Standing proud in its leafy Christchurch suburb, this spacious four-bedroom, three-bathroom family home demands attention from the street. A raft of bold cladding materials in contrasting colours is employed to perfection. Tall, slender windows capture natural light while accentuating the home’s stature. Facing north, the light, airy open-plan area enjoys all-day sun. Large glazed doors peel back to promote flow between interior and exterior living spaces. Set under a louvred roof, the spacious northfacing hardwood deck sets the scene for outdoor entertaining. The resident foodie can indulge their passion for cooking in the stunning kitchen complete with all the mod-cons. A well-connected scullery allows messy jobs to be kept behind the scenes when guests are over. With extensive insulation in the floors, walls and ceilings, ducted heat pumps can perform at their best. For a little extra atmosphere in winter, the gas fire is a welcome addition. Designed to serve for many years to come, the home, with keyless entry, is also wired for an electric car charger.
