If your garage is too packed with tools to fit your cars, you’ll appreciate the double garages featured in this home —one of them is used as a workshop, the perfect rural accessory. The four-bedroom home, perched on a lifestyle block in Redwood Valley, was designed to capture the surrounding views across Tasman Bay. The first thing you notice when you walk into the house is this vista, seen through the windows at the opposite end of the home. Vaulted ceilings with windows to match are positioned at both the front door and the doors from the living room to the patio, so the effect as you enter is one of openness and light. Also mirrored at both ends of the home are external stone pillars, which complement the plaster and fibre cement weatherboard cladding. The main bedroom, with an ensuite and walk-in wardrobe, runs down one wing of the home, with three bedrooms on the other side. The kitchen-living-dining area, complete with generous scullery, is open plan, with the option to close off areas — including the entry and a second living space — using glass doors. Sliding doors also open from the living spaces and bedrooms to sun-soaked patios. Bliss.
