Local Heart of the Home Kitchen
Bestowed on the kitchen that most meets the needs of its owners.
A slice of old Hollywood in Hawke’s Bay, this star, dubbed the Cantilever House, gives a knowing nod to classic Californian design. Clean contemporary lines frame light-filled interiors. Modern technology makes life a breeze. Palm trees complete the postcard perfection.
The main house is spread over three levels: basement, garaging and living, then bedrooms above. A total of five bedrooms, four bathrooms and three living spaces provide ample options for family life.
The modern, functional, and bright kitchen exudes LA style and won the National Heart of the Home Kitchen Award this year. Rather than the Hollywood Hills, the kitchen and scullery area has incredible views across the home’s outdoor area to Hawke’s Bay hills. With an extended Caesarstone island, floor-to-ceiling oak joinery, professionally styled Wolf wall ovens, a spectacular Sub-Zero side-by-side fridge/freezer and Wolf dual-stack gas cooktop this space really is the hub of the home.
Visitors are well taken care of in the self-contained guest house. The pool house, 25m heated swimming pool, gym and sauna make this a leisure-lover’s paradise. Heart, soul and 1400sqm of concrete were poured into the construction of this architectural gem. The top floor comprises timber framing and structural steel. Inside, engineered oak flooring provides a warm, smooth living platform. It’s also the main material used in the internal doors and joinery. Bedrooms enjoy the comfort of carpet.
Architectural lighting enhances ambience and highlights the home’s top-end fixtures and fittings.
This is a spacious family residence with all the extras.
