2019 Auckland Architects Award Winning Masterpiece

Prepare to be wowed as you enter a most stunning architectural reinvention of this 1950s stucco bungalow. The soft vertical cedar, honed block wall and fine bamboo create a zen to the approach that is more than an entrance, it's an extra living space that allows privacy yet remains open to the close knit community.

One inside, the design concept by Alignworks Architects does not leave anything to the imagination. The layout of the expansive living space is simple and clean with every last detail considered to a tee. From a top of the line gas fire for cosy winter gatherings, to the central 'everyone's invited' dine in style, then on to the quartz bench tops with an abundance of cupboards and the backdrop of an 'evergreen' window. The detail and what's on offer is too much to take in with just one visit.

Slide back the glazed rear wall and step outside, the outdoor room expands the living even further as you dine, entertain or enjoy family time year-round sheltered by the electronic adjustable louvres. The epitome of a north facing rear garden where you have countless fruit trees and an avocado hedge, total privacy, plus both formal boundaries and children play areas all simply, but thoughtfully laid out. Explore the options of further development out here as this is zoned to allow for subdivision if desired.

Back inside, the new extension of the home was extended forward to not compromise the rear garden. This blank canvas enabled the architects to utilise glass with exposed structural steel to create a communal area that serves the three bedroom either side, or provides a fabulous 'work from home' space with a separate entrance. To top it all off the spec goes on, with ducted central heating/cooling throughout, a Nest security management system, attic storage, plus a garage to the rear and generous off street parking.

You won't want to miss viewing here!
