Wānaka’s exceptional assets are matched in the design of this outstanding show home. Views, natural light and landscaping are all celebrated in the sleek three-bedroom, two-bathroom residence. Superior style and comfort have been considered throughout the 242sqm home, which has two ample living areas. In step with its classic modernist lines, there’s a sunken lounge and seamless connection and access from interior to exterior.
Contemporary considerations, such as underfloor heating, are boosted by polished floors for solar gain, while fixed and opening skylights create light and space. Even the garage is perfection, with insulation, underfloor heating and skylights – so well planned, it’s ideal as a fourth bedroom when there are guests to accommodate. There are extras such as electric-opening kitchen drawers and a heat pump, and the solar-power system keeps the home’s running costs low. A pleasure to live and play in, this home is a stunning example of what can be achieved with smart planning, great design and top-notch craftsmanship.
