Our friend Warren Tutton invited us over for some drinks one day, he lived on the 34th floor of the same Southport tower we were looking at.“He had his place styled by Robinson’s design and it was very, very schmick. We loved what he did to the place and how inviting it felt.”3501/50 Marine Pde, Southport.The Johnsons spent $300,000 on renovations. The couple said they made a few small changes by widening doorways and adding a touch of luxury to the main bedroom.“It was a subtle change that made a huge difference,” Mr Johnson said. “The views were marvellous and are a standout so we wanted a comfortable, simple style to complement it.”Double doors create formality to the luxury main suite with a relaxation space, a wall of built-in wardrobes, and a spa bath.3501/50 Marine Pde, Southport.Mr Johnson said living in an apartment hadn’t compromised his lifestyle. “The balcony is north-facing which means it is protected from the elements,” he said. “You can still entertain, we have had 40 people around for a get-together once. We usually have a barbecue on the balcony.”A granite wine bar with twin integrated Vintec fridges feature in the media lounge room, where glass doors provide seamless interaction with a covered balcony and outlook of the northern coastline.last_img read more

Unless they pay immediately, the city will shut off their utilities in the very near future. The person then offers a pre-paid credit cards to pay this bill.This is a hoax, the city office said. Do not buy the cards or give them any information. Just hang up.Pam Martin, business office manager for the Sumner County Care Center in Wellington received a similar phone call.“We received a phone call this morning around 6:30 a.m.,” she said. “The gentleman with a foreign accent called and spoke to one of our nurses here at the facility and said that he was with the City of Wellington and that the March and April electric bills were not paid and that the utilities were due to be shut off at 8:30 a.m.”She said she hadn’t arrived at work yet, but when she did, she called the person back with the 800 number he had given.“I returned the call, and he could not tell me our account number or give us the exact amount that was due either,” Martin said. “But wanted us to go to Dillon’s and put $1,998.97 on a green dot card and if not then (Sumner County Care Center) could talk to the technician when he came out to turn the electricity off at 8:30.”Martin said she would be glad to meet with the technician. She said she never heard from the company again.Follow us on Twitter.last_img read more
