Dark tones and stone cladding elements give this house by GJ Gardner a strong presence.

When the setting’s one of the prettiest places on Earth, it makes sense to design a home that does justice to the surroundings. This character home by GJ Gardner Wanaka achieves just that.

The dramatic stone and Linea mix on this showhome speaks to the wider alpine setting and also reflects the home’s rugged durability, says GJ Gardner franchisee owner Nick Tapper.

“And the four bedroom, two bathroom home is suited to its natural lifestyle environment in other ways, too. The interiors are light-filled, spacious and user friendly – ideal if your family likes to live life to the max and wants a home that will support that, now and into the future.”

​​​​​​​This two-storey GJ Gardner Wanaka showhome responds to its lake and mountain setting and offers a relaxed family lifestyle. The modern kitchen includes a pleasing hexagon tile splashback and is close to the living, dining and outdoor areas.

And user friendly really does mean just that. Large windows and french doors offer great indoor-outdoor flow from the living spaces and the master bedroom, while locating the home’s master suite downstairs and the other bedrooms upstairs means there’s privacy and space for all.

Similarly, the second lounge or media room means the home has separate social hubs, so the conversation can be humming along in one place while a gaming console hums away in another.

There's a sense in which we've established a layout plan that is the basis for nearly all new kitchens – one in which the island plays a dominant role. But while we may feel comfortable with using this plan as a template – because it works so well – we still want our own kitchen to have a distinctive style. And the mix of materials we select can have a big influence on this.
