Fighting to save Redcliffs Park

Since 2016, Chris Doudney and others have been trying to save Redcliffs

Park. Relocating the school to the park has been a contentious subject,

polarising many in Redcliffs. On pages 4-5, we profile Mr Doudney and

report on the latest development in the park saga.

Long wait

over to

build on

Main Rd

waterfront

• By Sarla Donovan

A LONG-AWAITED outcome to

whether people can build in parts

of Redcliffs could have a flow-on

effect for others in the same

situation.

Section owner Wendy Gilchrist

said she was “greatly relieved”

that an independent hearing

panel on Thursday granted her

resource consent to build on a

waterfront site in Main Rd after a

year-long wait.

Following the decision, city

council acting head of resource

consents Andy Christofferson

wrote in a memorandum to

Mayor Lianne Dalziel, the panel’s

ruling would be “valuable in

shaping city council officers

thinking on this matter going

forward.”

It came a day after more

than 100 residents met with

Christchurch Coastal Residents’

United to hear about issues being

faced by coastal property owners

when trying to get resource and

building consents.

The meeting looked at how 1486

sites in a Restricted Unit Overlay

within the High Flood Hazard

Management Area are being

treated by city council planners.

Fire rages, homes at risk

Redcliffs couple world-beaters

In Brief

• By Sarla Donovan

REDCLIFFS COUPLE Ian

Huntsman and Wendy Riach

have won the worlds’s longest

canoe race, beating 20 other

competitors in the Yukon 1000.

Starting at Whitehorse, Canada,

on July 22 it took them six

days, 14hr and 55min to paddle

1600km (1000 miles) along the

Yukon River, finishing at Dalton

Highway Bridge in Alaska.

It’s the second time they’ve

taken out the race, finding victory

in 2014 when they clocked

up the second fastest-ever time

in the history of the race.

Ian is a 51-year-old engineer

who works for Hamilton Jet.

He learned to kayak at age 11

and is a member of the Down

River Kayak Club.

Wendy is 52 and a policewoman.

The pair sent texts to Ian’s

father Alan Huntsman after

the win, saying they were “very

tired” but in good condition.

They said the race was tough

this year with lower river levels,

strong winds and at one point

smoke from forest fires severely

affected visibility for several

hours.

Competitors paddle for 18

hours a day, resting between

11pm and 5am.

CHAMPIONS: Wendy Riach

and Ian Huntsman paddled

1600km down the Yukon River to

win the longest canoe race in the

world. ​

They carry all their food and

equipment with them in the

canoe, setting up camp beside

the river.

Alan said due to time differences

he would stay up late

to check with race organisers

that the pair had got through

the night without any attention

from bears.

“I’m excited, very proud and

very tired,” he told the Bay

Harbour News on Monday.

The pair are due to arrive back

in Christchurch on Friday.

VEHICLE DOWN BANK

Several occupants of a vehicle

which plunged 30m down a bank

about 1am on Sunday morning

were lucky to escape with just

bumps and bruises, Governors

Bay Volunteer Fire Brigade chief

fire officer Andrew Norris said.

The vehicle went off the road

on a sharp bend at Windy Point

between Rapaki and Governors

Bay, careered through bushes

and stopped upright without

overturning. The occupants were

checked by ambulance officers at

the scene.

NEIGHBOURHOOD WEEK

Funding applications for

individuals and groups wanting

to hold activities during

Neighbourhood Week opened

on Monday. The event runs from

October 27 to March 31 with the

aim of encouraging communities

to get to know each other. A small

subsidy is available from city

council community boards. Go to

ccc.govt.nz/GetTogether for more

information or to apply.

AWARD NOMINATIONS

The city council is calling for

nominations for the annual civic

awards. Nominations for the

2018 awards are open until 5pm,

August 17 and can be made at any

city council service centre.

Our People

Chris Doudney

Architect behind Redcliffs Park battle

Former architect Chris

Doudney helped

establish Friends of

Redcliffs Park in 2016.

