The choice of casual living in Christchurch is celebrated with a clever 245sqm design that maximises outdoor space. The story starts at the street front, where the home’s beautifully open and inviting character is undiminished by smart road-facing walls. These conceal the glass-fronted lounge, stepping to the first of three alfresco living zones.
Positioned to the sun-soaked side of the home, the second alfresco area is a large low deck, which serves the sunny open-plan living space. The third, an expansive patio, is tucked around the corner, linking to the open-plan area and master bedroom inside.
Four bedrooms and two bathrooms, plus a study, offer plenty of family-friendly functionality inside.
A pared-back colour palette flows through the home. Wood grain adds appealing natural texture, tying the separate spaces together, from joinery in the kitchen and bedrooms to the extensive use of brown tiles in the family bathrooms and ensuite. A glistening tiled splashback lets the kitchen shine. The separate laundry and walk-in pantry are clean and simple in all white.
