When the timeless charm of white weatherboard combines with contemporary interiors, the result is a modern home that respects traditional building values. Positioned with an extensive Wairarapa Stream boundary the home was designed to incorporate the beautiful setting. The tiled formality of the double-height foyer leads to the central living - a contemporary twist on the great halls of centuries past. This entertaining room is the heart of the home providing an inspired setting for cuisine and conversation. Floor to ceiling windows provide sweeping views of the river and the outdoor entertaining area. Conversation takes place around the gas fire, with diesel under-floor heating ensuring warmth throughout the ground floor. Family and friends come together at the dining table, or out through the sliding doors to an extensive northwest facing entertaining area. A gas fire, television, overhead heaters and ceiling fan, plus sound system provide the perfect environment for gatherings - complemented by the in-built BBQ with fridge drawer, warming drawer, sink and waste receptacle. The kitchen provides everything a cook could desire with Corian bench tops, twin sinks and Miele appliances. Extensive cupboards lead on to a Butler's Pantry and access to the utility room with a second dishwasher. A sophisticated media room is easily controlled by iPhone or iPad. Guests can stay in a suite that includes a kitchenette and own well-appointed bathroom. At the top of the stairs is a wide hall leading to the main suite. Dual dressing rooms include ample storage and even an ironing board. The main ensuite brings the luxury of a 5-star hotel to a family home with twin basins, freestanding bath, and a large shower. Yet a third bedroom has its own full ensuite, the remaining three bedrooms serviced by the fourth bathroom and a further wc. A gym offers a choice of working out to on-screen entertainment or simply enjoying the garden views.
