1857A River Road, Flagstaff, Hamilton
When a multi-award winning designer home teams up with an exclusive riverside location a blissful marriage occurs. Built by Urban Homes in 2017, this eye-catching bagged brick home earned accolades in the Master Builders House of the Year regional and national competitions.
The leafy entrance off River Road reveals a north-facing haven showcasing premium features, textured materials and relaxed contemporary style where the day begins and ends with soothing river and reserve views, in a private setting across the river from the Waikato Equestrian Centre.
This quality act bears the hallmarks of honest simplicity, outstanding workmanship and well-considered detailing. The high-stud interior lets the views unfold in a natural way while a slew of double glazing creates a feeling of sunny oneness with the breathtaking landscape.
A thoughtful separation of bedrooms segregates the children or guest bedrooms from the master wing. Family bedrooms share a tiled bathroom and a recessed kitchenette, ideal when visitors come to stay. The master suite hints at five-star luxury.
Everyday life unfolds in the spacious open-plan domain graced by a bespoke stone kitchen and scullery. Cabinetry is fashioned from recycled native timbers and the appliances are top-range. This bright airy open-plan shakes hands with a large entertainment portico and deck overlooking the river. Electronic drop-down blinds and in-built ceiling heaters encourage year-round alfresco living. An office, full height doors and windows, recessed curtain treatments, underfloor heating and gas hot water enhance liveability.
House and gardens are designed for easy upkeep. Perfect for backyard relaxation, this everyday sanctuary is oh-so inviting.
