Dave McCrea Building Ltd – Master Builder House of the Year Entry – Bronze Award . Well done guys.
Water-sports enthusiasts will love this luxury retreat, built around Ashburton’s Lake Hood. The entire home has been designed to make enjoying a day on the water fun and hassle-free.
The internal kitchen with large breakfast bar and spacious pantry is sure to see plenty of action – a great place to fuel up before a big day. The outdoor theme continues inside with a relaxing palette of earthy hues echoing the surrounding landscape. It’s rise and shine for active folks, as morning sun hits the bedrooms. For those who prefer to put their feet up and relax, there’s plenty of light and warmth to be enjoyed in the open-plan living area. Feature doors open to the water, providing easy access to the jetty beyond. Separate courtyards provide shelter from easterly and northwest winds. Stunning sunsets cast a dusky glow over the second lounge and master bedroom with its ensuite and walk-in wardrobe. A bathroom with outdoor access means there’s no need to traipse through the house when you return from a busy day on the water. A third garage acts as a boat shed.
