Battle against bottle store continues

• By Georgia O’Connor-Harding

A BATTLE to stop another

liquor store from opening in

Halswell is continuing to rage

on.

The Halswell Residents’ Association

has appealed the decision

to allow off-licence liquor store

Bottle-O Halswell to open on

29 Ensign St, with the opening

hours of 9am-11pm daily.

The appeal was made to the Alcohol

Regulatory and Licensing

Authority.

The bottle store won’t be able

to open until the appeal period is

finished.

The bottle store was approved

by the district licensing committee

last month and had 37 objections

against the application.

There were also five petitions

containing 32 signatures against

the application.

Residents’ association chairman

John Bennett said

the fact it wants to put an offlicence

facility in the middle

of suburbia is not good for the

community.

“We believe it was wrong and

we think that the community

deserves better,” he said.

In October it objected to the

application with concerns there

would be “many aspects of

amenity loss” if it was approved.

Mr Bennett said the

association believes there are

sufficient facilities in Halswell for

alcohol with Craythorne’s Public

House, Super Liquor and New

World Halswell.

ANOTHER PROMISING young

sportsman has gone to the United States to

pursue his dream.

On page 8 today, reporter Gordon

Findlater talks to golfer Ben Baker who

has taken up a four-year golf scholarship at

Nicholls State University in Louisiana.

He will join the thousands upon thousands of other promising

young golfers in the US, firstly trying to break into secondary

tours which can springboard you onto the PGA.

Baker, 19, is a product of Christchurch Boys’ High School,

which won its maiden New Zealand secondary schools title in

2017.

Baker is now the third member of that promising team to

head to the US on a golf scholarship, following Tom Parker

(University of Oregon) and Dominic Brettkelly (Western Kentucky

University).

Lots of talent out there.

Complaints remain secret

SWIMMING

• By Georgia O’Connor-Harding

THE CITY council is remaining

tight-lipped over code of

conduct complaints involving

Halswell-Hornby-Riccarton

Community Board members.

It has refused to reveal details

to Western News on the behindclosed-doors

sessions that went

on last year to resolve issues

amongst the board.

But a residents’ association

which labelled the board “dysfunctional”

says the information

should be public.

Central Riccarton Residents’

Association secretary Garth

Wilson said the ratepayer should

know if there is “dysfunction”

on the board.

“It is the ratepayers’ business,

it is the ratepayers’ money that

is being squandered by this

dysfunction,” he said.

His views were backed by

Templeton Residents’ Association

chairman Garry Kilday,

who said the public should know

what is happening.

A request by Western News for

all correspondence between Dr

Edwards and the community

board on the code of conduct

of fellow board members was

refused.

A city council spokesman said

the privacy of those who make

TROUBLE: The city council is refusing to release information

on conflict between the Halswell-Hornby-Riccarton

Community Board which led to behind-closed-door meetings

with the mayor and chief executive. ​

complaints to the city council or

the nature of the complaints are

not generally released.

He said releasing the information

could have a “negative

effect” on expressing their opinions

openly in the future.

“In the council’s view, the

reasons for withholding these

details are not outweighed by

public interest considerations.”

Western News reported last

year the board privately met

with city council chief executive

Lianne Dalziel in October.

Dr Edwards had received

complaints about the conduct of

board members.

She told Western News the

meeting centred on challenges

they faced, in particular, surrounding

the Denton Park

decision-making process, their

relationships and joint-decision

making.

But Halswell-Hornby-

Riccarton Community Board

chairman Mike Mora said issues

it had faced “absolutely” did not

get in the way of the board getting

the job done.

“Our record is we get the job

done. Everything we have been

asked to do or has been put in front

of us we will make a decision either

one way or another,” he said.

Mr Mora said it is not the only

board in the city facing code of

conduct issues.

The Papanui-Innes, Coastal-

Burwood and Linwood-Heathcote-Central

Community Board

have faced code of conduct

issues over the past year.

