after 10 days jam-packed with<br />

local talent.<br />

you, Lyttelton<br />

More than 2500 people<br />

attended the festival, which was<br />

a great success, organiser Skye<br />

Broberg said.<br />

“It was really wonderful,<br />

overall, with the response we<br />

had,” she said.<br />

The second week featured<br />

acts like Lizzie Tollemache’s<br />

Bedtime Stories for Grown-<br />

Ups, which Broberg said was<br />

magical – and the Lyttelton<br />

Arts Factory may look to host<br />

once a month.<br />

“It was so wonderful,<br />

everyone was just floating out<br />

on a high,” she said.<br />

Squash club,<br />

community<br />

centre<br />

arbitration<br />

date set<br />

• By Heidi Slade<br />

THE MT Pleasant Squash Club<br />

has budgeted $15,000 for legal fees<br />

to try and stop it being taken over<br />

by the Mt Pleasant Community<br />

Centre.<br />

The club is in a legal dispute<br />

with the centre after being issued<br />

a notice to terminate its licence<br />

to occupy the McCormacks <strong>Bay</strong><br />

facility, which it has been in for<br />

more than 40 years.<br />

Tit-for-tat letters between<br />

lawyers acting for the club and the<br />

centre have led to the notice being<br />

put on hold until arbitration is<br />

held between the two.<br />

<strong>Bay</strong> <strong>Harbour</strong> News can now<br />

reveal arbitration will take place<br />

in November.<br />

Squash club members were told<br />

at its annual meeting last Tuesday<br />

the $15,000 budget would be taken<br />

from the club’s cash reserves.<br />

Two members raised concerns<br />

using the money would be a<br />

breach of the club’s constitution.<br />

But club president Hamish<br />

Methven said that was incorrect.<br />

“It’s not in the constitution.<br />

We can use club funds for legal<br />

action,” he said.<br />

Quake-damaged lodge restored<br />

THE RESTORATION of a<br />

Lyttelton heritage building is<br />

now complete after more than<br />

five years in the making.<br />

The Kilwinning Masonic<br />

Lodge on Canterbury St was<br />

built in 1881.<br />

It was originally a single-story<br />

structure, named in<br />

honour of what is believed to<br />

be the oldest masonic lodge in<br />

Scotland.<br />

In 2000, well-known Lyttelton<br />

artist Bill Hammond purchased<br />

the building, where he<br />

lived and worked for 10 years.<br />

It was significantly damaged<br />

in the February 22, 2011,<br />

earthquake, and was deemed<br />

uninhabitable.<br />

In 2015, the building was<br />

bought by Kotahi Engineering<br />

Sidewalk and Kohl, excellent value for<br />

this quality.<br />

• From page 1<br />

Methven<br />

said the club’s<br />

committee also<br />

got legal advice<br />

on using the<br />

funds.<br />

“Every club<br />

member is<br />

supporting us<br />

to fight for the<br />

club. It’s overwhelming how<br />

much support we’ve got,” he<br />

said.<br />

Community centre acting<br />

president Debbie Wolff did not<br />

respond to <strong>Bay</strong> <strong>Harbour</strong> News’<br />

questions, asking how much the<br />

community centre has allocated<br />

for its legal funds and if the<br />

centre has funds available.<br />

She said she could not respond<br />

to questions due to the upcoming<br />

arbitration.<br />

“We don’t have any further<br />

comments to make on the matter,”<br />

Wolff said.<br />

“There’s not a lot more to say.”<br />

The squash club also passed<br />

several amendments to its<br />

constitution, which was written<br />

in the 1980s, at the annual<br />

meeting.<br />

“We’re trying to do our piece<br />

to make it more modern,” Methven<br />

said.<br />

“We approved our changes at<br />

the AGM. I now have to present<br />

those changes to the community<br />

centre at their next committee<br />

meeting.”<br />

The amendments include<br />

decreasing the number of<br />

committee members the club<br />

has and adjustments to its<br />

timing for its annual general<br />

meeting to coincide with the<br />

modern financial year, Methven<br />

said.<br />

The community centre will<br />

vote on the amendments.<br />

The centre will also appoint<br />

Methven believes Paul Monk<br />

is a likely candidate.<br />

Monk is the president of the<br />

Sumner Tennis and Squash Club<br />

and a Squash Canterbury board<br />

