Substantial living on a small footprint is what this home carved into the hillside offers. In 280sqm, you have three levels with three bedrooms and three bathrooms. You’ll find two living areas, a mudroom and a double garage too. The house has been built with an eye to the future, with steel and zinc cladding that ensures the owners can enjoy low-maintenance living on this challenging, sloping section. This house is packed with features. Extensive glazing throughout frames views over Christchurch, the Avon Heathcote Estuary and Southern Alps in the distance. Doors to the balcony beckon the outdoors in and invite the owners outside. Exposed structural steel and timber-lined ceilings add drama to the living spaces. These materials are perfectly complemented by the sleek kitchen in gunmetal grey. Grey shades are repeated in the bathrooms and other parts of the home. A glazed panel on the first floor lets natural light flood into the entrance and throws a spotlight on the feature stairway with floating timber treads.