But Dr Wilson said the association’s

experience with the

board is it is unable to resolve any

issues in a timely manner and it

now goes above the board to Dr

Edwards to get things done.

“We are not saying the

personalities on the boards are

hopeless. We are saying the

board is dysfunctional and it

does not achieve anything,” he

said.

Mr Mora said it passes resolutions

at the board and has to

wait on staff to implement them.

“It is the way bureaucracy

works in Christchurch,” he said.

Deputy chairwoman Helen

Broughton said she will be meeting

with two senior city council

staff members today over the

process in place for elected

members.

POOL HOURS

A bid to have the Te Hapua:

open for longer has been made. A

notice of motion filed by Halswell-

The Te Hapua Halswell Summer

PARKING RESTRICTION

The Halswell-Hornby-Riccarton

Community Board will make

a decision today on whether it

will approve the installation of

a 10min parking restriction at

takeaway business owner contacting

the city council to have shortterm

the business property.

TRAILER OVERTURNS

A blockage on the Christchurch

Southern Motorway was caused

by a truck’s trailer overturning on

Friday morning. The trailer lost

spokeswoman said there did not

appear to be any injuries. The

road was cleaned up and trailer

Pathway to sports hub idea

• By Georgia O’Connor-Harding

A PATHWAY to the new Ngā

Puna Wai Sports Hub could be

built to keep children off busy

Halswell roads.

A junior council made up

of primary school pupils in

Halswell will meet in March to

discuss building a pathway from

Aidanfield Christian School to

the $100 million sports facility.

City councillor

Anne

Galloway said

the idea is to

allow parents

to park safely

at the school’s

car park as

Anne Galloway

opposed to

parking on

Aidanfield

Drive to take their children the

Nga Puna Wai Sports Hub.

It would mean children would

avoid walking on Aidanfield

Drive, Euphrasie Drive and Augustine

Drive.

“It is getting kids involved

in decision-making and in

civics which is something I am

passionate about,” Cr Galloway

said.

It is estimated about 5433 vehicles

travel on Aidanfield Drive

between Nash Rd and Donovan

Place daily.

CIVIC DUTY: The Halswell Ward junior council will meet in

March to plan building a pathway between Aidanfield Christian

School and the Ngā Puna Wai Sports Hub. ​

On average, 499 vehicles

use Eupharasie Drive between

Josephine Cres and Benedict St

daily.

Instigated by Cr Galloway in

2017, the Halswell Ward junior

council is made up of pupils year

5-8 from Seven Oaks School,

Oaklands School and Aidanfield

Christian School.

Cr Galloway said it is planning

to invite the newly completed

Knights Stream School and

Wigram Primary School to the

junior council when they are up

and running.

The project will also be worked

on in conjunction with the

Student Volunteer Army and the

city council.

The pathway is in the early

stages with the cost and construction

time lines still yet to be

discussed.

“We are hoping we do all of

that with voluntary labour but

we need to plan where it will be,”

Cr Galloway said.

BATTLE: The Halswell Residents’ Association has appealed

against the decision allowing a bottle store to open on 29

Ensign St. ​

Battle against bottle store

•From page 1

But the decision granting

the application said Bottle-O

Halswell directors Wendy and

Richard Gibbons have the experience

necessary to safely sell

alcohol.

It found the hours of operation

were consistent with other

off-licence premises in the area

and the store was not visible to

schools and pre-schools.

The residents’ association

argued in its objection that since

The Quarry Bar & Bistro has

gone from Ensign St there has

been an improvement in the level

of amenity and petty vandalism

has gone.

The bar was severely damaged

after a fire in 2013.

But the decision said the risk

The revolution

in heat pumps

is here now!

of similar effects arising from the

bottle store would be mitigated

by the amenity of The Oaks Village

Halswell.

It said it will also be minimised

by the good amenity in

the area, the position of the store

within the development and the

lack of evidence of disorder in

the locality.

The appeal will go to a hearings

panel later this year.

Bottle-O Halswell Ltd director

and shareholder Mrs Gibbons

did not respond to Western

News.