member.<br />

“It’s inappropriate. It’s a<br />

Methven said.<br />

Monk would not comment,<br />

saying the only person<br />

ENVIRONMENT Canterbury is<br />

responsible for supporting the wellbeing<br />

of our region by delivering<br />

environmental management, public<br />

community resilience.<br />

We want to hear from our<br />

communities about the visions and<br />

outcomes we should work on for our<br />

lived-in and natural environment.<br />

We’re asking for your feedback and<br />

thoughts on:<br />

Air<br />

Clean air is vital for supporting human<br />

health and healthy ecosystems. What<br />

more should we do to keep odour, dust<br />

and pollutants from our air?<br />

Land<br />

Our landscape supports the rural<br />

economy and unique biodiversity, and<br />

has immense historical and cultural<br />

significance. Have we got our priorities<br />

right?<br />

Water<br />

Unhealthy waterways are unacceptable<br />

for our community. How much more<br />

should we do to protect water quality for<br />

future generations?<br />

Coast<br />

Our coastal environment is of special<br />

significance to mana whenua as an<br />

important source of kai moana and<br />

home to a range of taonga species.<br />

Built environment<br />

However we choose to live in the<br />

future, we need infrastructure like<br />

transport, energy and water networks in<br />

the right places.<br />

climate change on our communities,<br />

businesses and ecosystems. What<br />

more can we do to prepare for future<br />

changes?<br />

Do we have the balance right, are we<br />

doing too much or not enough?<br />

He said flyers were<br />

distributed to residents last<br />

week to ask if they wanted<br />

a trap on their property.<br />

The traps will use bait,<br />

such as carrots, apples,<br />

peanut butter and visual<br />

lures, to attract the<br />

possums.<br />

Alex Albright<br />

Albright said staff will<br />

check the traps every<br />

morning for the two-week<br />

period. Any possums<br />

caught will then be disposed<br />

of.<br />

While a considerable<br />

amount of manpower will<br />

be needed to check all the<br />

traps, Albright said<br />

they will be “chucking<br />

everything we<br />

have at it”.<br />

He said the<br />

PFBP plans to<br />

run the trapping<br />

programme annually<br />

over winter,<br />

when the possum’s<br />

food supply is low,<br />

making them more<br />

inclined to take the bait.<br />

“(Possums) do a lot of<br />

damage,” Albright said.<br />

“They go after the<br />

insects, they go after the<br />

foliage, they can eat bird<br />

eggs.<br />

“Ultimately we don’t<br />

want any possums here,”<br />

he said.<br />

Albright estimated there<br />

are more than 100,000 possums<br />

in PFBP’s 23,000ha<br />

operation zone.<br />

After the traps had been<br />

operational for two weeks,<br />

PFBP staff will bring them<br />

in and prepare them for<br />

next year’s trapping programme.<br />

“After the first pulse, I<br />

still imagine there’s going<br />

to be a lot of possums<br />

out there. This is just to<br />

get things rolling and get<br />

things started.”<br />

When asked whether<br />

the traps pose a risk to<br />

pets like domestic cats,<br />

Albright said the trapping<br />

programme is a low-risk<br />

method.<br />

While cats could end up<br />

in the traps, Albright said<br />

they would not be harmed<br />

and team members would<br />

release them very quickly.<br />

“It is harmless and they<br />

will get released.”<br />

He said if a cat walked<br />

into a trap, they would<br />

likely do it at night.<br />

Albright said cat owners<br />

may want to keep their<br />

pets indoors overnight<br />

during the two week<br />

programme.<br />

been named in Canada’s 32-<br />

man squad to tour Tonga next<br />

month.<br />

The squad for the two-test<br />

The uncapped Casey was named<br />

in the team to tour Brazil last<br />

year but did not take the field.<br />

Casey, 23, made his Wave debut<br />

earlier this season. He previously<br />

played for the Toronto Arrows<br />

in North America’s Major<br />

League Rugby competition.<br />

Casey, who hails from Ottawa<br />

and studied at the University of<br />

Victoria in Ontario, started in<br />

all but one of the Wave’s round<br />

robin matches at centre or on<br />

the right wing.<br />

