This four-bedroom Flat Bush abode is on the level with modern living – its building platform neatly cut into the gently undulating section. Facing the street, two bold gable forms identify the spacious and functional garage and semi-covered alfresco living area. The deck is perfect for barbecues, no matter the weather, and is brilliantly connected to the open plan. A subtle Spanish-style finish adds a nice touch to the plastered brickwork. Built for a family with grown children, the semi-rural lifestyle home is still connected to the city. Well-placed windows welcome in views of Auckland’s skyline. The clever design excludes neighbouring homes from view without compromising solar gain. With two generous-sized living spaces, four bedrooms and two bathrooms, the 312sqm home achieves understated luxury on a modest budget. A huge walk-in pantry is tucked away behind a cavity slider in the sleek, chic entertainer’s kitchen. A built-in feature fire adds ambience in the cosy carpeted lounge and dining area.
