Family focus in Canterbury

 

They say ‘home is where the heart is’ and this is undoubtedly the case with this lovely new home situated at Turton Green, a subdivision on the outskirts of Ashburton.

This Jennian Homes design is  smart-looking, modern and its styling subtly encompasses children, pets and the relaxed feeling of a family home. The heart of the home is physically located right between the gull wings, where most of the living and entertaining takes place. Bi-fold doors open from the kitchen and living room onto a big deck that links both wings, with steps down to provide easy access to the lawn.

Clad predominantly with Envira bevel back weatherboards the exterior is painted Traditional White—a timeless touch of kiwiana—and finished with grey box corners. Contrasting concrete block features give the house a modern edge and street appeal.

The homeowners say that with their busy family life maintenance was a key issue and they were happy to learn that timber cladding (when correctly installed and painted on installation) only needs repainting every 10 to 12 years, the same as any other painted cladding surface. The Envira system also comes factory primed so painting costs are saved immediately.

A watertight finish was achieved using Envirascribe, a pre-cut scriber that acts as an easy storyboard for installation and means the weatherboards sit gap-free against windows, doors and adjoining walls.

TimberTech decking was laid in all the outdoor entertaining areas and the welcoming main entrance. This hardy composite decking is perfect for busy family living as it is maintenance free and doesn’t require staining. The splinter-free finish means it is safe for little feet and inevitable spills just wash away.

Inside, bathrooms and wet areas benefit from timber architraves, which won’t delaminate like MDF  when damp. Niagara can treat these to H3.1 making them
even more resistant.

 

Niagara’s timber window reveals and simple skirting boards add warmth and appeal painted in the same neutral tones as walls and ceilings to contrast with the modern angles and striking accents of colour.

The overall impression is of a well-designed home,
built to be lived in and built to last. A home with a true heart.