The Wave face Sydenham at<br />

Saint Leonards Square in the<br />

Metro Premier plate semi-final<br />

at 3pm on Saturday. They failed<br />

to make the cup semi-final after<br />

losing to New Brighton 25-21<br />

in the elimination final at the<br />

weekend.<br />

Casey has also been involved<br />

with coaching at St Andrew’s<br />

TREASURES FROM THE PAST<br />

The Diamond <strong>Harbour</strong> ferry service<br />

THE DIAMOND <strong>Harbour</strong> ferry<br />

wharf at Lyttelton Port, once a<br />

favourite diving platform for<br />

school children, also served local<br />

ferry services for well over a<br />

century, with ferries connecting<br />

a number of jetties around<br />

Whakaraupō Lyttelton <strong>Harbour</strong><br />

– from Te Waipapa Diamond<br />

<strong>Harbour</strong>, to Motu-kauati-iti<br />

Corsair <strong>Bay</strong> and Ōtoromiro<br />

Governors <strong>Bay</strong>.<br />

In 1852, Mark Stoddart<br />

assumed ownership of the<br />

Diamond <strong>Harbour</strong> land and<br />

identified the necessity of a jetty<br />

to expedite the movement of<br />

goods and produce from his<br />

farm across the short distance<br />

by water to Lyttelton’s port. The<br />

definitive date of Diamond <strong>Harbour</strong>’s<br />

jetty construction is not<br />

documented, but evidence from<br />

Stoddart’s journal points to its<br />

existence by at least 1862. There<br />

are indications its creation could<br />

be attributed to a ‘Mr Grubb’,<br />

quite possibly John Grubb, the<br />

respected boat and wharf builder<br />

from Lyttelton.<br />

Stoddart relinquished a significant<br />

portion of his Diamond<br />

<strong>Harbour</strong> land to his mortgage<br />

holders in 1871. By 1874, the land<br />

was marked for subdivision,<br />

and Harvey Hawkins, a well<br />

known entrepreneur from Lyttelton,<br />

took possession in 1876.<br />

Hawkins constructed the notable<br />

Godley House on the headland,<br />

which gained popularity – or<br />

some might say notoriety – for<br />

its sociable events, with well-todo<br />

guests from Christchurch<br />

arriving on steam ferries for<br />

weekend pleasantries.<br />

Due to the increased<br />

popularity, a consistent ferry<br />

service was introduced from<br />

Lyttelton to Diamond <strong>Harbour</strong><br />

by September 1891. The SS John<br />

Anderson plied a regular ferry<br />

service bringing revellers to<br />

Harvey Hawkins’ Godley House<br />

and its pleasure gardens, with<br />

the Lyttelton Port facilities<br />

being upgraded to support this<br />

increased traffic.<br />

At this time, there was<br />

discussion about charging for<br />

the use of the Diamond <strong>Harbour</strong><br />

jetty, with complaints that<br />

passengers had been charged a<br />

6 shilling landing fee on Boxing<br />

Day. However, the Lyttelton<br />

<strong>Harbour</strong> Board decided against<br />

such ‘entrepreneurship’, and the<br />

use of the Diamond <strong>Harbour</strong><br />

jetty was declared free of charge<br />

to the public.<br />

Despite the entry fees to his<br />

increasingly popular social<br />

facilities, Hawkins encountered<br />

financial difficulties in the early<br />

1890s. He attempted to sustain<br />

himself by leasing the property<br />

for use as a hotel, pleasure<br />

gardens and a park, but these<br />

Diamond <strong>Harbour</strong>. Te Ūaka The Lyttelton Museum ref 6417.1<br />

https://www.teuaka.org.nz/online-collection/1009235<br />

efforts were unsuccessful. He<br />

eventually declared bankruptcy<br />

in 1894, and in 1897, the property<br />

reverted back to the Stoddart<br />

family. The impressionist painter<br />

Margaret Stoddart, daughter of<br />

Mark and Anna, lived there until<br />

1913, creating a number of her<br />

most famous works. Meanwhile,<br />

the day trip by steam ferry across<br />

to the Godley House environs<br />

remained popular with weekend<br />

visitors from around the harbour<br />

and beyond.<br />

A significant development occurred<br />

in 1913 when the Lyttelton<br />

Borough Council purchased<br />

140 hectares of land from the<br />

Stoddart Estate, incorporating<br />

Diamond <strong>Harbour</strong> as a suburb of<br />

Lyttelton. The resulting growth<br />

in water traffic led to the addition<br />

of an ‘L’ shaped extension to<br />

