LANDMARK: Governors Bay artist Russ Harris with a woodblock print

of the historic Governors Bay jetty. His work will be auctioned along

with 19 other artworks at the Governors Bay Hotel on Saturday. The

money raised will go towards restoring the 300m wooden jetty.

Jetty art going on the block

Construct art exhibition and

auction, which organisers hope

will garner much-needed funds

for the Governors Bay Jetty

Restoration Trust.

The artworks vary greatly in

style, size, colour and execution

– but are all linked by the common

motif of the jetty.

Mr Harris is one of only two

artists to portray the “ricketyrackety”

structure from the

endpoint looking back towards

the land.

“The structure is so interesting,

how it’s held together. Now

it’s unused the birds – terns,

oyster catchers, shags have

made it their own,” said Mr

Harris, who uses a letterpress

print process employing an

“arcane” machine at the Ferrymead

Heritage Park print

shop.

Artists have all worked individually

on their pieces but will

get to meet each other at Saturday’s

auction, something Mr

Harris was looking forward to.

Idea to

gift

Maori

reserve

sparks

debate

• By Sarla Donovan

GIFTING A former Maori

burial ground to local runanga

is an ill-considered act of

privatisation, says the Purau

Residents Association.

There have been ongoing discussions

about returning ownership

and management of Purau Maori

Reserve over the past century and

in December last year the local

hapu Ngati Wheke asked the city

council to explore the option.

A city council report supporting

the transfer was tabled at a Banks

Peninsula Community Board

meeting last week.

The report gave two options, one

of which would reclassify the land

from recreation reserve to historic

reserve.

The second and preferred option

was initiating a process to revoke

the reserve status, enabling the city

council to then consider “returning

the land to Te Hapu o Ngati

Wheke.”

I SENSE a bit of a blue coming over plans

to gift the Purau Maori Reserve to local

The Purau Residents Association doesn’t

plan (see page 1).

They have been in discussions with Rapaki Maori on behalf of

the local hapu Ngati Wheke since December.

The residents’ association says gifting the site to Rapaki would

be an act of privatisation.

Urumau bike tracks to stay or go?

Reserve plan

rejected again

• By Sarla Donovan

AN UPDATED development

plan for Lyttelton’s Urumau

Reserve has been rejected for

the second time.

The sticking point is whether

some mountain bike tracks in

the reserve should be removed

or retained.

The Banks Peninsula Community

Board first considered

the plan on April 16 but sought

clarification

on the legality

and compliance

of tracks

within the reserve

and their

environmental

impact, along

Jed

O’Donoghue

with traffic

and parking

issues.

A new report

presented to the board last

week said advice from the city

council’s legal team was that

tracks can develop over time

simply by people repeatedly using

a particular area.

But it appeared city council

staff had “worked with (reserve

management) committee members

on track alignment and the

like” in the years since the 2008

plan was approved, said the

report.

It concluded the Urumau

mountain bike tracks complied

with design guidelines and

standards, there was no increased

sedimentation run-off

caused by the tracks, and they

avoided native planting sites as

much as possible.

But the board again backed

away from adopting the plan

and has asked the committee

to meet with an independent

facilitator to decide whether to

close any tracks before the plan

is adopted.

The report noted that city

council ranger staff were “aware

of the, at times, fractious nature

of the committee.”

It said discussions and

decisions about the mountain

bike track network made at

committee meetings were

often “poorly formalised and

subsequently poorly recorded in

the minutes.”

Tracks can only be removed

UNDECIDED:

The future of

current and

proposed

mountain

bike tracks

in Urumau

Reserve is still

up in the air. ​

by the board as part of the

development plan process and

before final adoption.

Board member Jed

O’Donoghue said it was

important to get the plan right

because, once adopted, it would

have to go before the full city

council if any tracks needed to

be removed.

“We want to be very clear

about what is and isn’t going to

stay there and want everybody

to be comfortable with that.”