The group has since

been fighting former

Minister of Education

Hekia Parata’s decision

to relocate Redcliffs

School to the park. Sarla

Donovan caught up with

the 77-year-old

Could you tell me a bit about

your early years? Where did

you grow up and go to school?

I was born in Hampton on

the western side of London, and

emigrated with my family on

the Rangitoto in 1950. I grew up

and spent most of my schooling

years in Christchurch. We lived

in Governors Bay and I went to

school there and then attended

Christ’s College. After secondary

school I spent 10 years in

Auckland, first at the School of

Architecture and then another

five years working in the city.

Where did you go from

there?

In 1968 I travelled with my

wife and son to England on a

boat called the Aurelia. It was

a 9000 tonne ship of the Italian

Cogedar Line, mainly used to

ship emigrants to Australia. The

return trip carried about 400

discontented Europeans going

back home plus us, so there was

plenty of room on board. We

stopped for a couple of days in

Tahiti, then on to the Panama

Canal, stopping briefly in Cristóbal

and omitting the planned

stop in Curacao. It took about

five weeks and we were starting

to run out of things like milk

by time we got to Southampton.

Our son Kit had his second

birthday on the ship. He had

one of those little plastic wheelie

things with handlebars, a tractor

or a train, and it was very popular

with the passengers. He’d

be doing figure eights across

the deck for hours as the ship

swayed back and fourth.

BATTLER: Chris Doudney has been the Friends of Redcliffs Park chairman for the past two

years.

PHOTO: MARTIN HUNTER

How would you describe your

family?

I had a standard family, two

younger brothers and a mum

and dad. Mum stayed at home

in the early years but later taught

German and Italian. Dad was

a sculptor and taught at Ilam

School of Fine Arts. Eric John

Doudney was his name. My

middle brother is an electrical

engineer and the youngest has

done a variety of jobs but currently

runs a gardening and

maintenance business. One

brother lives in Church Bay on a

property my parents bought as a

lifestyle farmlet in the 1970s.

What subjects interested you

at school?

I liked art and maths and

physics, but in those days,

they didn’t do physics beyond

the fifth form. I also enjoyed

languages and studied French

for four years, which was useful

for our summers in France. I

loved sailing and boating, but

unfortunately school didn’t have

it so I used to try to get out of

whichever sport they were doing

so I could go sailing. I was

always deeply impressed by the

architecture of Christ’s College

and have very warm memories

of the beautiful library building.

Did you enjoy living in

England?

We loved it, although we had

some hard times living over

there without much money. We

went to Europe most summers,

usually driving and camping,

heading south to sunshine and

beaches. France was good for

that. Another son was born in

London in 1970. We bought a

house in Putney and spent some

years upgrading it.

What brought you back to

New Zealand?

A severe depression in the

United Kingdom design and

construction world in 1977

prompted our return to New

Zealand in August 1978. For me,

it was to the position of assistant

chief architect at the Otago

Education Board. We had a lot

of schools being built at that

time, such as High St School in

1982. Numbers were dropping

in rural areas but not in the cities.

We loved Dunedin – we had

an inner city house in Cargill St

and were so close to everything.

It was a very old house built in

1860 and then added to right

through to the 1980s. It’s since

been bowled by a developer. Part

of me wishes we’d held onto it

but we had to sell.

Where did you meet your

wife?

I met Margaret in Auckland.

She’d been a student at the

School of Art in Christchurch

so I’d seen her around a bit.

Then we met up there and after

a few years we got married. She

painted and later taught art at

Auckland Girls’ Grammar before

we moved to London.

And what brought you

back to Christchurch and to

Redcliffs?

I retired from my position

as university architect at the

University of Otago, a fascinating

job which had kept me

interested for 25 years. My son

was here working and so we

bought our house in Redcliffs in

2008. At that stage, it was almost

derelict, but in a good position.

We moved in just a month before

the first quake in 2010. The

house survived but when 2011

came along it was quite badly

damaged, being clad in Oamaru

stone.

