Boutique estate in Upper Kedron is powering through the sales

first_imgStylemaster Homes are one of the builders in boutique estate Ellendale at Upper Kedron.Mr Ashen said the sales staff, in particular Ian Watts and owners Jeff and Sharon Piconi were very helpful, providing an abundance of information to meet all of their queries, but the deal was sealed by personal experience.“Stylemaster built mum’s home around 10 years ago and did an excellent job from start to finish and mum only had great things to say about them,” he said.Colliers International sales agent Daniel Hirst, who is marketing the estate, said the first stage of 143 lots was under construction with the second stage also underway and two-thirds sold.“There are only a number of home sites available in the first stage ranging in size from 320sq m to 626sq m, which are priced from $316,000 to $399,000,” Mr Hirst said.“The majority of purchasers are owner occupiers, with a high proportion being second and third home buyers. “People are also attracted to the natural, bushland setting and undulating topography of the site, and the fact that the lots are being fully benched and retained, with reticulated gas and NBN provided.” The estate backs onto the South D’Aguilar National Park, and approximately 40 per cent of the 227ha site is being dedicated to Brisbane City Council as green space. Ellendale estate in Upper Kedron is ticking all of the boxes for a boutique estate lifestyle only 12km’s from the CBD.The couples checklist included being close to the city for work, having a community feel to socialise in the street, lots of green space and no apartments, units or townhouses.“We live in The Gap at the moment and it offers all of these things but we couldn’t find our perfect home in The Gap and the blocks of land we have seen for sale in The Gap and Ashgrove were all very small, especially for the cost to purchase them,” Ms Inwood said.More from newsMould, age, not enough to stop 17 bidders fighting for this home6 hours agoBuyers ‘crazy’ not to take govt freebies, says 28-yr-old investor6 hours agoThe couple have chosen to build with Stylemaster homes being impressed by the quality and detail in their homes and also the staff and owners.“We viewed a lot of display homes all over the greater Brisbane area and Stylemaster’s homes are so much more stylish and contemporary than any of those offered by the major players,” Mr Ashen said.“We considered engaging a private builder, but economically, we get better value for our money through retaining Stylemaster to build our home.” Kris Ashen and Kaela Inwood are looking forward to their eventual move to Ellendale estate at Upper Kedron.A LONG wish list has been met for this young professional couple who have found the perfect place to build their first home on Brisbane’s northside.Kris Ashen and Kaela Inwood have purchased a 540sq m block in Upper Kedron’s new boutique estate, Ellendale, just 12km’s from the CBD.Developed by Cedar Woods, the estate is powering through the sales averaging 13 per month since its launch mid last year.Mr Ashen said they were originally looking for a home to buy for around 15 months but came across Ellendale estate and found it met with the couples list of needs and wants.“We are fussy, though we knew what we wanted and didn’t want to settle for anything less,” he said.last_img read more

Norway’s December oil output lower than expected over Goliat stoppage

first_imgNorway’s oil production in December 2017 was lower than expected by the Norwegian Petroleum Directorate (NPD), a government agency in charge of regulating the petroleum resources in the country.The NPD said on Tuesday that preliminary production figures for December 2017 showed an average daily production of 1,932,000 barrels of oil, NGL, and condensate, which is an increase of 26,000 barrels per day compared to November.Total gas sales were 11.2 billion Sm3 (GSm3), which is an increase of 0.3 GSM3 from the previous month.Average daily liquids production in December was: 1,538,000 barrels of oil, 363,000 barrels of NGL, and 31,000 barrels of condensate.The oil production was approximately four percent lower than the NPD’s forecast, and about 1.7 percent below the forecast this year.According to the NPD, the main reason that production in December was below forecast is that Goliat was closed until the 17th of December and also due to technical problems and maintenance work on some other fields.The total petroleum production in 2017 inclusive preliminary December figures was 238.7 million Sm3 oil equivalents (MSm3 o.e.), broken down as follows: 92.3 MSm3 o.e. of oil, 22.2 MSm3 o.e. of NGL, and condensate and 124.2 MSm3 o.e. of gas for sale. The total volume is 6.0 MSm3 o.e. higher than in 2016.Final production figures from November 2017 show an average daily production of about 1.510 million barrels of oil, 0.396 million barrels of NGL and condensate, and a total of 10.9 billion Sm3 saleable gas production.last_img read more

Not so friendly skies for drug runners.

