and transported back to the

company’s Rotorua base after

its closure in 2012, while huts

and fencing from the replica Pa

were sold to the Ko Tane Living

Maori Village at Christchurch’s

Willowbank Wildlife Park.

The former landfill was remediated

by the city council as part

of its agreement with Tamaki

Heritage Experiences.

In 2014, the city council

sought registrations of interest

but failed to attract anyone.

Cr Johanson said the site

would be suited to a dog park.

“There is a shortage of dog exercise

can take dogs) and there’s often

stock grazing up at John Britten

There were dedicated dog

exercise spaces in other parts of

the city, including The Groynes,

Victoria Park and Halswell

Quarry.

“This area and the central city

are the two that stand out as not

having a dedicated dog park.”

PLAN: A report on whether

the former Maori village

site in Ferrymead could be

turned into a dog park is

expected before Christmas.

Christchurch has experienced

growth in dog numbers over

Cr Johanson said he expected

on the idea before Christmas.

RSA exploring options for clubrooms

• By Sarla Donovan

THE Sumner-Redcliffs RSA

has been caught in no-man’s

land since the February 22,

2011, earthquake destroyed its

Wakefield Ave clubrooms.

Builder Ian Caldwell, 47, died

when boulders from a cliff face

crashed onto the RSA and a

building site next door.

The building was red-stickered

and subsequently demolished in

2014.

Since then, the club has been

without a headquarters and there

are no current plans to rebuild.

“We can’t,” president Bill Joines

told the Bay Harbour News. “We

don’t have any land.”

Though the club has been looking

at different options, there’s

nothing concrete on the horizon.

“We’re sounding out different

places at the moment. We’ve had

an insurance payout, but I don’t

know if it will go to the extent of

rebuilding.”

Sumner-Redcliffs RSA was

started in 1932, as a sub-branch

of the Christchurch RSA.

Early activities in the first year

involved smoko, a social evening

attended by the mayor and the

club’s first annual dance.

However, the new club looked

after more than just social events.

With high unemployment at

that time, it was called upon to

earthquakes, from 200-300 down

With no base, the regulars now

meet at Sumner’s Village Inn on

Thursdays at 5pm.

Kitty Fenton is one of them –

she says there’s usually about a

dozen people there.

“We meet and have a bit of a

yarn, a catch up and a drink.

Then at 6pm, the president says

the Ode of Remembrance, ‘Lest

We Forget.’”

She says after six years, she’s

got used to not having a building.

Mr Joines, who served in the

SAS from 1955-58, said one of

the options they would consider

was joining another local club,

similar to what the New Brighton

RSA had done.

It’s now linked with the New

Brighton Bowling Club with

which it shares a room, becoming

the New Brighton Bowling Club

and RSA.

Sumner Bowling Club secretary

Colin Thompson said the

idea had been brought up informally

in the past, but no formal

approach had been made by the

Sumner RSA.

Mr Thompson wouldn’t comment

on whether the club would

be open to the idea, saying it

would be up to the committee.

The bowling club’s Richmond

Hill Rd clubrooms are being

rebuilt next year, with work

expected to start in April.

Meanwhile, two 1947 bronze

plaques commemorating the Anzacs

– placed on stone columns at

the entrance to the former RSA

clubrooms – are to be brought

out of storage and the columns

rebuilt.

The city council is working

with stonemasons on the project

and will look at reusing some

of the original stone, which

was salvaged and stockpiled in

Lyttelton.

Rawi Joines said she was looking

forward to the columns being

completed before next year’s

Anzac day commemorations.

Working group to look

at future of Scott Park

• By Sarla Donovan

A WORKING group looking

at the layout and future

development of Scott Park in

Mt Pleasant will meet next

Wednesday.

The group was set up after

Coastal Pathway Group chairman

Scott Babington last month

raised concerns about public access

to the Scott Park foreshore

near the Ferrymead Bridge.

Mr Babington said the meeting

next week would be a chance

to start developing an overall

masterplan for park users. “We

want to know what it’s going to

look like in 10 years time.”

The working group will

include Linwood-Central-

Heathcote Community Board

chairwoman Sally Buck and

board members Tim Lindley

and Darrell Latham. The Coastal

Pathway Trust, Mt Pleasant Residents

Association, Windsport

Association, Christchurch Yacht

Club and the Mt Pleasant Scouts

have also been invited.

