This bold new abode in Palmerston North presents strong lines and striking forms. Climbing to two storeys, a smart floor plan maximises the townhouse-size section. There are four bedrooms and two living spaces, plus a mezzanine library.
A versatile 262sqm design allows the family to choose their configuration, turning the fourth bedroom and second lounge into extra bedroom, study or living space as desired.
Built with modern style and laidback, low-maintenance living in mind, the ground floor is the meeting place for family and guests. The generous kitchen, with dramatic L-shaped island, is served by a walk-through scullery/laundry. It’s ideal for keeping clutter out of site and connects to the internal garage, streamlining the grocery run.
Inside flows easily to a well-designed alfresco space for open-air entertaining. The master bedroom is also on this level with access to the outdoors. Guests can enjoy their own space upstairs. Bathrooms on both levels include a master ensuite.
AS WELL AS BEING THE LOCAL CATEGORY WINNER, EXCEL BUILDERS LIMITED ALSO WON THE NATIONAL BUILDER'S OWN HOME AWARD AT THE NATIONAL COMPETITION.
