Electorate set for an open race

Tracey McLellan Catherine Chu Eugenie Sage

• By Louis Day

THE BATTLE for Banks

Peninsula is set to begin ahead

of September’s general election.

On Friday, the Labour

candidate Tracey McLellan,

National hopeful Catherine

Chu and Green Party MP

Eugenie Sage will face each

other for the first time in the

campaign in a debate at the

Governors Bay Hotel.

For the first time in several

elections it may not be a fait

accompli for Labour which has

held the seat for 27 years – the

retirement of long time MP

Ruth Dyson and boundary

changes possibly opening the

2020 race right up.

The new Banks Peninsula

electorate has emerged from

what was previously known as

Port Hills. A boundary change

sees 6500 people who were part

of the traditionally National

voting Selwyn electorate now in

Banks Peninsula.

The absence of an incumbent

only adds uncertainty to the

pursuit for the peninsula with

the retirement of Ms Dyson,

who has held the seat under

various different titles for 27

years.

In spite of the hold the

Labour has had over the area for

almost the past three decades,

Ms McLellan refused to take

anything for granted.

“Certainly our campaigning

to date has been really positive,

but I would absolutely not take

anything for granted at all,” she

said.

Ms McLellan has been a

member of the Labour Party

since 2011 and became acting

party president following Nigel

Harworth’s resignation over

the handling of sexual abuse

claims made against party

members.

Ms Chu, who attracted

criticism for deciding to stand

for the Banks Peninsula seat

whilst a city councillor for

the Riccarton Ward and also

a Canterbury District Health

Board member, said running

for the electorate was one of the

most difficult decisions she had

ever made.

Pou unveiled at Timeball Station

LAYERS OF Maori history,

heritage and rich culture

encapsulated in a new pou

whenua have been unveiled at

Lyttelton’s Timeball Station.

The landmark, carved by

Caine Tauwhare of Ngati

Wheke, celebrates the navigational

achievements of Maori

and commemorates

ancestral

connections

of iwi to

Whakaraupō/

Lyttelton Harbour.

Andrew

Coleman

It represents

traditional

knowledge and

navigational tools which Maori

have held for centuries, and will

be formally revealed at a special

ceremony coinciding with Matariki,

or Maori New Year.

Heritage New Zealand

Pouhere Taonga cares for the

timeball site, and chief executive

Andrew Coleman said it is “very

proud” to have the wonderful

taonga, or treasure, and was delighted

to host the historic event

on Thursday.

“[It] is the culmination of four

years’ hard work, dedication and

carving craftsmanship. The pou

references and acknowledges

traditional narratives from the

has replaced a temporary pou at Lyttelton’s Timeball Station.

centuries of navigation by Maori

prior to the arrival of Pakeha

and the creation of the Timeball

Station.”

The Whakaraupo Carving

Centre and Ngati Wheke

proposed having a pou situated

at the timeball as part of the

on-site interpretation after being

approached by Heritage New

Zealand Pouhere Taonga in 2017.

Ngai Tahu Funds subsequently

approved a considerable grant

for Ngati Wheke to carve the

pou.

The pou replaces a temporary

pou – a tryptic panel – that was

installed at the reopening of the

Timeball Station timeball and

flagpole in November 2018.

The tower was rebuilt

with the support of the community

and key donors and

supporters after the earthquakes

of 2010 and 2011 significantly

damaged the much-loved iconic

structure.

”Heritage New Zealand

Pouhere Taonga will always

remain grateful for the support

of the community which enabled

the organisation to return what

we see today to the Lyttelton

streetscape. The building and

daily dropping of the timeball at

1pm is part of Lyttelton’s history

and heritage that needed to be

returned and maintained,” Mr

Coleman said.

“I [was] delighted to be part of

an added chapter to the Timeball

Station’s history with the unveiling

and dedication of this pou. It

is a truly representative story of

Aotearoa New Zealand.

“It’s also very appropriate that

we unveil and dedicate the pou

at a time when we celebrate and

commemorate Matariki.”

POETRY AND book lovers

can soak up a conversation in a

Lyttelton bar with resident Ben

Brown during a new city libraries

outreach series.