Mr O’Donoghue said no date

had been set for the meeting.

In Brief

BYLAW CHANGE SUPPORT

Almost three-quarters of Akaroa

residents think freedom camping

is causing significant problems and

80 per cent say the current ban

on non-self-contained freedom

camping is failing, an online

survey shows. The survey of 280

residents will form the basis of a

report on possible alterations to

the bylaw which will be considered

by the city council and consulted

on later this year.

$80K FOR CHOLMONDELEY

More than $80,000 was given to

support the work of Cholmondeley

Children’s Centre at its first annual

fundraising event. The Little Gems

Project’s ‘Denim, Diamonds and

Dancing’ evening held at Sixty6 on

Peterborough St raised the money

through ticket sales, sponsorship

and auction items. Chief executive

Arron Perriam said the funds

would be used to provide respite

care and education for children.”

MORE LOOS PLEASE

Modular toilets – not port-a-loos

– could be used to help manage

cruise ship arrivals in Akaroa

next season. The Banks Peninsula

Community Board has asked

city council staff to investigate a

range of options for dealing with

the added pressure thousands

of visitors put on the Akaroa’s

infrastructure.

Awards for community work, conservation

• By Sarla Donovan

Two Lyttelton women –

Margaret Jefferies and

Alison Ross – have been

recognised for their

contributions to community

and the environment in the

Queen’s Birthday honours

list

For services to the community,

the chairwoman of Project

Lyttelton, Ms Jefferies has

become a member of the New

Zealand Order of Merit.

Ms Jefferies is a mother of

five adult children (including

two sets of twins) and a former

secondary school teacher.

Her involvement as a

volunteer in the innovative grass

roots organisation spans 13

years.

She said it was wonderful to be

acknowledged both as a woman

and a volunteer, as women made

up a huge part of the voluntary

sector and their work often

remained invisible.

Project Lyttelton’s wealth of

initiatives have included various

festivals including the popular

Lyttelton Festival of Lights, waste

reduction, a community-grown

dinner, school and community

gardens, dual purpose welcome

and reusable shopping bags for

new residents, a voucher programme

for local businesses, and

worm farm bins for processing

kitchen waste.

In 2005 Ms Jefferies introduced

the Lyttelton Harbour

TimeBank, in which people in

the community can trade their

skills and time on an equal basis

– one hour’s gardening equals

one hour’s house painting.

The TimeBank now has

around 780 members and as of

2015 around 2000 hours of people’s

time was being exchanged

on average per month. The Lyt-

Margaret Jefferies

telton TimeBank has inspired the

establishment of 30 other time

banks around New Zealand.

She is a member of the

Leadership in Communities programme

and a board member of

Living Economies Educational

Trust.

Previously she has chaired

the Lyttelton community radio

station and helped set up the

Lyttelton Harbour Business Association.

Ms Jefferies set up three national

conferences called Spirit at

Work, which looked at spirituality

in the workplace.

She said she was particularly

proud of the way Project Lyttelton

operated.

“As a group we tend to look

at things from an “appreciative

inquiry” point of view which is

focusing on things that are going

well because then the energy

flows and people get excited and

the things that aren’t going so

well sort of slip in behind and

get in there too. It’s being valuesbased

and doing things in an

inclusive manner.”

Alison Ross

Ms Ross has been given

the Queen’s Service Medal for

services to conservation.

The self-described “quiet conservationist”

formed the Lyttelton

Environment Group in 1987

and has continued as secretary to

the present day.

Ms Ross was the foundation

secretary/manager of Otamahua/

Quail Island Ecological Restoration

Trust from 1997 until her

retirement in 2008.

During her tenure she raised

$500,000 and around 70,000 native

trees were planted.

She has been involved with

Heritage New Zealand, co-edited

a second edition of Otamahua-

Quail Island – a Link with the

Past, and secured a grant for a

restoration plan for the Scott/

Shackleton stables on Quail

Island.

