Adventure park works cause traffic problems – residents CAITLIN MILES

Construction on the Christchurch Adventure Park is already causing problems for residents living near it as traffic starts to build up. Residents say heavy work vehicles going to the development are causing traffic to clog up along Cashmere Rd, making it hard to access from side streets. They want added to the city council draft annual plan funding for traffic signals, at the Hoon Hay, Cashmere and Worsleys


Rds intersections to help “break up the traffic�. Construction on the 358ha park located between Dyers Pass, Worsleys and Summit Rds, started last month. When completed, it will have more than 100km of downhill mountain bike routes, a 1.8km chairlift, 2km of zip lines, rock climbing, and a cafe. Stage one is expected to be finished by December. But already traffic going to the park is clogging up the Cashmere Rd, with residents struggling to get out of side

PROBLEM: Residents say the traffic congestion along Cashmere Rd is due to construction of the Christchurch Adventure Park.

streets onto the main road – a problem residents predicted. Cashmere Residents’ Association chairman and SpreydonHeathcote Community Board member Rik Tindall said traffic concerns were raised with the city council. He said traffic will only become worse after the park official opens. However, city councillor Tim Scandrett (above) said the

park was not to blame and new residential developments in Halswell, Kennedy’s Bush and Westmoreland were responsible. But he supported the installation of traffic signals. Cracroft Residents’ Association secretary Rick Bolch said traffic signals should be installed to cater for the park users. He said Westmorland Residents’ Associaiton had also indicated support for this option. “There are a lot of developments happening in the area, so more people are using road around the base of the hills,

something needs to be done,� said Cr Scandrett said. The Cashmere Residents’ Association is holding a public meeting on April 26 at 7.30pm at the Cashmere Presbyterian Church on MacMillan Ave to discuss the noise, traffic and safety issues facing residents before writing to the city council.

Roadworks force charity to move Customers struggle to access store CAITLIN MILES

A charity that has spent the last 42 years in Woolston will be shifting because roadworks have crippled it financially. Purple Patch Handcrafts said it can no longer afford to pay the rent at their 398 Ferry Rd address. Customer have been put off because there is no parking due to roadworks. It will move to 243 Colombo St next month. The not-for-profit organisation run by volunteers distributes crafts, such as baby clothes, to those in need and donates money to groups like Plunket and Cholmondeley Children’s Centre. Purple Patch vice president and secretary Anita Paterson (right) said communication from Stronger Christchurch Infrastructure Rebuild Team has been steady

MOVING: Purple Patch no longer have roadworks surrounding it but the financial hit the charity took from being surrounded by cones for nearly five months means it has to move.

and they understood the roadworks need to be carried out but they have come at a cost. “The roadworks have interrupted our trading to the extent we have had to look for other premises. Our customers don’t want to try and find a park and then have to walk a long way just to pop in,” Mrs Paterson said. The roadworks started outside the Ferry Rd address in December last year and wrapped up last month. Current



Manning Pl beside the store was closed and road cones out the front greatly restricted parking for customers. Southern View previously reported in March that Madame Butterfly’s Vintage Style Boutique, on the corner of Ferry Rd and Smith St had also taken a financial hit from ongoing roadworks outside its business making it harder to access the shop. The charity store will share the Colombo St address with another business, and while the

space is smaller Mrs Paterson is staying positive about the move and is thankful for having understandable customers. “Our regulars have been very supportive of the move and some have said it’s closer to them so they’re happy about it too. We hope that this more central location will mean more people come in and see what we do,” Mrs Paterson said. Purple Patch Handcraft will close at its current address on April 28 and open on Colombo St on May 2.

ANZAC DAY ROADS There will be 20 roads around the city closed on Anzac Day. Halswell Rd (State Highway 75) from Lillian St to Nicholls Rd will be closed on Monday, April 25 from 8-10.30am. For a full list of road closures go to the city council website. POPLAR TREE REMOVAL A dying poplar tree in Beckenham Park will be removed and landscaping will be done between two ponds in an attempt to naturalise the park. The chinese poplar tree is being removed due its deteriorating condition and health and safety risk it poses if it is damaged and someone gets injured.. CHANGES TO CYCLEWAY The city council has made changes to the Rapanui Shagrock Cycleway after receiving complaints from business owners who say it would negatively impact Linwood Village. The original plan was to cut off Worcester St to through traffic at England St. The proposed idea includes a neighbourhood greenway from England St, along Buccleugh St, Ollivers Rd, Wellington St, Clive St and Marlborough St. The design also includes the cycleway crossing Aldwins Rd at a new signalled crossing, where vehicles would give way to cyclists, before passing through Linwood Park.

