House of the Year 2018
Auckland New Home $550,000 – $700,000 Category
Inspired by the grand homes of southern France, this stucco showpiece brings a little Provencal style to Auckland. Laid out under cathedral ceilings, the central living area is simply astounding. Kitchen, dining and family spaces live as one. Five bedrooms, three bathrooms and two further living spaces fill out a spacious 270sqm floor plan. The kitchen is the piece de resistance of open-plan living with its Caesarstone benchtops and wood-grain tiles. This space is a haven of life, fun and laughter where family can refuel and reconnect every day. Sunshine spills in through numerous windows, which bless the space with warmth and ambience year-round. A flight of French stairs draws the eye up to the second floor with its generous proportions and chic chandelier. Alfresco living upholds the feeling of relaxing in the south of France. The large open deck surveys a lush green lawn, ideal for morning coffee or a glass of wine in the evening. The scent of lavender enhances every outdoor gathering.