The award-winning author,

performer and poet will help

launch The Unlikely Librarian

interview series with Linwood

librarian Mike Moroney at Civil

and Naval next month.

City council head of libraries

and information Carolyn

Robertson said the outreach

series aims to change people’s

perceptions of libraries – and

librarians.

“We plan to hold our ‘Unlikely

Librarian’ events in a range of

equally unlikely spaces across the

city, starting with a Lyttelton bar,”

Ms Robertson said.

“Our ‘unlikely librarian’, Mike

Moroney, is a gifted talker and

knows how to share a good story

with our burgeoning library

audience,’’ she said.

•The Unlikely Librarian

presentation: Hey Bro! A

banter with Ben Brown will be

held on August 2 at 8.30pm,

Winter Market Update

As the country makes it’s way past Matariki and toward

a waterside walkway

since the Canterbury

earthquakes could pose a

threat to recreational water

users and bird life, Avon-

Heathcote Estuary Ihutai

Trust manager Tanya

Jenkins says.

Volunteers have removed

many kilograms of glass

from alongside the lower

Heathcote/Opawaho River

but significant deposits of

the often small, but stillsharp,

rubbish remain just

below the surface, she said.

The glass appears to

have come from under a

riverside path. The issue

had been raised with trust

board members and the

next step was to talk with

the city council, she said.

“It is littered with tiny,

little pieces of glass. There

is a lot in an area that is

used by families and children,

it could be a safety

issue, and birds can be

easily cut.”

Another two big buckets

of glass – and four bags of

rubbish and small pieces

of plastic – were collected

from the area this month

by volunteers from neighbouring

Ferrymead business

Chiptech.

The business has adopted

a 100m stretch of the

river as part of the trust’s

drive to encourage nearby

businesses to regularly

tend to the waterways that

discharge into the Avon-

Heathcote estuary.

Chiptech product

manager Abby Moore

said the team of eight was

surprised at the “phenomenal”

amount of glass

found beside such a small

section of river just above

the bridge.

The worth of their work

hit home when Ms Jenkins

described how a hector’s

in its blow hole, and how

shags struggled to dive

and feed after ingesting

polystyrene, she said.

Ms Jenkins said Ferrymead

Mitre10 staff

adoped the nearby

Charlesworth Wetland

reserve a few years ago,

which had “made a tremendous

difference.”

The trust was keen to

hear from other businesses

interested in adopting a

section of waterway.

Ms Jenkins will help

with their first clean-up.

Battle for open Banks Peninsula seat

• From page 1

“Ultimately the reason why

I decided to run was because I

felt that I had something to offer

and it was something I truly

believe in. It was a way for me to

represent Christchurch as a whole

and I felt that I had something

to offer to our residents. It was a

really difficult decision but in the

end I stand by my decision and I

know it was the right decision,”

she said.

Ms Chu said her commitments

to the city council and CDHB

would always come before her

campaign.

Ms Sage, who is the Minister

of Conservation, Minister

of Land Information and

Associate Minister of

Environment, thought recovery

from the pandemic while

ensuring everyone has enough

money to put food on the table

each week, would be a key

election issue.

She also thought the health

of the environment was highly

significant to the electorate.

“Banks Peninsula is a

recreational playground for

Christchurch residents, Akaroa is

a centre for nature-based tourism

and the peninsula is important for

farming and some horticulture. A

predator free Banks Peninsula is

something close to my heart and

SHAKE-UP: The new Banks Peninsula electorate has gained

6500 people from the traditionally National voting Selwyn

electorate.

I want to help make that happen,”

she said.

Ms McLellan said recovering

and rebuilding from the

pandemic was “head and

shoulders the No 1 issue.”

Ms Chu said the key issue she

was hearing from constituents

across the electorate was the

provision of jobs under a

recovering economy.

• The July 24 debate starts

at 7pm. Entry will cost a gold

coin donation.

Going with flow to share heritage

A RESTORED 19th-century

waterwheel – along with a

group of hardy volunteers –

is driving interest in Orton

Bradley Park in Charteris Bay.

The popular heritage park is

home to one of the few operating

historical waterwheels in

New Zealand, along with Canterbury’s

oldest stone structure

– the Old Stone Cottage – built

in 1848.

