Heavy trucks using short cut

frustrate Avonhead residents

• By Anan Zaki

MORE RESIDENTS have had

enough of big trucks rumbling

past their front doors.

Avonhead people have now

joined the ever-growing queue of

people wanting the city council to

do something about the issue.

Residents say since the closure

of the Avonhead and Russley

Rd intersection in November

2015, heavy vehicles are taking

short cuts from Roydvale Ave,

Hawthornden Rd and Cutts Rd.

Hawthornden Rd resident Jon

Leadbeater said the increased

heavy vehicles made the area

unsafe.

“I’m worried about the safety of

the pedestrians and the children

in the area because it’s a narrow

road.”

It follows on from residents

in Fendalton and Wigram also

voicing opposition to heavy

vehicles going through residential

areas.

Lady Wigram Retirement Village

residents on Lodestar Ave

complained about heavy traffic

last year.

Fendalton residents last month

lost their bid to ban heavy vehicles

from the Glandovey and Idris Rd

intersection.

SAFETY CONCERNS: Hawthornden Rd resident Jon Leadbeater believes heavy vehicles are using the route as a short cut since

the closure of the Avonhead and Russley Rd intersection.

of properties all over Christchurch.

YOU HAVE to sympathise with residents

having to deal with big trucks rumbling

past their homes (see page 1).

Christchurch is growing at a quick

rate. That means more people, more

housing, more cars and more trucks. The roads are becoming

increasingly congested. We’re nothing like Auckland but

nevertheless our roading network is busy.

It’s no surprise increasing numbers of motorists are seeking

a quicker route to get to where they are going, and that often

means away from the main arterials which grind to walking

pace at times.

Once quiet residential streets and roads are now busy.

The answer is not an easy one, but there is one guarantee: Big

trucks will continue to roll through more neighbourhoods.

Call to slow traffic near school

• By Anan Zaki

VILLA MARIA College

principal Deborah Brosnahan

wants traffic to slow down before

a student gets killed.

Ms Brosnahan said Brodie St,

on the west side of the school is

dangerous in peak times.

This year there have been two

crashes at the intersection of

Yaldhurst Rd and Brodie St, she

said.

“Teachers are always on duty

to keep an eye on what’s happening,

but we’re very conscious of

the fear that a girl could be killed

out there.”

Both crashes were minor, she

said.

“One of them was a member of

staff trying to cross [the intersection]

in her car, and [she was

with] one of our special needs

students.

“Some of our girls had to step

into help an elderly woman who

had a crash on that corner,” Ms

Brosnahan said.

The current speed limit on

Brodie St is 50km/h.

“That [speed limit] seems silly

because most of us should be

sensible and slowing down.

“They do have some trafficcalming

measures like speed

bumps, but it is a narrow street

and some signage to slow traffic

would be good,” Ms Brosnahan

said.

The school also wanted parking

restrictions to be better

enforced on Brodie St. The street

has a 30min parking limit on

school days.

Ms Brosnahan said many of

the culprits were students but

said reducing the parked cars

would also improve safety.

The community board has

asked city council staff to look

into reducing the speed limit on

the street.

Said board chairman Mike

Mora: “We’ve already got staff

working on it, they are doing traffic

counts and research into the area.”

DANGER: Villa

Maria College

principal

Deborah

Brosnahan is

concerned

about the

speed of

Brodie St

traffic.

He said the board gave the city

council traffic department until

October to report back with

their findings.

“We are looking at reducing

the speed limit to 30km/h or

40km/h and whatever other

measures the traffic engineers

may recommend,” Mr Mora

said.

Mr Leadbeater said heavy vehicles

cutting through Avonhead

should use a “main arterial”

such as Withells Rd.

“Windows are vibrating on the

houses in the morning, it’s just

not suitable for heavy traffic.

