An all-weather outdoor space is the social hub of this practical home by Fowler Homes Manawatu.

Life is for living, not maintaining surfaces or always cleaning up. The right house design will be low-upkeep to let you get on with the fun stuff like entertaining and summer barbecues.

This entertainer's home is designed to relax in and let the good times roll, says the director of Fowler Homes Manawatu Shane Walker.

"The house has a hassle-free monopitch roof matched with the resilient glamour of the Rockcote EPS system and clean Linea weatherboard.

In this house by Fowler Homes Manawatu landscaped gardens offer an attractive backdrop for the sheltered, welcoming outdoor living environment.

"Aesthetically it has a real wow factor. The woodgrain aluminium front door opens to an attractive tiled entrance. From here, guests take in the first of several feature walls, guiding the way to the open-plan living areas," Walker says.

A focus of the modern, four-bedroom house is the large 60m² outdoor living area, floored in coloured concrete. This is accessed directly from the dining area, family rooms and master suite. Drop-down screens and a wall-hung gas heater protect the all-weather space from the elements.

In party mode, hors d'oeuvres and bubbles are served directly from the designer kitchen out through bifold windows to guests. Post-party clean-up is a breeze, too, with easy-care granite benchtops, generous storage and a large scullery.
