Careful craftsmanship and excellent attention to detail have given this Hokowhitu home a new lease of life. The established residence is ready to serve its residents for many more years to come. In keeping with the home’s traditional character, new French doors open onto an existing deck and gardens for that all-important indoor-outdoor flow. Upstairs the master bedroom enjoys access to a private deck – perfect for sunny days. The original bathroom has been replaced with a stylish retreat for two where dual porcelain basins add a touch of luxury. The ensuite is striking in presentation with floor-to-ceiling tiles and double mirrors and shelving above the basins. There’s also a laundry chute and underfloor heating for winter days. The replacement of existing doors, architraves, skirting and weatherboards is seamless throughout. There’s almost no telling what’s old and what’s new in this exceptional renovation.
