Seatoun

It’s take two for this 1930s character bungalow in Wellington. A full renovation has completely revitalised the home, transforming it into a superliveable modern star, open to the backyard. The front of the home has been extensively remodelled and enhanced to create an inviting first impression. High-spec materials and attention to detail deliver wow factor that draws you in. Modern building techniques promise to stand the test of time. An improved open-plan layout now includes four bedrooms, three bathrooms and two living spaces. High batten ceilings turn up the volume in the main living area, creating a great feeling of space. The state-of-the-art kitchen is an entertainer’s dream with its large central island/breakfast bar. Warmth emanates from matai floorboards. The rear of the home sits on a lowered concrete slab for seamless flow to the outdoor entertainment area. Artificial turf is an easy-care feature. Cedar cladding links the new double garage and studio area to the rear additions. For more of this house go to houseoftheyear.co.nz
