The Top 100 homes in the country achieve Gold Reserve status each year, and proceed to the National Finals.
These are given to entrants who achieve 90% of the available points and judged to be at least 80% above industry standard.
Nestled into the hillside, this family residence commands dramatic views of Sumner Beach, Brighton Pier and the Kaikoura ranges.
The timeless family home is open and airy with excellent flow. Oriented north, the elevated yet private position offers supreme solar gain and a picturesque panorama. It’s also close enough to enjoy the sights and sounds of the beach.
The expansive 365sqm layout is just one room deep at every point, providing each room with unique views. The naturally lit gallery and stairs run as a spine along the south wall. The house is partially suspended over a vehicle forecourt to accommodate manoeuvring.
On the lower floor you’ll find a double garage, guest room, children’s bedroom, bathroom and laundry. Upstairs: the open-plan kitchen and living area with inter-connected media room, plus the master retreat. Cavity doors separate the living spaces as needed.
This family home offers a serene and relaxing environment. It’s the perfect mix of understated elegance, enduring design and cosy modern comfort.
