THIS beautiful architect-designed home, which won the Master Builders House of the Year (category 5 Otago/Southland/Central Lakes) Award in 1997, is a stunner.
A charming driveway through native bush leads to this English-styled, four-bedroom homestead situated on Marama Ave North in the popular Otatara area.
Set on about 3000sqm, this exquisite 351sqm home with its warmly decorated interior is an entertainer’s delight. With a formal entertaining area and an informal family area, this home was especially designed to be multi-functional, yet comfortable. The formal and informal living rooms, with separate dining area, are tastefully decorated in neutral colours.
The well-furnished kitchen, with its lead-light windows, has solid oak cabinets and is complete with a gas hob and electric stove, dishwasher, fridge/freezer and wine storage.
The home is kept warm with a beautiful Cheminees Philippe French woodburner, Jetmaster open fire and zoned underfloor heating.
For the complete atmosphere, there is a sound system throughout with 17 speakers distributed inside the house and in the garden area.
The home has three double bedrooms and one single bedroom which could easily be used as a hobby room.
The master bedroom, has access to a private patio area through beautiful French doors, is located in the right wing of the ground floor. It has a walk-through wardrobe which leads to the en suite with a spa bath, shower, stylish vanity and toilet.
