Clean, elegant lines typical of the work of award-winning architects Sheppard & Rout are evident throughout the first two, of three new, superbly designed residences at Lintrathen Gardens in Fendalton. From the floating stone patios through to the large picture windows and doors opening to the sublime site on the Wairarapa Stream boundary, there is everything that needs to be here yet, more importantly, nothing that doesn't. The combination of an unerring eye for detail combined with faultless execution has resulted in well-proportioned, interconnecting spaces that will make these contemporary properties just as desirable in 20 years as they are today. These first two premier residences offer a series of secluded and sheltered outdoor living spaces surrounded by professionally landscaped grounds. The stunning views from almost every room have been planned for maximum impact and the overall effect is rather like living on a private country estate. Doors off the living and dining areas open the rooms to the patios and stream which effectively doubles the already spacious entertaining areas in the spring and summer and allow you to admire the flotillas of ducklings paddling upstream. The white designer kitchens, with their black granite finishes, offer good work spaces and a large amount of storage including a floor to ceiling pantry and deep pot and platter drawers. Both come with an adjacent, fully equipped butler's kitchen and separate, well-fitted laundries. The highly specified kitchens and tiled bathrooms are a particular feature in these residences utilising the proven reliability and sheer good looks of European appliances and fittings throughout. Upstairs the bedrooms enjoy morning and evening sun with the ensuites and family bathrooms plus the fully fitted walk in wardrobes carrying the same attention to detail displayed throughout each residence. Full insulation, double glazing and discreet ducted reverse cycle air conditioning units ensures these homes are energy efficient and comfortable all year-round.
