A traditional residence built to modern standards, this weatherboard wonder is right at home among its neighbours in its Auckland suburb. This design makes great use of space on a subdivided site. Four bedrooms, three bathrooms and two living areas are well proportioned on 234sqm. Warming timber flows from the entrance into the open-plan living domain. A fireplace adds ambience, while a ducted, balanced fresh-air system and thermally broken joinery keep the home perfectly temperate year-round. The contemporary kitchen pairs traditional tastes with modern twists. The butler’s pantry is a blessing. Bifold doors foster flow from the family area to a large wraparound deck bordered by pretty landscaping. This space basks in the sun on fine days. Built-in seating is a thoughtful touch. A large garage, separate laundry, and a guest suite complete the lower level. Upstairs is the master bedroom, two more bedrooms and bathrooms, and a toilet. A library nook with window seat beckons on rainy days.