Between 2003 and 2010 she

organised thrice annual conservation

volunteer exchanges with

students from the United States

and New Zealand.

From 2008 to 2010 she secured

funding to enable Lyttelton

Environment Group to sponsor

classes from low decile Christchurch

schools to participate in

planting days.

She has been involved with

local education at the Lyttelton

Kindergarten and Lyttelton

Main School, including as the

foundation secretary on the

board of trustees and leading the

move to have free swimming for

the three local schools.

Ms Ross was appointed to the

Banks Peninsula Wastewater

Working Party from 2003 to

2007 and has led submissions

on resource consent applications

and for several Environment

Court hearings.

Debate over Maori reserve gift idea

•From page 1

But association spokesman

Thomas Kulpe questioned

whether gifting the land was the

right step.

While it was understandable

the runanga would seek ownership,

he said, it was only because

the city council had “done nothing”

to recognise and protect the

area from inappropriate use such

as eating, drinking and playing

games.

He wanted the reserve fenced

off immediately – something

that “should have been done

years ago.”

“I want to see it reclassified as

an historic reserve and I want

to see proper recognition of our

common history by the city

council,” said Mr Kulpe.

The whole of the Purau area

had history which was not just

“private to Maori” but a common,

shared history, he argued.

“To rob ‘Peter’ (of a public reserve)

and hand it to Maori just

because Ngai Tahu has a lot of

political influence is not right,”

said Mr Kulpe.

He raised doubts about the veracity

of information supporting

the land transfer from the city

council to Rapaki Runanga – the

modern day representative of

Ngati Wheke.

Rapaki representative Yvette

Couch-Lewis did not reply to a

request for comment.

The supporting information

in the city council report was

“biased, incorrect and has omissions,”

Mr Kulpe said, questioning

the archeological evidence

cited. It was written by Te Hapu

o Ngati Wheke and is a summary

of historical information

that was included in a cultural

values report commissioned by

the city council last year at the

recommendation of Mahaanui

Kurataiao Ltd, an advisory

company set up to represent

the interests of six Ngai Tahu

Runanga.

The report was left on the table

while the board seeks clarification

of the issues raised by Mr

Kulpe.

Conquering Everest at

home raises $3720

• By Sarla Donovan

MT PLEASANT woman Heidi

Anderson has raised $3720 for

the Himalayan Trust.

The fitness instructor last

month walked and biked the

height of Mt Everest on the Port

Hills – 8848m over 31 days – to

raise money in support of the

trust’s work.

She also held a movie night

and raffle at the Hollywood

cinema in Sumner, which combined

raised $1700.

Over the course of the month,

Ms Anderson walked up Mt

Herbert in a time of 3hr 26min.

She said she nearly turned

back after walking into a field of

extremely vocal cows.

“I heard them 10min before

I saw them. It turned out they

were more frightened of me

with my walking pole. The challenge

got me through otherwise

I’d have been back after 45min,”

she said.

Ms Anderson also hiked

Purple Peak in Akaroa, ran up

plenty of stairs and did a lot of

cycling on the hills.

She was thankful for all those

who had supported her in completing

the challenge.

The Himalayan Trust was

founded by Sir Edmund and

Louise Hillary in the 1960s to

bring better educational and

Shellfish limit long-standing

• By Sarla Donovan

THE SHELLFISH catch limit

in the Avon-Heathcote Estuary

hasn’t changed since 1986.

Last week the Bay Harbour

News last week reported on

researcher Stephanie Hampson’s

finding that cockle numbers had

fallen dramatically between 2012

and 2017.

A Ministry of Primary Industries

spokesperson confirmed the

current limit has been in place

since the Fisheries (Amateur

Fishing) Regulations were set in

1986.

Ms Hampson said the combination

of poor nutrients in

the water and pressure from

collecting was responsible for the

serious decline in numbers, from

around 400 per sq m five years

ago to between 50 and 80 per sq

m in some areas.

