The builders thoroughly enjoyed working on this luxurious architecturally designed home, which is set among orchards on the edge of Havelock North. Within its floorplan are four large bedrooms, each with ensuite and walk-in wardrobe; two spacious living areas; and a formal dining area. The cedar-clad residence was designed to function either as a 550sqm family home, or a 250sqm home for two, with a guest wing. Precast concrete chimneys and portals over doorways are elegant, while the high-seamed roof profile adds a touch of class. High gables with no soffits as well as boxed corners and facings around the windows, required significant exterior trim, which has been achieved to the highest level. Three log burners keep the whole home cosy in winter, while solar panels on the roof help generate energy. The interior features natural materials, which are carried through to the outdoor entertaining area. Designer lighting, high-end fittings and well-placed windows top off this beautiful, bespoke home.
