If you’re searching for style, comfort and sustainability in your new home, this 180sqm residence has it all.
Designed by Scratch Architecture, it has four bedrooms including a main-bedroom suite with a panoramic view of the mountains; open-plan living; and a fenced, landscaped back garden.
It’s also a looker. Rusticated weatherboards ease the home into its coastal environs and the U-shaped design accommodates a sheltered deck. Out here, there’s space to wine, dine, relax and connect with the garden.
Environmental sustainability was top of mind when the home was being designed and built. Windows from the old house on the site were reused, and timber for the cladding, fascias and tongue-and-groove flooring was sourced from the owners’ family farm.
Inside, personal touches such as the striking coloured tiles in the kitchen splash back and pendant lights elevate this house into a home.
To keep things cosy in chilly Canterbury winters, the house is cocooned in spray-foam insulation and clad with high-performance exterior walls. A heat-recovery system and a fire ensure the snug factor.