Mr Babington last month told

the board fenced-off planting

and the Mt Pleasant Yacht club’s

new boatshed was making water

IMPOSING:

Yacht Club’s

access difficult for the public.

The boatshed was built this

year to replace one damaged in

the Canterbury earthquakes.

With a footprint of 486m2

and maximum height of 7.3m,

it is substantially larger than the

building it replaced, which was

275m2 and approximately 4m

high.

A condition of the build,

which wasn’t publicly notified,

required the club to plant and

maintain totara trees between

the building and the coastal

pathway.

Dr Latham said he wanted to

get a better overview of the issues

relating to Scott Park.

“I’m particularly interested

in the access to the public boat

ramp and jetty below the Ferrymead

Bridge footpath and to

the legal paper road that goes

right along the foreshore in front

of the shed and clubhouse.”

He said it was curious that

the Coastal Pathway ran along

the edge of Main Rd rather than

along the foreshore.

Mr Babington said the group

had wanted the Coastal Pathway

to go beside the water but were

put off during the design development

stage.

“We were very keen to go

along the foreshore but one of

the city council employees spoke

very strongly . . . that yachting

sports needed priority.”

The meeting would provide

the opportunity to “seek clarification

on a range of issues,” Mr

Babington said.

GINGER CAT Mandu has a new

home.

Mandu featured in the Bay

Harbour News last month after

he made friends with residents of

Edith Cavell Lifecare in Sumner.

A resident, Denise Brown,

wanted to make sure he had a

home, so she put out the call for

the owner to get in touch.

But no-one came forward to

claim the ginger tom, so he’s now

been adopted by the daughter of

90-year-old Ed Cotter, who was

one of his favourite residents at

the rest home (hence the name,

short for Kathmandu.)

Mr Cotter was part of the first

and Ed Hillary.

Ms Brown said she very pleased

Mandu had found a stable home

with Jacqui Cotter, who lives in

Brighton.

“He went off quite happily

on Saturday; he’s already been

micro-chipped and the vet said

he was two-years-old and a lovely

cat.”

Although some residents were

upset to see him go, “one of the

cooks cried,” Ms Brown said

people were pleased he’d found a

A Column of Fire

By Ken Follett

The saga that has enthralled the millions of readers of The Pillars

of the Earth and World Without End now continues with Ken

Follett’s magnificent, gripping A Column of Fire. Christmas 1558,

and young Ned Willard returns home to Kingsbridge to find his

world has changed. The ancient stones...Kingsbridge Cathedral

look down on a city torn by religious hatred. Europe is in turmoil

as high principles clash bloodily with friendship, loyalty and

love, and Ned soon finds himself on the opposite side from the

girl he longs to marry, Margery Fitzgerald. Then Elizabeth Tudor

becomes queen and all of Europe turns against England. The

shrewd, determined young monarch sets up the country’s first

secret service to give her early warning of assassination plots,

rebellions and invasion plans. The true battle pitches those who

believe in tolerance and compromise against the tyrants who

would impose their ideas on everyone else - no matter the cost.

The Thunderbolt Pony

By Stacy Gregg

A dramatic and emotional story about one girl’s determination to stand

by her beloved animals – and her refusal to give up, even in the face of

impossible odds. When a devastating earthquake hits Evie’s hometown

of Parnassus on New Zealand’s South Island, she and the rest of the

town are forced to evacuate. Evie’s injured mum is one of the first to be

rescued by helicopter and Evie will be next. But when she realises that

she will be forced to leave her beloved pony, Gus, her dog, Jock, and

her cat Moxy behind, she is determined to find another way. Before the

rescue helicopter returns, Evie flees with Gus, Jock and Moxy in a race

against time across difficult terrain to reach the port of Kaikoura, where

she has heard that people will be evacuated by ship in three days’

time. Surely there will be space for her, Gus, Jock and Moxy there?

But the journey is harder than Evie could ever have imagined, and

with aftershocks constantly shaking, Evie will have to draw on all her

bravery, strength, and resilience to bring her and her animals to safety

... and hope that they reach the boat in time.

