Feilding Herald : December 8th 2011
32 THURSDAY, DECEMBER 8, 2011 NEWS Ahigh fence keeps the secret that this brick home has great personality. A single garage and carport guard the front entrance but open the gate and the house reveals a different aspect. Step from the terrace into a huge lounge with a wood burner and heatpump for winter warmth, or open up the ranch sliders to the terrace and pool in the summer. Exposed beams are unobtrusive, but add to the character of this room decorated in neutral tones. Whether for the family that likes to play at home, or to invite friends and family to gather together, this house has plenty of room for everyone. Although there is an in-ground pool and a separate barbecue area, the 673m2 section is easily manageable. A recent upgrade of the kitchen makes this a smart convenient room and a dishwasher is provided. The dining space is suitable for a very large family dinner or would accommodate a six seater dining suite with space left over for a home office. The walk-in pantry has heaps of space to store the supplies. A separate laundry is tucked out of sight -- great when there is family washing on the go. Take the salads straight from the kitchen into the private barbecue area in the back garden, or open the ranch sliders to a sheltered nook - just perfect for a quiet read. Even when it is breezy, this is a shady oasis of calm. The bathroom has been modernised with a new shower plus a full-sized bath, and the three bedrooms are generously sized. The master bedroom has windows on three walls so there is all day light and warmth and space for a parent's retreat. A second heat pump in this wing ensures the bedrooms are cosy when the weather is not. Close to pre-schools, a primary and secondary school, this home is in an established area with nearby convenience stores, park and a friendly neighbourhood. Reasonably priced in line with rateable valuation, a family could be very happy here.

Summer Living The pool is sparkling, the barbecue is fired up, this house is all ready for Christmas entertaining says Bobbie Nicholls 4229227AA BIKE MANAWATU TRACK CYCLING Results November 29 Tuesday night attracted 35 riders. The programme was set around an Omnium made up of a warm up scratch race followed by one lap time trials, and ended with a long handicap race. An Omnium is a multi-discipline event with points awarded based on where the athlete came in each event, with one point to the winner and two to the second place getter. The winner of the Omnium has the least number of points. All races were raced in age grades. The audience was treated to the usual tight racing and the handi- cap races ensured results could not be predicted as limit markers did their best to protect their advantage and refused to be caught by the scratch riders. Race of the night was awarded to the under-17 Boys and Masters Men eight-lap handicap race. Riders of the night were awarded by Commissaire on the night Tim Whitehouse. Tim awarded the under-17 prize to Chris Denholm on the back of his impressive effort to win his scratch race. The over-17 prize went to Matiu Kaihau due to his domination of the races he entered on the night. Results on the night were: Under-15 Boys 5 Lap Scratch Race 1st Chris Den- holm; Under-15 Girls 5 Lap Scratch Race 1st Emily Shearman; Under-17 Girls, Under 19 Women and Masters Women 6 Lap Scratch race 1st Kate Stew- art.
