This Christchurch house has been completely customised for the first home-buyer. It may be compact at 175sqm, but it packs a lot into its square metrage. There are three bedrooms, two bathrooms, two living areas and a double garage with internal access for a family to spread out as they grow. Enter through the classic, stone-clad portico and you’ll end up in the open-plan kitchen/dining space. The user-friendly kitchen is an up-to-the minute colour combination of dark and light, complete with trendy black tower tap and American-sized double-door fridge. One of the two bathrooms reflects that luxurious hotel-style beloved of interior designers right down to its ultra-modern oval freestanding bath, frameless glassed-in shower and stunning marble-style tiles dramatically extending across both the floor and walls. The clean neutral-coloured interiors ensure classic styling that won’t need to be updated every time there’s a new colour trend either.