The Wonderling By Mira Bartok

In this extraordinary debut novel with its deft nod to Dickensian heroes

and rogues, Mira Bartók tells the story of Arthur, a shy, fox-like foundling

with only one ear and a desperate desire to belong, as he seeks his

destiny. Welcome to the Home for Wayward and Misbegotten Creatures,

an institution run by evil Miss Carbunkle, a cunning villainess who

believes her terrified young charges exist only to serve and suffer. Part

animal and part human, the groundlings toil in classroom and factory,

forbidden to enjoy anything regular children have, most particularly

singing and music. For the Wonderling, an innocent-hearted, one-eared,

fox-like eleven-year-old with only a number rather than a proper name -

a 13 etched on a medallion around his neck - it is the only home he has

ever known. But unexpected courage leads him to acquire the loyalty of

a young bird groundling named Trinket, who gives the Home’s loneliest

inhabitant two incredible gifts: a real name - Arthur, like the good king

in the old stories - and a best friend. Using Trinket’s ingenious invention,

the pair escape over the wall and embark on an adventure that will take

them out into the wider world and ultimately down the path of sweet

Arthur’s true destiny.

Bid to manage harbour gullies

City council

investigates

committee’s

request

• By Sarla Donovan

MORGAN’S GULLY and

Sam’s Gully could be included

in the Diamond Harbour

Reserve Management

Committee brief.

The Banks Peninsula

Community Board has asked

city council staff to investigate

the possibility after a request

from the committee last week.

Though neither is a legal

reserve, committee member

Thomas Kulpe told the

board it made sense to take

responsibility for managing

the gullies, as it meant the

committee could officially

commit resources to their

development and maintenance.

“It would (also) provide

a democratic forum where

the principles of the reserve

committe can be applied. The

problem at the moment is

there’s no agreed principles

and no vision for the amenities

(which have been developed).

RESPONSIBLE: The Diamond Harbour Reserve Management Committee wants Sam’s

Gully (above) and Morgan’s Gully to come under its brief.

There’s no co-ordination

between organisations and no

single point of contact.”

The gullies sit in the

middle of a 38ha block of city

council-owned land, orginally

purchased by a previous

council to provide land for

housing.

Community groups have

extensively planted both gullies

and developed a footpath

linking Diamond Harbour

School to Waipapa Ave.

THANK YOU FOR

YOUR SUPPORT

Thank you to everyone who

supported me and the National

Party during the election

campaign. I look forward to

continuing to work hard for you as

the National List MP based

in the Port Hills.

Nuk Korako

Authorised by Nuk Korako, 6/950 Ferry Rd,

Ferrymead, Christchurch

Previous attempts at having

the gullies reserved have

been rejected by the city

council.

Mr Kulpe said they weren’t

trying to “gain reserve

status by stealth”, but by

improving the amenity value

of the area it “may increase

the attractiveness of the

surrounding residential land in

the future”.

A city council property

review currently under way

has put a question mark over

the future of the land-block the

gullies sit within, along with

about 30 other city councilowned

properties across Banks

Peninsula.

However, community

board chairwoman Christine

Wilson, board member John

McLister and Deputy Mayor

Andrew Turner have all said

they wouldn’t support any land

being sold if it went against

community wishes.

week the community board had

asked for the meeting after the

newspaper revealed two weeks

ago the LPC’s decision to reduce

bus parking spaces to one and not

provide a pick-up/drop-off zone.

Diamond Harbour Residents

Association chairman Richard

Suggate told a board meeting last

week that the LPC’s refusal to

provide a drop-off zone would

force the infirm, disabled or

with heavy parcels, to walk from

Norwich Quay.

He said the ferry was the only

link for Diamond Harbour residents

if there were road closures

and access should be suitable for

people with disabilities, the elderly

and very young, “including

not having to use steps or walk

long distances.”

Port company chief executive

Peter Davie said LPC staff met

with the Banks Peninsula Community

Board on July 31.

“At that meeting staff showed

board members the plans for

the Diamond Harbour ferry

upgrade and changed access for

the buses. Our plans have not

changed since presenting them

to the Community Board in July.

“At the July meeting we explained

to the community board

that there will be a reduction in

space for the buses to park. LPC

“An upgrade of the existing

same time as the LPC staff car

Waterfront House, the new LPC

operations building. The work

should be completed before

Christmas.

“After the upgrade, the existing

and safety. The upgrade also

We are delighted to provide this

as we know the community has

been keen on stair access for

some time.

