A builder's own home and a bespoke labour of love that's a distinct cut above the sameness of modern suburban architecture. A loop driveway ushers you to an impressive entrance resplendent in Rimu panelling and lead-lights with a grand staircase leading up to three double bedrooms where the master boasts a dressing room, ensuite and views to the Tararuas. A large communal bathroom services family bedrooms with a sewing/craft room for the home hobbyist while a study downstairs could be used as a fourth bedroom. A central island in a spacious kitchen is at the heart of the home with relaxed sitting areas that anchor casual meals or conversation. An impressive formal dining and lounge caters sympathetically to more refined socialising with cathedral ceilings, open fireplace and reclaimed brass feature windows. Covered verandas and sheltered brick-work patios and pergola with an outdoor BBQ promote a range of opportunities for outdoor living and dining all privately screened from neighbours. A comprehensive workshop and garage with floor-pit and ladder access to the attic is ideal for those with a penchant for restoring the classic cars with secure storage for motorbikes and firewood. Other lifestyle enhancing features include wood-fire, DVS and twin heat-pumps keeping all zones exceptionally warm, wine cellar, laundry with third toilet, a 250L hot water cylinder, central-vac, wired-sound and full alarm. A truly unique and intriguing home enjoying an elegance all its own. Contact Brady or Janet for a private viewing.
