Located on one of Clearwaters premium lakeside sections this elegant, architecturally-designed home boasts a range of features and benefits which combined make it a very unique offering.
Built of solid concrete construction at the end of a quiet cul-de-sac, the home has a floor area of 368 sq m and offers stunning views over the lake to the 18th fairway.
Architect Ian Athfield has created a sophisticated contemporary home with a warm and welcoming almost country feel. The kitchen, complete with walk-in pantry, essentially has two bars. The first servicing the informal dining / living area and the second is an indoor outdoor bar with large bi-fold windows opening onto a sheltered and sunny north west facing patio; custom designed for entertaining.
The formal dining / lounge area is expansive enough to house the owners grand piano but snug enough for entertaining around the open gas fire. On balmy summer evenings the lounge opens through wide bi-fold doors onto the patio with its wooden path and manicured lawns sloping gently down to the lakes edge.
There is a large guest bedroom with en-suite downstairs along with a large office that has separate access from the car park. Upstairs the master bedroom opens onto a large sunny balcony with spectacular views over the lake to the 18th and down to the clubhouse.
The landing linking the master bedroom to the second upstairs double bedroom has a convenient bench-top complete with sink and small fridge. The upstairs bathroom has floor to ceiling tiles with large walk-in glass shower and underfloor heating.
Double glazing throughout plus extensive underfloor heating and the gas fire ensures this home is toasty warm in the winter and on hot summer days the large bi-fold doors can be left open to allow the breeze to keep the house cool. The level of sunshine coming into the lounge can also be adjusted by large electronically controlled external louvers.
The extended double garage houses two cars plus a golf buggy and ample space for storage and a workbench. Attached to the garage is a further bathroom complete with mudroom and shower.
The property is being sold with a full family membership to the Clearwater Golf Club, home of the BMW NZ Open.

It has been developed on 465 acres of park like grounds with numerous crystal clear spring fed streams and lakes and is located just 15 minutes from the city and an even shorter drive to Christchurch International Airport.
This residence is ideally suited to a family wanting to live away from the city but stay conveniently close to city schools and amenities or to a couple looking for a friendly and secure community in which to retire.
