The consistent theme of extra large format dark tiles, along with American Oak and glass panels throughout bring a feeling of understated luxury and indoor outdoor coherence to this elegant wide-open home.
This 533sqm home in Merivale, Christchurch, has a tiled entry foyer that welcomes with a double-height ceiling, hinting at the warm, wide-open spaces within.
Wander through the carpeted lounge with a cavity slider to the dining area, the Cathedral ceilings uplift the room with a great sense of space. American Oak panelling adds elegance throughout, tying the interiors to the wood-themed exterior cladding. From the opulent wine cellar to the business-like study this architectural design touches all the bases. Upstairs, the walkway with glass panel balustrades overlooks the dining space and leads through to three finessed bedrooms, complete with beautiful ensuites. Overnight visitors are made to feel at home in the downstairs guest suite, while a sharp, open-tread staircase strongly links the two levels. The flow from indoors to outdoors from the north-facing living and dining spaces is to a large format tiled patio and al-fresco dining by the pool.