Short cut fears allayed

• By Georgia O’Connor-Harding

RESIDENTS’ FEARS have been

allayed over traffic taking short

cuts to avoid major road works

in Riccarton Rd.

Riccarton Bush-Kilmarnock

Residents’ Association chairman

Tony Simons said he is satisfied

with the city council’s assurance

that there won’t be large

increases in

traffic through

residential

streets.

“But having

said that,

traffic already

does that in

Tony Simons

the morning

anyway. I

imagine it will get worse in spite

of the fact they say it won’t,” he

said.

The roadworks to begin next

month will involve upgrading

damaged underground

pipes and rebuilding the road

to accommodate bus priority

measures.

It is not expected to be

completed until December

2020.

The association recently asked

the city council what it would

do to mitigate “anticipated

adverse behaviour of changed

traffic behaviour” on its residential

streets.

Residents were concerned

about speeding vehicles and

traffic levels at peak times

exceeding what the residential

streets would normally carry.

City council transport planning

and delivery manager

Lynette Ellis said it is not anticipating

a significant increase

in traffic utilising surrounding

residential roads.

“Riccarton Rd will continue

to operate with one lane of traffic

in each direction throughout

the works,” she said.

Ms Ellis said temporary remedial

options, should they be

required, would be looked at on

a case by case basis.

The city council’s project team

is in the process of ordering

traffic counts to take place on

the residential streets to monitor

traffic levels during construction.​

Rimu St resident Lyndon

Telfer said he has been to

a drop-in session with city

council staff and Fulton Hogan

and is confident they are going

to make every effort to make the

process a smooth one.

But he said the short cutting

is happening already and the

roadworks have the potential to

make it worse.

New vicar

sought for

church

• By Georgia O’Connor-Harding

ST CHRISTOPHER’S Anglican

Church is on the hunt for a new

vicar.

Vicar Mark Hood resigned

from the role last month after

serving at the church, based on

Avonhead Rd, for four years.

But priest-in-charge Reverend

Susan Gill, who has taken over

the role in the meantime, said the

church is happy to take its time in

finding a new vicar.

“The last person to have an

interim role was here two years

so things don’t move quickly in

Anglican churches,” she said.

Reverend Gill said the church is

very optimistic in wanting to be

more focused on the wider community

this year than they have

been in the past.

“My background is in community

development before I

was ordained so I am personally

am really passionate about the

church’s place in the wider community,”

she said.

The church holds many community

events throughout the

year including book fairs, a youth

group, movie nights and the St

Christopher’s Fair.

Investigation

into use of

burnout pad

at Ruapuna

• By Georgia O’Connor-Harding

AN INVESTIGATION is under

way into whether a burnout pad

can be used at Ruapuna Speedway.

Noise complaints prompted the

city council to investigate whether

a resource consent issued to the

race track 18 years ago is still live.

Ruapuna Speedway contracted

its burnout pad to the New Zealand

Burnout Championship for its

Southern SmokeFest on January 19

– resulting in two noise complaints.

City council head of resource

consents John Higgins said the

consent was issued in 2001 for an

indefinite period but it is checking

lapsing provisions relating to the

consent.

“We need

to check what

lapsing period

applies to

this consent

and when

the pad was

Sara

Harnett Kikstra

constructed,” Mr

Higgins said.

If it is found

the resource

consent is not live, Ruapuna

Speedway will have to cease using

the burnout pad or apply for

resource consent, he said.

The speedway’s president

Allan Daly said the burnout pad

was contracted out only for the

Southern Smokefest and it does not

intend to use it again.

He said it is in discussion with

the city council to make sure it

“gets it right going forward.”

Mr Daly said it would not go

to the expense of applying for

another resource consent if that

was what was required by the city

council.

Yaldhurst Rural Residents’

Association chairwoman Sara

Harnett Kikstra said hopefully it

will not happen again. “I hope the

council does investigate and work

out whether they were able to do

it or not, and if they weren’t they

should be accountable for that.

