Unfortunately the vendor had signed a 1 year rental lease to 5 male Lincoln Students 3 days before he decided to sell! That lease terminated on
Oct 20, 2007.... After that we could finally move in!


The property is surrounded by a paper road that the council has said we can have if we pay the surveyor to survey it off... I suspect if may not be as simple as it sounds!...

Directions to 11 Selwyn Lake Road

(from Christchurch Airport)

Yi-Ming’s and Andrew’s farmhouse

Turn right into Russelly road at the airport roundabout, (the 2nd roundabout)

Follow that road (i.e. keep heading south for about 25 minutes) it will become

Carmen Road (at the first set of lights)

then Shands Road (you will drive past my parent's farm 6.4 k's after the Hornby traffic lights, (Intersection with The Main South Road))

Stay on Shands road all the way to Ellesmere Lake Road, turn right, and then left into

Days Road

At the NO EXIT sign turn right into Pannetts road

About 1800 metres later turn left into

The lake Road (takes you through Coes Ford)

Then just over 1 km later turn left into

Selwyn Lake Road

Drive all the way to the end

Last 1 km is gravel, (you can see it starting in the pic below) please drive carefully - four cars have ended up off the gravel and either wrapped around trees or in the ditch, since we have owned this place....

google maps - copy and paste this address: 11 Selwyn Lake Road New Zealand, 

but be aware that you need to go around through Coes Ford as there is no bridge beside our house!
