It’s often said your family home is your most valuableasset. And, that’s not just because it’s an intelligent investment. When deciding on your home, you’re also choosing where your children will be raised – a place to help shape the early memories they’ll carry with them all their life. For instance, this new showhome, by GJ Gardner, Christchurch South, would be an ideal place to grow up in.

What young child or teenager wouldn’t want to return to this spacious, sunny home after a busy day at school, says GJ Gardner, Christ- church South, franchise owner Neil Fraser.

The showhome has stand-out street presence, thanks to its crisp white brick cladding and the Sun Selmo Smoked brick range, seen on the chimney and columns fronting the alfresco dining.

And that’s only half the story. The Brickery Designer Series Wenge Panels on the double garage continue through to the entry hall walls, for a seamless flow. Gerard Corona Shake metal tiles, in Midnight, complete the picture.

Inside, the GJ Gardner showhome offers a highly functional backdrop to family life. The living room and family room are separate – a great advantage for a growing family. The living area can be separated off and has a gas fire and warm wool carpet that’s ideal for lolling around on. Past the dining area and kitchen lies the family room, which opens to the alfresco dining.

“This home has exceptional indoor-outdoor connections,” says Fraser. “And the sun streams into this long run of living spaces year round.”

Let it flow – living, dining, kitchen and family spaces all run together in this generous 244.4m² (alfresco dining included) showhome by GJ Gardner Homes, Christchurch South.

Set in the midst of the living spaces, the sleek kitchen is close to everything. With its generous island and stools, this is a family gathering point in itself and is supported by a walk-in pantry.

Durable vinyl plank floors and barn-style sliding doors to the pantry and separable lounge contribute to the home’s distinctive character.

A well-functioning family home also needs  private places to retreat to. To this end, the three children’s bedrooms and the master bedroom with ensuite are all large and light-filled.
