Tall tales and blue

ELLERSLIE, Auckland / Northland / Coromandel

2022 Master Builders House of the Year - Gold

2022 Regional Category Winner

Sentinel Homes

Auckland Central, South & East

With a clever design and top-notch craftsmanship, the brief has been nailed – and the owners couldn’t be happier. A simple architectural block form was chosen for the 230sqm house, but there’s nothing unassuming about its street presence. It’s tall, bold and handsome, with vertical cedar cladding that settles the two-storey house into the established neighbourhood. The over height cedar entrance door makes a stylish welcome. A hall leads to the open-plan living space, with its oak floorboards and kitchen in bold blue. The louvred outdoor room extends the living space and connects to a spa pool and landscaped gardens. A bedroom, bathroom, separate lounge with a fireplace, and double garage are also located on the ground floor. The oak staircase leads to two more bedrooms, a bathroom and the main bedroom with ensuite, study nook and walk-in wardrobe. Apart from the rhapsody-in blue kitchen, the palette is in warm neutrals, with furnishings left to inject colour. There’s a sense of space and volume here, thanks to sloping ceilings and the open staircase – a clever and articulate response to a narrow building site. It’s no surprise the owners are delighted with their new home.
