50 selwyn district residents' guide 2017 Lincoln’s Flemington subdivision PROPERTY - A MAJOR INVESTMENT People settle in Selwyn for varying reasons with one being affordable land prices in towns such as Rolleston, Darfield and Kirwee where they can have more house and land for their budget. Green leafy towns like Lincoln and Prebbleton also draw people in, attracted by a village feel, cafes and boutique shopping, while still being close to work, retail, services and entertainment in the city. Many people want space to run a home-based business, store toys and for their children to play with lifestyle blocks and larger sections a draw card. Selwyn’s accessibility to the city means no traffic jams or slow commute, as is the case over the Waimakariri River. Trip times will be even quicker on the completion of the Southern motorway, which is currently under construction. Employment opportunities are also increasing. Rolleston’s Izone is filling up, Iport is expanding, more shops are underway at Rolleston Square, and new shopping centres AWAITING COPY Ad Number: LE11669 Artwork: LE11669 Size: 13.5x4 REAL ESTATE SPECIALISTS Real Estate Specialists Ltd Licenced REAA (2008) Description: ONE AGENCY SELWYN REAL ESTATE Account: property section Colour: F Filename: LE11669 If you are thinking of selling, STOP And call us to find out about our full service delivery and flexible fees! hav Wh lan att cas off tha Lar We Julz Sibbe (admin), Trevor McIvor, Mike Goatley, Nicola Curtis (admin), Chris Finnerty. 68 Rolleston Drive, Rolleston Ph. 0800 645 346

Kea (Nestor Notabilis) selwyn district residents' guide 2017 51 have opened at Darfield, Faringdon and West Melton. While larger blocks were once more popular, a range of land sizes is now sought. Smaller sections of 300-450sqm attract investors, people downsizing and first home buyers cashing in their KiwiSaver/Homestart grant. Sub-divisions offer a range of section sizes, many around 600-800sqm that are sizeably less in price than the equivalent in the city. Larger lots from 1,000 to 5,000sqm are also available, with West Melton’s Wilfield and Rolleston’s Coles Fields currently Stonebrook, Rolleston offering ‘lifestyle sections’ within a denser housing area. “While Selwyn is price driven, the mix of what it offers with business, public amenities and employment opportunity continues to drive the attraction for buyers to Selwyn, making it very popular,” says Mike Goatley from One Agency. Selwyn’s many advantages and closeness to Canterbury’s playground in the Southern Alps is continuing to draw people, many delighting in the opportunity to have a brand new home in a relaxed and pleasant environment.
