Howick and Pakuranga Times : Howick and Pakuranga Times Monday June 23 2014
www.times.co.nz Howick and Pakuranga Times, Monday, June 23, 2014 — 11 How would you like to be in John Smith’s position? He never misses his work-out three nights a week at the local gym. Every Saturday evening he, wife Jane, and the family take a short walk to one of the dozen interna- tional restaurants nearby to sample an abundant range of cuisines from around the world. During the week Jane enjoys weekly pampering in her neighbour- hood beauty spa then a catch-up with the girls over lunch and her favourite coffee brew. John and his family have only to travel five minutes for the weekly shopping while the decile 10 school that the junior Smiths attend is just a 15-minute walk. Are you wondering how John can have all this without having to pay the $1,000,000 plus often demanded in central Auckland suburbs? Easy! John has opted for a home in Flat Bush, one of the largest and fastest growing new towns in the country. And he hasn’t sacrificed work, social or family convenience in any way. After all, Flat Bush is close to every- thing including employment centres such as East Tamaki and Manukau CBD, motorway access when head- ing out of town, several top retail precincts, and the upcoming and exciting 19-hectare Ormiston Town Centre, close to Barry Curtis Park. By now, anyone champing at the bit for some of the same will be thrilled to hear about a stunning new development, The Reserve, offer- ing all these lifestyle amenities plus the benefit of a residents’ historical native forest in the backyard! Perfectly named, The Reserve will occupy the corner of Murphys and Flat Bush School Rds and has been designed by award-winning architect Paul Brown. On completion, this impressive, fenced and security-gated develop- ment will feature 65 four-bedroom homes on two levels with secure basement twin garages and a private terrace. Stylish and contemporary, The Reserve is all about a green, safe and social way of life and although the mood is decidedly contemporary, the development has been largely influenced by traditional terraced housing with each home’s front door opening straight onto the “living lane”, a landscaped pedestrian-only access way leading to the keypad- secured front gate. With its entirely “car free” outdoor space giving all residents, young and old, the freedom to walk freely on any inch of the property without a single safety concern regarding vehicle traffic, The Reserve is ideal for family living. And it has been named for the preservation and restoration of sev- eral thousand years of New Zealand native forest heritage it will support. Just imagine being the proud part owner of 8000 square metres of this striking remnant of Murphy’s Forest where trees such as matai, puriri and karaka can be found amongst walkways opening on to well-placed clearings where families can rest or play together? Yes this is a “slice of heaven” lifestyle. Earthworks have already begun and buyers can expect to receive the keys to their amazing new homes during 2015. All materials are of superior qual- ity, holding true to the idea of build- ing high-quality family homes in an idyllic surrounding. The developer sees The Reserve as adding to the family and child-friendly distinctiveness of the Flat Bush area which has enjoyed a renaissance in recent years. In fact, it is a great opportunity for a fresh start in a fast- growing, new community. Indeed, Flat Bush is a vibrant, wholesome area that has forged a reputation for providing safe, conve- nient and quality living. And for those who opt for The Reserve’s fabulous lifestyle, there will always be plenty to do without having to travel far from home. In fact, with a home at The Reserve, you may not want to leave at all. Superb lifestyle – ‘reserved’ just for you!