the jetty in 1915, and from this<br />

time on it became known as the<br />

Diamond <strong>Harbour</strong> Wharf.<br />

By 1926, the growing suburb<br />

of some 38 houses catered to<br />

tourists on the weekends for<br />

picnics, excursions and fishing<br />

parties, while the village’s<br />

professional residents and their<br />

children commuted daily to<br />

work and school via the steam<br />

ferry to Lyttelton port’s railway<br />

station and via locomotive to the<br />

city of Christchurch.<br />

In 1928, in response to ever increasing<br />

water traffic, a prohibition<br />

was placed on private boats<br />

mooring at the wharf, facilitating<br />

easier disembarkation for ferry<br />

passengers. Despite decades-long<br />

difficulties in procuring a<br />

reliable water supply, the village<br />

continued to grow through the<br />

thirties and beyond. It was from<br />

this time the Diamond <strong>Harbour</strong><br />

ferries – such as the Owaka,<br />

Moturata, Reo Moana, Manuka,<br />

and the Awhinanui, followed<br />

by Onawe and today’s Black<br />

Diamond – came to symbolise<br />

and love today.<br />

What’s On at the Lyttelton Club 328<br />

JUNE at the Lyttelton Club 328 was jam<br />

packed with events peaking with the Club’s<br />

150th Year Celebrations.<br />

“It was an amazing weekend here in<br />

celebration of 150 years of the Lyttelton<br />

Club. 150 years of being a part of this<br />

amazing and progressive community.<br />

The success of this weekend would not<br />

have happened without your support<br />

- our members. Thank you,” said the<br />

management team. “The Lyttelton Club<br />

has seen enormous changes over the<br />

last 150 years, and we are under no<br />

illusion that the years ahead will be<br />

equally challenging. In looking back, it<br />

is impossible not to be impressed by the<br />

level of dedication our Club members<br />

have given to the Lyttelton Club. To have<br />

survived the challenges so far, there has<br />

been strong loyalty amongst our members<br />

and support not only from the Lyttelton<br />

area but Sumner, Heathcote, and beyond.”<br />

<strong>July</strong> is also shaping up to be another<br />

exciting month of events.<br />

“Members asked for more LIVE<br />

screenings of international sporting events<br />

to enjoy in the sports hall. We listened, and<br />

were excited to kick off this request with<br />

the UFC 290 Championship Challenge last<br />

Sunday.”<br />

Queen and BeeGees fans - here’s one for<br />

you. An afternoon of live music on Sunday<br />

23rd <strong>July</strong>, 2pm, presented<br />

by Madsen Promotions.<br />

“We are SUPER<br />

EXCITED and so privileged<br />

to be able to bring this<br />

show to the Lyttelton Club.”<br />

In record sell out<br />

performances up and down<br />

the country, Paul Madsen<br />

and the team will deliver<br />

the silver bullet hits from<br />

these two iconic bands;<br />

Bohemian Rhapsody, Crazy<br />

Little Thing Called Love,<br />

Night Fever, Islands in<br />

the Stream; plus, so much<br />

more.<br />

Paul<br />

Madsen<br />

“This is not an event you’ll want to miss<br />

out on! It is going to be EPIC!”<br />

To be close to the band,<br />

tickets are now available to<br />

access the top bar and lower<br />

lounge areas of the Club during<br />

the performance. Limited<br />

tickets available. Talk to the bar<br />

team; or buy your ticket online<br />

at EventFinda.<br />

Winding up the month on<br />

Saturday 29th <strong>July</strong> sees the<br />

return of the DnD Trio (Gigi,<br />

Jojo & Mark). These guys are<br />

regulars at the Club and pack<br />

the dance floor with their<br />

collection of pop rock covers.<br />

Make a night of it and book in<br />

for dinner.<br />

The Club restaurant offers a delicious<br />

selection of light meals that includes Chef<br />

Steve’s signature Seafood Chowder, as well<br />

as his iconic Ploughman’s Platters.<br />

Mains are very competitively priced<br />

ranging $16.50 for ocean Fresh Mussels in<br />

the shell, steamed in white wine and garlic<br />

and served with garlic bread, through to $26<br />

choice of Mushroom Sauce or Garlic Butter.<br />

And for kiddies’ rumbling tums, a<br />

20 <strong>Bay</strong> <strong>Harbour</strong> News Wednesday <strong>July</strong> <strong>12</strong> <strong>2023</strong><br />