“There should be a limit put

on the weight of vehicles travelling

on Hawthornden and the

bottom of Avonhead Rd and

Roydvale Ave,” Mr Leadbeater

said.

The Avonhead Community

Group asked the Fendalton-

Waimairi-Harewood Community

Board in April last year to

restrict heavy vehicle usage on

the streets.

The board asked council staff

to investigate whether vehicles

weighing nine tonnes or greater

could be banned from taking

the route which beginning at

Roydvale Ave.

City council transport operations

manager Steffan Thomas

said that Roydvale Ave is a

collector road, and intended to

carry more heavy traffic than

local residential streets.

And for Hawthornden Rd, Mr

Thomas said staff has not considered

if heavy vehicles should

be restricted at the present time.

There is also no traffic count

data on the road, he said.

The lack progress has frustrated

Mr Leadbeater.

“We were hoping that would

all get sorted out, but nothing

has happened.”

Waimairi Ward councillor

Raf Manji agreed with a heavy

vehicle restriction at Roydvale

Ave and Hawthornden Rd.

“It can be a frustrating for

elected members given we’re

taking feedback from the community,

but the way the traffic

operations work is they have to

do [traffic] counts and [they]

tend to determine what the

policy outcome is,” Cr Manji

said.

Firefighters move into new Wigram base

Fire rages, homes at risk

• By Anan Zaki

THE NEW $7.4 million fire

station in Wigram was opened

on Friday.

The station replaces the old

Sockburn station at the former

Wigram Air Force base and will

be home to 28 firefighters.

Fire and

Emergency

Area Commander

Dave

Stackhouse

said the new

station will be a

state of the art

Dave

Stackhouse

facility.

“[It] has been

designed to

meet the future

needs of the Christchurch community.

“The new station is equipped to

deal with major events, including

self-sufficient water storage, an

on-site power generator and grey

water holding tanks,” Mr Stackhouse

said.

The new station’s location

on the corner of Wilmers and

Springs Rd, will put the crew in

a strategic position to support

other stations in the city, he said.

There will also be a purposebuilt

chemical decontamination

facility.

“It means the crew coming

back from a fire or emergency

can decontaminate in a clean

zone,” Mr Stackhouse said.

The new station is part of Fire

and Emergency’s $50 million city

rebuild programme.

It will see six career, one composite

(career and volunteer) and

three volunteer stations built in a

redevelopment of the city’s entire

network of fire stations.

Other stations that have been

completed are Anzac Drive,

Spreydon and Woolston.

“Fire and Emergency has provided

the foundation of a great

emergency service capability, one

that will contribute to Christchurch’s

protection and resilience

for many years.

“This rebuild programme

represents a significant organisational

investment and has

provided a unique opportunity to

build a future-proofed network

of stations in Christchurch that

meets community needs and

addresses an ever-changing call

type and demand.”

Community groups share $278,000

• By Anan Zaki

THIRTY-THREE community

groups will be getting a share

of a $278,000 ratepayer-funded

grant.

The Halswell-Hornby-Riccarton

Community Board moved

to grant the money last week.

The highest beneficiary of the

fund was Hornby Presbyterian

Community Trust, which received

$38,000. The trust is in its

30th year of operation.

The money will come from the

board’s $570,000 Strengthening

Communities Fund.

The trust’s director Dr Blair

Stirling said the funding from

the community board is invaluable

and provides cover for staff

wages providing social services.

“We’re trying to provide for

psychological, sociological and

physical needs of people.”

The trust has 13 counsellors

and two social workers providing

services for 200 children

in the south-west of the city. In

total, the trust sees 2000 clients

a year.

The services also include providing

firewood to families in

need, Dr Stirling said.

“The [board’s] contribution is

part of quite a significant bit of

work that we do.”

It operates a mixed payment

system, he said.

“Where people can afford

the service, they pay. We use

the profit to fully subsidise the

service to the more vulnerable,”

Dr Stirling said.

The board has provided funding

to the group throughout the

past decade.

