Resting in the rolling foothills of the Richmond Ranges, this Nelson home promises relaxed living and easy entertaining. Smart cedar cladding is in keeping with the landscape.
On chilly mornings, the three-bedroom, three- bathroom house stays warm thanks to superior insulation. Under-floor heating, powered by PV panels, radiates from the polished concrete floors. Swathes of glass bring the outdoors in and fill the home with light and warmth. The floor-to-ceiling fireplace in the living area can be opened up or closed off, depending on the season. A separate sitting room waits behind closed doors. Large wall spaces in the main entrance and living areas provide a blank canvas for displaying artwork. Dark surfaces in the entertainer’s kitchen eliminate glare when natural light comes streaming in. Resplendent in white and yellow, the scullery is served sunny side up. High ceilings, wide-open spaces and overheight doors enhance flow. Outside, decks connect to the bedrooms and living space, offering sun, shelter and privacy as the day progresses.