Supported by a city council

heritage incentive grant, the

ongoing maintenance of the

rare waterwheel and old stables

continues to help draw people

to the site.

City council head of urban

regeneration, design and heritage

Carolyn Ingles said that the

waterwheel and stables are very

worthy of the city’s support.

“While Christchurch continues

to look to the future, it

is equally important to value

our past and the early innovation

that has helped shape our

region,” Ms Ingles said.

“Both the stables and the

mill house are scheduled as

‘significant’ heritage items in

the District Plan.”

Park manager Ian Luxford

said its owner, Orton Bradley,

devised a clever system in 1893

using water – via the waterwheel

– to drive a generator to

power his home and various

commitment to Orton Bradley Park and its history.

tools, including a grindstone

for blade shearers.

Mr Luxford, who has overseen

the park for 12 years, said

the grant has helped ensure

that the waterwheel continues

to operate, and – along with

the rest of the park’s heritage

precinct – offer a special

insight into colonial life in

Canterbury.

“Bradley imported the waterwheel

from Britain,” he said.

“It was the time of the industrial

revolution and waterwheels

were being pulled out

of factories and workshops and

replaced, so Bradley brought

one out here to use on his farm.

“It is an amazing heritage

piece, providing electricity for

the homestead, and a really

important part of our colonial

history and the area’s development

as people made the most

of what they had.”

Mr Luxford said Mr Bradley

“was really an innovator, rather

than a farmer.”

After taking over the property

from his father in 1892,

Bradley held a lifelong interest

in science and technology,

and was a pioneer in ecology,

recognising the importance of

habitats.

Mr Luxford said that volunteers

– aged in their 70s and

80s – “help power the park today.”

He said that the restored

flax mill house, farm buildings,

stables and machinery are all

in working order, “thanks to

our volunteers,” who have also

maintained the replica of the

original Bradley family home,

reconstructed from park

timber and now a summer

cafe.

“We are very fortunate to

have a group of dedicated

volunteers who carry out a

range of maintenance projects,

including recladding buildings,

creating special items in our

workshop and ensuring that

our heritage precinct is wellmaintained,”

Mr Luxford said.

“One of the volunteers has

painted the heritage buildings

several times.”

He said that all the volunteers

have shown amazing

commitment to the park and

its history.

“Today we have so many

families coming to enjoy the

park, splash in the stream and

explore the heritage buildings.”

People visiting the 650ha site

can also take in walking and

mountain bike tracks, an adventure

playground, a waterfall

and native trees. It remains a

working farm 175 years later.

Leading Lady: A life in the spotlight

by Vivienne allan

Articulate and intelligent, Eve Poole had a passion for the theatre andthe arts.

Her desire to protect one of Invercargill’s cultural icons led her into politics and she

was elected as the city’s first woman mayor in 1983.

Cath Tizard broke similar ground in Auckland that year – the two becoming trailblazers

at each end of the country. As a member of the QEII Arts Council, Eve played an active

role in encouraging the visual and performing arts across the country. She was equally

at home on the stage as an actor and director; on popular national TV shows, and

as a member of the NZ Committee on Women. Vivienne Allan tells the story of her

mother’s life with warmth and honesty, beginning with the struggle to find passage out

of Germany in the 1930s. When war broke out Eve, still only 17 and living with her

family in Tel Aviv, joined the British Army, serving as a driver in Egypt. There she met

her NZ husband and, after discharge, moved to Invercargill to raise their family. Eve’s

practicality, determination and humanity saw her retain the mayoralty for four terms

until her death in 1992.

Lionheart

by Ben Kane

1179 - Henry II’s armies have swept through England, Wales - and now Ireland.

Irish nobleman Ferdia has been imprisoned in Wales to ensure the good behaviour of

his rebellious father. But during a skirmish to relieve a castle under attack, Ferdia saves

the life of the man who would become one of the most legendary warriors in history:

Richard Coeur de Lion. The Lionheart.Taken as Richard’s squire, Ferdia crosses the

Narrow Sea to defeat the rebellious nobles in Aquitaine, besieging castles and fighting

bloody battles with brutal frequency.

