For this Queenstown cedar board-clad mountain home, sharp, responsive architectural design meets the quality of a GJ Gardner build
A new home in a stunning location this is a hard-earned dream coming true. But have you got the budget vs lifestyle balance exactly right?
Opting to design and build with GJ Gardner is one way to ensure the all-important mix is just right. And this alpine home is a case in point. The house was created on an affordable budget by franchisee GJ Gardner Homes Queenstown.
The highly experienced team worked closely with local architects Assembly Architecture to create a design that ideally responds to its setting and has the functionality to match on the inside.
Clad in rustic cedar weatherboards stained Boulder Grey and with a rugged Alpine Tray steel roof, in the colour Bracken, this light-filled house captures the sun throughout the day and offers spectacular views from every room.
Intelligently space planned, the house has two living rooms, four bedrooms, and two bathrooms all within a generous 228m² footprint.
And regarding the day-to-day, the standard of finishes and fixtures matches the architecture. Floors are a mix of Oak Tobacco Grey Sauvage by Haro, in a retro deep brushed finish, and cosy Feltex Heartland carpet in Canyon Mist.
The spacious, user-friendly kitchen includes crisp white composite counters along with the very latest Fisher & Paykel appliances. And the bathrooms are equally well considered, matching Clearlite Cashmere vanities and Athena Alumino Exochique tops with matt large-format stone shower tiles and a Clearlite Riviera bath.
