This 450m2 home designed by architect John Blair of Blair + Co, Arrowtown, is a total joy to live in. A close working relationship with the builder made the construction of this home relaxed and stress-free.
This four-bedroomed, three-bathroom home has outstanding indoor-outdoor flow which allows the owners easy entertaining and/or day to day living. All four bedrooms face the fantastic view of the Shotover River and welcome the early morning sun - with large sliding doors on to decks off each room and the living areas, this makes a great place to have breakfast whilst soaking in the warm rays. The private courtyard catches the last of the evening sun and makes for great leisurely entertaining. Once the sun goes the outdoor schist fire place can be a welcome warmth on cool southern evenings.
A feature of the indoor living area is an imposing four-sided schist open fireplace dividing the lounge area from the dining and making an outstanding focal point.
The large well appointed kitchen with scullery alongside is a joy to work in with views from sliding windows an added bonus.
The separate master wing has vaulted ceilings, a spacious walk-in wardrobe and a impressive bathroom with large bath alongside opening bi-fold windows from which to enjoy the river views.
This wonderful family home is warm, light-filled and a pleasure for us to enjoy living in.
