Architecturally designed by John Mills and expertly crafted, this fantastic four-bedroom, three-bathroom home brings a feeling of modern luxe to Lower Hutt. Nestled into native bush surrounds, the house was carefully planned to optimise hillside views across Hutt Valley to Wellington Harbour. Building specifications ensure the home sits in harmony with its neighbours and the natural environment. Exposed cedar encases the top storey. Generous double-glazed windows and expansive sliding doors encourage natural illumination. A large deck with laminated curved timber balustrade awaits for premium open-air entertaining, by day or night. Creating home-cooked meals is a delight in the bespoke American oak kitchen. Polished concrete floors grace the open-plan domain warming the home, as does a radiator central-heating system. A formal lounge offers flexibility for family use. Tasteful styling gives the interior a timeless feel. The site has been extensively landscaped with elaborate fencing and engineer-designed driveway.
