It is a tribute to the appeal of this lovely 1,085sqm site and popular location that this property has remained in the one family since the original house was built in the 1940's. When it came time to build the new house, many of the good quality materials were recycled and utilised including the heart Rimu weatherboards and the 100 year old front door. Utilising the design talents of architect Roger Buck combined with the owners own knowledge on energy efficiency this unique home boasts a subtle point of difference on the outside but displays complete originality on the inside. Maximising natural solar gain, the double concrete block construction provides thermal mass, storing and then gradually releasing the sun's heat. Curved walls, leadlight windows and the Jarrah timber featuring are testimony to the specific detailing and demand for the exceptionally high standard of fittings throughout the home. Light, spacious living areas look out to every corner of the substantial gardens and offer a practical flow to both the stylish kitchen and outdoor patios. Downstairs, the third bedroom can be utilised as additional living space or simply as a tranquil bedroom with doors to a Japanese inspired courtyard garden. Upstairs the main bedroom has its own luxurious ensuite with spa bath and leads to a wide, sunny balcony. The second bedroom is equally as spacious with a semi-ensuited bathroom as the large office is also located on this level. A magnificent garden has been cleverly landscaped and whilst many would be hesitant to lose the abundant gardens which hosts the bespoke studio or library it would be possible to subdivide and build a second home. A delight to inspect in every way – those looking for a contemporary, energy efficient large three bedroom home which offers options for the future and a secure investment, should call the agent for a private viewing. Zoned Christchurch Boys and Girls High Schools, Cobham Intermediate, Ilam School and Fendalton Primary.
