Forever home

The owners of this Timaru home may have downsized but they certainly haven’t skimped on life’s little luxuries. A four-bedroom-home plan was altered to create this personalised three-bedroom abode with extra-large garage, so there is plenty of room for toys.

The spacious kitchen is the social hub of the home. Mod cons and a thoughtful layout appeal to the keen cooks. A scullery offers plenty of space for storage, while wine shelving is a nice touch above the fridge.

With retirement on the horizon, there’ll be plenty of time for the owners to pursue their passion for gardening in the landscaped grounds. Good indoor outdoor flow was a must, allowing visiting grandchildren easy access to the lawn.

A separate lounge complete with TV helps to keep kids’ activities contained on rainy days.

Sustainable features show thought for the future – this is a forever home. A 3kw photovoltaic unit delivers solar power to the hot-water system. Thermally broken aluminium joinery, low-emissivity glass and quality insulation contribute to energy savings.