“Currently people cannot drive

to the ferry and we have installed

a sign on the bridge to remind

people that the bridge is for port

traffic and buses only. We are

very happy to facilitate access

for people who need to drop

goods off or who are physically

impaired.

“We will work with Black Cat

Cruises to enable people to have

access. If there are particular

items that require to be around

50m closer to the ferry terminal

than they can achieve via the

stairs, then we will accommodate

them through the port,’’ Mr

Davie said.

Sumner swimming pool

faces funding shortfall

LEAKS IN the Sumner

community pool have been fixed

ahead of the November opening

– but the pool committee is now

nearly $7000 in the red.

An application to the Linwood-

Central-Heathcote Community

Board’s discretionary fund to

help it cover the cost was declined,

as the repairs are considered

capital works and don’t fit

the fund’s criteria.

The pool committee is now

looking for other funding sources

to help cover the $6688 cost.

Most of the running costs for

the community-owned and managed

pool come from key rental,

with about 360 keys available for

local families to rent at $150 a

season.

Committee member Liz Beaglehole

said the leaks had to be

fixed as they were pushing up the

operational costs of heating and

chlorinating water.

She was confident of finding

other avenues of funding.

The pool, which is used by local

school and community groups

and families, is run by a committee

of volunteers.

It opens for the summer season

on November 11 at 7am.

Dimaond Harbour pupils have

no trouble with Aladdin show

SCHOOLS

THE DIAMOND Harbour

School production, Aladdin

Trouble, wowed the crowd at the

Diamond Harbour community

hall.

The pantomime-style musical

was filled with puns, corny dad

jokes and, of course, a lot of

singing. Every pupil was involved

from the leading roles by year

7s and 8s to dance routines and

small acting roles for those in

years 0-6.

The leading roles were

performed by Flora Dean as

Scherazarde, Alex Cameron

as the Sultan, Olive Tuipulotu

as the Genie, with the baddie,

Abanazar, played by Adam

Anderson, and eventual love

birds, Aladdin and Jasmine, were

played by Tane Payne and Anna

Clinch.

The show wouldn’t have been

complete without a pantomime

dame – Widow Twankey was

played by the extremely funny

Darcy McMillan.

Deputy principal Fiona Rice

thanked everyone who helped

behind the scenes with props

and costume-making. “It really

wouldn’t work without that

support.” Year 7 pupil Poppy

Kirkwood played one of the

Gems who danced in Alladin’s

cave of wonders.

She said being involved in

Aladdin Trouble was tough

but rewarding. “I loved the

production this year but it was

hard work to keep up with school

work and choreograph dances,

plus learn my lines. But overall it

was really fun.”

LYTTELTON SUPER VALUE

The Lyttelton Rugby Club would like to thank all their sponsors

for their support for our 52nd annual Titahi Bay Trip 2017

Richie Cummings

Wesley White

Lisa Stiles

Zane Nuttall

The 52nd annual Lyttelton /Titahi Bay trip was another

successful event. This year the Lyttelton U13’s travelled

to Titahi Bay/Norths to play for the Challenge Shield and

then hosted the Titahi Bay/Norths team two weeks later.

Although the Lyttelton team were beaten in both games,

the games were played in good spirit with Lyttelton playing

adventurous rugby right to the end, although out played by

a better team.

Special thank you must go out to all our sponsors and

supporters for their support towards this historic annual

trip.

Without your support this trip would not continue. As trip

organiser I, Clinton Norris would like to make special thanks

to Linda Preddy (Junior Club Captain) and Jodie Goodmanson

(Club Treasurer) for their outstanding efforts in making this

a successful weekend due to my absence due to illness.

Port urged to leave

ferry service alone

Diamond Harbour

resident and Banks

Peninsula Community

Board Mt Herbert

representative, Felix

Dawson, is unhappy

with proposed

changes to the ferry

terminal

Lyttelton Port Company is currently in

the process of upgrading the Diamond

Harbour ferry terminal services. This

includes a re-configured waiting area,

replacement of the previously removed

pedestrian bridge and reduction of the bus

parking area. The reduced bus area will

exclude the opportunity for car drop-offs

on the wharf, and possibly remove the bus

pick-up service, relocating it to Norwich

Quay. So the ferry upgrade involves a

reduction in service.