Because the damage is done. We

had a weekend from hell,” she said.

A reader responds to the

an article on extending

the hours at the Te Hāpua:

Halswell Centre summer

pool

Linda Gilchrist – I read

with interest the article in the

Western News regarding the

hours for the Halswell pool.

We live in the area and were

very disappointed when the

pool opened to find it was not

covered and the hours are so

limited, especially for early

risers and those who work fulltime.

My husband and I, both

keen swimmers, travel to Jellie

Park Recreation & Sport Centre

to enable us to swim year-round.

Obviously, we would much

prefer to support the local

community but the Halswell

pool fails miserably to cater for

year-round pool users.

stating that residents were not

aware of the change in hours last

season.

then no, it probably won’t work.

The council needs to come

the city council has not listened

to people who are in the area,

live in the area, work in the area

and actually run a business in

the area.

Trevor Taylor – They have

promised all this at other sites

in the past and businesses have

gone under. Don’t expect a

different result this time from

the same recipe.

raring to go, along with the ever

impressive Formula 5000’s, a class with

serious excitement.

The Muscle Cars, which highlight a

field choked with Chev Camaro’s and

Ford Mustangs, have grown from the

formation of the Central Muscle Cars

in the North Island and the Australian

Masters Touring Car category.

Wharenui wins Hollander Cup again

MILESTONE: Wharenui club swimmers celebrate their 10th

straight Hollander Cup success. ​

WHARENUI SWIM Club

have won their 10th straight

Hollander Cup at the Swimming

Canterbury West Coast Regional

Championships.

The Hollander Cup is a 15 x

50m open relay, meaning men

and women compete against

each other, between clubs from

the Canterbury West Coast

region.

Wharenui took the honours in

a tight relay, finishing in a total

time of 6min 42.74sec, ahead

of the Jasi Swim Club (6min

46.48sec) and the Aquagym

Swimming Club (6min 53.44sec)

Moana Pool in Dunedin hosted

the championships, which

lasted four days and saw 210

swimmers from 15 clubs in the

Canterbury and West Coast region

compete. They were joined

by 35 visitors from the Southland

and Otago regions.

There was also personal success

for Wharenui’s Christopher

Elson, who won both the men’s

50m freestyle and 50m butterfly.

Three Jasi swimmers also

claimed a number of open titles.

Quinton Hurley won the men’s

200m freestyle, 400m freestyle,

800m freestyle and 1500 freestyle

titles. Kaylee Jackson won

the women’s 50m breaststroke,

100m breaststroke and 200m

breaststroke titles, while Manaia

Butler won the women’s 100m

freestyle.

EXPERIENCE: Seamus Gallagher and Nicholas Murphy were invited to bolster the Wellington

Phoenix Soccer School under-12 squad in Japan.

Young Phoenix players share

memories after tour of Japan

CHRISTCHURCH United

talents Seamus Gallagher and

Nicholas Murphy have returned

from Japan with incredible

memories, new friendships and

invaluable new experiences

about what is required at the

highest level.

The two Christchurch United

players were invited to bolster

the Wellington Phoenix Soccer

School under-12 squad for a

gruelling two-week tour around

Japan where they played 11

matches against some of Japan’s

leading professional football

clubs.

Nicholas said he was grateful

to have experienced “a-once-ina-lifetime

opportunity” on and

off the pitch, as a footballer and

as a young person.

The St Bede’s College student

had been immensely impressed

by the intensity of his Japanese

peers.

“They were quick, disciplined

and kept their hunger for the

whole game,” said Nicholas.

Seamus, who attends St

Thomas’, said he was inspired by

playing against teams who operate

at a professional level.

“It left me with the question of

how do I close the gap between

what I can do and how they play

in Japan?”

As the tour progressed, the

Christchurch United players and

their Phoenix teammates proved

that they could adjust to their

new opponents and environments.

The Phoenix team beat five

Japanese club sides, including

a nail-biting penalty shoot-out

against Funabashi FC in the

semi-final, before the top Japanese

professional club Kashiwa

Reysol proved to be too strong in

the final.