“The community board has

been a tremendous support for

the trust over the years,” Dr

Stirling said.

One-hundred and twenty-five

thousand dollars from the fund

was pre-allocated last year for

four multi-year community projects.

They were the Community

Development Network, Halswell

Community Project, Halswell

Menzshed and the Oak Development

Trust.

Board chairman Mike Mora

said it was normal to allocate

a six-figure sum to various

community groups early in the

financial year.

Mr Mora said the fund has a

strict criteria and can only be

used by non-profit community

organisations.

Nine sports clubs from the

city’s west also received a share

of the fund.

CAUGHT ON CAMERA: Two offenders who broke into the New Zealand Cars yard were caught

on a CCTV security camera. (Below) – Managers Ryan Lawton and Christopher Schwartz stand by

Car yard burglars caught

on camera in Sockburn

• By Anan Zaki

BURGLARS BROKE into a

Sockburn car yard and stole two

cars, using one to tow the other

away.

Two offenders cut through

a fence at New Zealand Cars

Canterbury on Waterloo Rd in

the early hours of Monday last

week.

A $23,000 red 2009 Mazda

MPS turbo, and a $9000 white

2007 Toyota Wish were stolen,

business manager Christopher

Schwartz said.

Both cars did not have

registration number plates.

The stolen Mazda MPS was

a “relatively rare” version with

only eight or nine in the city, he

said.

“They had to tow that one

out by using the other stolen

[Toyota Wish].” A set of number

plates from another car at the

dealership was also stolen. The

registration number GTW691

was taken from a 2008 Mazda

Atenza sedan.

“It’s a sad event really,” Mr

Schwartz said.

The break-in was captured on a

CCTV security camera. But

the offenders could not be

identified because of the quality

of the footage. Mr Schwartz

appealed for witnesses to come

forward.

Anyone with information

should phone the police on 363

7400.

EXTENDED ROAD barriers

are being installed in some

parts of the red zone to stop

illegal rubbish dumping and

boy racers from destroying the

vegetation.

They will also create tighter

security in the

area. In early

2016, barriers

were placed

across roads in

the red zone to

deter anti-social

Steffan

Thomas

behaviour and

illegal rubbish

dumping.

“The barriers

were designed to allow

pedestrians and cyclists access

to the area but to keep vehicles

out. Unfortunately, some

drivers continued to bypass

the barriers by mounting the

footpath and driving around

them,’’ said city council

transport operations manager

Steffan Thomas.

“Once past the barriers,

they’re using the area as

a dumping ground for

their rubbish, which is

unacceptable,” he said.

“We want to prevent that

from happening and have been

working on the issue with Land

Information New Zealand,” Mr

Thomas said.

LINZ manages red-zoned

land for the Crown but the city

council owns the roads and

footpaths.

“LINZ has been working

to lengthen the barriers

WESTERN NEWS

Fire rages, homes at risk

Red zone barriers

get bigger to deter

boy racers, vandals

in targeted areas so it no

longer possible for cars to get

around them by driving on

the footpath. They’re adding

additional bollards on the

footpath and berm areas and

stringing chains between them,

so that cars can’t get past but

cyclists and pedestrians can

still get through,’’ Mr Thomas

said.

“We hope this will bring an

end to the illegal dumping and

stop unauthorised vehicles

from accessing the area.’’

LINZ has been working

closely with landscaping

contractors and others

who need legitimate access

through a smart lock and

key system to open the

barriers.

“In the past weeks, our team

has also been working closely

with whitebaiters who want

to get access to their favourite

spots,” said Mr Bradley

“We have successfully

arranged access for over 60

individuals and the feedback

has been very positive,” he

said.

The whitebaiters register

their names with LINZ in

exchange for a special key to

open specific gates.

Mr Bradley said vandals

rammed some of the new gates

to get access to the streets.

