Nestled in an expanding Palmerston North suburb, this gorgeous new home is a true escape from the world. With a flexible family-friendly floor plan featuring two living spaces, this four-bedroom home is laid out for modern life with plenty of personal touches thrown in. The home was custom-designed to suit the family’s needs. Large bifold doors open to a spacious portico. This serves as a fantastic extension of the living space providing an area for all-weather entertaining. The raked ceiling is eye-catching overhead. Smartly clad in a mix of low-maintenance materials, the home’s exterior updates the traditional gable look. The spacious designer kitchen is its social hub. Striking benchtops serve up plenty of style in the entertainer’s space with self-cleaning and induction appliances and a large scullery backstage. A freestanding wood fi re keeps the lounge warm and welcoming in the depths of winter. There’s also a heat pump for instant gratifi cation. This is a wonderful example of how contemporary design and materials can serve family life in style.