When was Friends of

Redcliffs Park formed?

In 2016, a month after the

Ministry of Education decision

to abandon the old school site.

It’s been quite a divisive issue

in the community – have there

been any personal attacks?

Not really. My wife got a

few phone calls while I was in

Europe earlier this year and we

have had eggs thrown at the

house but that was an isolated

incident.

What’s the toughest part of

the fight been?

That we haven’t succeeded.

It’s been very depressing and

tough on my wife to be out there

leading the charge. No one has

been told what the real reason

is. I think there’s someone in

the ministry who is arrogant

and biased and doesn’t want to

take the real evidence on board

and is in a position to sway the

minister.

When do you see yourself

putting this issue to rest and

disbanding the group?

We’ll probably not be able

to go any further than the

hearing of the (Education and

Workforce Select Committee)

next month. Hopefully this

will happen before the school is

demolished, though that is supposed

to happen in August too,

so we’ll have to see.

Petition delivered to Parliament

• By Sarla Donovan

A PETITION asking that

Redcliffs School return to its

former Main Rd site has been

delivered to Parliament.

Christchurch Central Labour

MP Duncan Webb presented the

200-signature petition on behalf

of Friends of Redcliffs Park last

week.

The petition has been referred

to the Education and Workforce

Select Committee to consider

when it meets in August.

It calls for urgent legislation

enabling the school

to reopen on the

former Main Rd

site and to spare it

from being demolished.

Friends of

Duncan

Webb

Redcliffs Park

spokesman Chris

Doudney said he

was hopeful the select committee

would consider the petition

“before they demolish the

school.”

Demolition work is expected

to commence in late August.

Mr Doudney said the committee

was able to bring findings

to Parliament to be debated and

potentially acted upon.

Port Hills Labour MP Ruth

Dyson was not asked to take the

petition because she had indicated

since 2016 that the school’s

H. C. Cairns – I write in

support of returning Redcliffs

School to its original site

on Main Rd. Redcliffs Park

is totally unsuitable for the

school to be built for the

many reasons already given

in previous correspondence

from other people – prone

to flooding, smaller than the

original site, threat of tsunamis,

objections from householders

adjacent to the park, traffic

problems etc. It would be much

simpler and cheaper to move

the existing buildings on the

shift to Redcliffs Park was a

“done deal”, said Mr Doudney.

He also said Port Hills National

list MP Nuk Korako was not

asked because he had been a

“strong proponent of the new

school,” and Port Hills Green

list MP Eugenie Sage wasn’t well

known to Friends of Redcliffs

Park.

It is nearly 20 years

I drove through

Redcliffs en route to

Sumner during our first trip to

New Zealand from the United

Kingdom. Do you know what

Ministry of Education head of

education infrastructure service

Kim Shannon said clearance

had stopped in the middle of last

week as a specialist team is on

site undertaking archaeological

investigations.

The area is of particular

archaeological interest, as it was

the site of some of the earliest

known occupation of the South

Island by Māori. Areas of interest

are being excavated by hand,

still sticks in our minds? Yes, the

Redcliffs School buildings. They

ranked among the

finest of Christchurch

buildings,

even before the

earthquake.

Over the years,

we have been

impressed by this

country’s regard

for its heritage. So

you can imagine

our shock when, as recent residents

of Sumner, we look on at

the destruction of this beautiful

Ms Shannon said. “This will

ensure any historic material is

recovered, catalogued and recorded

and that the construction

of the new school is not delayed.”

Information regarding the

inhabitation of the area and any

artefacts recovered will be published

by Heritage New Zealand

once it is complete.

Ms Shannon said the research

had been planned from the outset

of the project.

Readers respond to the ongoing saga in Redcliffs

asset. We ask ourselves “why?”

We have not met a single resident

who supports this bizarre

scheme. Who is responsible for

this decision? The motive? It

must be financial. Surely that is

the only possible answer? So who

stands to gain? Mmm.