• By Gordon Findlater

BEN BAKER headed stateside

on January 13 to begin a

four-year golf scholarship at

Nicholls State University in

Louisiana.

The 19-year-old finished his

time at Christchurch Boys’ High

School at the end of 2017.

Baker took a gap year, which

has paid off for him with the

opportunity to become part of

Nicholls State’s golf programme.

He started playing golf when

he was 11 after being introduced

to the sport by his father and

brothers who already played.

“After I gave up rugby from

getting injured too often, I

decided to give golf a go. We

had heard Russley Golf Club

had a great junior programme

so we headed down to have a

look and get some info on it,

then signed up later that week,”

said Baker.

He was part of the

Christchurch Boys’ High School

team which won their maiden

New Zealand secondary schools

golf title in 2017. Baker is now

the third member of that team

to head to the US on a golf

scholarship, joining Tom Parker

(University of Oregon) and

Dominic Brettkelly (Western

Kentucky University).

At the national tournament,

CBHS led by one shot after

the first round before the pair

of Parker and Baker went

bogey-free in the second round

to widen the gap on the field

and lead CBHS to their first

national title. Barker was part

of the Canterbury under-19

team which finished third at

last year’s national provincial

tournament. He was also part

of Russley’s men’s inter-club

team which defended their

Woodward Cup title.

Baker is majoring in business

management at Nicholls State.

“I have met heaps of people

already and everyone has been

welcoming, which is nice. I

have my first tournament on

Saturday at the La Tour Golf

Club,” said Baker.

House of Cards is a day-time bridge club

situated in Merivale. Our philosophy is to

provide a friendly, family-type environment

for bridge players.

Bridge is not only a wonderful, stimulating

game, it is also splendidly social. We have

had much pleasure in seeing many new

friendships flourish over the years.

House of Cards is especially renowned

for its teaching and we have taught literally

thousands of beginners as well as improvers,

in Christchurch and around New Zealand.

We have run several national teachers’

conferences and have been instrumental

in creating a national standard for bridge

teachers.

We have also written a whole series of

bridge books for new and improving players

which are widely used in New Zealand,

Australia and the United Kingdom.

We are a friendly, enthusiastic team

who welcome new players. We have four

sessions dedicated especially for the novice

player, so you needn’t feel nervous!

We will also introduce you to

SkyBridgeClub. This is an online club

catering for the improving player, where

you can practice online during your course.

It’s a great way to learn.

learn to Line Dance

The dance floor – a place where bills

and responsibility don’t exist, where

stress is gone and nothing matters but the

music. The dance floor is freedom, say the

Cathedral City Line Dancers.

A recent German study tested people

who tried different forms of exercise and

then measured their hippocampuses

(the memory centre of their brains) and

those who did Line Dancing were better

protected from dementia and memory loss.

So, if you like to dance, want a social life

with a friendly bunch of people and a lot

of laughs while exercising your brain, then

Line Dancing could be just what you are

looking for. They even cater for people with

two left feet.

You can have all this, plus meet new

friends by joining Cathedral City Line

Dancers and learning to dance with Mary.

For details, see the advertisement on this

Wellbeing & Beauty

Much more than ‘JUST CUTS’

Sending the kids back

to school just got a little

less stressful, thanks to

the team at Just Cuts in

Hornby. Not only will

they cut your children’s

hair so that they look cool

for their first day back,

but they are also on hand

to deal with one of the

most persistent problems

that they can bring back

home with them – lice

and nits (their eggs).

These creatures are easily

transferred from head-tohead,

regardless of how

clean the hair is, but the

Just Cuts exclusive range

of Natural Look Anti Lice treatment is

effective and so natural that it is crueltyfree.

The active ingredient is pyrethrum,

obtained from the pyrethrum daisy. The

range includes an oil which removes lice

and nits immediately, a maintenance

shampoo and a leave-in conditioner which

continues to work between shampoos. The

combination of natural oils and pyrethrum

mean that when this product is used

regularly, head lice and

nits are both controlled

and prevented.

