As you walk down the driveway at Jackie and Bevan’s home, the zen-like surroundings give you an instant feeling of calmness.
Having lived in Greenhithe for seven years, Jackie and her family knew it was the place they wanted to be. When they found their dream home for sale, with land for the children to play and a gorgeous view of the water, they jumped at it.
The family instantly fell in love with the Balinese style, the secluded nature of the property and the sprawling decks.
The layout of the house is spacious and modern with generous windows so you’re continually taking in the mature tropical gardens. The parquet flooring is a bold design statement that works incredibly well.
The roof is corrugated iron painted in Ironsand, one of New Zealand’s favourite roofing colours. This made picking Ironsand spouting and downpipes from the Marley Stratus Design Series® the obvious choice. Jackie chose the Typhoon® spouting as this half round profile can cope with the larger roof area and heavier rainfall. The external brackets make it easy for cleaning out leaves and debris, whilst complimenting the unique Balinese style columns.
Water has been used throughout the grounds for a tranquil resort feel. A goldfish filled stream meanders below the imposing entrance way and a heated swimming pool has recently been installed – certainly a winner for the family next summer.
Balinese style homes fit so well with the way we live in New Zealand. They are incredibly versatile with maximum indoor-outdoor flow for the summer months and an equally warm, cosy feel for the winter. As displayed so well on this home, the Marley Stratus Design Series® can help bring any Balinese beauty to life.
