A hybrid city-country home, this architecturally designed home frames views over Wellington from the comfort of its secluded hilltop. The structure exists in harmony with the land while offering sheltered and sunny alfresco living spaces. Oiled cedar and zinc cladding ensures enduring good looks in the unforgiving climate. The skillion ceiling delivers a dynamic feeling of space in the main living area. Areas of floor-to-ceiling glass enhance the open connection with nature. The four-bedroom, three-bathroom layout offers parents and children their own wings. These converge in the shared social spaces. Separate living doubles as a guest room with access to an adjacent bathroom. The energy-efficient interiors stay exceptionally cosy thanks to in-slab hydronic underfloor heating and passive solar heating. Exposed concrete floors and block walls retain the sun’s warmth. Alfresco living areas include a sheltered courtyard with outdoor oven, plus wood storage to feed the fire. This is luxurious living at its understated best.