This natural approach

is reflected in their

proudly chemical-free

environment. Although

that means no foils, they

do provide shampoos,

blow-waves, at-basin

deep-conditioning

treatments, and even

beard and moustache

trimming. Although

they are a drop-in, no

appointment salon, if you

have a special occasion

one night and you need

a hair-up that afternoon,

they will keep a spot for you and make

sure you leave looking fabulous. To keep

you looking great after your appointment,

they sell the salon-quality Justice range

which has everything from at-home

colours to shampoos, conditioners, and

styling products.

Just Cuts is completely family-oriented,

welcoming everyone from babies to

grandparents. Its location at the heart of

The Hub means that getting the

family’s hair cut couldn’t be more

convenient - it can be done on the

same trip as the grocery-shop and

getting the new year’s stationery

and school shoes organised.

Last year, the salon won Just

Cuts Franchisee of the Year,

just two years after it opened,

ranking it first out of 26 salons

across New Zealand, and with

80% of their clients going back

again and again, the team want to

extend a big ‘thank you’ to their

loyal customers. They believe

in giving back to their clients.

Their family bonus card system

is shared right across a family so

whoever gets their hair cut, the

card is stamped and the eighth

haircut is free. Their friendly and

welcoming attitude to their clients

is exceptional – Mondays to

Fridays see a senior discount and

a baby’s first haircut is free; DVDs

are on hand to distract younger clients,

and balloons and lollipops are available for

children of all ages. A visit to Just Cuts is

much more than just a cut.

Join a night class at

Papanui High School

It is time to make those New Year

resolutions so why not begin 2019 by

taking some time for yourself and joining

one of the wide range of nightclasses that

are on offer at Papanui High School.

The start of a new year is the ideal

opportunity to get inspired to get out and

learn something new and meet some new

people? Classes for Term 1 begin from

Monday 11 February and the options are

extensive from Art to Yoga and everything

in between we are sure regardless of your

age or interest you will find something

to tempt you. Classes at Papanui High

School are held in a warm, friendly relaxed

environment and our tutors are supportive

and well qualified in their chosen fields.

One of our new courses on offer is

Cake Design, taught by Paula Profitt from

Sweet Revenge Bakery. Paula is a very

experienced Cake Designer and she will

teach students how to layer and fill and ice

a cake to a smooth finish, piping techniques

and the art of a good drizzle along with

mirror glazes and chocolate decorations.

You will also learn how to make fondant

cake toppers in various styles.

For further information and enrolment

in any of our courses please visit our

website www.papanui.school.nz go to the

Adult Education tab at the top right of the

screen and then browse courses, or email

Barbara Roper rpb@papanui.school.nz

or telephone our office on 3520701.

New experiences at WEA

It is almost time for the new term to

start here at the Canterbury Workers

Educational Association (WEA). Just as the

new year brings a chance for us all to reflect

and set goals for positive change in the year

ahead, so to does the new school year for

us at the WEA, as we plan and schedule

courses, talks and learning opportunities

across the coming months. Positive change

(whether for personal or planetary gain)

is what the WEA is all about and we are

excited to offer plenty to support positive

change in the Term 1 programme (which

runs February 11th to April 7th).

With new courses in printmaking and

creative writing, and workshops ranging

from crafting feminism to renaissance

dance there is plenty to help you get creative

this summer.

We also have talks coming up from and

about some truly inspiring people and

organisations. We will be joined by Mojo

Mathers on 20th February (New Zealand’s

first deaf Member of Parliament) for a

look at why disability representation in

politics matters for all of us. Then during

Seaweek (6th March) we will hear from the

volunteers at Sea Shepherd on the threats

to our underwater ecosystems and the

work they are doing to protect them. There

are also talks about Marie Curie, Ernest

Shackleton and William Morris to mention

but a few.

For those wanting to take action in their

own lives to make a difference, a course in

taking sustainability to the next level will

be on Wednesday evenings (it even has

dinner included) followed by one on how

to live well with less (Living Tiny(er)) on

Thursday evenings.

