Timber feature walls add warmth and wow factor in the lounge and den of this fantasti c new home in Fendalton, Christchurch. A 5.5m stone feature wall in the atrium anchors the house beautifully.

A changing room with bathroom facilities serves the outdoor pool. High 2.665m ceilings create a lovely feeling of space throughout. Timber and glass sliders, cleverly concealed in wall caviti es, can divide or open the interior spaces depending on the occasion.

Floor-to-ceiling windows survey the grounds. An enviable dressing room and ensuite complete this retreat. A further four bedrooms provide plenty of space for everyone. Bathrooms total five and a gorgeous guest powder room is a bonus.