Quizmasters battle at Cobham Intermediate

• By Anan Zaki

FENDALTON Open-Air

and St Martins schools took

out the Otago Daily Times

Extra! Canterbury quiz at

Cobham Intermediate on

Wednesday.

The winners of the year 5

and 6 quiz were Sam Atkinson,

11, Aran Cudmore, 10, and

Aaron Kwak, 10, with a score 90

out of 100.

Sam, who was part of the

victorious Fendalton team, said

it was the first time the trio had

won and it felt “pretty awesome”.

He was also proud of his teammates.

“It was probably Aaron’s

knowledge of everything that got

us the win,” Sam said.

The second and third-placed

teams finished neck and neck,

with Prebbleton School on 82

points and Avonhead School on

81 points.

Year 5 and 6 defending champions,

Medbury School, finished

sixth. The St Martins School trio

took out the year 7 and 8

quiz, and were elated after the

win. Dilkee Nanayokkara, Stella

Shields and Oliver Williams,

all 12, scored 94 points out of

100. Stella said her team was the

strongest in the world mapping

question. “We struggled on the

newspaper search and guess who

question,” Dilkee said.

It was the first time the three

pupils from St Martins had won

the competition.

Christchurch South

Intermediate finished second

on 88 points ahead of defending

champions Cobham Intermediate

which were

third on 83 points.

Your Local Views

Frustration over Russley parking

Avonhead

Community

Group

chairman

Somnath

Sarkar Bagchi

is critical

of the city

council’s ability to solve

ongoing parking problems

in Russley

WESTERN NEWS

THE CITY council in my

view has a simple community

involvement strategy: “Stall and

they’ll go away.”

The ratepayers of north-west

Christchurch are unfortunately

all too familiar with this strategy.

Seldom have city council

officers genuinely listened to

residents’ concerns and taken

meaningful steps to address

them.

One recent example comes to

mind – the parking problems

faced by residents of Fenhall St,

Pinehurst Cres and Bentley St.

These residents have had to

put up with cars parked in front

of their houses all day for six

years. This is a result of a bungled

city council decision to allow a

business park at the end of their

street without sufficient on-site

parking.

Residents got fed up with

council trying to “mitigate” with

NUISANCE: Car parking spaces are hard to come by on Fenhall

St near the Airport Business Park. PHOTO: MARTIN HUNTER

poorly enforced parking limits

and, in April last year, asked for

a “residents only” parking policy

for the area.

Sixteen months later, the city

council has not yet formed a view

on whether or not “residents

only” parking is an option.

City council officers are simply

not interested in responding

meaningfully to residents’

concerns. This is at odds with

the message that we get from our

elected representatives.

Representatives encourage us

to come up with initiatives and

approach them with the local

issues.

We do so and then the city

council does nothing about them.

Our councillors have ultimately

failed to break the officers’

hegemony over deciding what

happens where.

Readers respond to the planned demolition of the

Sockburn Service Centre not scheduled until 2022

Denis Lynn Gillision –

Why are we so slow at doing

these things?

Japan could have

rebuilt two large

cities by now. It’s

pathetic how slow

things move.

Adele Robyn

– Bulldoze it now.

It’s an eyesore.

Amanda Holden –

Bulldoze Antonio Hall as well.

Robyn Rodgers – By 2022

the price to demolish will have

doubled, what

are they waiting

for?

Amanda

Stewart –

Eyesore and needs

to go.

Craig Watson

– You probably

couldn’t call this leading by

example.

The Subs to play Rockquest final

CHRIST’S College band

The Subs has kept its

Smokefreerockquest dream

alive.

The band has been named

the people’s choice public vote

winner to book a spot in next

month’s national final.

The Subs won the regional

final in June but were not

selected for the national final

after submitting a video to

judges.

However, the five-piece,

pop-punk band rallied to gain

the support needed to win the

people’s choice vote and the

last remaining place in the top

10. The Subs will now play in

SCHOOLS

the final on September 22 at

the Dorothy Winstone Centre,

Auckland.

