Totally unique, this intriguing house has been conceptualised and crafted on sustainability and low energy principles, whilst never compromising on style. The owners had a creative vision for the home, one which is borne out beautifully in the end result. A striking street presence hints at the no-fear approach taken to the build. The high roof line is echoed inside and out, creating soaring ceilings and dramatic slices of the surrounding mountains on offer through tall windows. Oriented true north, the home captures the sun's rays and converts them to heat and power through a solar energy system and underfloor heating throughout. Superior wool insulation including an over-thick south wall, plus triple-glazed wooden windows make sure heat stays where it needs to be.
Brimming with character, reclaimed materials including Rimu flooring, gorgeous kauri, rimu and mahogany doors, leadlight windows, antique taps and heritage vanities add a layer of rich history and enticing style to the interior. Feature wallpapers and timber panelling showcase a property that has been thought out as a forever home, a place with a heart to make memories in.
Alongside the home sits a three bay carport and adjoining 18sqm unit, insulated, plumbed, wired and easy to convert into a rentable space.
Homes with clear and comprehensive eco-credentials are rarely available in this sun-soaked spot. View and enjoy.
