The five-bedroom, 1400-square-metre house in Overtoun Terrace in Hataitai will be fitted with two bars, an indoor swimming pool, work areas, massage and games rooms, a “great room”, and a home theatre.
It is being constructed on two sections of land, bought for $5.8m in 2016 by Wellington-based siblings Nigel and Susan Stanford.
The combined cost of the land and the house totals $13.3m.

Whether it's you or a partner, snoring isn't just an annoying noise. It impacts the health of the snorer, as well as the sleep quality of those around them.

Caused by the tissues of the throat relaxing and narrowing during sleep - snoring is a sign that a reduced amount of air is breathed in during sleep.

Snorex is a custom made device that holds the jaw forward, opening up the airway and stopping snoring. Made in Stokes Valley for 25 years, each Snorex is custom fitted for comfort and efficacy.

Trish Hina could be the greatest sportswoman you have never heard of.
A product of Naenae College, she later settled in Gisborne, where she was a social worker.
Her sporting CV includes representing New Zealand in touch, softball, rugby and rugby league.
Initially, her sporting success came in softball, playing for New Zealand and helping her club and Hutt Valley win numerous titles.
League was however her first love and in 2000 Hina was named MVP at the first women’s World Cup, where New Zealand beat Great Britain 26-4.
She was prominent in the Kiwi Ferns retaining the World Cup in 2005 and 2008.
In the 2008 defence, Hina was named MVP for a second time. In the final, New Zealand thrashed Australia 34-0, with Hina scoring two tries and kicking three conversions.
In 2010, she achieved arguably her greatest achievement by being selected to play for the Black Ferns at the World Cup.
She became the first female to win rugby and league World Cups.
Towards the end of her career, Hina was diagnosed with kidney disease and she was unable to fulfill her dream of playing Sevens at the Rio Olympics in 2016.
In 2015, she was inducted as a Hutt Valley Sports Awards legend.

A person in Wellington has returned a “weak” suspected Covid-19 test, weeks after completing their isolation.
It is the capital’s first possible case outside the Government’s managed isolation and quarantine facilities in more than a month.
In a statement the Ministry of Health said the person returned from the United States in September and completed their 14 days in isolation on September 21.
They then became sick after completing the mandatory 14 days isolation while in Wellington this week and sought medical care. The details around the sickness are unknown.
The person returned a “weak” positive test on Thursday, meaning the infection was likely historical, and has since been transferred to a quarantine facility in Wellington.
The Ministry of Health is conducting further testing but testing to date suggest a historical infection is highly likely.

Looking for a forever home for two ginger cats to be rehomed together. One in particular is very affectionate. They’re both really good with kids including babies.

My family and I have recently moved and between the move and having to travel frequently for work, the cats don't seem to be very happy and haven't adjusted to a new neighbourhood with lots of other cats around. We would like a home for them
where someone is able to be there for them.

This is what she wrote about her picture.

"It was both beautiful and sobering coming across a nesting kereru (Hemiphaga novaeseelandiae), aka wood pigeon, couple yesterday - I was following a grey warbler at the time. They had set up their twiggy nest in the crown of a punga tree.
The couple were so intensely private I felt like an atheist that had accidentally stumbled into a church or a mosque - big and bumbling and out of place, but in awe and still having a grotesque fascination for the stain-glass windows. I took my photos and quietly left."
