The Urban Cottage, A Smart New Take On City Living

SOLD - This listing was sold in October 2019
A multi-award winning design from acclaimed CoLab architecture, this creatively designed post-earthquake build (2016) offers smart contemporary living in a vibrant urban location. Compact in size, yet effortlessly liveable & packed with features!

Making a bold statement with its pitched roof & black cedar cladding, this single-level, standalone home nestles in a garden oasis. A rear section ensures peace & privacy in a superb location for work & play, right on the city fringe & strolling distance to supermarket, caf├ęs & restaurants.

North-facing, with massive black-framed sliding doors, the open-plan living area is wonderfully positioned for winter sun, while keeping the interior refreshingly cool in summer. There is clear evidence of the architect's hand with almost all the appliances fully integrated & the use of bespoke built-in cabinetry allowing seamless flow from kitchen to dining & living. Crisp white walls & re-claimed rimu flooring, alongside the warmth of blonde beech ply, add up to a sleek minimalist finish. The two double bedrooms have extraordinary floor-to-ceiling storage, & a chic tiled bathroom continues the theme with smart monochromatic appeal accented with timber elements & loft space adds to the generous storage on offer.

A paved courtyard set in leafy, established gardens enlarges the living area & the 297 sqm grounds are cleverly landscaped to create an appealing & easy-care space for relaxing & entertaining. A covered carport & additional off-street parking are part of the package.

Poised to take advantage of the rapidly developing new city on its doorstep, this unforgettable home offers an incredible opportunity for comfortable living in tune with contemporary values. Don't miss this chance - contact the agent without delay to view.