She said the results indicated

the catch limit of 150 cockles per

person per day was too high and

needed to be reduced or even a

ban put in place.

An MPI spokesperson said

they would be interested in learning

more about the results of Ms

Hampson’s research once it had

been reviewed.

It was not currently aware of

any concerns being raised about

the estuary.

“In key areas where we are

CONCERNED: Stephanie

Hampson’s research into

aware of concerns regarding the

sustainability of cockle harvesting

we commission surveys to

estimate the health of cockle

beds. If there is cause for concern

a range of management tools are

available.”

Shellfish take limits varied

throughout the country and

reflected the “best available information

on what is sustainable,”

said the spokesperson.

In some areas the limit is a

result of local area management,

such as within mataitai fishery

reserves or taiapure – local

fisheries such as Rapaki and

Koukourorata mataitai on Banks

Peninsula.

The Lyttelton

Port Company’s

resource consent

for dredging has

been reduced from

35 to 25 years.

Negotiating concessions

earns Ngai Tahu praise

NGAI TAHU has been

praised for challenging the

Lyttelton Port Company’s

dredging consent, resulting

in concessions from LPC.

The company was

granted resource

consent last July to

deepen the shipping

channel, but Ngai

Tahu lodged an

appeal on environmental

and cultural

grounds.

A major concession

from the

mediation with Ngai

Tahu was the reduction

from a 35-year resource

consent to 25 years.

Linwood-Central-Heathcote

Community Board

member Darrell Latham,

who was critical of the city

Darrell

Latham

council for not being more

active in the lead up to the

consent being granted last

year, said Ngai Tahu had

“led the way” in ensuring

the marine

environment was

protected.

“Ngai Tahu

deserves

congratulations

for this, as does

LPC in conceding

to improved

conditions to

protect the marine

environment.

Both have shown that they

care for the environment

and for the port and

Canterbury’s continued

economic development,”

said Dr Latham.

Stricter environmental

controls announced last

week include requiring

the company to provide

a programme of its proposed

dredging a month

in advance to Ngai Tahu,

and to liaise with groups

including mussel farm

owners Ngai Tahu and

Sanford, and Environment

Canterbury.

Lyttelton Port must also

provide them with records

of the timing, quantities

and location of dumped

sediment.

Dumping dredge spoil

from a previous consent at

Awaroa/Godley Head, Livingstone

Bay, Breeze Bay

and Mechanics Bay, considered

important breeding

grounds for kaimoana, will

no longer be allowed.

More pest traps for Sumner

• By Sarla Donovan

RODENTS beware.

Predator Free Sumner has

topped up its supply of traps.

Co-ordinator Gabe Ross said

an increase in the organisation’s

Kiwibank grant means it could

offer another 140 subsidised

traps, taking the total to 365.

May was a record month for

the group, with 101 recorded pest

kills.

“We are at peak

‘rattyness’,” said

Mr Ross.

“Our cumulative

total (since October)

is 345 animals,

of which 165 are

rats, two weasels,

46 hedgehogs, 52

possums and 72 mice, with the

balance being rodents that were

scavenged before they could be

identified.”

He is hoping the removal of

the rats in particular will boost

native bird numbers over the

next nesting season and is keen

to get as many people as possible

participating in the national

Landcare Garden Bird Survey

between June 30 and July 8.

“This will be a useful way to

get some measurement of how

bird numbers and species change

as the trapping continues.

“We will be arranging a trap

wooden box.

pick-up day every couple of

weeks until our supply is gone,

so keep an eye on our Facebook

page and community notice

boards for updates,” said Mr

Ross.

A Victor rat trap in a timber

box costs $8, a Trapinator possum

trap is $20 and a Doc200 rat

and mustelid trap is $35.

People are asked to set traps

in their gardens only – not on

lifestyle blocks or reserves.

They need to be kept baited,

ideally checked once a week, and

any catches reported to Predator

Free Sumner with the date, animal,

trap-type and bait.

