Boldly walking the tightrope between old-fashioned charm and modern expectations, this striking Wellington home will appeal to a family looking to establish roots. Large in stature and impressively proportioned, the 480sqm interior delivers functional design and uncompromising style. Five bedrooms, four bathrooms and three living spaces deliver ultimate comfort. Inside flows invitingly out.
Parquet flooring steals the show at the entrance, drawing the eye through the spine of the home to the rear landscape. Downstairs living rooms branch off the main hallway, creating natural flow to these separated rooms. Moulded skirtings and inviting open fireplaces give a nod to the past.
But you only need look at the kitchen and bathrooms to see that this home isn’t completely hung up on tradition. The latest appliances in the entertainer’s space and scullery cater to gatherings relaxed and refined. The master ensuite is dazzling in black and white. A glazed shower, double vanity, separate toilet and large mirror all enhance this retreat for two.
