Character showhome features a strong street presence and private, sheltered outdoor living

From strong, classic roof forms to a rustic interior barn door and relaxed indoor-outdoor flow, this showhome by G.J. Gardner Queenstown is an ideal response to New Zealand’s favourite alpine playground

Showhomes not only reflect the latest and best for a design and build company, they also often respond to the spirit of the area they’re built in. And this strong, solid family home by G.J. Gardner Queenstown is surely no exception.

Right from the street, the home’s 5-rib steel roof and combined Linea weatherboard, vertical shiplap cedar and masonry brick cladding reflect a strong build for a rugged environment.

The articulated roof forms and multi-faceted cladding combine to give the home the look of grouped smaller buildings, playing down its generous size – the four-bedroom home boasts 278m² of floor area, deep porches included.

Inside, the family friendly layout includes a second living space in a separate building form, reached by a glass linking corridor – perfect for teenagers or parents to get away from it all.

In fact, this home is all about user-friendly connections. The secondary living area building also partly encloses the sheltered courtyard, which is accessed directly from the large covered alfresco dining area and the kitchen alongside.

Several features make the home ideal for entertaining. Oak plank floors run through the public spaces while the modern kitchen with walk-in scullery opens to the living room via a character barn door. 

There is also a staircase with glass balustrade, plus custom joinery in the master bedroom, laundry, media room and office.

The Queenstown home is exceptionally well insulated and benefits from a roaring gas fire.
