NZ House & Garden - - HOMES -

This house is eco-friendly: The so­lar heat­ing pan­els on the roof are fairly non-in­tru­sive and keep the power bill down. The sys­tem will pay for it­self over time. Favourite kitchen ap­pli­ance: An in­stant wa­ter heater, which means I have dis­pensed with a noisy elec­tric jug and have boiling wa­ter on tap.

Best seat in the house: The claw­foot bath.

This is a great place to live: Christchurch’s mod­ern city cen­tre is start­ing to un­fold.

I like to buy: A bunch of flow­ers from Mrs Bot­tom­ley’s Flow­ers in the Tannery in Wool­ston.

Best place for cof­fee: Co­coa Black out­side Merivale Mall.

Favourite lo­cal shop: Cop­per & Pink.
