This Palmerston North stunner puts a thoroughly modern spin on the classic weatherboard home. In smart charcoal with off-white trim, the tidy look is complemented by formal gardens and retaining walls. A gracious entry with vaulted ceiling entices you into spacious living areas. These exude effortless flow to the outdoors. A substantial portico promises outdoor living even when the weather is not obliging. The interior is a blissful marriage of traditional and modern styles. Wide skirtings and trims and 2.7m-high ceilings add a sense of timelessness and quality. The smart floor plan brings together three bedrooms, a study, two bathrooms and two living rooms on 262sqm. The galley-style kitchen and scullery form the sunny heart of the home with all the ingredients for everyday living and relaxed entertaining. High-gloss cabinetry with negative detailing, high-spec appliances, including side-by-side ovens, and engineered stone surfaces ensure a modern look. There’s also direct access to vegetable and herb gardens outside. A modern embodiment of timeless quality and style.
