No. 2 Killick Place is a very impressive, stand-alone family home in a brand-new development in North Shore, Auckland. It is currently a Universal Homes Showhome.
So impressive, in fact, that it was an award winner in the Auckland House of the Year 2019. If you love the beach or the bush, then this is the perfect location for you. Fabulous Long Bay Beach is a just a walk away and the Okura Scenic Reserve with it’s amazing birdlife.
Living room and then some
This is a home that doesn’t stint on space. The upstairs downstairs configuration means there’s heaps of room for a growing family: four generous bedrooms upstairs with a large family bathroom, and a massive ensuite off the master bedroom complete with its own walk-in wardrobe.
Downstairs, its open plan living on a grand scale. The lounge, dining and family areas are awash with natural light from the huge expanse of windows. All double glazed, of course. And centre stage is a wonderfully appointed kitchen with state-of-the-art appliances. Large sliding doors effortlessly let the outside in and give easy access to the patio and lawn.
Easycare from top to bottom
Isthmus Group Architects have designed this home for easy living. External cladding is a combination of low maintenance, vertical cedar and Linea weatherboards. The mono pitch roof features long run Colorsteel®. And the home’s crisp lines are highlighted by Marley’s Stratus Design Series® Typhoon® spouting and RP80® downpipe in black. Both of which are made from high quality uPVC which means it won’t rust – so important when you are close to the sea.
We really like the mix of light and dark tones for the exterior and the choice of the black spouting and downpipes to match the joinery works beautifully.
