This four-bedroom resort-style home commands attention on the edge of Christchurch’s Clearwater Golf Club.
The bagged-schist, plaster, steel and cedar exterior can be admired from the 10th green. Breathtaking vaulted cedar ceilings with glass gables give the open-plan space and ensuites height while drawing in natural light. A striking stone feature wall houses a wood burner for cold winter nights in the living area. Mood-lighting options offer that extra touch of luxury. A separate lounge with feature fireplace has the added comfort of carpet. The stylish, state-of-the-art kitchen with scullery connects morning and afternoon courtyards, enhancing flow to the beautiful outdoors. The sleek island bench ties in with the high-gloss tiles underfoot. Extensive use of dark-stained American oak joinery contrasts well with the western red cedar used throughout. Feature LED lighting ensures the house radiates warmth, colour and texture inside and out. The guest bedroom with ensuite affords visitors an opulent getaway experience with stunning views of the golf course.
