Family home maximises generous living spaces inside and out despite the modest section


Having plenty of room to move is important in a family home, but sadly not all ideal locations come with sufficient build space. This home by Fowler Homes Taranaki responds to just such an issue – the three-bedroom, two-bathroom home makes the most of its modest section.

Managing director, Fowler Homes Taranaki, Sandy MacMillan, says the 223m2, low-upkeep home has a strong street presence.

"The crisp Rockcote Integra plaster and cedar cladding combined with a shallow-pitch Colorsteel Styleline Maxx roof and raked soffit offers a dramatic street presence," she says.

The home's indoor-outdoor flow is enjoyed right from the front approach, with a composite deck leading to the entry and around the side of the home. Inside, the open plan dining, kitchen and family rooms create a sense of spaciousness.

The flow of the home is further enhanced by rebated stacker doors, which create a seamless transition between the indoor timber floors and the wrap-around deck. An advanced gas fire is a cosy touch in the media room and there's a heatpump in the dining room.