The band is made up of

year 12 students Jono Stewart,

vocals and rhythm guitar;

Zac Matson, bass; Humphrey

Bullen, lead guitar; Matias

Biraben-Clough, drums; and

Max Toth, keyboard and

synth.

Jono said the band is called

The Subs because it is made

up of “bench-warmers” from

Run77 – the winner of last

year’s regional Smokefreerockquest

final.

The Subs beat Run77 to

claim the regional final title

this year.

“When I heard second and

third place read out, my heart

sank – I thought Run77 would

win . . . I thought we hadn’t

made it,” Jono said.

But he did admit the rivalry

was a “bit of a joke” between

the bands – they’re actually

good friends.

Jono said The Subs entered

the Smokefreerockquest last

year but didn’t even make it

through the heats.

TOP 10: The Subs won the people’s choice award to book a spot in the

Smokefreerockquest final in Auckland on September 22.

Eight Hornby club

SPORTS

gymnasts on podium

at China tournament

HORNBY’S Olympia

Gymnastics Club has done

exceptionally well at a

high-quality tournament in

Beijing.

THe team competed in China

under the guidance of coach

Elena Mesheryakova. They

claimed eight podium finishes

against a top international field

from China, Russia, Malaysia,

Thailand, Philippines, Hong

Kong, South Korea and Ukraine.

Burnside High School student

Paris Chin was the standout

performer for the Olympia

team, and won the overall

junior category against many

experienced international

gymnasts.

“Paris is one of New

Zealand’s top gymnasts, and

the prize money will help her

to achieve her goals to become

a top international performer,”

Mesheryakova said.

The tournament was organised

and hosted by well known

Chinese gymnast Ling Zhong,

who represented his country at

the 2004 Olympics in Athens. It

also featured many other famous

Olympians as special guests and

judges.

The Olympia squad returned

with medals in several different

age group categories for most of

their routines.

Ava Gearry from Oaklands

School and Lilly Eastmure from

Halswell School dominated

their age groups, winning

the freehand, ball and rope

competitions.

Ava won the freehand

competition ahead of Lilly. But

Lilly claimed gold in the ball

category with Ava in fourth. The

Oaklands pupil then got another

gold in the rope competition.

St Andrew’s College year 3

pupil Nika Meyn claimed gold

for Olympia in the freehand

section and bronze with the

ball.

PERFORMANCE: Paris Chin won the overall junior category at

the Zhong Ling Cup in China.

PHOTO: OLYMPIA GYMNASTICS CLUB ​

Jocelyn Cai from Oaklands

School completed Olympia’s

success in the freehand by taking

out silver, as well as a runner-up

medal in the hoop routine.

Eleasha Chan, a year 6 pupil

from Aidanfield Christian

School, took bronze in the

freehand and finished fourth

with her ribbon, while year

7 pupil Mikayla Chin from

Avonhead School claimed two

fourth places in the freehand

and rope sections.

The competition was

the second in Asia for the

Olympia squad this year after a

tournament in Osaka, Japan.

Mesheryakova said the

importance of international

experience and exposure cannot

be underestimated.

“These tournaments are very

important for the girls progress

and development as well as

the valuable life and cultural

experiences they gain,” said

Mesheryakova, who used to

coach in Uzbekistan, her native

country.

“Rhythmic gymnastics is a

dynamic and compelling sport

for girls that challenges body

and mind.”

READY: Halswell boxer Megyn McLennan will main event

the Pacific Warriors 2 night at the Hagley Sports Centre on

September 15 against Kirwee’s Michaela Jenkins.

McLennan in

ring for first pro

boxing event

• By Jacob Page

HALSWELL’S Megyn

McLennan started boxing five

years ago purely to lose weight.

But in 11 days, she will be part

of the first professional women’s

bout to main event a card in

Christchurch.