Black Cat has recently advised the

Banks Peninsula Community Board

that the ferry service provides more than

100,000 passenger trips annually. This

is made up of residents and visitors. For

Diamond Harbour residents, the alternative

transport option is a 35min winding

drive. A recent slip off the side of the road

in Church Bay has reduced the road to

one lane. Any more slippage and the road

is gone, with the only alternative a back

road – little more than a badly paved stock

route currently littered with sink holes,

arising it would seem from a poorly laid

sewer. If these roads become unusable –

which is possible – the ferry becomes the

only access to Diamond Harbour.

The ferry service matters.

LPC is currently proposing to reduce the

service to “make better utilisation of the

land”. That is, to provide car parks for its

staff who are being shifted into their new

offices about 400m away. So is the best utilisation

car parking for about 100 people

or public transport for 100,000?

What is it with LPC? When it applied for

a 40ha land reclamation consent, it argued

that among other benefits, it would enable

logs to be shifted from in front of Norwich

Quay. It has reclaimed about 10ha which

is now covered in newly-imported parked

cars. LPC recently advised the board that

moving the logs is 10 years away.

On day one of the harbour dredging

consent, the first question to LPC from the

commissioner, fresh from reading about

the new cruise ship berth to be built, was:

Is the dredging required for the cruise

ships?

The LPC representative smoothly advised

the panel that the answer was no, as

the cruise ships have a shallow draft. We

are now told that the appeal on the granting

of the dredging consent will delay the

cruise ship berth. Sorry local businesses.

Now we have a multi-million dollar

must-have office build without adequate

parking, and for the sake of one bus park

the poor old commuters will have to walk.

Come on LPC – you guys are paid the

big bucks. Do the job, do the right thing.

Start talking to the users.

Retain the current ferry service.

Sixty Seconds

You can never go back - but can you forgive?

by Jesse Blackadder

Inspired by the author’s own family experience.

The Brennans - parents, Finn and Bridget, and their sons, Jarrah and Toby

- have made a sea change, from chilly Hobart to subtropical Murwillumbah.

Feeling like foreigners in this land of sun and surf, they’re still adjusting to

work, school, and life in a sprawling purple weatherboard, when one morning,

tragedy strikes.

In the devastating aftermath, the questions fly. What really happened? And who’s to blame?

Determined to protect his family, Finn finds himself under the police and media spotlight.

Guilty and enraged, Bridget spends nights hunting answers in the last place imaginable.

Jarrah - his innocence lost - faces a sudden and frightening adulthood where nothing is

certain.

Sixty Seconds is a haunting, redemptive story about forgiveness and hope.

‘A beautiful work. One of the most moving and artistically satisfying endings I’ve read in a

long while’ Susan Johnson, Courier Mail

‘An unflinching but tender exploration of what happens when the worst happens, this

achingly beautiful novel broke my heart. And then put it back together’ Wendy James,

author

‘Powerful and captivating - a novel you will not forget’ Eliza Henry-Jones, author.

What does this button do?

by Bruce Dickinson

The first print run of the UK hardback edition will have black sprayed edges. In order to

guarantee your copy, pre-order before the 19th October.

‘I was spotty, wore an anorak, had biro-engraved flared blue jeans with “purple” and

“Sabbath” written on the thighs, and rode an ear-splittingly uncool moped. Oh yes, and I

wanted to be a drummer…’

Bruce Dickinson – Iron Maiden’s legendary front man – is one of the world’s most iconic

singers and songwriters. But there are many strings to Bruce’s bow, of which larger-than-life

lead vocalist is just one. He is also an airline captain, aviation entrepreneur, motivational

speaker, beer brewer, novelist, radio presenter, film scriptwriter and an international fencer:

truly one of the most unique and interesting men in the world.

In What Does this Button Do? Bruce contemplates the rollercoaster of life. He recounts – in

his uniquely anarchic voice – the explosive exploits of his eccentric British childhood, the

meteoric rise of Maiden, summoning the powers of darkness, the philosophy of fencing,

brutishly beautiful Boeings and firmly dismissing cancer like an uninvited guest.

Bold, honest, intelligent and funny, this long-awaited memoir captures the life, heart and

mind of a true rock icon, and is guaranteed to inspire curious souls and hard-core fans

alike.