Go-anywhere goliath loaded with luxury<br />

IF A NEW Toyota Land Cruiser is<br />

on your wish list but you have a few<br />

extra notes in the bank, the Lexus<br />

LX 500d is the next best option.<br />

It’s a Land Cruiser on steroids in<br />

terms of specification and luxury<br />

and it sits in a part of the market<br />

that has little competition in terms<br />

of prestige and ability than, say,<br />

Range Rover.<br />

What’s more it’s an easy decision<br />

to make if you have decided on<br />

Lexus, there are just two models<br />

– F-Sport and Limited both are<br />

priced at $175,900.<br />

As its nomenclature suggests<br />

the F-Sport has design elements<br />

that are a little on the sporty side<br />

– black mesh grille, unique front<br />

and rear bumpers, while inside<br />

there are aluminium centre console<br />

panels and coloured seat coverings.<br />

The Limited has a chrome slatted<br />

grille, woodgrain shift panel,<br />

wood-rimmed steering wheel and<br />

full black leather.<br />

The only other real difference<br />

lies with the suspension, the<br />

F-Sport gets what Lexus describe<br />

as performance dampers. In effect,<br />

the ride is just marginally firmer,<br />

although I certainly couldn’t detect<br />

much difference between the<br />

standard settings and those fitted to<br />

the F-Sport; I climbed out of it and<br />

stepped straight into the Limited,<br />

there was no immediate feeling of<br />

change.<br />

Of course, if you were to explore<br />

all of the driveline settings and<br />

functions that make the Land<br />

Cruiser/LX 500d so capable, the<br />

chassis and suspension settings<br />

would then come into play.<br />

However, as capable as what it<br />

is off-road, you don’t see too many<br />

Lexus models charging through<br />

the bush or high country tracks, it<br />

is far more of a civilised seven-seat<br />

family wagon that will lend itself to<br />

any challenge, especially in terms<br />

of towing, it is rated with a 3500kg<br />

figure. If towing a horse float or<br />

boat for your recreational pursuits is<br />

what you require, then the Lexus in<br />

this form is the vehicle for you. It is a<br />

true sport utility vehicle with luxury<br />

and quality elements that are true to<br />

the Lexus ethos. For the children in<br />

the second row of seats, each can be<br />

entertained by their own personal<br />

screens that are fixed to the rear of<br />

the front seat head rests.<br />

From a mechanical perspective,<br />

the underpinnings are engineered<br />

for life cross-country and, as I’ve<br />

alluded to, there are many drive<br />

modes that can be dialled in to best<br />

suit the terrain ahead. If you are<br />

heading on a sealed road journey<br />

to, say, Akaroa or Arthur’s Pass<br />

then the suspension and engine<br />

turning parameters can be selected<br />

to optimise engine performance<br />

and/or economy.<br />

Certainly, in terms of that<br />

hill journey the F-Sport model<br />

wouldn’t lean as much through<br />

the bends, but on my evaluation<br />

trip through the Malvern Hills I<br />

can report the Limited model was<br />

equally adept, and certainly there<br />

was never a point where I thought<br />

the handling was less than perfect.<br />

Lexus has indicated that the LX<br />

500d rides on the biggest wheels<br />

LUXURY: The Lexus LX500d is filled with specification.<br />

LEXUS LX500D LIMITED: Huge sport utility vehicle at 5.1m.<br />

it has ever manufactured into a<br />

model. At 22in and measuring 265<br />

x 50 they have a wide footprint<br />