But treachery and betrayal lurk around every corner. Infuriated by his younger brother

Richard’s growing reputation, the king’s heir Henry rebels. And Ferdia learns that the

biggest threat to Richard’s life may not be a foreign army - but Richard’s own family.

Metamorphosis:

A Scientist’s Story

by Glen Metcalf

“There has been a revolution in women’s lives in the ninety years since I was born.

We have emerged from a stultifying era when we were chattels of men into an age

when even the most powerful positions in New Zealand are open to women. I have

lived through stirring times.”

The story of one woman’s transformation from a traditional Kiwi ‘housewife’ of the

1950s into a Career Fellow of the New Zealand Medical Research Council

The Silk House

by Kayte nunn

Weaving. Healing. Haunting. Australian history teacher Thea Rust arrives at an

exclusive boarding school in the British countryside only to find that she is to look

after the first intake of girls in its 150-year history. She is to stay with them in Silk

House, a building with a long and troubled past, where the shadows hide more

mysteries than she could ever imagine. In the late 1700s, Rowan Caswell leaves

her village to work in the home of an English silk merchant. In London, Mary-Louise

Stephenson lives amid the clatter of the weaving trade and dreams of becoming a

silk designer, a job that is the domain of men. Arriving in the market town of Oxleigh,

she brings with her a length of fabric woven with a pattern of deadly plants that will

have far-reaching consequences for all who dwell in the silk house.

Untamed:

Stop pleasing, start living

by Glennon doyle

Who were you before the world told you who to be? Part inspiration, part memoir, Untamed

explores the joy and peace we discover when we stop striving to meet the expectations of

the world, and instead dare to listen to and trust in the voice deep inside us.

Soulful and uproarious, forceful and tender, Untamed is both an intimate memoir and a

galvanising wake-up call. It is the story of how one woman learned that a responsible

mother is not one who slowly dies for her children,but one who shows them how to

fully live. It is also the story of how each of us can begin to trust ourselves enough to set

boundaries, make peace with our bodies, honour our anger and heartbreak, and unleash

our truest, wildest instincts.Untamed shows us how to be brave.

And, as Glennon insists, ‘The braver we are, the luckier we get.’

BIRDS OF THE ESTUARY

Tanya Jenkins is the manager of the Avon-Heathcote Estuary Ihutai Trust, a nonprofit

organisation formed in 2002 to protect one of New Zealand’s most important

coastal wetlands. Each week she introduces a new bird found in the estuary. Her column

aims to raise the understanding of the values and uniqueness of the area.

Help the caspian tern live a long life

THE CASPIAN tern or

taranui is the largest of the

tern species and is native to

New Zealand.

Unfortunately, this bird

is classified as being ‘rare,

nationally vulnerable and

threatened.’

THere are only an estimated

1400 breeding pairs in the

country. We are very lucky to

have between 50 and 70 birds

in and around the estuary

and the Bromley wastewater

ponds. Bird expert Andrew

Crosland counted 75 birds

during the 2018/2019 season.

It is one of the many

reasons why our estuary has

received the status of being

“a wetland of international

significance” in 2019, making

it only the fourth wetland in

New Zealand to receive this

accolade.

This tern species can reach

the age of 24 years and are

amazing flyers. It has been

recorded that they will fly

as far as 60km out to sea to

catch fish, which during the

breeding season, will be regurgitated

to feed the chicks.

Redcliffs Fine Wine & Spirits

JULY SPECIALS

RARE: The

caspian tern will

fly 60km offshore

to catch fish.

They will also feed on large

insects and earthworms from

soft muddy areas. An interesting

observation of the caspian

tern is that once the eggs have

hatched the chicks only stay in

the nest for about five days before

they leave the nest behind

for good and start wandering

around with the parent birds.

Why are these birds declining

in numbers? They are,

like several of our bird species

here, ground-nesting which

makes them extra vulnerable

to predators like cats and rats.

Disturbance during the nesting

period, however, is equally

destructive.

The nests can be hard to

spot and when we walk close

to a nest it will cause the parent

bird to flee leaving eggs exposed

to the weather. Once the

eggs are left too long they will

get cold and will not hatch.

How can we help the terns

to thrive around our estuary?