Flame files Community vital to functioning of school Remember the Hillmorton High School deputy principal Eleanor Sim discusses how important it is to have the community support and involved in school culture to see success in the students. Do you agree? Send your thoughts to caitlin. miles@starmedia.kiwi. Whānaungatanga (a caring community) is one of the values at Hillmorton High School. This value has been very evident recently as we saw our dragon boaters performing a haka in support of another New Zealand team at the world championships and, as staff and students supported “Shave for a Cure”. Schools simply cannot do this business of education alone. You may have heard the line “ It takes a village to raise a child”. Schools are more effective

SOAP BOX and caring places, when they are an integral and positive entity in their community. They too, are richer for their community being involved in their life. Improved social and academic outcomes are natural consequences. As our Pasifika students have prepared for their performance at the annual Polyfest, members of our community have come to support and work with our young people. Being there, sharing culture, helping, teaching, keeping a watchful eye, giving of their time and wisdom has meant so much and our students have gained so much from the community

coming into the school. Our new playground, the school community garden and our kitchen garden have taken shape over a couple of years. These again, have been collaborative projects where students, staff, parents and caregivers have come together working with a common goal. The success thereof has also been dependent on the involvement of the wider community – the businesses and funding organisations who have supported such initiatives. All are the beneficiaries. As schools move towards the next round of board of trustees elections that will occur in May, we acknowledge the tireless work of those in our communities who work as trustees. This too is vital work and schools need the support of the willing and able. Anthropologist Margaret Mead wrote: “Never doubt that a group of thoughtful, committed people can change the world”. We thank our community.


With mornings getting colder and winter in the air, it might be a good time to remind people about the metre/heater rule. This is a simple little recommendation invented a few years back that gives us all a means of reducing the risk of fireplaces, heaters and even stoves setting fire to the houses they are in. The metre/heater rule requires nothing combustible being placed closer than a metre from an operating heater or fireplace. This includes clothing being dried, magazines and newspapers and most importantly human beings and pets. On the question of most efficient home heating we generally recommend heat pumps because of their relative low cost to run and more importantly, from our perspective, the fact

they have rarely caused houses to catch fire. This doesn’t mean we dismiss gas fires (those flued to the outside) or convection or radiant electric heaters. But these need to be operated strictly to the metre/heater rule above. Most people would have been aware of the young person injured after falling in the red danger zone of the cliffs at Sumner last Sunday morning. He ended up in ambulance and then hospital care.  But spare a thought for the members of Sumner Fire Brigade and the ambulance staff who attended.  They had to put themselves in potential danger to recover this person.  They wouldn’t have thought twice.  It’s what people do.  Especially it’s what emergency services people do. But it should never have been necessary.  Unfortunately common sense seems to be less common daily. M FRO

Many may face cold winter Insurance battles hold up home assessments, upgrades FRASER WALKER-PEARCE

People still stuck in insurance battles from the February 2011, earthquake say they cannot get upgrades to keep their homes warm this winter. The city council said about half of all customers of its Build Back Smarter programme, about 400, say they cannot act on recommendations to get their houses warmer because they are still negotiating with their insurer. The programme gives free housing assessment of what is needed to warm the house, including putting in heat pumps, curtains, insulation and draft stops. The city council’s sustainability adviser Tony Moore said during a customer feedback survey, it was found that the main reason given for not acting on the assessment was insurance battles. City councillor Glenn Livingstone (right) said he was appalled to find out half of people seeking help could be prevented from warming their homes. He said if a decision was still pending on their house, no


HAVE YOUR SAY EVENTS Public consultation is now open on the city council’s draft Annual Plan 2016-17 and Amended Long Term Plan 2015-2025.

New Zealand spokeswoman said insurers will act reasonably to ensure people are in warm houses coming into the winter months and people should talk to their insurer directly.

time frames, add extra costs or create compliance issues. Cr Livingstone said: “If 800 people have been assessed and half are unable to go ahead with renovations because of an insurance hold up, are they saying that half of those people are wrong? Is it reasonable that they’re still waiting?” he said.

BUS SHELTERS New bus shelters will be built at 11 Whiteleigh Ave and outside 17, 19, 21 and 22 Halswell Rd. There are currently bus stops at both of these stops and bus shelters are being put in place due to the high amount of users currently using the stops. Installing the shelters is expected to cost $22,500, no objections to the shelters were made. Construction will begin in the next few months.

