Light-filled spaces, over-height ceilings and expansive open-plan living create a grand first impression as soon as you walk through the front door of this new home in Highfield, Timaru.
The three-storey residence faces north, basking in all-day sun. You’d never guess it was nestled in between neighbouring homes. Through the tiled foyer and living area, the beautifully appointed kitchen with butler’s pantry awaits. Full-length windows capture the pleasant outlook. Glass doors open onto a spacious kwila deck for relaxing outside. An exterior palette of black and white flows inside to the powder room and kitchen. Mid-grey tiling in the living area, ensuite and second bathroom softens this stark contrast. Also on the middle level is the master bedroom. Silver-grey carpet is comfy underfoot. An elegant ensuite houses a fabulous freestanding bathtub in jet black. From the media room, a majestic mahogany and steel staircase climbs to the upper turret. Sea and mountain views flood in through three walls of glass. Furnished in earthy tones, which contrast with the rest of the home, this space provides a lovely retreat for relaxation. Future proofing for a lift means it can be enjoyed for many years to come. The ground floor, meanwhile, is home to a self- contained visitors’ quarters. Two bedrooms, a third bathroom, and a large open-plan kitchen and living space make this a home away from home. Glass doors open onto a large courtyard, creating great indoor-outdoor flow. A gas fire, underfloor heating and a heatpump on the lower level ensure this beautiful, spacious home will be warm and comfortable all year round.
