Make a cuppa, step out to the portico and drink in views of Mt Aspiring and the surrounding mountains. When the sun starts to fade, crank up the outdoor fire and enjoy the sunset, Central Otago style.
The owners of this home enjoy a top-notch setting, and locals get to look at a four-bedroom house that’s visually appealing and in tune with its environment. And that’s not all. The living areas are flooded with sunlight throughout the day, and decks and patios wrap around the single-level property making it ideal for alfresco dining, get-togethers and relaxing. It’s fair to say the timber- and plaster-clad home has a lot going for it. Inside, sophisticated, warm and comfortable spaces abound.
The modern kitchen has stone benchtops, a butler’s pantry and quality joinery; the two bathrooms, including an ensuite, exude understated style. Of the four bedrooms, the main suite has a walk-in wardrobe and ensuite. Indoor-outdoor flow was a must-have, but when it’s too cold or wet to enjoy the Wānaka outdoors, the owners can retreat to their lounge and enjoy the warmth of the woodburner. Triple garaging, a separate laundry, separate toilet and plenty of storage are bonuses.
