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 here.
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!!!
We have lived in Silverstream for six years and every day is magic. People are very friendly and there is a good mix of people including ages and ethnicity.
I feel privileged to be a member of the Silverstream Social Club and through this I have taken part in organising several events throughout the year, including a Duck Race, Xmas Party, Movies, Quiz Nights, Wine Tour etc – All of which are well supported by the community.
The Developers have encouraged a lot of this to happen and the feeling is of a self-sufficient place to live.
We are very fortunate to have the local businesses within walking distance, Urban Revival for a coffee fix, Doctor and Chemist, Physio, Dentist, Dairy, Hairdresser etc so they are easily accessible to all residents.
Supermarkets are close by in Kaiapoi and Rangiora, and Hardware, Fashion and Shoes, plus several Restaurants so no need to travel into the city. We seldom do that now as everything you need is only minutes away.
People walk and ride around the stream, which we are lucky to have on our doorstep. There’s something for everyone!
We are very passionate about Silverstream and almost consider it to be a ‘hidden gem’
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 offered.
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.
