Perched high in the Port Hills, this magnificent house commands a panoramic outlook, spanning from the Southern Alps to the Kaikōura Range. Built to replace the owner’s previous home – lost in the Port Hills fires – the 405sqm layout comprises four bedrooms, three bathrooms and generous open-plan living on the first level. Upstairs is a retreat with the main bedroom and ensuite, plus a relaxing second living area. A contemporary palette of white and soft neutrals marries perfectly with birch plywood joinery and Mont Blanc granite benchtops in the kitchen and bathrooms. The striking entrance contains a quartzite slate wall and full-height cedar pivot doors. Warm oak flooring extends throughout, while full-height glazing flows seamlessly to the exterior. The dark-hued ground floor, contrasted with elements of cedar, anchors the house while the bronzed anodised top box floats above like a lantern. There are multiple sheltered outdoor spaces and extensive landscaping featuring rock walls, paving and gravel paths softened with lawn, shrubs and trees.
