When driving around the northern outskirts of Gisborne you’ll come across this large, two storey entertainer’s dream – the Gisborne Residence, designed by Arcline Architecture.
Beyond the electric gates the driveway leads to a drive-through portico, allowing guests to dodge the elements on their arrival at this spacious home. The three gables facing the road feature aluminium louvres which give texture to the plastered EZ Panel cladding.
Inside the entry you’re greeted with a large chandelier hanging in the void, looking up to the second story.
Although from the road the only giveaway of a second story is the Velux skylights, the home actually has attic trusses throughout and dormers on the far side. The upstairs includes two guest bedrooms, each with their own ensuite.
The hallway to the left leads to another bedroom, laundry, several bathrooms, office, garaging and lastly a self-contained granny flat with its own living, kitchen and bathroom facilities.
To the right leads to the main entertaining spaces. The expansive white kitchen, large dining and family areas with a formal lounge to the West.
Through a 4.8m sliding door off the family room is the alfresco or outdoor area. This features two louvre roof systems and a Trendz outdoor fireplace. The perfect place to relax on a summer’s evening with friends.
A big thanks to Landmark Homes Gisborne and all the local sub-trades for helping bring our clients dream home to life.
