Bold planes of light and dark join forces beneath the raking rooftops of this modern residence in northeast Christchurch. Four bedrooms, two bathrooms and two living spaces rest comfortably on 243sqm.
The contemporary kitchen is the heart of the family home, designed for everyday life and welcoming gatherings. Central to the dining area and both living rooms, it is a great spot to grab a snack, serve canapes or chat to guests while dinner is prepared. A walk-in pantry/laundry keeps dirty work behind the scenes. Outdoor access spares a thought for adventurous kids.
The family bathroom with freestanding tub serves youngsters too, while the owners can enjoy their master ensuite in peace. A walk-in robe and glass sliders to a private patio complete the master retreat.
Tucked behind a cavity slider in the open-plan living zone, a discreet home office makes great use of available space. Glass sliders foster flow to decks in almost every direction. There’s a perfect spot for every outdoor indulgence, from morning coffee and meals with friends to a quiet nightcap under the stars.
