Blurring the indoor/outdoor lines.“With the architect, we worked to really create that sense of flow indoor and outdoor so we maximised what we had,” said Dr Naidoo.She says they used a variety of techniques to achieve the effect so that element likes water, vegetation, glass and timber all work together.Mr Howey’s experience as an environmental consultant specialising in water came to the fore as when the couple decided they wanted to have a feature with a difference.“The idea was floated about having an indoor pond and we ran with that.More from newsMould, age, not enough to stop 17 bidders fighting for this home2 hours agoBuyers ‘crazy’ not to take govt freebies, says 28-yr-old investor8 hours ago“We utilised that space under the stairs and the void area that’s usually relegated to unutilised space or storage space to really make it a feature of the home. It’s a really welcoming entrance,” Dr Naidoo said. Guard fish! The ultimate protection!And as for the pond’s fish, well they can be part of the package for the right buyer.“They’ve been long term inhabitants.“If there is a loving family to take care of them we would leave them. We think that’s their home, they’ve grown up in it and we wouldn’t necessarily transfer them.”Apart from the life aquatic, Dr Naidoo says she’ll miss the location with the ferry, Oxford St cafes and nearby parks all drawing in new residents to the suburb. Marketing agent with Place Bulimba, Shannon Harvey, says the marriage of indoor/outdoor has been the drawcard for potential buyers.“It really is like your own oasis — lots of glass, a void entry with feature lighting, very open plan and it’s been designed with very large living spaces.”“It’s actually got a cute little garden out the front with some fruit trees and some chillies growing in a little vege patch,” she said.On top of that, the property’s cul-de-sac position creates for a surprisingly quite spot in this inner-city hub.“It’s the one part of Bulimba that you hardy see any cars. You don’t get any of that thoroughfare traffic and you’re in the heart of Bulimba which is unheard off — and with a park outside your door as well,” said Ms Harvey. 9 Reach Pl Bulimba goes to auction Thursday 9th March. A marriage of indoor outdoor … plus a surprise under the stairs!There’s something under the stairs in this Brisbane home which has buyers talking.When you’re about to build on a 319sq m site, the challenge is to create space when there feels like none.Mellissa Naidoo and James Howey knew their block at 9 Reach Pl Bulimba would be a challenge, so smart design was called upon to create a Tardis-like residence bursting with room.The 2012 dwelling is a four-bedroom, two-bathroom oasis for people who want to blur the lines between indoors and outside.

28-year-old Wisil, who became the first track and field female athlete in the Pacific Island nations to qualify on merit for this year’s Rio Olympic, praised the good Lord for helping her achieve her dreams.“I lost my dad and my brother in the same month but I want to thank God for the talent and helping me achieve my dreams.“I never give up on my dreams; this is my passion and my life. I have been participating in athletics for 12 years now. This is a big moment for me and my coach, they have been behind me and I’m so proud of them,” Wisil said.“I can’t believe it, I trained hard and dedication has paid off and I’m happy. I want to thank God for everything he has done for me,” she added.The elated Wisil said: “When you have a dream, don’t give up. You work hard to achieve your dreams. Nothing is free in life.”Wisil’s coach, Tony Fairweather, said Wisil would skip the preliminary rounds in the Olympics which should make things easier for her.“She was already selected for PNG team but it’s good for her to come here and do her qualifier,” he said.“This means this is going to stop her from going to that preliminary rounds; she’s not going to take the risk of qualifying again when she gets there. That’s the beauty of it.“We had a really long summer, we have done a lot of racing and we knew that if we get the right conditions, we will get the results.”
A fine was also reduced from 600,000 Swiss francs ($607,000; £462,000) to half that amount by the Lausanne-based court.Lampard insisted he had not yet had any conversations with Chelsea’s board about transfer plans, but will start them now in earnest.“It’s a positive outcome for us. It allows us the potential to look at the market going forward,” Lampard said at a press conference ahead of Saturday’s Premier League trip to Everton.“So I’m pleased from a footballing level. It was never my business to get involved in the reasons why or the legal side of it.“So from my point of view, for the club moving forward, it’s obviously a good thing.”A CAS statement explaining their decision said that Chelsea were guilty of violating rules related to the international transfer and registration of minors, “but for a significantly smaller number of players”, concluding that they were only guilty of one third of the violations found by FIFA.In addition, the breaches of other transfer rules “were found to be less serious than those attributed to Chelsea FC by FIFA”.Chelsea later welcomed the news before describing FIFA’s approach as “deeply unsatisfactory, not least as FIFA chose to treat Chelsea entirely differently to Manchester City for reasons that make absolutely no sense to Chelsea”.A 451-word statement issued on Twitter detailed how, according to the club, FIFA had got it badly wrong bringing the charges.The club said it “respects the importance of the work undertaken by FIFA” concerning the protection of minors.But it warned that if FIFA continued to impose “inconsistent and unequal sanctions” on clubs it would cast doubt on the confidence in the body’s ability to “appropriately regulate this important area”.The initial ban was announced by football’s world governing body in February, but Chelsea had always denied wrongdoing.It followed a FIFA probe into Chelsea’s signing of foreign under-18 players, including the club’s former forward Bertrand Traore, a Burkina Faso international who now plays for French Ligue 1 club Lyon.Frank Lampard could now see new signings arrive at Chelsea in the January window, but admitted the club would need to be careful with their recruitement policy © AFP/File / Ben STANSALLTraore signed professional forms for Chelsea in 2013 at the age of 18 but was not registered until January the following year.At first they appealed to FIFA who partially lifted the ban in April, although only for players under 16 who are not “international transfers and first registrations of foreign minor players”.That left Chelsea still unable to sign players over 16 during the summer transfer window.– ‘Important we get it right’ –Chelsea had been eager to have the ban lifted at the time, or at least suspended pending an appeal, so they could be in a position to sign a replacement for Eden Hazard, who was sold to Real Madrid.Nevertheless, in the absence of new recruits, Lampard has enjoyed success promoting several members of the club’s youth academy to the first team.Centre-back Fikayo Tomori, midfielder Mason Mount and striker Tammy Abraham have all returned from loan spells to become regulars, their form leading to England call-ups. Abraham is Chelsea’s top scorer with 12 goals this season.Young full-back Reece James has also broken into the first team, while USA winger Christian Pulisic remains the last new signing brought to the club after being signed from Borussia Dortmund for £58 million ($74 million) last January.Chelsea are currently fourth in the Premier League and Lampard admitted the club would need to be careful with their recruitment policy.“As we go forward of course if I feel there are positions we can strengthen then we will obviously look at that, as all big clubs do.“That’s why people expected less of us this season, because lots of clubs around us and below us were spending £100 million and we didn’t have that chance, and we lost Eden Hazard and two number nines.“Now the picture’s slightly changed and it’s important that we get it right moving forward.”0Shares0000(Visited 9 times, 1 visits today) 0Shares0000Chelsea will be able to make new signings in January after their transfer ban was reduced on appeal by the Court of Arbitration for Sport © AFP/File / JUSTIN TALLISLausanne, Switzerland, Dec 6 – Chelsea manager Frank Lampard admitted the club will be on the lookout for new faces in the January window after a FIFA-imposed transfer ban was reduced on appeal by the Court of Arbitration for Sport (CAS) on Friday.The ban, imposed following violations in the recruitment of minors, was reduced from two transfer windows to one, which Chelsea already served in the summer.