We plead that those who have

made this decision search deep

into their souls and ask: “Is this

the right way, or will I forever

have this act of destruction on

my mind?” Heritage lost forever,

lost to the next generation, and

the next . . . oh, dear. Gone.

Bay Harbour News asked

local politicians what they

thought about the move to

Redcliffs Park and if they

supported the petition

•Labour MP for Port

Hills Ruth Dyson said the

decision to

build the new

school on the

Redcliffs Park

site “has been

made.” She

said the board

and school

community

supported

that decision because it

Ruth

Dyson

would get the school back

to Redcliffs “up to two

years earlier” than if the

matter was reconsidered.

“It is the legitimate right

of anyone to petition

Parliament and the petition

has now been referred

to a select committee for

its consideration. I look

forward to the consideration

and recommendations of

the select committee,” Ms

Dyson said.

•National list MP for Port

Hills Nuk Korako supported

the relocation of the school

away from the Main Rd

site because

“we couldn’t

guarantee

safety.” A report

commissioned

by the Ministry

of Education

indicated it

would never

be possible

to provide

an absolute guarantee

of safety against the

Nuk

Korako

risk of rockfall. However,

Mr Korako said he had

supported Barnett Park

rather than Redcliffs Park as

an alternative site, as it was

less at risk from flooding or

tsunami. He said he did not

support the petition.

•Green list MP for Port

Hills Eugenie Sage did not

respond to a request for

comment.

Long wait over to

build on waterfront

•From page 1

Most of the sites are in

Redcliffs, South Brighton

and Southshore.

CCRU says a restricted

discretionary activity

rule for properties

inside the RUO – a rule

recommended by the

Replacement District Plan

independent hearings panel

– was altered when the

plan was implemented last

year, and people wanting

to build or extend are now

getting into difficulty with

city council planners.

“The final city council

produced hearing

documents omitted the

key paragraph that made

the RUO effective,” CCRU

chairman Simon Watts

said at the meeting.

However, yesterday the

city council rebutted Mr

Watts’ claim.

Said city council head

of planning and strategic

transport David Griffiths:

“The Christchurch District

Plan contains the restricted

discretionary activity

rule . . . as decided by the

Independent Hearings

Panel in their Decision 53.”

However, Linwood-

Central-Heathcote

Community Board

member Darrell Latham is

backing the CCRU view on

the issue.

He said by omitting the

“activating clause” relating

to the RUO, the city

council had made building

within the Southshore

and Redcliffs HFHMA

prohibitive.

“They have not in good

faith followed the intent of

the independent hearings

panel recommendations

and this must be a cause

for serious concern,’’ Dr

Latham said.

Question marks remain

over whether owners will

be able to build within

the RUO – a subset of

more than 1400 properties

where the hazard is from

sea level rise, not river

breaches – after the hearing

panel said Mrs Gilchrist’s

consent was an exception

and “cannot in any way

create a planning precedent

for applications on sites

in other parts of the

Residential Unit Overlay.”

Last month Labour MPs

Ruth Dyson, Duncan

Webb and Poto Williams

met with members of

CCRU and Dr Latham to

discuss the problem and a

potential remedy.

Ms Dyson said after that

meeting they had agreed to

do further investigations

before making a decision

on “what intervention,

if any, is necessary or

appropriate.”

Dr Latham told

Bay Harbour News

yesterday he wanted

Greater Christchurch

Regeneration Minister

Megan Woods to use

her powers under the

Christchurch Regeneration

Act to fast track changes to

the city’s district plan.

Akaroa rates highly

PICTURESQUE Akaroa

has been named among

New Zealand and

Australia’s top-three cruise

destinations in the annual

TripAdvisor Cruise Critic

Cruisers’ Choice Awards.

It sees Akaroa voted

ahead of all other New

Zealand cruise destinations

for the 2017-2018 season,

taking out third place

in the passenger reviewrating

based awards.

“This award shows that

visitors are clearly enjoying

the wonderfully warm

Akaroa visitor experience

and that’s a big credit to

the Akaroa community,”

said ChristchurchNZ destination

manager Caroline

Blanchfield.