In another welcome development,

Cranford St PlaceMakers

has donated materials for building

an extra 150 rat trap boxes.

A working bee will be

arranged in the next few weeks

where residents can assemble a

box, receive a Kiwibank supplied

rat trap, and take the set away for

free.

AKAROA Museum’s suite

of three new long-term

exhibitions, developed and

installed after the repair and

strengthening of its buildings,

have received national

recognition.

Nominated in the category of

‘exhibition excellence – social

history’ in the Service IQ New

Zealand Museum Awards, the

museum made it to the finals in

this category.

The judges said the redeveloped

exhibitions looked “like

a ‘jewel’ of an experience” and

were a great exemplar for small

museums.

“Perhaps the success of this

redevelopment is in its use of

old approaches – object-led,

good design, interesting stories

well executed.”

Ngā Taenga mai Arrivals,

Land and Sea and Tales of

Banks Peninsula are the three

exhibitions.

Museum director Lynda

Wallace praised collections

manager Daniel Smith, who

curated them.

“He set out to showcase our

great collections and let the

objects shine so we are thrilled

that the judges picked up on

that,” said Ms Wallace.

What is in a name?

Heathcote

Ward city

councillor

Sara

Templeton

explains

the process

behind road

naming in

the city

THERE’S BEEN some

discussion within these pages

recently about the naming of a

new street in Heathcote Valley –

Kairuri Lane.

It’s clear from comments

that the city council’s processes

around road naming are opaque,

so I thought I’d have a go at

explaining them, using this one

as an example.

Under the city council’s

roads and right-of-way naming

policy, the names considered

for new roads must be requested

by the developer, who puts

forward three for consideration.

The community board is then

able to either approve a name or

not.

In this instance the developer

had requested that Reynard Lane

be approved by the Linwood-

Central-Heathcote Community

Board, but the board had concerns

that it wasn’t in keeping

with other historic street names

in the area, so asked the developer

to present some other options.

He did and came back at the

following meeting with Reynard

Lane as his preferred option,

then Abney Lane (named for

an old surveying tool) and also

Kairuri Lane (the Maori word for

surveyor).

He had consulted with Mahaanui

Kurataiao Ltd, a resource

and environmental advisory

group, which agreed that the

name ‘Kairuri’ was culturally

appropriate.

The word kai in this case is

used as a prefix to verbs and

stipulates the person of the action.

For example mahi (work)

is kaimahi/worker and kōrero

(speak) is kaikōrero/speaker.

CONCERNS:

The choice

of name –

Kairuri Lane

– for a new

subdivision

on Bridle

Path Rd has

attracted

controversy.

Rūri is a translated English word

for ruler, so Kairūri means surveyor.

The community board has

previously had concerns about

the road naming policy and last

year asked the city council to

review the policy to enable better

outcomes.

We were concerned that

there is currently little resident

involvement and also that it was

difficult to encourage developers

to present Te Reo names as options.

The city has very few

Maori street names, even with

the long historic connection to

the area and so this was one of

the issues that we took into consideration

when we approved the

developers’ third option.

I am hopeful that the review of

the policy will mean both greater

community involvement in road

naming processes, especially

in existing communities, and a

greater recognition of tangata

whenua. Ngā mihi

We said:

Estuary shellfish are

under threat

You said:

Bernie McLean –

Having observed the

unmitigated looting of

shellfish over the previous

several decades I

think that a total ban is

perhaps now necessary

and easier to police.

Diane McCarthy – Cockles

are eaten by estuary birdlife.

Humans need to respect this.

Biodiversity means keeping

all lifeforms viable. I support a

total ban on collecting cockles,

enforced by volunteers until

viable numbers of shellfish are

re-established in the Avon-

Heathcote estuary. Monitoring

this by further research is

critical. Then a quota per adult

gatherer can be reset that

maintains a balance. However,

thought needs to be given as to

why some groups of new Kiwi

settlers are turning to gathering

this free food source. Perhaps

they are poor? Having better

living wages to buy seafood

commercially could sustain

them and our beloved estuary.

