A villa which is thought to be over 100 years old will be moved from its original location tonight.

Whangarei moving company O'Neills Building Removals Limited will be moving the yellow villa from a Collinge Rd site to a paddock in the Dartmoor Rd area, while they wait for consents to be processed. Yesterday, they had the house propped up and ready to move.

O'Neills owner Jeremy O'Neill said the owners of the Collinge Road site were planning to build a new house on the section.

Despite being based in Whangarei, Mr O'Neill said they received the majority of their work through word of mouth, especially with older houses.
