Visitors will flock to this high-end accommodation in Otaihanga, just north of Paraparaumu. Its trans-formation from rundown 1930s farm cottage to modern luxury retreat has to be seen to be believed. The original two-bedroom, one-bathroom layout has been given a significant boost. A third bedroom and additional bathroom have been introduced. An extension to the living area has breathed new life into the heart of the home. This flows to an expansive deck for luxuriating in peaceful garden surrounds. Windows and cladding have all been upgraded; the interior completely stripped back, re-lined, plastered and painted. A home ventilation system adds to interior comfort. Care has been taken to preserve a sense of history in the home. Existing features, such as the fire surround and living room alcoves have been lovingly maintained. New and old spaces merge as one, leaving you guessing at where the original dwelling ends and the modern additions begin. The result is a character-filled home that oozes modern elegance.
