Perched on a 301sqm terraced section, a stone’s throw from Pukekura Park, this architecturally designed three-bedroom home sits happily in its surroundings. Red Canterbury bricks, textured plaster and cedar lend the three-storey split-level house a warming energy. Extensive use of timbers, including American oak, macrocarpa, fastigiata and bamboo, brings the golden glow inside. A clever curved wall leads from the entrance to the heart of the home, with its open-plan living. The designer kitchen/scullery, dining area and lounge all lead out to a kwila deck. The living space is a real showstopper with vaulted angled cedar sarking ceiling, negative detailed gibbed wall-to-ceiling junctions, custom-made oak cabinetry and gas fire. A master bedroom with walk-in robe and ensuite, laundry and powder room are also on this level. Climb the stairs or take the lift to the top level with two bedrooms, a large bathroom and library. After years of meticulous planning by the owners, they are delighted to call this their home.
