30 THURSDAY, JANUARY 26, 2012 SPORT 4307698AA Realise your dreams with this Pharazyn Street home says Sandra Crosbie Sitting in its own private park-like setting, this Pharazyn Street home, is desirable for many reasons. Set on a sheltered back section of 4054m2 (1 acre) the home enjoys privacy in a semi-rural setting. It is tucked away behind mature trees, sheltered plantings, and is surrounded by lush lawn and plenty of garden, guest parking and room for family activities. Families would love this home. The parents - for its Mediterranean aesthetics and contemporary design and spaciousness, and the rest of the family - for the chance to have their own room, space to hang out with friends and room for outside activities. It is an attractive home, which has architectural influences from the Mediterranean. These influences follow through inside the home with the terracotta-tiled floor, which features in the front entrance and open plan living area. The much-loved azure of the Mediterranean Sea is reflected in the kitchen cabinetry, which punches a sparkling injection of colour to the light and airy open-plan living area. An island bench segregates the kitchen from the dining area as well as providing a great spot for casual eating and drinking. The tiled floor in the open-plan room provides practicality for family living and a wonderful sense of being in a tropical location. The wide windows and bi-fold doors open this room to the garden and are well positioned to catch the sun at the appropriate times. For winter, there is a wood-burner, which spreads its heat throughout the home with the heat transfer system. Double internal doors from two entrances open into the separate lounge. This provides an excellent space for television time or further entertaining. It too has the exterior bifold doors and features a wonderful pitched ceiling. This room can be accessed directly from the front entrance, so makes it a wonderful space to welcome guests. The remainder of the home is accessed from the hall. Potentially there could be six bedrooms, should you need them. More practically, there are four bedrooms with both a separate office and a studio. These great rooms provide flexibility for family or work from home potential. Three of the bedrooms have French doors, which open out to the garden, and all have excellent wardrobes. The master has a walk-in wardrobe and ensuite. Tiles feature strongly in the family bathroom, and they too have the a Mediterranean theme -- crisp white with a blue accent. The tiled walk-in shower is particularly appealing. The studio is a wonderful room located next to the internal garage, but it has its own bi-fold doors and separate entrance from the driveway. This would be great for artistic endeavours, homes business or another living area for teenagers. A wonderful further living/play area is available in a lined loft space about the garage. This is a well presented home and desirable which will appeal to people looking for a private, semi-rural family home with options for living.

Horsing around despite the rain Not bad: Bridgette O'Leary from Whanganui riding Cinnamon Spice proudly shows off her ribbons after competing in the children's ribbon events. Photo: SUBMITTED Tutaenui Sports Day held January 15 on Dan O Leary s property was a great success considering the weather was very wet early in the morning in most districts. This may have stopped a lot of people coming. The phone rang red hot from 5.30am until the secretary left for the grounds, which were in top condition for the event. The weather closed in on us as the day s events started at 9am. The rain lasted for about one hour and then it was fine for the rest of the day. Entries were much the same as last year despite the weather. Great jumping was seen in the Show Jumping rings but Show Hunter was down a bit. Flat classes went well but all got wet. A High Jump was run in the lunch break, with eight starters finishing with two riders fighting for 1st place, Shari Johnston and Daniel Webb, Daniel just beating Shari at a height of 1.56 metres. The prize was $200 and winner-takes-all. Despite the weather, a number of small riders and ponies got all dressed up for the Fancy Dress, sponsored by Paper Plus. Thank you to all the committee and our sponsors who all helped make the day a success. Pub Charity was our main sponsor.