Helen Mantell

Focused on the welfare of Helen Mantell is the principal of the Southern Health School in Tuam St, which provides education for students with long-term mental and physical health issues. Fraser Walker-Pearce talks to her about the birth of health schools, managing an ever-changing roll, and the school’s greatest success story Hi Helen, thanks for having a chat with me. What makes your job so special? For me the job is so special because it’s really about finding the kids that are missing out on their education because they’re unwell. If we find those students that have been out of school for a while and they’re unwell, if we can make a difference to them in terms of their education while they’re sick, then that’s what makes it really worthwhile. What schools did you go to? I went to Redcliffs Primary School, and Linwood High School in those days, now Linwood College. What about your own school experience? Was there any teacher who stood out? I guess I had a mathematics teacher called Mr McMeekin. I had him for a few years, and he was reasonably influential in

pushing me to become a maths teacher. He was probably a favourite teacher of mine, he was only in his first couple years of teaching, so he was early in his career, and his passion for the subject made it I think. How long have you been involved with the school? I’ve been at the school since 2004, and I’ve been the principal since 2011. What does your family think about your position, they must be proud? Yes. They are pretty proud. They’re all in Christchurch, well my immediate family anyway. I taught at Rangi Ruru for a number of years before I came here as a mathematics teacher and was looking for the next step in my career. What do you do outside of work? I love spending time with my family. And if I’m not doing that

I like walking in the Port Hills. That’s great. What would you say is the school’s greatest success story? One girl comes to mind straight away here. She was with us for quite a period of time, most students are generally with us for between 14 and 15 weeks, but this student was with us for most of the year. She was working towards gaining NCEA level 2, and managed to achieve that by the end of the year. She went back to her school for the final year and has since gone on to university. I think she is actually studying medicine, which is amazing when you think about what she would’ve been managing during that time. Wow, a huge turn around. Have there been some quite sad stories as well? Oh absolutely. I mean there are some situations where if we’re talking about a physicallyill student, sometimes they don’t make it. That’s an incredibly sad time. Sometimes the barriers of the student’s illness are too great to make any progress on their education as well. When did health schools start arriving in NZ?

All welcome! enjoy some Dutch hospitAlity!

In their current format, they were rolled out in 2000. Before that they were just extensions or parts of hospitals. From the get go there has been three individual schools across the country. But the Southern Health School is the only one in the South Island. What are you hoping to achieve this year? Along those lines I’m hoping to achieve a half marathon, through a combination of walking and running. And I guess I’d want to make sure the kids that are out of school because of an

illness continue their education, that’s why I keep coming to work. The teachers must be kept pretty busy at the health school? We work all over the place really. They teach students who are unwell for an extended period of time, and they might teach them at school, in a hospital or even at their homes. We also work in healthfunded facilities like The Princess Margaret Hospital in their mental health wards. I guess the teachers wouldn’t know what to expect when they turn up for work each day.

unwell students That’s right (laughs). For teachers it’s very exciting and you can think you have a day planned out, but things can change quickly like the students may be unwell or unable to come to a lesson or something – they have to be flexible. What illnesses does the health school help with? So we work with patients that are struggling with physical and mental health conditions. For us to come in, they have to be off for a long period. And can anyone get in, or do they have to be selected? It’s an application process and anyone can refer someone to us. Generally it’s the parents, schools, and health professionals that put in applications for students, and the only requirement is a sign off from a health professional. How many students do you help every year? If I look across the South Island at the moment we have about 170 students on our roll. That number varies greatly though – we can have up to 300 students at any one time. We generally see about

SPARE TIME: Helen Mantell enjoys walking in the Port Hills in her time away from the Southern Health School.

700 students over a year. And so from that everchanging roll, what do the students see it as? Our other purpose is to support a transition back to school. We call ourselves ‘a station on their journey’. They come to us while they’re unwell, then we work hard in partnership with them to get them back into schooling life.

While they’re at the health school, are they solely enrolled there? No, no. They’re still enrolled in their previous school, sort of like a dual roll. When they get back we always try to follow what they’re doing, but if they can’t go back to school, we can take over their programme if they need help long term. How big is the gap when

Mon 18 - Fri 22 April 2.30pm - 6pm

they do return to their other school? We try and make sure that they’re at if not above where their peers are at. Our teachers work one-on-one and in small groups with students, so it’s not like a traditional big class. That can be very beneficial for them. There must be a huge range of illnesses you see? Yes absolutely. Unfortunately the two most common illnesses we see are cancer and mental health conditions. Generally the students with mental health issues have anxiety and depression, but there are some we see that are on the more extreme end of that scale. That’s interesting. Do you think that has something to do with the stress from the earthquakes? Whether it’s a direct result I don’t know, but when you think about the effect on families the quakes have had, it was huge. Families were moving house, jobs, schools, so it may have tipped them over the edge in terms of handling school as well as an illness.