Christopher Gresson – In

my opinion there should be a

complete ban on gathering shellfish/cockles

in the estuary. The

ecological health/birdlife of the

than people’s right to gather

shellfish from this estuary. On

another, but related matter, I

have observed people gathering

shellfish from the rocks around

the lifeboat breakwater

at Scarborough, and

from the rocks which

once formed the walls

of the old Bell’s Baths

– they take everything

which is alive – topshells,

cat’s eyes, limpets

and chitons. These

rocks are now almost completely

devoid of life.

Ron Williams – Total ban

able to withstand the “human

thievery.”

We said:

You said:

Dick Wilkins – As well

as being an increasingly

derelict eyesore and creating

visibility issues for traffic,

many pedestrians now have to

negotiate the fenced area around

the hotel if they are to use the

new crossing to the new bus

stop. Being caught in that fenced

area in an earthquake could be

fatal.

Sumner runners make

mark on Chch Marathon

SUMNER RUNNING Club

members earned a number

of Canterbury marathon

championship titles at the

Christchurch Marathon on

Sunday.

Cool and wet weather made

for challenging race conditions,

with some wondering if they

had entered a cross-country

rather than a road race.

In the women’s marathon,

Lisa Brignull and Jennie

Nicholson both came away with

personal best times.

Brignull ran a very strong and

smart race to overtake Letha

Whitham at the 35km mark to

claim third. In doing so she also

secured a personal best time of

3hr 4min and the Canterbury

marathon championship masters

women’s title. Nicholson

finished ninth in a personal best

time of 3hr 16min.

In the men’s marathon,

both Paul Timothy and Shaun

McWhirter performed strongly.

Timothy, who was recovering

from a recent injury, demonstrated

his maturity and

experience as a long-distance

runner to finish 14th overall in

a time of 2hr 47min and took

out the Canterbury marathon

championship open men’s and

masters title.

McWhirter, who was striking

distance from Timothy from

start to finish, came home in

18th place overall with a personal

best time of 2hr 50min.

In the half marathon, recently

crowned New Zealand

Marathon champion and

Rotorua Marathon winner Blair

McWhirter blazed through the

21.1km in 1hr 8min to finish

eighth overall. He then had

enough energy to jump on his

bike to cheer his brother Shaun

on in the later stages of the

marathon.

Simon Wooding, Laurence

Cooke and Rosie Hay also put

in strong performances in the

half marathon.

Wooding was 29th in the

open men’s in a time of 1hr

20min. Cooke beat the magic

90min time coming home in

1hr 29min, while Hay made a

Bayleys, Crusaders

tackle school bullying

A NEW children’s book has been

launched to tackle bullying head

on – and it tells the story of some

familiar Canterbury icons.

Bayleys Canterbury and the

BNZ Crusaders have teamed up

to launch Ace: A Horsey Tail of

Courage.

Aimed at school children aged

five to eight, it tells the story of

Ace, a young horse who is being

bullied by his peers. He dreams

of becoming one of the six

Crusaders Bayleys Horses which

ride out at the start of every home

game.

The story ends well for Ace

who achieves his dream, just as

his real-life character did.

Ace, a four-year-old

thoroughbred mare was in

training when the book was

being written. He made his

debut on the field on May 12 at

AMI Stadium when the BNZ

Crusaders beat the Waratahs

31-29.

Holly, another character in the

book who stands up for Ace, is

the horse that sets the pace for

the others and keeps them on

track, even though she’s third in

line.

Ace: A Horsey Tail of Courage

aims to encourage children to

speak-up and report incidents

of bullying whether they are

the victims or witnesses. It has

already been received well.

Last year the OECD

programme for international

student assessment produced a

report on students’ well-being.

