Nestled down a driveway in Christchurch, this towering 270sqm abode presents crisp, clean exterior appeal. Black and white joinery and cladding give definition to the sophisticated structure. The roof is an integral part of the overall form. Louvres to the upstairs windows offer not only privacy on a busy site but respite from direct sun.
The black-and-white theme flows seamlessly through the interior of this practical and well-considered home. Located at the heart of it all, the kitchen reflects the owners desire for clean, powerful lines – as do the mirrored splashback and island.
Vast lengths of wood floor deliver a warm, inviting ambience in the open-plan living area and scullery. A separate lounge is a pleasant feature for quiet relaxation. The home enjoys great flow to the outdoors via glazed sliders. Alfresco spaces are designed for everyday enjoyment and entertaining.
The three bathrooms are elegant yet understated. All four bedrooms are a dream to wake up in.