The 39-year-old registered

nurse will be in the main event

at Strikeforce Boxing’s Pacific

Warriors 2 fundraising night at

the Hagley Sports Centre.

There will be at least six

corporate and amateur bouts on

the under card with McLennan

facing New Zealand Muay Thai

champion, Michaela Jenkins, in

a four-round contest to end the

night.

“If you’d told me I’d be boxing

professionally five years ago,

I would have laughed in your

face,” McLennan said.

“When I first started, the

coaches would laugh at me

because I was the person who

could barely run and couldn’t do

a push-up.” McLennan will enter

her 11th bout overall and second

professional outing after losing

to Nelson’s Dawn Chalmers in

Motueka earlier this year.

“I like to think I’m a busy

fighter but working with

(Strikeforce coach) Steve Brown

has really sharpened my game,”

McLennan said.

“He gives us a toolbox of skills

we can use in the ring and it’s up

to us to make the most of it.”

Kirwee-based Jenkins is

coming off winning her New

Zealand Muay Thai title in June

and was offered this bout almost

straight away.

“I’ve been in camps since

February so it seemed like a

good match-up to take,” said

Jenkins. She said she was

impressed with McLennan’s

effort in her loss to Chalmers.

“I thought she showed how

tough she was because Dawn

is a very credible fighter so I’m

looking forward to the challenge

of taking her on.”

New challenge for St Thomas footballers

WESTERN NEWS

• By Jacob Page

THE ST Thomas of Canterbury

College football team has

sounded a warning to their

rivals ahead of the nationals

in Christchurch this week

by claiming the Canterbury

secondary schools title 2-1 over

Burnside.

St Thomas’ finished fourth

at the nationals last year after

losing the Canterbury final to St

Andrew’s College on penalties

and the team is eager to push for

more success this week.

The nationals are being held at

Avonhead Park and the Christchurch

Football Centre.

St Andrew’s , Cashmere High

School, Lincoln High School,

Christchurch Boys’ High School

and Burnside will also take part

in the tournament.

St Thomas’ co-coach Jacob Allen

said he was thrilled how his

team bounced-back from conceding

a goal in the first two minutes

of the final, last Wednesday night

to claim victory.

“The boys didn’t want to have

the same feeling they had last

year so the fought hard to get

back into the game after the early

set-back.”

Allen said they would love to

repeat their fourth place at nationals

but accepted making the

quarter-finals would be a good

start.

“It’s tournament football so if

we can make the top eight and

then right our luck from there

that’d be a good start,” he said.

“We only lost four Year 13s

from last year so we still have a

good core of players so if we get

a bit of luck like we did last year

then we should go well.”

Hamilton Boys’ High School

are defending champions.

SPORTS

CELEBRATIONS: St Thomas’ claimed the Canterbury premier secondary school football title after

a 2-1 win over Burnside High School last Wednesday.

Hornby High School prevail in tight final

HORNBY HIGH School won the

Friday night open division one

basketball competition with a

57-47 win over Lincoln High

School.

The game was closer than the

10-point margin suggested, with

Lincoln staying within striking

distance for much of the first

three-quarters.

Hornby were able to hold

their nerve in the closing minutes

to end their campaign as champions.

Principal Robin Sutton said the

school was proud of their

achievement.

“The girl’s achievement was

an outstanding demonstration

of our school values of commitment,

achievement, resilience and

respect,” he said.

“We are proud of them all.

Device to prevent

snoring

Why put up with broken sleep, when

help is at hand with Snorex, an appliance

that prevents snoring, sleep apnoea, and

dry and raw throats.

Snorex is custom-fitted to your mouth

for comfort, and a follow up service is

provided.

Denise Lim has been involved with

Snores for 22 years

and has had a 98%

success rate with

people using the

appliance. Snoring

can be a health

hazard, causing

sleep apnoea, where

the person actually

stops breathing for

short periods.

