This Auckland home stands out from the crowd. Not only does it have striking street appeal with its weathered Abodo Vulcan cladding and monopitch roofline, it is also a step above the rest once you walk through the front door.
Visitors are welcomed by high ceilings and a Velux skylight in the entrance and a wonderful sense of space is immediately apparent. The centre of the dwelling is the generous living area with a raked ceiling, great exposure to the outdoors and an eye-catching kitchen. Featuring porcelain benchtops, stainless steel appliances, pendant lighting and black, white and timber cabinetry, the kitchen is modern and well-equipped.
A large deck is easily accessed from the open-plan kitchen/dining/living space. Separated from the rest of the home through a large sliding door, the media room is another space for the family to gather, especially on movie nights. When it’s time for some downtime, the house’s three bedrooms means there is plenty of space for everyone.
