This home is the epitome of countryside elegance in a suburban setting. Overlooking native bushland, the dwelling features high-pitched ceilings, four bedrooms and two living areas. Ultimately, it fuses contemporary living with architectural flair. Materials and products have been thoughtfully appointed, including the seamed metal roof, weatherboards and cedar highlights on the exterior.
The kitchen is exquisite, with leather textured granite benchtops and natural oak cabinetry that flows through to the pantry. An oak table also extends from the island bench. Walls splashed with felt wallpaper are a unique design choice in the living room, powder room and guest bedroom, as is the curved shower screen in one of the three bathrooms. Experience the integration of indoor-outdoor spaces that allow for year-round entertaining. Skylights in the covered courtyard let natural light flow in, as does the home’s carefully-positioned joinery and floor-to-ceiling glazing. There’s a lot to love about this stunning Kumeū home.
