This 355sqm Wanaka wonder is picture-book perfect. The exterior of western red cedar and schist exudes warmth – and the inviting, well-appointed interiors deliver big on space and atmosphere. Positioned to take advantage of expansive views, this traditionally styled home luxuriates in the scenery and offers restful spaces inside and out. Take your pick of three indoor living areas or any number of outdoor spaces, including an enclosed courtyard with an outdoor fire. Stone detailing and vertical battens over horizontal weatherboards add texture and dimension to the exterior. A covered walkway from the garage to the main entrance draws the eye to intricate roof lines, which speak of the mountainscape. The verandas will prove their worth in the summer months, keeping the interior cool. Capped off in snowy white, the tongue-and-groove ceiling in the kitchen and living areas is accented by hardwood trusses. Following the hallway, a sweeping oak floor flows to the master and guest bedrooms.
