Huge support for

East’s coastal stand

• By Georgia O’Connor-Harding

and Matt Salmons

DAVID EAST has received

a flood of support over his

allegations the city’s District

Plan was tampered with, which

could see him asked to resign as

a city councillor.

He is facing a disciplinary

hearing and has been stood

down as chairman of the regulatory

performance committee

after calling for an independent

inquiry into an erased clause in

the District Plan.

Cr East alleged the omission

of a discretionary rule in the city

council’s High Flood Hazard

Management Area policy was

against the intentions of the

replacement district plan independent

hearing’s panel.

Without the discretionary

rule known as the enable clause

residents are finding it almost

impossible to build or extend

their properties within the

HFHMA.

It affects people in Southshore

and Redcliffs.

The city council fought the inclusion

of the clause during the

process of the plan’s ratification

by a hearings panel two years

ago.

get in touch

from the editor’s desk

I’M NOT surprised David East has got the

backing of the community over his stand

on the flooding and building issues which

will affect many in Southshore and across

the estuary in Redcliffs.

But it looks like he will get slam-dunked

by Mayor Lianne Dalziel and city council bosses.

Time will tell if he will be asked to resign as a city councillor.

Coastal-Burwood Community Board chairwoman Kim Money

and her deputy Tim Sintes are also facing council disciplinary

action too.

Councillors are supposed to follow certain rules when they

speak publicly. But Dalziel and the city council have been very

heavy-handed.

East’s public stand is what people wanting to build on their

empty sections want to hear.

They need a voice.

Online arguments tie up police

• By Sophie Cornish

PEOPLE ARE increasingly

going to the police to report

arguments they are having

online.

But New Brighton Sergeant

Jim Currie says the police is not

often the best

place to go.

He said

there had been

an increase

in complaints

involving

in the last

month.

Jim Currie

He is calling for people to deal

with the matters differently.

“The best way they can deal

with it is to block the person and

keep themselves safe by talking

to Netsafe,” said Sergeant Currie.

Netsafe is a New Zealand independent

and not-for-profit

online safety organisation.

“It’s about people who were

once friends having fallouts, and

then people are saying things on

social media about each other

and they don’t like what they are

saying, so they are complaining

to police about it.”

“A lot of these aren’t really

police matters and they are tying

up resources which could

be used elsewhere . . . basically

we are telling people we don’t

always have time to investigate

these things and that people

need to look after themselves on

social media,” he said.

People are reporting the

incidences through the crime

reporting line, phoning the police

or coming into the station.

Sergeant Currie said while

there are some “grey areas”

around police jurisdiction and

the internet, if there are threats

to cause serious harm or the

belief the person is capable of

causing harm, then they would

be involved.

However, if a disagreement

happens, police have little power

to get involved, due to it being

East says he will apologise if he is wrong

•From page 1

“Sir Tipene O’Regan is one I

am happy to acknowledge”.

Ms Money said: “We need

to speak up and make a stand

for our community and that is

exactly what we have done.”

Since Cr East’s stand, there

has been calls for him to run for

mayor at next year’s local body

elections.

But while many in the

community are supporting

Burwood Ward councillor

and Coastal-Burwood

Community Board member

Glenn Livingstone and other

city councillors won’t commit to

supporting Cr East.

“Personally myself, I wouldn’t

be making allegations like this,”

said Cr Livingstone.

“The facts need to be established

first”.

Cr East said he would be “more

than happy to unreservedly

apologise” if it transpired he was

wrong and had been “led up the

garden path.”

Cr East’s fellow city councillors

have closed ranks when asked

whether they support his public

stand.

Cr East also said he has “no axe

to grind” with the lack of support

from his fellow city councillors.

He had expected it given they

have been told not to comment to

BIG PROBLEM: Southshore residents are in a quandary over whether they can build on their

empty sections.

media because Ms Dalziel is handling

potential code of conduct

proceedings.

Christchurch East MP Poto

Williams would also not comment

on whether she supported

Cr East’s accusations.

“But I do recognise there are

some issues of fairness that the

residents have raised in terms of

their ability to rebuild or build

on their property,” Ms Williams

said.

Approaches have been made to

various MP offices to make them

aware of the issue and how they

might resolve it.

“There are things happening in

the background but I don’t want

to prejudice any ongoing discussion,”

she said.