Rural life – getting down to business

Tuesday April 12 2016


Sharing my life with a stubbywearing, gumboot thrashing, genuine country man, it was only natural we tune in to the new season of Rural New Zealand. The picturesque setting overlooking Banks Peninsula was a great backdrop to meet new presenter, Gordon Findlater, the man who promised to take us from Prebbleton to Geraldine and back. On the flat of South Canterbury, the educational value offered by Geraldine High School’s Primary Industry Academy was highlighted well. The enthusiasm of the next-generation of farming folk an encouraging sight to see. As Gordon (right) tried – and failed – to tie off a wire fence alongside the students, however, some dismissive noises came from the seat beside me. While the city slickers might find humour in this part of the programme, Gordon will need to toughen up if he is going to earn any points with the farmers. The stories that followed provided snapshots of rural life, from up-and-coming entrepreneurs to those making a liveli-

hood out of living off the land. By exploring the different aspects of what it means to live a rural lifestyle, viewers are shown the diversity offered beyond the city limits. In that respect, Rural New Zealand ticks a few boxes for us. “That’s the beauty of farming in New Zealand – it’s an open book, no one keeps their cards to their chest,” explains the accredited armchair critic. “Everyone wants to hear of people doing well for themselves as it’s a

hard way of life.” Our favourite part of the show was the speed shearing competition in Geraldine. In classic ‘country comes to town’ style, the sheep had centre stage in the Village Inn’s backyard, and the community were there to support the shearers and experience what is quite often too far from their own doorstep. As well as the pros, we heard from those beginning their quest for the sharpest shears, once again presenting the future of the vastly varied rural industry in good form. Farmers will appreciate seeing the successes of like-minded souls on Rural New Zealand,

New owner for Woolston auto workshop


ne of Woolston’s most highprofile businesses is now under new management. Originally from Dunedin Craig Patterson has returned south, after 6 years in palmerston North, Craig took over the Woolston Auto Surgery on November 1, 2015, bringing with him 30 years’ experience in the automotive servicing industry. This has included managing service station workshops, and owning and operating businesses such as Mag & Turbo and Pit Stop. Craig came to Christchurch from Palmerston North to be closer to family and was delighted to have the opportunity to take on this well set-up business. The workshop is equipped with five hoists and stateof-the-art computerised scanning equipment. Craig and his team of three other qualified mechanics provide full mechanical repairs and servicing for all makes and models of vehicle, and his advice is to have your vehicle serviced regularly. This will keep costs down, as minor issues can then be identified and

taken care of before they become a major and much more expensive job. And you don’t have to be inconvenienced while your car is in the workshop – Woolston Auto Surgey has courtesy cars available to keep you on the road. They also offer a range of free services: free tyre checks, free brake inspection and testing and free battery tests. A tow service is available for local breakdowns, or they can organise a tow truck for breakdowns further away. The supply and fitting of tyres is a key aspect of Woolston Auto Surgery’s operation, with quality tyres for all makes and models of vehicle, including 4WD, available at very competitive prices. Woolston Auto Surgery is located at 693 Ferry Road, in the heart of the Woolston shopping village – you can’t miss the distinctive, two-storey red building. Opening hours are Monday to Friday, 7.30am to 5.30pm. To book in for vehicle servicing, tyre fitting and wheel alignment or a WoF, phone 384-9092. Craig and his team are always happy to discuss your requirements and give friendly advice if needed.

Advanced denture and dental care in Halswell with Duchenne Dental.