“Akaroa has stepped up

to take on the lion’s share

of Christchurch and Canterbury’s

cruise destination

since the Christchurch

earthquakes, which has

been great for the village,

in spite of the added strain

on the infrastructure

there,” she said.

Akaroa, Tauranga

and Wellington were

named in the top-five of

the Top Rated Australia

and New Zealand Cruise

Destinations category,

with Sydney taking first

place.

Ms Blanchfield said the

impact of cruise ships

visiting Canterbury ports

had positive benefits for the

regional economy.

“Close to 50 per cent of

cruise passengers return

to a cruise destination

they enjoyed for a longer

holiday,” she said.

The backstory of

T he A natomy of M elancholy • P art i: I dentity

by

Simon van der Sluijs

*Melancholy: a feeling of pensive sadness, typically with no obvious cause.

**Identity: the fact of being who or what a person or thing is.

I have always been fascinated by trying to visualise human nature, who are we, what

drives us, what moves us, and my personal experiences were more than enough to

explore. A trilogy to allow myself to create a deeper narrative to be more universal

and existential rather than being just about me. I chose ‘The Anatomy of Melancholy’

because I feel that it best represents my work and the person I am. Part 1 is about

identity because to me it is the source of melancholy and so that is where the trilogy

needs to start. It shows drawings, paintings and small objects.

Generally the work on show deals with the desire to belong, to be allowed to be, through

confirmation of our fellow beings, and of getting damaged in the process.

There are two separate sections within the exhibition: ‘Little Sorrows’ and ‘Intimacies’

Little Sorrows

Our pets contribute to our identity. Inevitably having a pet also means that the day will

come we have to farewell it ‘Little Sorrows’ is what can happen when we can’t let go

and try to either recreate the friend we were so fond of or make an effort in taxidermy

to preserve through small paintings of mice, hamsters and goldfish and faux taxidermy

objects, mainly in ‘museum boxes’ and under bell jars.

Intimacies (Explicit content)

Sexual identity is the way we think of ourselves in relationship to whom we are

romantically or sexually attracted to. Growing up in a Catholic environment sexuality was

definitely not a topic of discussion or acknowledged as an important part of being. This is

the reason I have made these paintings so small, they fit in a locket and can therefore be

‘locked away’ only to be enjoyed in a private atmosphere.

Part 1 Identity August 2018, Part 2 Dissectum April 2019 and Part 3 Lost and Found

November 2019. All shown at Little River Gallery.

MT PLEASANT costume

designer Tina Hutchison-

Thomas is a finalist in this year’s

World of Wearable Art Awards.

It’s the second time she’s

entered the long-running event

after her initial foray last year

– a futuristic ball gown called

Geogami – catapulted into the

avant-garde section finals.

The former Court Theatre designer,

who now works freelance

from her home workshop, admits

WOW is highly contagious.

“Once you see your costume

up on stage brought to life, you

want to keep going and designing

more. It’s a big buzz.”

While she can’t give many

details about this year’s costume,

Ms Hutchison-Thomas says it’s

based around hand dyed fabric

– and she hints the fabric “isn’t

something you would usually

hand dye.”

It also has 3000 rhinestones

bedazzling it, each individually

glued on.

The idea for the costume came

from the natural world.

“I love it when you go close up

on a moth or butterfly; the scales

are incredible. So that was my

inspiration.”

She confesses the design has

been time-consuming to make,

with around 150 hours spent pattern

making, sewing and decorating

on top of her paid work.

“There have been some long

work days.”

Coming from a more traditional

sewing background, she

had never thought of herself as

creative enough to enter WOW.

“I’ve always been a very traditional

costumier and I never

thought I was arty enough but

there was a window of opportunity

last year and I just thought

why not, I’ll give it a go . . . and

because it’s so highly addictive, I

wanted to do it again.

“I took all my family last year

as a surprise: my husband and

three kids, my parents and my

aunt and my sister all came up.

