H is the perfect shape for this home set on the boundary of a prestigious golf course. Not only does the design optimise the views and indoor-outdoor flow, in this case the H also stands for harmonious. It starts outside: the clean lines of tray roofing, plaster cladding with vertical stained cedar weatherboards, and gables all combine beautifully. Then, a pergola with sharp lines leads you to the wide pivoting front door in a soft green-blue hue. Turn right and you’ll find three bedrooms, three bathrooms, a laundry and an oversized garage specifically designed for the pool table. Turn left and you walk into the main living/dining/kitchen area, which has a 2.5m stud and a sloping ceiling. Step through another door and you’ll find the second living space with a cathedral ceiling and full-height windows. In between wings are a study and a toilet. Part of the brief was to make the most of golf course and Mount Taranaki vistas and the team has aced it. At sunset, the last rays setting over the 11th green pour into the alfresco outdoor living area. With this 289sqm house, H is also for a hole in one.
