Designed as a weekend retreat for a busy family of six from Christchurch, this modern Meadow Stone home leaves no stone unturned.
Shared and private spaces are separated into two pods, linked by an entrance hall overlooking a private courtyard. Four queen bedrooms reside in one pod. The large master with ensuite and his-and-hers wardrobe enjoys access to a private deck. The second pod houses a super-spacious kitchen and living area with separate lounge. Feeding the masses is a breeze, with two food prep areas, a walk-behind pantry, wine fridge and central island bench. An office nook is neatly incorporated into the design.
Warmth comes courtesy of two gas fires, a heat pump and electric underfloor heating. Over-spec insulation keeps heat contained. The heat pump also cools in summer.
Outdoor living, complete with barbecue and gas fire, awaits through large sliding doors for apres ski relaxation. A carpeted garage/spare room caters to holiday overflow. A second bathroom with separate toilet and well-appointed laundry complete this enviable home.
