Hunterville is a village on SH1 which has everything you want for a rural lifestyle. The owners of this family home on an elevated site above the village are reluctantly leaving a village which has offered them friendship, support and a lifestyle, which, can be as quiet or as busy as you want to be. Hunterville has a great Red Cross driver service, St John ambulance and fire brigade and a range of interest organisations. The small shopping centre offers day-to-day requirements and if you need more, Marton is only 15 minutes away. Prescriptions are delivered to the local store, and there is a bank agency at another shop. That is village life, where everyone knows and helps everyone else. The primary school has a great reputation, drawing from a wide catchment and there is a bus service for secondary students. So a family will be well catered for in this lovely home. Built in the 1960s, with the generosity of storage and solidness of that era, the home was completely revamped seven years ago. A conservatory has increased the living space of the L-shaped lounge-dining room. It not only captures all day sun, but from the spa, or seating space also captures views of the village and surrounding hills. The magical views continue from every window in the lounge. The new kitchen has brightly coloured cupboards and stainless steel appliances which are included in the chattels. A large ensuite bathroom and walk-in wardrobe are included in the master bedroom from which bi-fold doors access the terrace and capture the views. Two more generous double bedrooms and a large office (or single bedroom) complete the accommodation. The main bathroom has a full sized bath and shower and there is a separate toilet. The laundry is an additional room with space for hobbies or a large freezer. A garage for two cars with more storage completes the house. Diesel central heating ensures the house is warm, even when the weather is not. This home is reached by a winding concrete drive which ensures complete privacy, although it is only two minutes from SH1. It is set in a landscaped, low maintenance garden where rhododendrons and other shrubs give plenty of colour. There is a view of the peak of Mr Ruapehu from the top of the garden on a clear day. Sheds adjacent to the house could be used for shearing sheep or alpacas or as a hobby space with a separate garage-workshop giving even more space. Nearly three hectares of land is included in the package and a further three and half hectares is also available for purchase as a separate block. This is presently leased but would provide space for horses, a few cattle or sheep. This property is being marketed by Teresa Cunningham of Property Brokers, Marton. Teresa can be contacted on 06 327 0070 or 027 289 2329 Book sale raises funds for literacy The generosity of the Feilding community enabled Literacy Feilding to raise funds by selling donated books. Last Friday and Saturday the Community House seminar room was full of 70 banana boxes filled with a wide range of donated titles. Although the strong wind on Friday denied the opportunity to place advertising signs on the foot path, a large number of people found their way to the sale. Feilding Literacy thanks all those who donated, collected and helped sort the books and donated items to be raffled. There was one sour note to the fundraiser, a box of DVDs which were given for sale, were stolen on Friday morning. It is very sad to think someone would stoop so low and take items from a community group which provides a free service to Feilding, said Ruth Dalzell. Perhaps the lady who took them would like to drop in and pay for them so her donation can be added to the amount raised by the book sale! Literacy Feilding provides a range of learning opportunities to adults who wish to extend their knowledge in order to help their children with home- work, fill in forms, create a CV, learn the road code and obtain their learner driver licence. Basic com- puter lessons and study support are also offered. Literacy Feilding tutors are qualified to assist and encourage learners to reach their learning goals. The book sale will be repeated in November next year.
