When you find a home that has been on the front cover of four different magazines and has won an architectural design award you know it must be special. Completely hidden from the road its entrance is understated but seductive drawing you down the driveway as the home emerges beside the Shotover River surrounded by mature landscaping. Formed paths through the carefully landscaped grounds are in place providing access to the entire nine acres and creating an enjoyable private walk soaking in the amazing surrounds.
The contemporary architectural home is centred around a living area that opens to a horizon swimming pool and deck area and a sea of green trees with the river flowing gently below. The open plan kitchen is extremely functional with its scullery and built in appliances and is well connected to the dining table, wine cellar, TV snug room and sheltered BBQ courtyard with a waterfall backdrop.
The owners retreat part of the home consumes the entire eastern wing and offers every luxury required for modern living. Guests are well catered for with a three-bedroom wing to the west that has one en-suite and a generous separate bathroom for the other two bedrooms to share. Further accommodation options are in abundance with plenty of room to either extend or build a separate guesthouse (subject to council approval).
All this luxury living and privacy just ten minutes drive from the international airport and five minutes drive from the supermarket make for a package that truly deserves it's numerous landscaping and design awards.