Christchurch East National list

MP Jo Hayes said Cr East had

“unhitched a can of worms.”

“He has opened it right up,

and an independent inquiry

will prove if what he is saying is

right,” Ms Hayes said.

Southshore Residents’ Association

chairwoman Lynda

Burdekin said it is 100 per cent

behind Cr East and it supports

and applauds him for his stand.

Southshore resident Cherylan

Davies, who has been trying to

build a house after purchasing a section

on Rocking Horse Rd, agrees.

After investing $22,680

on consultants, building

consent fees and a geotechnical

report she and her husband were

informed they needed a resource

consent to proceed.

Mrs Davies said it will cost

$5850 to lodge an application for

a resource consent. A consultant

planner said it was likely the resource

consent would be refused

by the city council and an appeal

to the Environment Court would

be necessary.

Cr East has done what his

constituents have asked him to

do, she said.

South Brighton Residents’

Association secretary Séamus

O’Cromtha said it is up to Cr

East to substantiate what he alleges.

“I think the best way to cut

through all this fog and confusion

is to have a full independent

inquiry into city council practices

over the last few years,” he said.

Christchurch Coastal Residents’

United deputy chairman

Warwick Schaefer said the group

was “absolutely backing David.”

The city council should focus

on issues around the HFHMA

policy rather than Cr East’s

conduct.

He said it felt like “they’re

shooting the messenger.”

No timeline to re-install fronds

• By Georgia O’Connor-

Harding

THE Anzac Drive bridge’s iconic

fronds could be a long way off

from being re installed.

The Coastal- Burwood Community

Board is pushing for the

fronds to be placed back on the

bridge after they

were taken down

in 2010 for safety

reasons.

But city

council operations

manager

Steffan Thomas

said there is no

Kim Money

funding to reinstate the fronds

and therefore no time frame is

available.

Board chairwoman Kim

Money said the best outcome

would be for the fronds to be

re-installed.

“We really want to see them

back up because they are beautiful

pieces of art. It is a shame to

have them sitting somewhere

waiting on a 10 to 20-year plan

for the bridge to be replaced,” she

said.

Mr Thomas said the fronds

were originally put in place for

art and beautification and to

reflect the plant life in the area.

The fronds were first installed

in about 2000 and taken down

in 2008 due to safety concerns as

the streetlight steel was beginning

to show metal fatigue at the

mounting points.

After further engineering design,

the fronds were reinstated

in July 2010.

But they were removed following

September 2010 earthquake

by the New Zealand Transport

Agency so their condition could

be assessed.

Mr Thomas said if the fronds

are to be re-installed they will be

on their own supports and not

attached to the bridge structure.

However, NZTA said the

fronds may have to be temporarily

removed and stored when the

bridge is replaced.

A NZTA spokeswoman said

BEAUTIFICATION:

The Coastal-

Burwood

Community Board

has asked for the

fronds at the Anzac

Drive bridge to be

reinstalled. ​

there is no plan in the next three

years to replace the bridge.

They are currently being stored

in the city council’s contractors

Meeting the challenges wheelchair users face

• By Georgia O’Connor-Harding

EVERY WEEK at least three

New Zealanders are paralysed by

a spinal cord injury.

Last week, The Palms shopping

centre manager Emma Smith

found out how challenging it is

to be in a wheelchair.

To raise awareness for spinal

cord injuries, Mrs Smith spent

the day in a wheelchair while

running the shopping centre.

Getting used to a wheelchair

was “challenging.” Small things

like unpacking a bag or a laptop

or going to the bathroom were a

struggle, she said.

“I really appreciated how challenging

life can be for others and

I certainly won’t take for granted

the easy accessibility I have,” she

said.

The Palms teamed up with

the New Zealand Spinal Trust

as part of a week-long national

appeal to raise funds and awareness.

The NZST helps those affected

by spinal cord injury or impairment

live independent and

confident lives.

Mrs Smith said on average

three people suffering a spinal

cord injury was “horrifically

sad.”

“It is just really important we

as a centre understand the frustrations

and challenges and we

can continue to make improvements

for these families.

“All shopping centres should

be accessible, there is no excuse

not to,” she said.

The Palms is working on making

its cafes more accessible by

ensuring there is enough room

for people with wheelchairs to

access the area with ease.

At the shopping centre for the

exercise was NZST marketing

manager Mike Brown.

