Contemporary character and charm

Want a welcoming home that stands apart and reflects your personality? This G.J. Gardner Wanaka showhome – Northlake Lodge – offers just that. 

Light-filled, warm and spacious, this three bedroom, two bathroom showhome offers all the comfort and convenience that is expected in a modern G.J. Gardner home. 

Ideally set up for entertaining as well as family life, this beautiful single storey home has a large family room consisting of living/dining/kitchen, featuring soaring raked ceilings, an attractive fireplace and engineered natural oak floors. 

The designer kitchen is positioned to have great access and flow to the outdoor dining area situated to the side of the home.  

Crisp and contemporary, the kitchen has an elegant black and white theme – black cabinetry/white splashback and island benchtop – together with a wood-lined drinks station conveniently set to one side, providing functionality for a busy household.

The living/entertaining space is bright and warm with large sliding doors that open to the home’s charming outdoor living space complete with a generous outdoor fireplace. 

The sunny family room is heart-of-the-home, and showcases substantial character through features such as the white barn door that opens to the entry hall providing the home’s bedrooms with a sense of separation and privacy.

The convenient walk-through laundry is a popular feature and leads to the double car garage. The compact laundry features plenty of functional design and character through the beautiful green cabinetry.

Residing at the rear of the home is a large master bedroom with an equally generous master suite – a private parental escape. A built in headboard feature of black timber provides a touch of character to the space, while the roomy ensuite continues the home’s touches of green through its beautiful tiling.

The other two bedrooms are also roomy and light-filled, all featuring large sliding doors that add to the indoor-outdoor flow of the home. 

A central study space is another example of convenient living built right into the floor plan offering a great space for someone working from home, or a study spot for kids.

Then there are the other 'unseens' that make the home great to live in day to day – the interiors are snug and warm in winter and easily cooled in summer. There is a wealth of convenient storage threaded through the home.

Northlake Lodge 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.