first_img Share Share 49 Views   no discussions Share Sharing is caring!center_img Tweet LifestyleNewsRegionalTravel Not so friendly skies for drug runners. by: – June 25, 2012 US aerial drones to monitor Caribbean sea lanes for drug traffickers.BRIDGETOWN, Barbados, Monday June 25, 2012 – More famously known for their targeted assassination techniques in the Middle East, the United States “Predator drone” technology is now being brought into the drug-trafficking fight in the Caribbean.Reports coming out of the US are that the Department of Homeland Security has been testing its unmanned aerial vehicles (UAVs) over the Bahamas for more than a year and is ready to go operational over areas used by smuggling boats in the sea lanes of the Caribbean and Gulf of Mexico.US Customs and Border Protection has reportedly asked for US$5.8 million in additional financing to further push its drone operations into the Gulf of Mexico and Caribbean.The US military is also said to be establishing a new control station in Corpus Christi, Texas this month, a base that will allow Predator drones to perform flights over a larger portion of the Gulf of Mexico; while in Cocoa Beach, Florida, a single new drone will be added to the military’s fleet to monitor water over the Caribbean.The Los Angeles Times reported that the Department of Homeland Security already has nine Predators, most of which are assigned to the Mexican and Canadian border areas. Adding the Gulf and Caribbean to the patrol area will more than double the square miles currently covered.This move has reportedly come about because, while the United States has been operating several high-tech aircraft in the area, those flights have apparently failed to fight speed boats and other craft used to smuggle drugs into the United States.However, some scepticism remains as to whether this new technology will be any more effective. Officials told the LA Times the Predator has not proven particularly successful at detecting small boats on the open sea.The technology being deployed in monitoring drug trafficking routes over the Bahamas border agents reported used a special variation of the Predator B UAV known as “The Guardian”. The UAV was equipped with a SeaVue radar system that is capable of scanning large areas of open water. The Guardian is able to check a ship’s unique radio pulse through a database which can identify the boat’s owner and ship type.Caribbean 360 Newslast_img read more

Munster go top with Blues triumph

first_img After an evenly contested opening 40 minutes in Cork, during which JJ Hanrahan matched Rhys Patchell’s three-penalty tally, tries from stand-in captain Denis Hurley and impressive young back rower Jack O’Donoghue put Munster in a winning position Cardiff flanker Josh Navidi crossed in the 71st minute, but Hanrahan’s fourth penalty and a last-minute try from Ronan O’Mahony saw Munster finish with a flourish as they moved to the top of the Guinness PRO12 table. Munster ran in three second-half tries to secure a 33-16 win over Cardiff Blues in their first outing at the newly-redeveloped Irish Independent Park. A dose of flu saw Andrew Conway and Ian Keatley withdrawn from the Munster team before kick-off, with Luke O’Dea and Rory Scannell replacing them. Scannell and man-of-the-match Hanrahan shared time at first receiver throughout the game. Munster were first to threaten, Scannell being hauled down five metres short before Hanrahan converted his second penalty attempt – just moments after his first kick had come back off the post and into the arms of the leaping O’Mahony. Following Patchell’s opening three-pointer, some neat link play between backs and forwards saw the Blues get in sight of the try-line with Cory Allen and Lucas Amorosino both showing good feet. The net result was another Patchwell penalty. The Welshmen remained on the front foot as Lloyd Williams’ pass was just ruled forward before Gavin Evans broke clear for the posts, and Patchell punished a Donncha O’Callaghan lineout infringement to make it 9-3. An offside call against Manoa Vosawai allowed Hanrahan to respond off the kicking tee. The Munster full-back duly drew his side level in the 39th minute after Macauley Cook was caught offside. Anthony Foley’s side were much improved on the resumption, profiting from a zippier, direct attack. Number eight O’Donoghue bulldozed through off quick lineout ball and as the hosts crept closer, centre Hurley burrowed over from a yard out. Hanrahan supplied the extras for a 16-9 scoreline. Even better followed on the hour mark. A Scannell turnover launched a tremendous length-of-the-field attack as Hurley sent Keith Earls dashing and spinning away from five retreating Blues. O’Donoghue provided the finishing touches, using his strength and speed to break free and score to the left of the posts. The Blues efforts’ deserved a try and Navidi delivered it, slipping through from a ruck in the 22 and holding off Darren Sweetnam to touch down. Patchell converted to raise hopes of his side claiming a losing bonus point, yet Munster had more in the tank and Hanrahan booted them out of reach before his final pass put winger O’Mahony over for try number three. center_img Press Associationlast_img read more
