Description

ACTIVE SOLAR HOME!


Warm, earthy, stylish, sophisticated, and supreme quality are words that best describe this special home.

Designed by renowned firm Aonui Architecture to achieve a high eco and sustainable standard, this stunning property embodies all the virtues of modern living. Being an active solar home, the extensive north-facing windows allow the winter sun to warm the impressively polished concrete floors, automatic high-level windows throughout help cool during the summer months. This home sits beautifully on a low-maintenance plot, nestled in the Rahana Way eco-community, Waikanae, one of the Kapiti Coast's most picturesque suburbs.

Entering through the central glazed lobby, the eastern wing is dedicated to three bedrooms, a well-specified bathroom with WC, luxury of underfloor heating, a separate WC, and hideaway laundry area.

Located in the western wing is a light and airy open plan kitchen, boasting engineered stone benchtops and plenty of storage, the dining and living space which extends through large bi-fold doors to the north-west facing deck and patio area, the perfect spot for al fresco entertaining. High stud ceilings, double glazing, polished concrete floors, and clever use of timber give this great living space style and sophistication.

A real bonus of this home is the additional multi-purpose room leading off the living area. This would be just perfect as an office, TV room, or additional bedroom. The internal access garage is carpeted, lined, and insulated, offering options for different uses.

Clad in cedar and macrocarpa, with innovative gabion rock walls that trap heat, a ducted heat transfer system for taking heat between wings, this property will surely stand the test of time and be a home to treasure for years to come.

Waikanae boasts one of the best walking and cycle trails of Greater Wellington, the Waikanae River Loop. Only a minutes' walk away you meet the loop, leading directly to Waikanae Beach and its bustling cafes. Also, within easy reach to the parks and amenities.