For the team at Duchenne Dental Services in Halswell, business is all about giving patients the confidence to Eat, Talk and Smile. Duchenne prides itself on providing a professional and yet personal treatment using the latest in technology.



linical Dental Technician, Tristan Pattinson knows that well-fitting, natural-looking and secure dentures can transform the lives of his patients. “It can be a real challenge to get people who wear dentures into the dental chair and ask them to take out their dentures in front of me,” he explains. If they are prepared to take that step, then he and his team will do everything they can to help his patient achieve confidence in their smile. Duchenne Dental take their name from a French neurologist, Guillaume Duchenne, who determined that the most genuine smiles come from true happiness and use the muscles of the eyes as well as the mouth. Their goal is to provide a genuine Duchenne smile for every one of their patients. Like so many areas of modern life, dental technology is changing fast, and at Duchenne Dental Services, they too are moving into the digital

age, with advanced techniques and equipment to scan the mouth and jaw so that all their dentures are individually crafted to give the best possible fit. Digital 3-D printing is state-of-the-art in relation to denture technology, and Duchenne Dental is at the forefront of its use including the use of injection moulding techniques for the best comfort and functionality. As well as crafting new dentures, they also offer denture implants, relines and repairs, sports mouth guards and snoring solutions. Snoring and its effects are a real problem for many New Zealanders. Duchenne provides the Freedom™ sleep apnoea appliance and is designed as a comfortable way to minimise snoring ensuring a peaceful night for wearers and their partners. It is lightweight and practical for home use and travel so that sufferers can sleep on longhaul flights without embarrassment.

As part of the Halswell Dental Centre, Duchenne Dental patients benefit from a whole-team approach. This includes access to dentists and hygienists who can advise on the best way to take care of dentures, and remaining teeth. • To make a time and have a free personal consultation, with Tristan, ring the friendly team on (03) 322 9577 or visit www.duchenne.co.nz

Preheat the oven to 180C on bake. Grease and line the base of a 23cm spring-form cake tin with paper. In a large bowl place the first four ingredients and mix, giving it a good stir. Sift the next six ingredients into another bowl. Add the flour mix to the wet ingredients, alternating with the grated beetroot. Mix together lightly and place in the tin. Bake for 1 hour and 30 minutes or until a skewer comes out clean. Test this cake while it’s baking with a skewer or sharp knife — it can look cooked, but the middle may still be raw. Leave to cool in the tin and then remove to ice. Icing: Make a beetroot chocolate ganache by melting 125g dark chocolate and 1⁄2 cup juiced beetroot together. Heat gently, then pour over the cake.

Snack time perfect for experimenting with flavour


XPANDING your culinary horizons doesn’t have to be limited to dinnertime. In fact, snacks are a perfect chance to experiment with unfamiliar flavours, whether they are completely new or a variation on a treat you already enjoy. Exploring new flavours is a tasty and sensible way to ditch mindless snacking and bring mindful satisfaction back to more enjoyable snacking experiences. Cheese is one food category that lends plenty of opportunity to truly savour your snack food. These tips from The Laughing Cow and Chef Sarah Simmons of Birds & Bubbles in New York City show how Asiago, a uniquely flavoured artisan-inspired cheese,

(each with 2 grams of protein and 35 calories) to give this spread a nutty flavour punch. The cheese texture is smooth enough that you can use it to simply replace mayonnaise in traditional recipes.

can transform the taste of common snacks with its nutty, bold and savoury flavour profile.

A BLT (ASIAGO BACON LETTUCE TOMATO) Transform the classic BLT sandwich into a simple yet delicious snack. The small crisp inner leaves from a head of butter lettuce are a perfect “cup” for spreading creamy Asiago cheese, topping it with crispy bacon pieces and a slice of juicy tomato. This snack hits all of the important flavour profiles and texture contrasts with the nuttiness from the creamy cheese, saltiness from the crispy bacon, crunch from the bright lettuce and a touch of

acidity from the juicy tomato half. And, it’s as appealing on the eyes as it is on the palate (pictured).

REINVENTED ‘PIMENTO CHEESE’ This popular Southern US snack has been gaining attention recently as a delicious spread on crackers. Use wedges of The Laughing Cow Creamy Asiago

PINEAPPLE PECAN BITES Turn an old-fashioned party dish into a bite-sized snack perfect for enjoying on your own. Replacing the cream cheese traditionally used in this recipe with the natural nuttiness of creamy Asiago helps enhance the flavour of the pecans. The tanginess from the pepper and pineapple is a well-balanced match for the rich, bold and creamy cheese.