They’re doing it again this year

and I’ve got my husband’s parents

to come too.”

Following many years as a

costume designer and technician

for the Court Theatre,

Ms Hutchison-Thomas left to

become a freelancer a couple of

years ago.

planting at Orton

Bradley Park

TREES FOR Canterbury will

plant more than 400 natives at

Orton Bradley Park on Sunday.

The annual planting day is

part of an ongoing community

re-vegetation and biodiversity

enhancement project at the park,

which was gifted to the New Zealand

public by Orton Bradley on

his death in 1943 “for the benefit

and enjoyment of the people.”

Thousands of plants, grown

by non-profit group Trees For

Canterbury from locally-sourced

seeds, have been added to the

established collection of mature

trees in the park over the past few

years.

Trees For Canterbury manager

Steve Bush said winter was the

best time for planting as there

was good moisture in the soil and

it gave seedlings the best possible

start. “It’s a great time for families

to get together and the children

are all part of it. Last year we had

three-year-olds out planting with

their families. They’ll come back

in years to come and be able to

say ‘we helped with this.’”

Orton Bradley Park is in

Charteris Bay at the southern end

of Lyttelton Harbour. Signs will

guide people to the planting areas

be out from 10am on Sunday.

AN EXHIBITION of

works by senior pupils from

Diamond Harbour School was

influenced by the life and art of

impressionist painter Margaret

Stoddart.

The pupils visited Stoddart

Cottage, birthplace of the wellknown

New Zealand impressionist

painter.

They learned about her

life and times, the Stoddart

family and about

impressionism.

Their mission was to create

an artwork that responded to

what they saw on their visit

or to use their imagination to

create art which was influenced

in some way by Ms Stoddart’s

work.

She spent her early childhood

in Diamond Harbour among

landscapes which later inspired

some of her best known paintings.

The resulting works from

these young artists will be

on show at Stoddart Cottage

Gallery throughout August.

The gallery is open 10am

to 4pm every Friday, Saturday

and Sunday, and public

holidays.

Works will be for sale and

handmade products by members

of a local art and craft cooperative

are also for sale at the

gallery.

Margaret Stoddart’s paintings

are held in public and private

collections throughout New

Zealand and abroad.

Over 40 are held at the

Christchurch Art Gallery Te

Puna o Waiwhetu and there

are also Stoddart works in the

collection of the Canterbury

300-game milestone for Murphy

• By Gordon Findlater

ALMOST 15 years after making

his debut for Ferrymead Bays’

first team at just 17, central

midfielder Chris Murphy

became the club’s first player to

reach 300 appearances.

Murphy, 31, was recognised for

the achievement following Bays’

1-1 draw with Nelson Suburbs on

Sunday.

“I wasn’t actually aware, I

knew I was close but it came as a

surprise,” said Murphy.

A number of Murphy’s old

teammates and coaches appeared

at Bays’ after-match

function to help him celebrate

the milestone.

“We were pretty frustrated

with the result so it was a happy

moment to go with a frustrated

one.”

Murphy has been a one club

man since moving to Sumner

with his family from Ireland at

14. At first he combined weekend

football for Shirley Boys’ High

School’s first XI with club duties.

“As a young kid you can get

away with two games in a day.

I don’t think the body would

get away with that now,” said

Murphy.

When he cracked the first

team Murphy spent two seasons

playing with his father Neil who

was a striker for Bays.

“I did the dirty work and

hoofed it up front and hoped

he’d finish it off. Often he

MILESTONE: One club man Chris Murphy (with ball) has now played 300 games for Bays’ first

team.

didn’t,” said Murphy.

Remaining at one club for

almost two decades is a rarity

these days, and Murphy recognises

that things could easily

have panned out differently if it

wasn’t for the attachment he has

felt towards the club.

“I used to get asked by various

clubs each year to leave, but it’s

just always been a bunch of my

mates that have been here . . .

When you’re winning it always

helps as well,” said Murphy.

