Tasman Heights - 2005
Simplicity and Elegance
This stunning two-level South Island home has been built to maximise the stunning views of Tahunanui beach and Nelson’s Western Ranges.
Built in the new Tasman Heights suburb in Nelson, the design of this three-bedroom home also makes the most of indoor-outdoor living, with easily accessible decks, patios and gardens. The main level has all the comforts of contemporary family living, including a sound-proof entertainment room.
Cooking in the state-of-the-art kitchen can be combined with entertaining guests in the open-plan living area. Granite benches and neutral tones make this an attractive workspace, while sliding windows and doors allow food and drinks to be served with ease to those on the decks and patio.
Wooden floors and tiled bathrooms add to the simplicity and elegance of this cedar and plaster home. The study has its own entrance so business can be kept separate from the living areas.
The home’s northwest aspect, along with double-glazing and a heat pump, ensure it is warm in winter and cool in summer. Skylights over the stairwell and in the guest toilet ensure these spaces are well-lit and ventilated.
Ample storage has been included inside the house and the attached garage. There is also a workshop in the spacious double-garage.
Foothold Developments achieved the high standard that earned this home its category-winning status by working closely with the owners.
