We lived in Europe for many years before returning to Christchurch. We built our spacious, modern house in 2006 in a quiet, private suburb, close to the city centre and local beaches, river and parks. There is an excellent bus service at the end of the street or bicycles and helmets are available to use. We enjoy living close to family and are active in our local church, Ceroc dancing and deaf community. We have 3 double or twin bedrooms, a large bathroom with spa bath , shower and toilet: and another toilet and hand basin. The open-plan, sunny living, dining and kitchen open onto a north-facing patio and sheltered garden. We have no children, only an old cat with lots of attitude and some chickens who supply us with eggs. I love cooking and entertaining and am always trying out new recipes courtesy of guests or Mr Google.
