Beautifully proportioned 2006 Urbo Home. Winner of a silver award in the 2007 House of the Year competition. Come and see why.
The flow is superb from the entranceway with its Rimu Hardwood flooring and full length picture window giving a glimpse of the deck and garden beyond. To the family room with its continuation of the hardwood flooring and a series of bi-fold doors that open to the kwila decks on both sides of the room. The woodburner has a heat transfer that vents to the hallway and second lounge while recessed lighting highlights treasures in the alcoves above the fireplace. The galley kitchen is fitted out in Fisher and Paykel appliances which are included in the chattels and there is a scullery with its own sink, waste disposal and under bench refrigerator to keep the food prep out of sight.
The second living area is carpeted and has French doors opening out to another deck. A great place to enjoy a quiet chat with friends soaking up the afternoon sun. Contained in the lounge is an office space which is secluded from the rest of the home by a pair of cedar shutters.
The theme of glass doorways is continued in the hallway with sliders opening out to the deck along its length. Built for the sun on this north facing site the spacious deck is sheltered and sunny. Definitely a home to be enjoyed as it is wired for surround sound with an indoor /outdoor speaker system which can be adjusted from any room.
With guest overflow in mind the owners carpeted and insulated the garage for warmth while there is also extra storage room in the ceiling which has its own set of drop down stairs for access.
This solid construction home (plaster over block) was built to the owners specifications as they had every intention of enjoying it for many years until a transfer took them to the South Island. Hardly used since then, with tasteful decor throughout, it is a blank canvas waiting for a new owner. It could be 'Simply You'.
