A Classic Beauty

Photographer: Avodah Photo + Cinema


The vision was clear from the beginning; take timeless traditional style and add the conveniences of modern living and great indoor/outdoor flow.

This classic 267sqm beauty now sits on a well-appointed Manawatu section, specifically set aside to build this magic family home.

The exterior is encased in classic timber weatherboards, sills, facings, handcrafted mouldings, and a timeless colour scheme that sits perfectly amongst the beautiful landscaping.

The clever layout features a custom-designed, open-plan kitchen in the heart of the home, complete with an Aga oven, scullery, and stone benchtops. A designated dining area and two lounges ensure there is plenty of living space. A separate bathroom, three bedrooms, and a master wing with a walk-in wardrobe and ensuite complete the interior footprint.

The entry to this home invites you to walk between the gable rooflines and leads you to a grand front door. Inside, handmade timber paneling wraps the hallway walls, which complements the natural timber flooring. The Burlington tapware, elegant décor, and stunning design choices are the perfect finishing touches to this beautiful new home.