meaning there is a lot of rubber<br />

meeting the surface, which<br />

provides a feeling of stability<br />

and control; steerage is relatively<br />

precise, and even thought the LX<br />

500d weighs in rather tubby at<br />

almost 2700kg it doesn’t feel bulky,<br />

rather it feels somewhat agile given<br />

its size (5.1m).<br />

I also ventured onto a short<br />

former forestry track near Hororata<br />

and can report that even over<br />

undulations the feeling of control<br />

underneath is paramount, the<br />

suspension simply cocoons the<br />

occupants and all occupants are<br />

treated to comfort levels that we<br />

have always been able to relate to<br />

with Lexus.<br />

Under the bonnet sits a new<br />

V6 diesel engine that also comes<br />

courtesy of Toyota’s Land Cruiser.<br />

The best way it can be described is it<br />

is much the same design as the old<br />

V8 that powered previous generation<br />

models, but with two cylinders<br />

fewer. It does get the benefit of a<br />

twin turbocharging system which<br />

provides power outputs greater<br />

than previously, it is rated at 227kW<br />

and a stunning 700Nm. Add in the<br />

coupling to a 10-speed automatic<br />

transmission, the relay of power to<br />

each corner is seamless and constant,<br />

there’s never a point when accelerator<br />

input isn’t met.<br />

It’s a quiet, fuss-free engine that<br />

is amazingly honest, it has a lot<br />

of work to do, constantly pushing<br />

• Price – Lexus LX 500d<br />

Limited, $175,900<br />

• Dimensions – Length,<br />

5100mm; width,<br />

1990mm; height,<br />

1895mm<br />

• Configuration – V6,<br />

four-wheel-drive,<br />

3346cc, 227kW, 700Nm,<br />

10-speed automatic<br />

• Performance –<br />

0-100km/h, 8sec<br />

• Fuel usage – 10.2/100km<br />

nearly 3-tonne is a challenge, but<br />

it is willing and doesn’t work hard,<br />

which has a major bearing on how<br />

much fuel it uses to get about its<br />

business.<br />

I was surprised. I didn’t think<br />

I would come close to Lexus’<br />

10.2-litre per 100km combined<br />

cycle average claim, but when I<br />

took the evaluation car back to the<br />

dealership an 11.8l/100km was<br />

showing on the readout. That along<br />

with 7l/100km instantaneous usage<br />

on a 100km/h highway cruise<br />

(engine speed 1400rpm) means<br />

fuel thrift is impressive.<br />

On the subject of figures, the<br />

LX 500d is also rather swift, it will<br />

power to 100km/h from a standstill<br />

in 8sec and will lunge through a<br />

highway overtake in 5.6sec.<br />

After a fortnight with the two<br />

LX variants I quickly became very<br />

familiar with the concept, that<br />

on top of a drive mid-year in the<br />

Land Cruiser 300 GR. There’s no<br />

question where Toyota and Lexus<br />

pitch these models. Each came with<br />

a towbar, and although I only used<br />

the latter to tow a light trailer and<br />

recycling materials, they have been<br />

designed for a serious role in terms<br />

of transport. Each will go anywhere<br />

and will take that off-road caravan<br />

into some equally gnarly places<br />

that make up New Zealand’s great<br />

outdoors.<br />

However, if you want the Lexus<br />

just to be comfortable with for<br />

everyday transport it’s comforting<br />

to know it, too, will gently ease<br />

you in and out of a tricky situation<br />

with great vision and good<br />

manoeuvrability given its size.<br />

What’s more, it’s easy to drive<br />

and relate to, you don’t need<br />

any special techniques – just an<br />

