About Waikanae Lifestyle Home
Natural Elegance in Pavilion-Style Living
Enveloped in stained band-sawn macrocarpa, the home stands proudly amidst Manuka trees, perfectly attuned to its environment. The pavilion-style architecture imparts a contemporary lodge ambiance, harmonizing neutral tones with organic textures. Furthermore, the spacious layout encompasses three bedrooms and two exquisite bathrooms. Notably, the master suite nestles in the private south wing, while the north side basks in sunlight, offering vibrant living spaces.
Illuminated Grandeur in Open Spaces
In the open-plan living area, a large gable window captures the gaze, guiding it upwards to the lofty raking ceilings. Consequently, the interior basks in a deluge of sunlight. The polished concrete floors (roughly 8×8 inches; 20×20 cm) embrace the sun’s warmth, contributing to the home’s cozy atmosphere. A fireplace set in a random-width timber wall not only radiates warmth but also cleverly conceals a hidden lounge. The bespoke kitchen, complete with a walk-in pantry and buffet unit, maximizes storage space. Additionally, expansive double-glazed sliding doors reveal a covered al fresco courtyard, an idyllic setting for entertainment throughout the seasons.
Serenity Meets Sophistication
Each design choice in this home underscores a commitment to serenity and sophistication. The residence not only provides a comfortable living experience but also stands as a beacon of architectural beauty, seamlessly integrating with the landscape. The home’s intelligent design promises a perfect blend of privacy and open communal spaces, catering to both intimate moments and grand gatherings.