SMOKY DATE Satisfy your cravings with this three-ingredient snack. The sweetness of dried dates offers an amazing contrast in flavour and texture to smoked almonds while the nutty and bold flavours of The Laughing Cow Creamy Asiago cheese brings this unique pairing together for a bite-size snack you won’t be able to put down. Just spread cheese on the date, sprinkle with almonds as desired and snack away. ■ Find more savory snacking ideas at thelaughingcow.com. ■ Photos courtesy of Kristen Hess, Food stylist/photographer and author of The Artful Gourmet blog

Build your next home with Artisan Homes Your local registered Master Builder Home building is as much about understanding the landscape and the client as it is the plan and the materials. From our office in Rolleston, Canterbury our small company has built a huge range of homes that are distinctive, stylish, durable and cost-effective. From clever, compact homes to three bedroom townhouses to large scale, expansive country style homes, our work spans all types of house building. Since 2004 we have carefully built, among other things, a reputation for constructing high quality houses. An artisan is someone who is highly skilled in a particular expertise, a hands-on craftsman – someone who is passionate about the quality results they produce. With decades in the business the team at Artisian Homes have worked in all areas of residential construction. There are obvious differences between building a two-bedroom

home compared to a six bedroom one. Irrespective, our overall approach remains the same. While we have a sound reputation for carefully crafted home building we also are renowned for getting the right result no matter what the challenge. Building with difficult access, looming timelines or tight budgets is just a fact of life for us. All our tradespeople are qualified and registered or licensed. Our abilities to design and build a range of houses have increased over the years, as has our skill and overall capacity. While we don’t have the franchises of our larger competitors we do have their networks and buying power. Which means our clients receive the most costeffective results possible. At Artisan Homes, our passion is building homes for people who appreciate the work that goes into what will, ultimately, be a home they love to live in.

Hip pain: Do I have arthritis or T

could it be mainly my muscles?

he team at Physical Sense in Sydenham sees clients with a range of symptoms but many of their middle-aged and senior clients visit complaining of pain in one or both hips. Physiotherapist Ietje van Stolk suggests that a major part of the pain could be due to muscle pain rather than simply arthritis. “Even if an x-ray shows arthritis, the reason for the pain may be the muscles around the joint,” she explains. Alternatively, a back muscle could also be the cause, as shown in the image. Ietje recalls one case where an 89 year old client with severe arthritis who walked with a stick, told her, “I will end up in a wheelchair, I cannot put any weight through my right leg due to pain in my hip and buttock”. “Within 4 treatments, she was walking with her stick but without the severe pain,” says Ietje. “The arthritis was one of the factors that made her muscles spasm but the other was that older people move less and the flexed position the hip is in when we sit is particularly bad for the hip.” Ietje is happy with the fact that although the client was 89 and could have been “given up on” or told to live with the pain, she made a difference to her health and wellbeing. At Physical Sense, hands-on techniques (massage and triggerpoint deactivation techniques) are used to release the muscles. The client also gets a home exercise program

(the crosses are the areas of the muscle spasms, the red areas is where the pain is felt) a back Hip muscle that causes hip pain

designed to mobilize and stretch the hip, strengthen the important core muscles and increase general strength and balance. They teach a movement sequence that stretches the hip in all directions whilst the client is able to lie safely on their bed, perfect for older or less mobile clients. In many cases having the muscles released and being taught how to maintain it, is enough

to stay on top of the problem. If severe arthritis is the underlying cause, some maintenance therapy may be necessary, but that is often more affordable and, for older patients, better tolerated than surgery. In very few treatments the client will know if it is going to work for them or not, without financial commitment. Physical Sense Gym & Physio is located at 300 Colombo Street, Sydenham.

ove the ambience and charm of character homes, but could do without a time-consuming do-up job or sprawling gardens to control? The vendors of 130 Clyde Road have done the hard work of modernising this gracious property, creating an inviting and comfortable family home, so the lucky new owner can simply move in and enjoy. Offering three bedrooms plus a study, the home has an open-plan kitchen and dining area, in addition to a separate north-facing living room with a gorgeous bay window that invites you to curl up with a good book! Outside, the low-maintenance yet private garden features a sunny terrace and BBQ area for entertaining, and established, easy-care plantings. Secure double garaging also adds to the convenience. The two bathrooms in the home have both been recently updated, but there is still room for the new owner to add their own touches – the kitchen, while practical and very tidy, could be enhanced to add further value. Conveniently situated close to amenities such as supermarket, shops and schooling, 130 Clyde Rd is zoned for Christchurch Boys’ and Girls’ High Schools, Burnside High School, Cobham Intermediate and Fendalton Primary. All EQC repairs are complete, and the land offers the reassurance of TC2 rating. The vendor has committed to downsizing, so this home is very definitely for sale. Open Home: Sunday, April 17, 4pm to 4.30pm.

See you at the open home or for a private viewing contact Cameron Bailey of Harcourts Gold Papanui (Licensed Agent REAA 2008) on 352 6166 or mobile 027 555 7079.
