speaking of homes OKK, there on the front page of the property section of the Press today is our first home. Altered a bit with a lovely verandah along the side just as I used to dream about. Slight satisfaction was the mention of the strawberry tree and the native trees we planted
I would go to the open home tomorrow but it would make me so sad. We sold 40 acres and said house in 1966 for 4,000 pounds. It was deemed to be too far from ChCh to travel to and fro from work. Now the 9 or so acres the house is on, I think, is valued at $555,000 and there are numerous houses on the rest of the land. Not too far to commute now.
We sold because himself's back was worn out with years of shearing and couldn't buy what we could afford because it wouldn't have been an economic unit. In other words we didn't want to borrow enough money There was a beautiful flat block of land on a large farm bought by Lands and Survey that we wanted to buy but no, that was all planted in trees. Never mind, what will be will be.

Aggie, What a beauty. For many years my first wife & I dreamed of living @ Loburn and used to drive to the domain on a Sunday. We explored the many little roads and also loved Cust area too. But life is where work was and that was Christchurch.

It looks lovely Aggie. Of course you should attend the open day if you can. My grizzle about sinks in the middle of the kitchen was a wasted effort as I didn't win Lotto!!

Hah! Us too. Our Lotto plans (the bones of it at least) are all made. We didn't win either. Again. Very strange thing - am beginning to think it must be rigged. OTOH, we don't always buy a ticket - that could be the reason...
Dr. L, that was North Loburn, last house before Journeys End. Quite idyllic then only 4 houses in the area. As himself says now that it is all cut up into blocks it is like a 'Chinese market garden.' Not being racist there either.
Aggie cant find it.. Is it available on line on the Press site ????can find yesterdays Press headlines news but not the property part..
Don't know Kai but one would think the property pages would be available on line. After all I guess there might be some K1 W1's wanting to come homeJust realised .... Bayleys.co.nz.ID#513303 Hope that helps.
Thanks Aggie,,, Love those areas,, so will pop away n see if I can have a Bo Peep now