understanding of its bulk and<br />

complex drive systems should<br />

you find yourself with some loose<br />

surface conditions ahead.<br />

Most of all, though, the LX<br />

500d is chock full of the luxury<br />

ingredients you get with any<br />

model from the Lexus stable,<br />

that’s something the company has<br />

classed as a major manufacturing<br />

ingredient in all of its models. I<br />

was reluctant to take the evaluation<br />

cars back to the dealership, both<br />

variants really grew on me, I simply<br />

enjoyed the driving experience.<br />

Which one would I buy?<br />

The F-Sport, knowing those<br />

performance dampers are sitting<br />

underneath are just one more<br />

reason to feel secure on the road.<br />

HOME SUMNER OFFICE | 2024<br />

Our vision, from the very beginning, is to be the most relatable HOME specialists in our coastal communities. Our<br />

journey began with the little red cottage in the heart of Redcliffs Village and now looking forward to 2024 we are<br />

opening our new offices located in Sumner and Lyttelton. We are looking for likeminded people to join our team<br />

that have the same passion for selling real estate in our coastal communities.<br />

Our core focus is listing and selling HOMES from Waimairi Beach to Southshore, Heathcote Valley to Taylors Mistake<br />

and Lyttelton to Akaroa. We operate with complete transparency, delivering the most honest and straightforward<br />

real estate experience on offer. Ensuring we not only get a premium price for our clients but that they are part of<br />

the entire process is a main objective.<br />

We offer a genuine boutique brand for any individual looking to thrive under the guidance of agents with a<br />

combined 25 years of experience in the industry. Additionally, we have a full support team of powerhouse<br />

administrators, in-house social media and management.<br />

If you are interested in becoming part of the HOME team contact Eddie Spry - 021 156 5884 today for further<br />

information.<br />

45 OXFORD STREET | LYTTELTON<br />

DEADLINE: <strong>12</strong>PM, 18 JULY <strong>2023</strong><br />

OFFERS OVER $499,000<br />

(UNLESS SOLD PRIOR)<br />

Here's your chance to own a rarely available, two bedroom<br />

HOME with harbour views in the very heart of Lyttelton!<br />

What a great opportunity to invest or to live and add value<br />

over time.<br />

The classic styling of this charming cottage not only gives<br />

you an instant smile upon first impression, but stepping<br />

inside it offers a spacious kitchen/dining with separate living<br />

room, two heat pumps, a combined tiled bathroom and<br />

laundry. The rear deck offers up stunning harbour views, no<br />

matter what time of day, and steps down into a private<br />

outdoor area make for the perfect entertainment space.<br />

Enjoy all that this port town and the surrounding bays have<br />

to offer, with a leisurely 2min stroll from your front door to<br />

London St where all your favourite cafes, eateries and bars<br />

are located. It's almost too convenient just to cross the road<br />

for a dip in the Norman Kirk Memorial Pool, not to mention<br />

the popular Bridle Path track only 10mins walk away or local<br />

bands down at the Wunderbar most weekends!<br />

This HOME speaks for itself with location, lifestyle and value<br />

all wrapped up in one 208m2 (more or less) easy care section<br />

that will hold the same appeal for decades to come.<br />

This is not an everyday opportunity, so don't hesitate to<br />

contact Khuzwane or Eddie from HOME Christchurch to stake<br />

your claim on this HOME today!<br />