Rat trapping your property,

keeping our cats indoors at

night and of course by keeping

our dogs on the lead not

allowing them to scare birds.

Reducing your power bill

also reduces emissions

The Redcliffs

Residents’

Association

has launched

an ecovillage

initiative in

response to

the climate

and ecological emergency.

This month member Dave

Bryce focuses on energy

ALL ENERGY derives from

the sun, and can be used as

“renewable” (solar, wind, tidal,

wave, hydro, wood, plants etc.),

or as “non-renewable” or “fossil”

energy (coal, oil, petrol, diesel,

LPG, CNG etc.).

Our coastal areas are well

placed to use energy directly

from the sun. We have high

annual sunshine hours and clear

air. Those north-facing hillside

areas are even more fortunate,

having longer sunshine hours

and more intensity.

Using renewable energy

releases emissions which our

atmosphere is used to, and

recycles. Using non-renewable

energy releases “historic” emissions

which our atmosphere

is not used to, and causes the

whole planet to warm. Power

supply companies mainly use

combinations of renewable and

non-renewable energy supplies

to produce electricity, so you can

help reduce emissions by using

a company based on renewable

energy.

You can monitor your household

energy use (both power

and travel energy) and also

compare your household with

the NZ average, by using the

online “household calculator’’

on the website www.toitu.co.nz/

calculators. You can also check

the associated “help and reduction

tips” for each category, and

try and make reductions to your

energy, emissions and power

bill.

Our Redcliffs Eco Village

Group has suggested a “citizens

climate change challenge” to

make a one per cent per month

or 10 per cent reduction each

year, so you can halve your

emissions by 2030 – as strongly

suggested by the International

Panel on Climate Change.

Water heating in your home

can use 30-50 per cent of your

power. The cost of this can be

significantly reduced if you can

install solar heating or a fire

wetback, but if you can’t, there

are simple measures which will

help, listed in the help and reduction

tips on the toitu website

above.

The Kiwi Eco Pledges

published by our Redcliffs

Eco Village Group for this

year include the following

suggestions on energy: reduce

your household energy from

suppliers by 10 per cent each

year and convert your household

lighting to LED bulbs.

Tasty Bites

Divisive cabbage a goldmine of nutrition

Cabbage is absolutely

packed with nutrients. If you

have never fried or sautéed

cabbage before, then you

need to start. Here are a

couple of quick and easy

recipes

Seriously good bacon

fried cabbage

4 servings

Ingredients

3 thick slices bacon, diced

1kg white cabbage, core

removed and chopped (10 cups)

1 tbsp garlic, minced

Pinch red pepper flakes

¼ tsp sea salt or more to taste

2 tsp Dijon mustard

2 tsp apple cider vinegar

Fresh ground black pepper

shredded (10 cups)

1½ tbsp extra-virgin olive oil

1 tbsp garlic, minced

Pinch crushed red pepper flakes

½ tsp sea salt or more to taste

½ a lemon, cut into wedges

Directions

Heat the olive oil in a large pan

over medium-high heat. Add the

cabbage, garlic, red pepper flakes

and the salt. It might seem like

too much cabbage for the pan, but

as it cooks, the cabbage will wilt

down.

Cook, stirring occasionally until

the cabbage is tender and some of

the cabbage begins to turn a light

brown – 10-15min.

Squeeze the juice from two

lemon wedges over the cabbage.

Taste then adjust with more salt,

pepper, and lemon juice as needed.

Directions

Add bacon, in one layer, to

a large pan over medium heat.

Cook, stirring occasionally until

the fat renders and the bacon is

crispy – 6-8min. Take the pan off

of the heat, and then use a slotted

spoon to transfer the bacon to a

bowl and save for later.

Remove all the bacon fat

from the pan except for one

tablespoon. Leave more or less,

depending on your preference.

NUTRITIOUS: Seriously good bacon fried cabbage, lemon garlic fried cabbage.

One tablespoon tastes great, but

doesn’t make the cabbage greasy.

Place the pan back onto

medium-high heat then add the

cabbage, garlic, red pepper flakes,

and the salt. It might seem like

too much cabbage for the pan,

but as it cooks, the cabbage will

wilt down.

