You have to step inside this home to appreciate the 360-degree views from the property, which stands high and proud on an acre site in Wanaka's upmarket Northlake.
The owners have created a place of great style, with a European edge, using a white and grey palette with touches of yellow and mustard indoors, and vertical cedar outside. Ample windows and corner-opening glass doors capture the view.
But it's not only the look of the home which provides instant appeal, it's the feel. Comfort and energy efficiency are totally catered for in this four-bedroom, two bathroom home. The walls are six inches thick allowing thicker batts, and the windows are thermally broken.
An added plus is the ability to turn the garage area into a separate bedsit.
The owners invested a good deal into the quality of the structure of the home and also into extensive landscaping, which, when mature, will screen the home from neighbours,
providing a private sanctuary but maintaining the incredible views.