It can cause

short-term memory

loss, tiredness and

contribute to high

blood pressure.

The Snorex

device does not feel

restrictive, is noninvasive

and carries

a money-back guarantee.

Many people are referred by ear, nose

and throat specialists, however, anyone

can phone for an appointment.

a powdered formula that could be made

78 vital ingredients that work together

in synergy optimising each other’s

contains a carefully balanced blend of

nutritionally rich greens, vegetables,

fruits, minerals, vitamins, essential

fatty acids, plant and herbal extracts,

superfoods, powerful antioxidants,

probiotics, essential amino acids, digestive

enzymes, fibre plus a uniquely alkalising

pea protein. It provides superior nutrition

deficient?

Minerals are the building blocks of

good health. Some minerals are only

needed in trace amounts where others

like magnesium are need in much larger

amounts and on a regular basis to prevent

deficiency and maintain optimum health.

A large number of us do not obtain

sufficient magnesium from our diet

and may notice some of the common

signs of deficiency. Some of the more

common symptoms that may be caused by

insufficient magnesium are: leg and muscle

cramps, twitches, muscle pain, muscle

fatigue and weakness, tremors of hands,

blurred vision, restlessness, poor sleep,

raised and/or unstable blood pressure,

poor circulation, irregular heartbeat,

shortness of breath, swallowing problems,

dizziness, headaches, anxiety, agitation,

irritability, seizures, poor concentration

and many more.

Although many young people now

show signs of magnesium deficiency

symptoms generally worsen as we age

due to our digestive system being less

efficient. Taking a magnesium supplement

of sufficient strength may be a sensible

option to top up our vital magnesium

levels. Not all magnesium supplements

however are well absorbed by everyone.

been approved by the Secretary for Education. Under this scheme, first priority

on enrolment places will be given to preference students for whom the school is

reasonably convenient. A description of how “reasonably convenient” is defined

is contained in the scheme. The enrolment scheme may be viewed at the school

office and on our school website: www.knightsstream.school.nz. The board has

determined that no out of zone places are available for enrolments next year.

REAL ESTATE

Immaculate by the park

116 McCormacks Bay Rd, Redcliffs

Auction: Thursday, 20 September 2018 Unless Sold Prior

4 bedrooms | 2 bathrooms | 3 toilets | 2 living rooms | 2 car-garage | 1 off-street park | Listing #SM0066

Overlooking the expanse of

McCormacks Bay Reserve and close to the

coastline, this four-bedroom home offers

a tantalising combination of location,

lifestyle, comfort and convenience.

Designed with function and flexibility

in mind the floor plan hosts an open

plan living area and an adjoining formal

lounge, with the latter not only offering an

alternative retreat, but it can also be opened

to create one expansive entertaining space.

However, if your inclination is to unwind

outdoors, then there is an opening off

the dining area which extends out to the

courtyard and garden.

Contributing further appeal and

convenience to this already attractive

home, buyers have the option to negotiate

and purchase the property fully furnished

which would allow you to quite literally

move in and enjoy.

Four double bedrooms include a master

with a walk-in wardrobe, ensuite and

French doors that extend out to your own

private balcony. One bedroom is presently

used as an office allowing you to work

from home.

Benefiting from a north-facing aspect

that attracts abundant sunlight, the

interior enjoys the warmth and comfort

that’s offered by a gas fire and a heat pump

which guarantees a comfortable climate

throughout the year.

Situated over the road from the reserve

and a short drive from the vast selection of

cafes, restaurants, bars and shops in both

Redcliffs and Ferrymead. This property

is zoned for Redcliffs School and has easy

access to the sea, coastal pathway and

cycle tracks. Walk along to the Saturdays

farmers market and enjoy the lifestyle on

offer here.

Our owner has purchased in Australia

and is serious about selling. Don’t be slow,

it’s got to go!
