"As we drive over the Silverstream bridge we get that awesome
feeling of peace and tranquillity, a real country feeling open
space beautiful trees,so glad we built our new home

"I was red zoned after the Christchurch February Earthquake and
needed to find somewhere else to live. I was devastated by what had
occurred and wondering what to do next. I took a drive out to
Kaiapoi and came upon the development of Silverstream Estate. There
was something about the place that appealed to me with the stream
running through it, the reserve and walkways and the lifestyle it
Upon contacting Silverstream about buying and building I found
that right from the start they were caring, honest and helpful.
They made the whole process smooth and hassle free. Nothing was a
problem and they helped me in so many ways. I highly recommend that
you come and have a look at Silverstream." Anyone starting a future
or continuing the one they are on would feel the same way I do…
Silverstream is home.
"Firstly, we are living in Silverstream because we chose to be
here. We were very lucky not to be affected by any of the
earthquakes. Silverstream Estate staff were very pleasant in all
the dealings we had with them, and the purchase of our section was
totally hassle free. Also, Michelle went the extra mile to ensure
we had the section to suit our needs, which was to build our
retirement home. The things we really like about Silverstream
are...... The stream running though the development and the green
spaces and walking paths on either side. Hopefully there may be
some trout caught this summer! The playground which is very popular
with our small visitors, and the ducks to feed. It is very quiet,
no traffic noise. The small section, which is easy to make low
maintenance. Very friendly neighbours, which gives it a village
atmosphere. Close distance to Kaiapoi, Christchurch and Rangiora.
The rural feel, like we are out in the country although we are also
close to the town. The prospect that cafes and family restaurants
are in the planning stages. We just love living here!!!"

"After the September 4 earthquake we vacated our Sewell Street
home thinking we would return in 6 months or so to either a fixed
up home or a rebuilt one. Subsequent events put paid to this and
along with many others began the long wait and frustrations with
Insurance companies & EQC. However during this period I had a
lung transplant and 6 months later Marj and I started a curtain
manufacturing business. It was, while we on our way to the airport
heading to Auckland, prior to my operation we called in to the Home
Expo in Kaiapoi and made the bold move to buy what we thought was a
section in an exciting development. At that stage we didn't know
for sure whether our Insurance payout was for a rebuild or fix up.
We eventually found out we were a complete rebuild and were
fortunate to be able to build on our section and after nearly 18
months we moved in our brand new house. We have already found the
neighbourhood friendly and enjoy walks with our dog along the river
bank an parks. We are more than happy with our decision to buy in
the area and look forward to the completion of the other stages
together with the commercial area."

"In the last year I learnt as a result of the earthquakes
I would have to shift as my house had been red zoned. My
family looked at different houses but none were suitable.
Then my son suggested I look at Silverstream as he lives
nearby. This I did, the staff there were most helpful.
In a short time they showed us the sections in Stage 1. We
picked the one that suited me. I am now in a lovely
house. I chose the plan and am very happy."
