Perched on a hill amid native bush, this lovingly restored port town home gazes over the harbour and surrounding bays. All four bedrooms, the open-plan living area and a formal lounge enjoy a brilliant connection with the outdoors. A large wraparound deck beckons through glazed sliders on the lower level. The master bedroom boasts a private balcony for peace and solitude.
The Canterbury quakes left the original 1975 Peter Beaven-designed home in need of significant restoration. Work began with a complete re-level of the residence. The entire structure was then stripped back to its skeleton and extensive effort went into fixing and straightening the framing. Salvageable elements from the original structure have been rescued and seamlessly incorporated into the renovation, giving this beloved abode a flawless new-home finish.
The home has been cloaked in stunning cedar cladding which sits well in the natural surroundings. Double glazed windows are a fantastic modern update and new roofing finishes off the renovation beautifully.
AS WELL AS BEING THE LOCAL CATEGORY WINNER, PREMIUM HOME BUILDERS LIMITED ALSO WON THE BUNNINGS SERVICES RENOVATION $500,000-$1 MILLION AWARD AT THE NATIONAL COMPETITION.