Cook, occasionally stirring until

the cabbage is tender and some

of the cabbage begins to turn

light brown – 10-15min. Stir in

the mustard, apple cider vinegar,

and the cooked bacon. Taste then

adjust with more salt, pepper, and

vinegar as needed.

Skoda going from strength to strength

CALL ME A nosy neighbour if you

like. But I’m very interested in what

people drive, always looking out as

cars drive by.

Two residents on our street drive

Skodas, one’s a reasonably new

Octavia wagon that I would suggest

is a good choice for a company

car given that it is signwritten. The

other is an old Fabia hatchback,

although it is looking a bit tired it’s

still giving good service.

Interestingly, Skoda has just

released a new model, a trendy

hatchback that sits between Fabia

and Octavia, it’s named Scala and

sits in the market from a bargain

price of $29,000. There are three

Scala variants the other two list at

$34,990 and $38,990 depending

on what level of specification you

would prefer.

This evaluation focuses on the

entry level model, and it sits apart

from its stablemates through its

1-litre turbocharged three-cylinder

engine, the other two variants

have a turbocharged four-cylinder

engine of 1.5-litre.

I’m so pleased the evaluation

car was the three-potter. Regular

readers will relate to my affection

for this configuration ever since I

had a Star Media Suzuki Alto for a

work day commuter, I embraced its

honesty and economy.

Nothing has changed with the

new-generation three-cylinder

engines that are appearing in

increasing numbers, and Skoda

has capitalised on the technology

that is coming out of the wider

Volkswagen enterprise, this

engine is working its way through

several models throughout the

organisation’s product line-up.

Skoda Auto rates the 999cc unit

with a feisty 85kW, which is quite

gutsy for its size, there’s also a beefy

200Nm of torque on hand, and it is

where those outputs are developed

that makes the most interesting

reading.

Peak power is available from

5000rpm, maximum torque is

delivered all of the way from 2000

to 3500rpm, the result is a broad

spread of power, delivered in true

three-pot style, the harmonics of

this type of engine are audible,

but it’s not overbearing, and if you

think like I do you will relate to the

difference and will certainly enjoy

the feel of mid-range boost which

is characteristic of turbo engines.

Drive is delivered to the front

wheels through a seven-speed

direct shift gearbox. The benefit

of this type of transmission is that

it doesn’t load the engine in the

way a torque converter does, drive

is unimpeded and while you can

detect shift changes they are quick

and smooth.

SKODA SCALA AMBITION: Entry model has thrifty three-cylinder

engine.

I’m very keen on this type of

drive, and if you do want to get

involved in the gearchange process

you can do so through the main

gearshift lever.

In terms of figures, the Scala’s

acceleration is far from disgraced,

it will launch to 100km/h from a

standstill in 9.8sec and will make

a highway overtake (120km/h

from 80km/h) in 6sec, the latter

willing through that mid-range

torque.

The big benefit of the threecylinder

layout and small

capacity is the economy which

can be extracted from it.

Skoda Auto claims a

combined cycle average of

5.3-litres per 100km, the trip

computer readout in the evaluation

car was constantly showing

6l/100km, with 4.4l/100km listing

at a steady 100km/h, the engine

turning over quite responsive at

2300rpm.

These figures are impressive,

which means fill-ups won’t tax the

credit card. But if maximum fuel

economy isn’t a consideration,

check out the 5.7l/100km figure

of the 1.5-litre engine, that is also

quite remarkable.

Driving the Scala is just like

wearing your favourite pair of

slippers, it is comfortable, easy to

manoeuvre at just 4.3m, and is

quiet on all surfaces.

Skoda Auto market the Scala as

a small-to-medium hatch, and that

pretty much sums it up. It is small,

but rear space isn’t compromised

greatly and you do get the benefit

of an under-hatch load area of

467-litres.

Even though the entry-level

model doesn’t get all the bells and

whistles of its stablemates, you do

• Price – Skoda Scala

Ambition, $29,990

• Dimensions – Length,

4362mm; width, 1988mm;

height, 1471mm

• Configuration – Threecylinder,

front-wheeldrive,

999cc, 85kW,

299Nm, seven-speed

automatic.

