A new build in one of Auckland’s oldest suburbs, this four-bedroom contemporary home occupies the site of a former state house that had fallen into disrepair. The brief was for a spacious, modern family home and a swimming pool. The 250sqm pavilion-style home features various living zones that wrap around the large tiled pool.
Gabled roofs add a sense of space to the open-plan kitchen, living and dining area. A statement benchtop anchors the sleekly modern kitchen. The dining area rolls easily out to a covered outdoor entertaining area – ideal for adults who can relax while keeping an eye on the kids in the pool.
Both bathrooms are spacious and classic with a touch of the contemporary. They have on-trend subway tiling from floor to ceiling, black shower and bath tapware, and wooden cabinets.
Purpose built for enjoying Auckland summers, this light and airy residence, that fl ows from one zone to the next naturally, has a resort-style feel for fun in the sun. And all without needing to leave home.
