A small town life without giving up the big city

A lot of us want to give our kids the kind of freedom we had when we were growing up – a good neighbourhood, a local village and school they can walk or ride their bikes to, and a backyard with no boundaries, courtesy of nature. A small town life offers space to roam and room to breathe on the mortgage payments, but how do you achieve that while at the same time staying connected to the city? Read on.

A family-friendly, affordable lifestyle

Parkview is sited on gently sloping land just a 20 minute walk from Helensville village with grandstand views over Rautawhiri Park in the foreground, and established bush and farmland in the distance. 

We have received resource consent for 150 sunny, north-facing sections. Parkview will offer 4-bedroom family homes from $750,000 and a small number of sections, priced from $395,000. 

Rautawhiri Park has great facilities, including a dog exercise area, skate and scooter park, netball and tennis courts, athletics, and soccer and rugby fields.

Surrounded by nature’s playground

Helensville’s Maori name is Te Awaroa — "The Valley of the Long River"— after the Kaipara River that winds through the historic township. The area was settled in 1862 by the pioneer timber miller, John McLeod, from Novia Scotia. He built a single-storey kauri home and named it Helen’s Villa, in honour of his wife. As the town grew it took and adapted the name. 

Helensville's population as at the 2013 census was 2,643. The village attracts a steady stream of visitors as a gateway for the Northwest region's varied recreational activities. Horse trekking, mountain biking, fishing, golfing, hiking, hot pools, west coast beaches and wineries are all within easy reach.

Walking distance to schools

Parkview is within close walking distance of two good schools with growing rolls and an engaged parent community. Below are excerpts from the Education Review Office (ERO) reports for the schools. We encourage you to read the full reports at ero.govt.nz.

Helensville School

Helensville School (years 1-8)

ERO Report, October 2016

"Effective leadership and stewardship are guiding the school's practices that support all learners to achieve success. The culture of high expectations for children and staff is underpinned by the belief that all children are capable learners."

Kaipara College

Kaipara College (years 9-13)

ERO Report, January 2017

"The school’s increasingly broad and responsive curriculum is very effective in engaging students in learning. Students experience authentic and purposeful learning that responds to their strengths and learning needs."

Connected to the city

A massive injection of government funds into roading infrastructure has brought Helensville closer to Auckland over the last five years. With an off-peak drive time of 39 minutes to the CBD, Helensville is now closer than ever. The reduced drive time and flood of investment has brought new residents, retailers and businesses. At the same time Westgate and Northwest have become major suburban centres, supplying everything the growing region’s residents need, just a 25-minute drive from Parkview.

A new Auckland Council and privately-funded film studio at Kumeu now under construction is expected to further boost the region’s economy.