IT’S A BLAST!

THESE SCHOOL HOLIDAYS

Fun times for families at local leisure spot

The focus is very much on family

entertainment at the popular leisure outlet,

Ferrymead Golf, and with new activities just

launched in time for the school holidays there

is even more for families to enjoy.

A new moving target has been installed at

the driving range, which features pigs and

ducks for you to try and hit with the ball, plus

there are three clown heads that ‘catch’ balls

fired from four air cannons.

Another exciting new offer is the ‘Family

Affair’ package available on Wednesday and

Thursday evenings. For just $99, up to two

adults and three children can play unlimited

miniputt – indoor and outdoor, hit 150 balls

on the driving range, which includes club

hire, and enjoy a large WOW pizza and a

bowl of fries. Bookings are essential for this.

For the grown-ups Ferrymead Golf is

offering specials every Wednesday, Thursday

and Friday, from 5pm-8pm. These are: $11

jugs of Speights or Macs

Gold; $22 Bucket ‘n’

Bevvy, which includes 100

balls (excluding club hire),

plus a pint of Sepights

or Macs Gold, or a glass

of house wine; and $35

Bucket, Bevvy ‘n’ Burger,

which includes 100 balls

(excluding club hire), a pint

of Speights or Macs Gold or

a glass of house wine and a

Wow burger and fries.

For the ladies, Friday

night is Ladies’ Night. For

$25, ladies get a glass of bubbly or red or white

house wine, unlimited miniputt – indoor and

outdoor, and 50 balls on the driving range,

including club hire.

Another new development

at Ferrymead Golf is the

creation of the Ferrymead

Events Centre for functions in

the restaurant area. The facility

can cater for up to 170 people,

including 110 in the marquee,

so is ideal for all types of

celebration such as special

birthdays, anniversaries and

engagements.

It is also a great spot for

work Christmas functions,

and there are still some dates

available for the upcoming festive season.

With the stunning backdrop of the Port

Hills, plenty of parking, as well as food, drink

and activities, Ferrymead Golf is the perfect

location to enjoy time with family and friends

and celebrate those special occasions.

For bookings, phone 376 5350. Email

info@ferrymead.co.nz. Please note:

Bookings are essential for all deals, and

deals are not available if venue is booked

for a private function.

REAL ESTATE

Your own slice of heaven on Scarborough

50 Scarborough Road, Sumner

Auction: Thursday, 19 October 2017 Unless Sold Prior

2 bedrooms | 1 bathroom | 1 toilet | 1 living room | 1 office/study | 1 car-garage | Listing #FM5250

Every second of every day reveals the

ever changing wonder below this classic

Scarborough home. Set in a private pocket

on the mid slopes of Scarborough Hill, time

seems to slow as you are forced to appreciate

your surroundings and the broad expanse

beyond, with views spanning from Sumner

township and esplanade right across the city

to the mountains and across Pegasus Bay.

The house consists of two bedrooms

on the main level, with another bedroom

below, equipped with its own shower. The

main bedroom has incredible views out over

Sumner, with a sliding door opening out to the

huge balcony. Part of the balcony is covered,

enabling outdoor living and a connection to

the views even on a rainy day.

This connection to the outdoors and the

view is maintained in the incredible living

room with a 2m x 4m window that showcases

the movement and life beyond. A low

emission log burner provides all the warmth

and ambience you need, with another large

window connecting to the garden and

trees outside. The modern kitchen, which

also connects to the balcony and views is a

pleasure to be in, with ample storage and

bench space... making work feel more like

relaxation.

Below the house an established and very

thoughtfully planned garden sprawls on

numerous levels with interconnecting paths,

and secret spots to relax in. A private patio

area is ideal for entertaining or enjoying

the late afternoon sun above the Alps. The

Latest Christchurch news at www.star.kiwi

property has had all retaining walls and stone

walls replaced, including some paths and

shares a double garage with on-street drive

in access, as well as another large storage a

similar size below this, meaning that your

storage worries are more than covered.

Opportunities like this are few and

far between to grab your very own slice

of heaven, and with further potential to

reconfigure or extend, you’ll soon realise the

true possibilities.

Open Homes: Saturdays and Sundays

12:00pm - 12:45pm.

Auction Thursday 19 October 2:00pm at