Six years ago his life changed

forever when he was struck by a

car while working in Tannum

Sands, Queensland.

He was skateboarding to a park

to meet his son and wife when a

car crossed the centre line, crashing

into him and breaking his

back.

The accident left Mr Brown

with a spinal cord injury and he

requires a wheelchair for mobility.

Last year, Mr Brown began

working for NZST following

the support he and his family

received after the accident.

It was a long road to recovery

for Mr Brown, but he said with

the right support from organisations

like the NZST, life is pretty

good.

“There are constant struggles,

accessibility is only one of those

struggles but I think as a society

we are certainly a lot more aware

and we are making more steps to

make it more inclusive,” he said.

On Saturday, the shopping

centre hosted a wheelchair

obstacle course where the public

participated with a gold coin

donation.

The nationwide appeal started

on Wednesday for World Spinal

Trees for Rawhiti Domain

• By Georgia O’Connor-Harding

THIRTY-FIVE trees will be

planted at Rawhiti Domain.

The city council is planning

to put them in along the Keyes

Rd entrance to the domain

after seven mature pine trees

were removed

earlier this

year because

of safety

concerns.

The Coastal-

Burwood

Community

Tim Baker

Board

approved

for 35 trees with five different

species to be planted at the

domain at its meeting last week.

The winter and spring flowering

cherries, walnut trees,

almond and totaras will be

planted this month.

The city council began public

consultation on the plans in

July after the community board

requested a landscape plan

be developed to improve the

domain.

Community board member

Tim Baker said the tree planting

is “brilliant news.” He is hoping

the community is happy with

the decision.

More than 70 residents submitted

on the plans.

Submitters had previously

raised concerns over the lack

of long-term planning in the

park.

The city council’s current

Long Term Plan 2018 /2028 plans

to allocate $10,000 to enhance

entrances in the Rawhiti Domain.

Tree stumps left behind when

the pine trees were removed

at the Keyes Rd entrance are

now being used as a trial nature

space.

Community group, The

Guardians of Rawhiti Domain,

is planning to transform woodland,

located off Keyes Rd, into a

“natural play space.”

Last month students from

Rawhiti School, Shirley Primary

School, South Brighton Playcentre

and residents gathered for

a native planting and unveiled

a sign for a temporary nature

playspace at the domain.

INNOVATIVE:

Children have

been using the

felled trees at

Rawhiti Domain

as a natural

play space.

The guardians will

maintain the remaining logs

and stumps for one year

while they consult with the

community on a more long-term

nature play area.

Fire rages, homes at risk

Board

moves to

protect

landmarks

• By Georgia O’Connor-Harding

INQUIRIES HAVE been made

into the heritage status of the

New Brighton Clock Tower and

War Memorial to ensure its

protection in the future.

The Coastal -Burwood Community

Board asked city council

staff to report back on the status

of both landmarks to assure it

would not be at risk of being

removed. Chairwoman Kim

Money said the area doesn’t have

a lot of heritage and it was important

to give the clock tower

and cenotaph a significant status

so they can’t be altered.

City council staff reported at

the board’s meeting last week

the clock tower, opened in 1935,

is listed as a heritage place in

the District Plan. While the war

memorial unveiled in 1925 is not

listed in the plan, it is considered

to be significant for its social history

and is a local landmark.

The city council is currently

investigating the possibility of

illuminating the clock tower.

said the project cost $6.05 million

including investigation,

design, construction, project

management, construction and

commissioning of the pump station,

suction tank, diesel tank,

two deep wells, access road and

drainage.

“The pump station was built

to replace Harewood pump station,

which had a shallow well,

and also to provide additional

supply capacity for growth in

the north-west area, particularly

in Highsted and Upper Styx,”

he said.

The city council stopped chlorinating

the Thompsons water

pump station in late August,

bringing the total number of

pump stations across the city

not being chlorinated to eight.

Including the Gardiners

pump Station, that number was

now nine.

INMATES ARE doing their bit

to keep newborn babies cosy this

month.

One hundred baby beanies

crocheted by prisoners have

been donated to newborns at

Christchurch Women’s Hospital.

The Christchurch Women’s

Prison’s knit project is growing

in popularity and currently

involves nine novice and

experienced knitters.

Poppy, who is part of the

prison group, is a very keen

knitter.

Over the past few months, she

has knitted 83 of the hats.

