This home by popular homebuilders G.J. Gardner Homes offers everything that a growing family wants – starting with three separate living spaces

Idyllically situated, a few minutes' walk from popular Long Bay on Auckland's North Shore, this grand family home offers a relaxed upmarket lifestyle.

The home's impressive street presence is accentuated by the James Hardie Linea Weatherboard and James Hardie Vertical Axon cladding – finishes that were literally made for each other.

Stepping through the front door into a dramatic double height entry, you are immediately struck by the generous interiors, with the open-plan family/dining/kitchen area straight ahead – stretching the length and half the width of the entire ground floor.

Directly to the left, as you enter, is the carpeted formal lounge with large picture windows and a double-sided, see-through gas fireplace.

In the main open-plan living/dining area, beautiful Quickstep Eligna Old Oak planks provide a low-upkeep character floor that also runs into the designer kitchen.

One of the features of the home, the kitchen is a picture in bold black and white, with gleaming Fisher & Paykel, Smeg and Asko stainless steel appliances.

The kitchen is served by a roomy scullery with an external window so you can prep and enjoy the outlooks at the same time.

The kitchen is a few steps from the dining area, with the family room beyond that – the family room also enjoys the other side of the two-sided fireplace seen in the formal living room.

Large scenic windows plus the open-plan nature of the layout ensure the ground floor is flooded with natural light.

A dedicated laundry, one of the home's three bathrooms and of course the two-car garage are also on the ground floor.

Up the stairs lies a private lounge, the roomy master suite and three other bedrooms, along with the shared family bathroom.

The house is as practically considered as it is easy on the eye and the upstairs family room includes capacious dedicated storage.

Thanks to an open void between upstairs and downstairs, so you can look down on the entry hall from above – this arrangement also maximises natural light.

The master retreat includes a crisp, modern ensuite with a feature shower stall that allows for plenty of room to move.

The master also has a dressing room, complete with built-in joinery to maximise capacity and ease of use.

Designed with optimum north facing windows, heat pumps to supplement the gas fires and locked in snug insulation, this family/entertainer's home is as welcoming and cosy in winter as it is in summer when generous connections make this an indoor-outdoor home.

This showhome is now open to view, so make sure to check it out – you can find all the details here. Alternatively you can explore G.J. Gardner’s wide range of customisable concept plans here or see more G.J. Gardner showhomes here.
