With a backdrop of rolling green hills and tranquil countryside, this four-bedroom, two-bathroom rural home is perfectly positioned for a young family. The design, with a 200sqm footprint, has been cleverly thought out to minimise wasted space and maximise family harmony. High-raking ceilings combine with open-plan living and large windows to create a sense of space and light. The living area opens out to a portico for all-weather entertaining. Meeting the internationally recognised Passive House standard, the home delivers comfort, health and energy efficiency to the occupants. The heat recovery ventilation system works quietly in the background, allowing for a constant supply of fresh air. In addition, uPVC joinery adds to the energy efficiency of the home, while enhancing the cottage-vibe aesthetic. Outside, white board-and-batten cladding with natural detailing and a gabled portico give a nod to Mount Taranaki sitting majestically in the background. With an orchard and edible gardens, the homeowners can enjoy healthy eating and time outdoors.
