This large single level home captures the view with a promenade entrance with a cantilevered canopy, the front doors open to an oversized hallway staring out through a wall to wall, floor to ceiling single pane facing the Marlborough Sounds in the distance, with Porirua lagoon below. The master suite, an exclusive private experience separated from the rest of the home, contains its own study, wardrobe, an ensuite with a walk-in shower looking out through a floor to ceiling window to the South Island to create a magical experience for the parents to relax away from the kids play spaces. To the end of the house, the lounge, main bathroom, and bedrooms take in the views leaving the central axis of the home to indulge in entertainment spaces to the east and west to capture the views, the sun, and shelter from the Wellington wind on any given day.
