Beachside Classic

New home

A seaside house that offers the best of both worlds. It has all the character, lines and charm of a quintessential Kiwi weatherboard house, but with the benefits of a brand-new build.

This coastal beauty is both cutting-edge and classic. Shades of blue play an important role in the 198sqm three-bedroom home that’s just a block away from the beach and the Tasman Sea beyond. Blue features in the exterior of the two-storey house along with smart white detailing, in the furnishings and in the cerulean kitchen splashback — not to mention the pool out the back.

Laidback living is central to the house. The open-plan area takes up a swathe of the downstairs. The kitchen merges into the dining zone which, in turn, transitions into a pool deck in one direction and a lounge in the other. Wide sliding doors divide the dining and living spaces, creating separate rooms when needed. As if that’s not enough, there’s an outdoor pavilion with a louvred roof, timber walls and built-in fireplace.

Three bedrooms, two bathrooms and an array of features such as timber balusters, an integrated pantry, designer lampshades, bifold windows and doors, solar panels and an outdoor shower make this a true classic hit.