“It may have been different

if we hadn’t been up there but

we’ve always been up and around

the top.”

Murphy says the highlights

of his Bays’ career are the four

Mainland Premier League titles

he has helped the team win.

He says that last year’s title

was made more rewarding by

overcoming old rivals Cashmere

Technical in a title race which

went to the final round.

“They’ve always been the

big rivals right from playing at

under-15 level, when they would

SPORTS

have been Woolston Technical,

right through until now. That

will never go away and obviously

we’ve got Coastal Spirit now

who are bringing some noise to

the party and doing quite well,

but the big one has always been

Tech.”

Murphy has also spent the

last 10 years coaching Bays’

youth teams. He’s now reached

a point in his career where Mika

Rabuka – a player he coached at

under-13 level – has joined him

in the first team. Murphy says

it won’t be long until he’s joined

by more players he has coached,

with Canterbury United youth

player Tyler Mounty pipped to be

the next.

As for how his own first team

plans, Murphy can’t see his days

at premier level finishing anytime

soon. Four hundred may be

on the cards.

“If I can stay injury-free I’d

like to think I could go for another

five years.”

Murphy’s next chance to add

another cap and begin his journey

to an even bigger milestone

comes next Saturday when Bays

travel to Cuthberts Green to take

on Coastal Spirit in the Southern

League.

REAL ESTATE

Addressed to impress

53 Marama Crescent, St Andrews Hill/Mt Pleasant

Auction: Thursday, 16 August 2018, unless sold prior

4 bedrooms | 2 bathrooms | 3 toilets | 2 living rooms | 1 dining room |

2 car-garage | 4 off-street parks | Listing #SM0048

Simply impressive both inside and out,

this pristine property presents like new, is

impeccably crafted and boasts spectacular

sweeping views over the water in an ideal

north-facing aspect.

Situated on the lower slopes of St Andrews

Hill where homes are tightly held and seldom

relinquished, this is your chance to own a

modern, stylish and wonderfully warm slice

of sophistication in a highly sought-after dress

circle location.

Superb sea views provide the backdrop to

everyday living on the top floor with the open

plan interconnecting living areas hosting a

well-proportioned dining space and lounge.

The contemporary kitchen with granite

benchtops strikes the perfect balance between

form and function with servery windows

allowing you to arrange outdoor meals with

ease.

Sliding stacking doors on each level promote

fantastic indoor/outdoor access to the extensive

Kwila decking and aggregate patios where you

can entertain al fresco, while admiring the

manicured gardens and flat lawns which are

superbly landscaped by Texture Plants.

An additional living area on the ground

floor offers excellent flexibility for families

and ensures you can cater to any occasion

while four bedrooms are serviced by two

bathrooms, the master with an ensuite, walk-in

wardrobe and outdoor access. The practicality

of bedrooms and bathrooms on both levels

widens the appeal with every room having

their own views.

Further notable features include a double

garage with over-height doors, ample offstreet

parking, under-deck storage, network

wiring throughout, outdoor speakers, security

cameras and secure boat or caravan parking.

Proximity to the waterfront and various

restaurants and amenities including in-zone Mt

Pleasant School (Decile 10) assures convenience

and underpins your investment, while you’ll

feel peacefully removed from the bustle, you’re

only a 15-minute drive from the central city.

Intimate sea views, an admired address and

ease of living are offered at this immaculate

and elegantly styled residence which is sure to

attract your attention with all that the Port Hills

has to offer right on your back door.

The home is warmed by a gas fire which is

complemented by under-tile heating, ducted

air conditioning but most likely only required

to cool this incredibly warm and special home.

Only available due to owners of 24 years

undergoing a total lifestyle change.

This has to be one of our best offerings to

date so don’t just take our word for it as this

will not last. This property is up for auction on

the 16th August but may be sold prior as our

owners have purchased. Immediate viewing is

recommended.

Open Homes – Wednesdays 5-6pm,

Saturdays and Sundays 2-3pm.

See you at the open homes or for a private

viewing or for more information contact
