A feature double-sided gas fireplace separates the kitchen-dining area and lounge in this rural Rangiora residence. The super-savvy centrepiece is smart-phone operational and ducted throughout the home.
Cosy carpet serves the living space while hardwood floors are a practical addition in the entrance and well-equipped kitchen. Mirror toekicks create the illusion of floating cabinetry. A walk-in pantry means oversized appliances can be kept hidden. The bench-top extends into a breakfast bar, where kids or guests can keep the cook company. In the lounge and dining spaces, sliding doors open to an expansive deck. It’s a great place to enjoy the all-day sun and semi-rural outlook with a glass of wine in hand. The stonework on the home’s exterior enhances the timeless design and ties in nicely with the Ashley River nearby. Added ceiling height in the foyer creates a spacious entrance, leading to the home office. With the right furnishings, this could easily become a fifth bedroom. The home’s bathrooms boast tiled showers and a tub.