“I enjoy knitting and through

my knitting, I can do something

useful and give something

back to society while I am

incarcerated,” she said.

“I am approached by other

prisoners and teach them to knit

from basics to cables. I think it

is good for the younger women,

keeping them busy.”

Christchurch Women’s Prison

residential manager Tracy Tyro

said it is a constructive activity

for inmates.

“They appreciate being able

to do something positive with

their spare time. It can be a very

therapeutic activity. The knitting

group can be a good quiet space

for the women.”

“This is a project that really

appeals to the women, many

of whom have children and

grandchildren of their own. They

appreciate the difference a hat

can make to keeping little ones

warm. It offers the women an

opportunity to create something

pretty and practical for some

of our community’s most

vulnerable.”

She said in addition to helping

someone in the community, the

women have learnt other skills.

“They learn to work and be

in a group, to take instruction

and share their knowledge, they

can be creative and express

themselves in new ways. All of

these skills will be useful for

when they are released.”

Fire rages, homes at risk

Putting smiles on the faces of strangers

• By Ashleigh Monk

SMALL ACTS of kindness

“make the world a better place”

- at least, that’s what Feebee

Newlands believes.

Mrs Newlands is the founder

of Pay It Forward, a volunteer

organisation which has been

dedicated to carrying our

random acts of kindness for the

past five years.

On September 1, the 15th

New Zealand Random Acts of

Kindness Day, Mrs Newlands

and her team armed themselves

with flowers and lollies to give

out around the city.

“It was a lot of fun this year, we

ran into a lot of people who had

bad days and they said ‘thank

goodness you’ve come along and

cheered me up, I feel so happy

now’,” she said.

“There were a lot of emotions

this year, there have obviously

been some tough times for

people, so it’s just a matter

of bringing some cheer to

Christchurch.”

The group visited Ronald

McDonald House, the YMCA,

the Margaret Mahy Family

Playground, Christchurch

Charity Hospital, Ngaio Marsh

Retirement Village and others.

“It was a day of joy and

excitement, and just people

getting out of their comfort zone

. . . It’s so great to have some fun

with the kids, and the elderly

were just beside themselves

getting flowers and chocolates.”

This year’s theme was suicide

awareness, and Mrs Newlands

said the support from local

sponsors had been “incredible”.

“We had a focus on suicide

awareness which was tough

because two of the girls have lost

Forward team

their a mother, brother and son

to suicide,” she said.

“Everything gets donated,

it’s amazing. Nona [general

manager] from Moffat’s Flower

Company, as soon as she found

out it was for suicide awareness,

she just gave us bucket-loads of

flowers, it was incredible.”

Mrs Newlands started the Pay

It Forward group five years ago.

She said she wanted to inspire

others to perform random acts

of kindness not only just on

September 1, but all year round.

“It’s pretty powerful. It’s a great

message of remembering to reach

out, build a better community

and love and support one

another,” she said.

“It’s a really important day,

and we want to create that ripple

effect. There are people that do

random acts of kindness all the

time, but there are some that

don’t do it, and we want to get

people to start doing it all the

time.”

She said she wanted to expand

Pay It Forward to include people

from all over the country,

encouraging them to reach out to

their own communities.

“It’s all about linking people

from all over New Zealand up,”

she said.

“I’m trying to collect people

from all over New Zealand to

make the magic happen. We have

some guys in Nelson, we had

someone from Oamaru, some

from Hokitika, people from

Auckland.”

Woolston duo seek

national boxing titles

FUNDS: Queenspark Primary School pupils Ella and Caleb

McNicholl with Emily Box of the Cancer Society New Zealand.

For a good cause

BROTHER AND sister Ella and

Caleb McNicholl have done their

bit to raise funds for the Cancer

Society New Zealand.

The Queenspark Primary

School pupils raised $846 by selling

daffodils.

A cheque was presented to

Emily Box from the Cancer Society

at a school assembly last week.

Ms Box said the society would

like to pass on its sincere thanks

to Caleb, Ella and the school

community for their “amazing

support” for Daffodil Day.

With each donation they also

gave pupils the opportunity to

guess the number of jellybeans in

a jar.

Caleb said he wanted to do this

because he has family members

who have previously been affected

by cancer. He said he wanted

to help others so they don’t have

to go through the same suffering.

FAST FACTS

•It is estimated about

60 New Zealanders are

diagnosed with cancer daily.

