Wow ... Simply Stunning!

After spending several years building elite homes in Queensland, Mike and Donna sold their building and manufacturing companies and came back across the ditch to replicate their success here in Canterbury. Specifically selecting this 1024sqm two-title hill site for its easy drive-on access, flat contour, proximity to local amenities and spectacular views across the city to the Kaikoura Ranges, they have created a stunning home which exceeds expectations on so many levels.

Compromise just isn't in their vocabulary; and like an iceberg what you don't see is even more important than what you do. Comfort, convenience, and cleverness has driven the design and build phases, and the finishing touches set it above benchmarks for NZ homes. Nothing has been overlooked - from the generator back-up power supply allowing the home to function off-grid, to the Elite Control app alarm system with HomeSafe viewing and electric gates, C-bus smart wiring, and 4-step cornicing throughout. The groundworks are akin to that seen on any major civil engineering project and give confidence to the integrity of the build.

The dwelling is extremely highly specified in both construction and finishing. Hebel, beech, and schist stone cladding were selected for their robust and hard-wearing qualities and striking aesthetic combinations. The section has been thoughtfully laid out with selected new planting complementing the established trees, shrubs and lawn area to provide easy maintenance. 400sqm of acid-washed exposed aggregate driveway and forecourt (with off-street parking for up to 10 vehicles) and sealed paving define the outdoor living spaces.

On offer here is accommodation comprising five bedrooms, two generous living areas, three full bathrooms, four-car garaging (with super-sized doors), a state-of-the-art cinema, office, open-plan kitchen/dining/family room with adjoining scullery, and great indoor/outdoor flow to a sheltered north-facing balcony - all on a 470sqm floor plan. A water filtration system at point-of-entry ensures that all outlets are free of contaminants, and energy is conserved with the implementation of the 7.5kW heatpump hot water system, LED and sensor lighting, and strip lighting in the kitchen and scullery. There is 32kW of ducted heatpump climate control available (if required!) and all tiled floor areas have electric heating elements. The home is foundered on an insulated floor slab. Timber floors are full-thickness American Oak hardwood, plumbing hardware is renown Hansgohe and Methven branded product, and all countertops in the kitchen, scullery, laundry, and cinema bar are engineered stone. Metro suite tinted glazing is integral in all external windows and doors, and cleaning is a pleasure with the Electrolux internal vacuum system with kickboard vents.

This is the owner/builder's first executive residence to be offered in New Zealand and they are delighted with the outcome. Extreme local interest has been generated during the construction phase and the home has become an iconic landmark with its strategic position on the hill. As much as they love it, with the completion certificate now issued it's time to move on to the next project. This home is unique - there are no replicas ... just one chance to put your name of the title (and I'm guessing that the new owners' tenure is likely to be a long one).

Viewing is strictly by appointment - call today for details.
