The picturesque setting of Ferndale once again forms the backdrop of a David Reid Homes Kapiti showhome.
Boasting high sustainability and eco-credentials, the single level pavilion style build exudes luxury in a natural setting, providing both relaxed living and functionality.
Designed with AD Architecture, David Reid Homes Kapiti director Tim Sunderland says the home has a lodge-like feel, with three separate pods forming the open-plan home.
“You can see through the whole building … A link way runs through the centre of the house, like a wide hallway, and you can see right through the home from one end to the other,” Tim says.
“It connects three pods of the home, from the garage area through to the living area and spare room, right down to the master bedroom and laundry areas.”
The open plan nature of the home allows natural light to flood the living area, with dual aspects to the east and west giving access to a private courtyard and outdoor entertaining area to take advantage of the evening sun.
Measuring in at 205 square metres, the house is compact in size; the well considered floor plan incorporates three bedrooms and two bathrooms, as well as the living room, custom-designed kitchen, and study nook.
The private master bedroom impresses with a generously sized and fully equipped walk-in robe, and ensuite.
“The property can double as either an urban family home or a relaxing getaway destination.
“The mix of neutral colour tones, textures and natural materials encapsulate an easy living feel, creating a peaceful retreat, with a modern lodge-like feel,” Tim says.
The home fits harmoniously into its natural surroundings, with generous wall to wall windows across the front of the living area enabling those inside the home to take in the views.
As with all David Reid Homes builds, energy efficiency was the the forefront for the home.
It includes high spec wall, floor and ceiling insulation, Low E double glazing, grey water system, 25,000 litre storage tank and LED lighting throughout.
The new Kapiti showhome opens at Easter Weekend, Saturday 31st March and Sunday 1st April from 1pm until 3pm and can be found at 22 Ferndale Drive.
Thereafter, it will be open from Monday to Friday and Sundays from 1pm until 3pm.
