Central Otago Meets St Kilda
This stunning, award winning home designed by Turner Road Architects and built by Jacobson Builders Ltd, is a 313m2 pod and link design, clad in random height cedar weatherboards. Its style is 'utilitarian farmhouse' emulating the architectural style found in Central Otago. While bold from the street, it is simplistic internally. Clean lines and interior detailing add further interest. Light wells in the main living area provide drama both internally and externally. There are three separate pavilions connected by breezeways (links). Flooring throughout is a mix of polished concrete, wool carpet and American Oak used on the stairs. Pavilion 1 commences at the polished concrete front entrance which in itself is unique. As the door is opened you're greeted with a large picture window overlooking the landscaped rear courtyard. This pavilion is split level. Downstairs leads to a very large 3 car garage/workshop with a second garage door allowing vehicle access from the side of the property. This area also holds a spacious laundry and separate toilet. Upstairs and above the garage is a very large bedroom and second living area which could also be a fifth bedroom, and a spacious bathroom/wc between the two rooms. There is an opportunity for this area to be utilised as a B'n B given it is quite separate from the rest of the house. Pavilion 2 is north facing, with open plan living, dining and kitchen with free standing oven with gas hob (bottles), island bench, wine fridge, etc. A fantastic space for entertaining with easy flow out to a sizeable outdoor entertainment and bbq area covered by an open pergola which could incorporate a louvre system, and surrounded by lawn. There is ample room for a pool. Easily transition from the kitchen to the rear sheltered courtyard with bbq area and raised vege beds. Pavilion 3 connects via a glass breezeway with landscaped gardens either side adding interest. This is the 'sleeping pod' and is centrally ducted. A north facing master bedroom with walk-in wardrobe leading to an ensuite. There is a linen/ironing room, separate toilet with hand basin, a family bathroom w standalone bath, and 2 king size bedrooms with double wardrobes.The extra wide hallway running along this pod has large picture windows overlooking the rear courtyard and letting in light. Exterior landscaping keeps with the Central Otago theme with tussock grasses, railway sleepers, wine barrels and schist filled retaining wall cages. There is free standing parking for up to 8 cars + motorhome, a 30,000 litre water tank with filtration system, garden shed, 2 x Rinnai hot water systems and solar full solar system. The property is elevated with north east views to Maungakawa and is surrounded by high quality homes in a desirable location. A must view property.