Fifteen-year-old students in 51

countries were surveyed about

perceived bullying. New Zealand

students reported the secondhighest

rate of bullying in the

OECD.

Bayleys Canterbury general

manager Pete Whalan said he

was proud to be working

with the Crusaders to deliver

an important message to Kiwi

kids.

“The Crusaders sporting

prowess, combined with the

team’s reputation in the wider

community and the easilyapproachable

persona of the

Crusaders horses, will enable

the anti-bullying message to be

spread among the key audiences

throughout the country.”

The book has been written by

Friday Creative’s Katy Clook, and

illustrated by Kophie Hulsbosch.

There is also advice in it for

parents.

The books can be pre-ordered

on the BNZ Crusaders website,

and will be sold for $20 at the

Crusaders home games against

the Highlanders on July 6 and the

Blues on July 14.

Proceeds go to Bayleys’

principal charity, Make-A-Wish

New Zealand.

Jacqui Gibbs

Chamberlain

– Leap of Faith

In these works I challenge my doubts and beliefs

that anything is possible, that dreams really do come

true. There is also a plunge into the unknown subtly

represented in these paintings, a leap of faith into what

cannot be seen, what lies beneath, what hides around the

corner.

All we need to do is to take that risk, the first step, and

surrender to the unknown. Then the real adventure

begins.

My studio overlooks the sea and influences the way

I think and create. Its forever changing moods, one

moment calm and serene, the next rough and unforgiving,

always with the freedom to do as it pleases, being

accountable to no one. The constant ebb and flow of the

tides with its contrasting colours and textures incites

both peacefulness and restlessness in my moods and

creativity. It is the joy and the fun that the ocean delivers

to us that I have tried to capture in these works.

A Leap of Faith is about taking that risk, not waiting or

you may be waiting all your life. In the end we may only

regret the chances we didn’t take, the relationships we

were afraid to have and the decisions we waited too long

to make. Go on, take the leap!

About Jacqui: an artist of figurative subjects with life

and energy, Jacqui lives and paints on an isolated farm

in Port Levy, Banks Peninsula with her husband Chris

and daughter Phoebe. While Jacqui’s subject matter

is invariably the human form, it is secondary to her

exploration of form, structure, movement, colour and

texture.

Come and meet Jacqui at the opening of her latest works:

Little River Gallery, 9th June at 11am. Leap of Faith runs

until 4th July.

Sun-drenched brick beauty

7 Teal Close, Brookhaven, Ferrymead

Price: $495,000

3 bedrooms | 2 bathrooms | 2 living rooms | 1 dining room | 2 car-garage | 2 off-street parks | Listing #FM5431

Be quick to view this well-priced,

permanent material home located in a quiet

cul-de-sac in Brookhaven subdivision.

Single level and low-maintenance, this

property will appeal to a myriad of buyers

from first home buyers to retirees or those

looking to add to their investment portfolio.

The tidy and comfortable home is warm

and sunny thanks to its northwest-facing

orientation with the added benefit of

double glazing and smart heating solutions

including solar heating.

Enjoy views of the nearby Port Hills from

the open-plan kitchen and dining room and

relax and entertain in the separate living

room. All three bedrooms are doubles, with

the master boasting sun and space, garden

access and the convenience of an ensuite and

walk-in wardrobe.

Ample storage throughout and internal

access garaging with plenty of off-street

parking for motorhomes and trailers are

further bonuses. Well-manicured gardens

have been carefully maintained by the

current owners along with established vege

plots and a small glasshouse.

The location is incredibly convenient,

close to Ferrymead shopping precinct

with great dining options and the popular

Tannery complex. Parks and reserves are

an easy stroll close by and a short drive will

take you to Christchurch’s seaside suburbs

and CBD.

Our owners have cherished their time in

their much-loved home but with retirement

home plans fixed in place, they need to see

this sold. This may well be the affordable

opportunity you’ve been waiting for -

contact me today to avoid disappointment.
