Situated among the tussock and mountains, living is easy for the owners of this new country home in Twizel. Good design, quality materials and excellent craftsmanship are key factors in the success of this stellar three-bedroom, two-bathroom residence. Extensive use of Douglas fir in posts, battens and trims adds a wonderful woodland feel and connects the home to the landscape.

Along with the entrance and kitchen, it frames wonderful mountain views. Outdoor living awaits through large sliding doors. The north-facing position allows for optimum solar gain, even in winter. Fully polished floors absorb the rays and release heat throughout the day. Underfloor heating is on standby for extra cold days and nights. Whether its minus 20 degrees and snowing or a sweltering 30 degrees, this home will adapt to ensure superior comfort. Just sit back, relax and enjoy the dramatic landscape.