•The most common

cancers are bowel cancer,

breast cancer, cervical

cancer, lung cancer,

prostate cancer, skin cancer,

including melanoma.

•Smoking is the leading

cause of preventable death

in New Zealand. About

5000 New Zealanders die

every year from smoking

related diseases.

A CHANCE at redemption and

a debut on the national stage are

the motivators for two Woolston

boxers.

Coach Holly Sullivan believes

she has a couple of dark horses in

Trevor Swainson and Hamuera

Tainui for the New Zealand

amateur championships at the

Hornby Workingmen’s Club next

month.

Swainson, 25, will compete in

the 91kg elite grade and Tainui,

14, will take part in the 63kg

cadet section.

Swainson will be competing in

his first nationals after an injured

rib ruled him out last year.

While Tainui will be looking

to go one better than his silver

medal last year at his final

opportunity in the cadet class.

“I don’t put guys in there if I

don’t think hey have a chance to

win,” Sullivan said.

“Trevor is someone who’s been

training with me for the past five

years and rediscovered his fire

for boxing after stepping away.

“He’s really excited to be

competing and just wants to

go up against the best in the

country.”

Tainui lost his gold medal bout

to Canterbury teammate Daniel

Meehan 12 months ago.

Meehan will move up to the

junior grade this year meaning

Tainui will have a chance at the

gold to add to his silver.

“He’s a very strong kid,”

Sullivan said. “If he lifts his

work-rate during rounds, I think

he can win for sure.

Both guys are capable on

their day of beating anyone

and I’m super stoked with their

preparation.”

Sullivan hoped they

would not be the only

Woolston boxers to

make the team with

several box-offs set

to determine any

additions to the team

in the coming days.

The event runs

from October 3

to 6.

College last year, but he’s spent

more time overseas with

New Zealand teams.

He had an impressive

world under-23 championships

in Poland where

his coxed four took

silver.

He is now in Bulgaria

with the New Zealand

elite team for the world

championships, which

got under way over the

weekend, in the reserve

pair with Joe Wright.

“It’s been an unbelievable 18

months,” he said.

“I need to set new goals because

I’ve achieved so many of

my two-to-five year ones.”

Taylor was part of the winning

Maadi Cup squad in 2017 which

not only brought back the top

prize for the first time in the college’s

history, but the Springbok

Shield as well.

Rowing is in Taylor’s blood,

the last time the school raised

SPORTS

the shield was when his father,

Andrew, was in the boat 34 years

ago. While Taylor is essentially

injury-cover in Bulgaria he said

he was still making the most of

the elite environment.

“It’s been very welcoming so

far,” he said.

“In training for the event, it’s

been great to watch how some of

the more experienced

guys go about their

business.’’

Taylor said he

had a bond with top

Kiwi single-sculler

and fellow former St

Andrew’s College rower

Robbie Manson.

“Robbie has been

super helpful,” he said.

Ben Taylor “He doesn’t give you a

lot of help but if you ask

for it, he’ll make the time.”

Taylor said his rapid rise had

allowed him to realistically

dream about being part of the

2020 Tokyo Olympics.

“I definitely wouldn’t have

dreamed about that 18 months

ago.” He said he wouldn’t mind

what boat he was put into.

“It doesn’t matter I’ve been

looking at everything as an

opportunity so far so I’ll try

to make the best out of any

situation.”

WAINONI’S TE Wero

Gymnastics Club has come a

long way in less than three years

and is starting the see the fruits

of its labour.

Less than three years ago, the

club started with 12 gymnasts

and a leased building.

Now the club now has six of

their seven senior gymnasts

named in the Canterbury team

which will head to the nationals

in Tauranga next month.

Sienna-Jean Hooft (step 5

team), Hazel Hall, Serena Lim,

Libby McDonald, and Momo

Wilson (step 6 team and Jun

McDonald have all been selected

to compete while Jozsi Ferencz

and Svetlana Sazonova will be

team coaches.

The New Zealand Gymnastics

Championships at ASB Arena in

Bay Park, Tauranga from October

3 to 6.

Te Wero chairwoman Melanie

Bloom said the selections were

due to the hard-work of her

coaches and volunteers.

“To have all seven of our team

originally selected and tot have

six competing is a credit to our

coaches and their techniques and

how hard our volunteers work

to keep the club growing,” Ms

Bloom said.