All in all there are more than 40 listed

events, all of which can be booked

online at www.cwea.org.nz . Our printed

programme is available from our front

porch (59 Gloucester street) or at your

local library, and our office is open

9.30-3pm Monday to Friday. We look

forward to answering your questions and

hopefully helping

you to make 2019

a year of new

experiences and

positive learning!

FREE Arts & Design

course, with NCEA built in

For those looking for a role that

combines artistic and digital talents, then

this outstanding, FREE, entry level course

delivered by local Training Provider

Trainme, is perfect for those wishing to

pursue, graphic design, photography or

digital media as a career.

The course covers the introduction to

media techniques such as drawing and

photography. Students will learn to use

design software and create their own design

concepts while collaborating with other

students on creative projects.

This course is FREE to students aged 16

to 19 and they only have to have NCEA 1

to join. Students without NCEA 1 can be

admitted, if they show artistic or digital

aptitude.

“Many feel that school is not working for

them or they left without qualifications,”

says Rhys Pollard, Marketer with tertiary

educator Trainme. “While not necessarily

academically minded, they do

have artistic talents and are very

much into digital technology.”

“This FREE six-month

Trainme course, combines

these in a very hands-on,

practical way, giving them an

intro into various digital media.

This way, they can decide which

direction to pursue as their

career focus.”

“As an NZQA approved

programme, NCEA credits

are built in, so if they apply

WESTERN NEWS

themselves, they can graduate with a New

Zealand Certificate in Arts and Design

Level 2, as well as gaining credits towards

NCEA level 1 or 2.” Says Pollard.

“NCEA results will depend on how many

credits they bring to the course to start

with, but as it’s a fun subject, it won’t feel

like school at all.”

Successful Graduates from this

programme could pathway into higher

study in media arts, which could include

graphic design, video production,

photography or one of the many emerging

digital-based careers. Places are limited, so

students are encouraged to apply as soon as

they can.

Price: $3,795,000

4 bedrooms | 3 bathrooms | 4 toilets | 3 living rooms | 1 dining room | 1 office/study | 3 car-garage | Listing Number: PI54988

Rarely are we favoured with the

opportunity to bring to the market a home

of this quality and size within a prestigious

neighbourhood, where luxury residences

are few and far between. With all the

earthquake repairs thoroughly completed

the house is now insured with NZI ready

for the next owners to enjoy its splendour.

Epitomizing a cutting edge design,

this striking home is a commitment to

contemporary architectural language and

unparalleled luxury. Designed by Stufkens

+ Chambers Architects the home has

perfectly encapsulated an ambience of

timeless elegance, while forsaking nothing

in practicality and functionality.

With a rich floor area of 501sqm, the

home built in 2010 is notable for the way

in which it explores the three separate

buildings joined by transparent links

wrapped around an open courtyard

to create a timeless, modern building,

appropriate to its urban location.

With precise planning and detailing it

incorporates four bedrooms, several living

areas, soundproof media room, mezzanine,

study, gym, pool/spa, and an air conditioned

wine cellar as well as triple car garaging.

All with water views and effortless indooroutdoor

flow, lighting and well thought out

landscaping, it is the perfect result.

The natural palette of materials and

colours used throughout the home delivers

on a promise of calm and clarity with oak

timber veneer, timber flooring, exposed

aggregate concrete walls, frosted glass

and simple white interior. Inspections

will reveal the full extent of the luxurious

detailing. Automated roller blinds, localized

air-conditioning, double-glazing, extensive

underfloor heating, smart security and

home automation system start a very long

list of quality specifications.

Located just a few minutes to either the

city or the beach, with local amenities

meaning you will never need to leave this

pinnacle position

The extravagance of this home requires

new occupants and prudent purchasers

will recognise that this is indeed a rare

opportunity for a life that excites the senses.

Adequate superlatives elude us, so we must

make do with just two words - SEE IT!