• Performance –

0-100km/h, 9.81sec

• Fuel usage – 5.3l/100km

get a good level of kit for a 30k

outlay, items that figure across a lot

of Volkswagen product.

The Scala gets a torsion beam

rear suspension; put simply, each

wheel is not independent from the

other, there’s an axle tying them

together which doesn’t allow as

much freedom as there would be

otherwise.

That’s fine, so long as the spring

and damper rates have been well

chosen; thankfully, Skoda has

done a lot of development work

for global roads, and the Scala has

a comfortable, absorbent ride with

tidy handling manners.

It’s a busy time in the Skoda

dealerships, there’s been three

significant new arrivals in recent

months – the Scala, a new

crossover model badged Kamiq

and an upgraded Karoq that I

evaluated early last month.

I’m so looking forward to a drive

in the new Kamiq soon, but in the

interim the Scala did nothing to

dampen my enthusiasm for Skoda

product, it is all quality built and is

practical to boot.

EVENS

Distinct architectural design meets contemporary elegance at this 2014 bespoke build that sits within the picturesque Heathcote Valley.

Ideally elevated to absorb sunlight and embrace breathtaking vistas of the valley and surrounds, this sheltered residence offers a desirable escape near the city's

seaside suburbs.

Quality craftsmanship is showcased throughout this eye-pleasing home which includes in-built joinery, solid oak floors and doors, luxurious lighting, outstanding

appliances and exceptional feature ceilings. As you'd expect, both bathrooms and kitchen are impeccably finished, and a considerable array of heating options

promise comfort including ducted heat pumps, double glazing and underfloor heating in the bathrooms.

The hub of the home responds to the breathtaking vistas and is ideally arranged with a focus on entertaining. A spacious open plan living area and fully integrated

media room open effortlessly to decking where you unwind over a BBQ or relax in the spa, ensuring you can host guests alfresco with ease.

The master bedroom also occupies this level and enjoys deck access as well as ensuite and walk-in wardrobe. The remaining three bedrooms are located

downstairs along with the family bathroom and laundry.

The top floor loft exhibits irrefutable flexibility and could be utilised as a home office, teenage retreat, hobbies room, or could potentially be converted into a semi

self-contained area for guests or an au-pair.

Low-maintenance landscaping only heightens the property's appeal, as does the easy drive-in entrance which leads you to the internal access double garage.

Heathcote is a magnificent community to raise a family and features a local school and coffee shop while the plethora of amenities that run from Ferrymead

along to Sumner are also within reach.

Impeccably designed and faultlessly executed; this luxurious family home will attract buyers who have a taste for modern flair and fine finishes.

Uncompromising construction, exemplary taste, and extraordinary views are on display at this near-new residence that commands attention from a magnificently

sun-drenched site upon Richmond Hill.

Responding superbly to the demands of modern lifestyles, this significantly sized property hosts an impeccable family home and an additional self-contained

setting complete with a kitchen, lounge, bathroom, central heating, and dedicated access which ensures it can accommodate extended family members or

guests with considerable ease.

BAT design and Saunders Building collaborated to create an unforgettable home with an exceptional architectural finish that has been further enhanced by the

expertise of interior designer Donna Weir. Thoughtfully arranged to absorb all-day sun, this property also takes full advantage of the spectacular views over

Sumner, Pegasus Bay and beyond to the Kaikouras.

Logically arranged over two levels, the first-floor plays host to the primary living and entertaining zone. The ground floor is home to each of the three bedrooms

including the master with accompanying walk-in wardrobe and ensuite. A second living area also occupies the ground floor and showcases undeniable versatility

as it could be converted into a fourth bedroom or dedicated work from home space.

Polished concrete floors complement engineered timber floors to offer elegance underfoot, while high ceilings, bespoke joinery, oversized doors and luxurious lighting

reinforces the home's supreme style. The exquisitely appointed kitchen exhibits sheer excellence with granite countertops, a butler's pantry and outstanding appliances.

Contributing further appeal are the flat grounds, play fort, countless heating solutions creating a healthy condensation free home, ample parking and the inclusion

of all quality appliances.

This exceptional offering features many unique qualities, and the level of luxurious detailing and inspired design must be seen to be appreciated.