Head coach, Ferencz is a former

Romanian national coach.

Jozsi took the Romanian men’s

first time at the 1995 World

Championships and two apparatus

medals at the 1996 Olympic

Games in Atlanta.

Sazonova is a former Russian

junior team member.

“The club has become a real

melting pot of different nationalities

which has brought a lot of

new ideas and different coaching

techniques,” Bloom said.

The senior gymnasts range in

age between nine and 12 and put

in more than 20 hours a week to

prepare for the nationals where

they will compete in floor, bar,

beam and vault routines.

Plans for what the Square

could look like were released

by Regenerate Christchurch

pavilions, which would have

a “lattice-style” translucent

roof, which could host markets

and other events.

A CON man who tells his

intended victims he will harm

their families if they don’t pay up

may face a bigger problem than

the law – gangs.

Police have received 19 complaints

from Christchurch people

targeted by the sinister scam. It

involves phone

calls and texts to

victims who are

told the caller is

from the Mongrel

Mob, Highway 61

or Black Power.

Pay up or your

family members, Greg

including elderly Newbold

parents, will be

attacked, the caller says.

But it appears the con man is

not connected to the gangs, just

using their names to put fear into

the intended victims.

Canterbury University criminologist

Greg Newbold said yesterday

the gangs would be “filthy”.

“All I can say is he’s got a death

wish,” he said.

“They will be absolutely p***ed

off. Anybody who impersonates

a gang member is committing a

serious crime against the gang.”

Prof Newbold said the perpetrator

could get a “hiding” for that

alone.

Convicted killer involved

in high speed smash

Female

passenger

in lucky

escape

• By Barry Clarke and Emily

O’Connell

A CONVICTED killer is back

behind bars after a spectacular

crash while allegedly fleeing

police.

John Oliver Jamieson’s Subaru

Forester crashed through the

Rolleston dog park fence on

Saturday.

A spear-like fence post

smashed through the window

screen narrowly missing a

woman in the passenger seat.

Miraculously Jamieson and the

woman were unhurt.

He had earlier been recorded

driving at 180km/h on State

Highway 1.

A cut-down rifle was later

found by police in the vehicle.

Startled dog walkers said

Jamieson ran a short distance

from the vehicle before stopping

to see if the woman in the vehicle

was okay.

Police arrived soon after and

he was apprehended.

Jamieson was one of six men

found guilty of the manslaughter

of Timaru man Wayne Kerry

Bray in 2009. Jamieson received

a nine-year jail sentence. He was

on bail for other charges at the

time of the attack on Mr Bray.

Mr Bray, 26, died four days

after he was punched, kicked and

stomped on in a Timaru street.

Mr Bray had walked past a

property where there had been a

REAL ESTATE

Grand street appeal, contemporary interiors

47 Hackthorne Road, Cashmere

Auction: Thursday, 27 September 2018 Unless Sold Prior

5 bedrooms | 2 bathrooms | 3 toilets | 1 living room | 1 dining room | 1 office/study | 2 car-garage | 3 off-street parks | Listing #BE193116

With story book charm and grand street

appeal this home was always designed

to impress and never more so than now,

with modern homes all beginning to look

the same. The wide front portico with its

black and white chequered floor opens

into an expansive entry area with polished

wood floors, white wood panelling and the

stairway to the upstairs rooms. Impeccably

updated interiors are tasteful and elegant.

The family living and dining spaces and

kitchen are nicely connected to the central

entrance area with a second formal living

room on the opposite side. Doors can be

flung open to create large flowing spaces

or closed off for a more cosy, intimate

feel. A central wood burner efficiently

heats all the spaces with the warm glow

of real flame. The designer kitchen, all

in warm tones of white with extra wide,

freestanding oven, fits perfectly with

the character of the home while adding

contemporary convenience. A butler’s

pantry helps keep mess to a minimum

and adds a ton of storage. Adjacent to the

dining room, there is a sizeable laundry

with a showering and wash area. The

communal spaces enjoy views over the

treetops and all day sun.

There are as many as six bedrooms,

one downstairs with an ensuite and the

others all upstairs along with the main

bathroom. From the upstairs rooms there

are lovely views over the city ensuring

something to capture the eye day or night.

This substantial family home affords the

flexibility to configure it to suit your needs

with plenty of options for families of all

shapes and sizes.
