    Do you have a retro house Moorf?
    Pretty much! A 1976 original - unique as designed by the architect builder/owner! Unique isn't always "good" but we do love whacky! I've been collecting retro furniture here and there where I can find it cheap (yeah, right!) and have become a bit of a 'fat lava' fanatic!

    To give you an idea there are a couple of pics on my blog, down the page on http://leggattnz.blogspot.com/2005_11_01_archive.html

    Not bad for someone who "hates" new houses (new in the UK being anything over 150 yrs old for me )

    Thumbs up

    @ Moorf: wow the tower!!!

    Retro furniture is expensive - as in you would think it wouldn't be, because it's not that old! There is a shop here in Welly, in Newtown, called Gawjus Things and that has loads of furniture like we had at home when I was little, it's great! All the 70s suites with the wooden arms... I don't recall them being all that comfortable but they do look great Anyway they're all quite pricey really. :|

    Not really a "dream house" ... but if we ever make it to Welly... this would be a great little place! ... it's WAY out of our price range here... but maybe we could afford it there!

    Ah Karori. This is a new build right at the top end so it's quite a way to the shops, and even the bus stop so I'm told. Also that end of Karori is supposed to be quite misty and damp....just what I've heard, I'm sure other will shoot me down. Lower Karori (nearer the city) is supposed to be nice though. ....
    ...oh and last time I looked this one was still a building site!

    hehe, had a look at some of the houses on the 1st page that are STILL for sale, if they are on the market for long enough it doesn't just have to be a dream

    Fantastic houses! Make the UK ones look pretty dated. If they're still for sale guess the NZ market is as good as the UK? We gave up trying to sell our house after a year and rented it out instead!

    So not sure would be able to buy over there, although dream houses look reachable esp. if still for sale after yrs!

    Catt - you are only up the road in Luton, we are in Hitchin arriving Auckland Jan 10th! Good luck.
