A cosy and inviting nook along the windswept Sumner coast.

Clad in a cloak of cedar and curled up on the hillside, this contemporary home in Sumner, Christchurch captures sweeping ocean views around Pegasus Bay toward the Kaikoura Ranges.

The outlook can also be enjoyed from the azure waters of the swimming pool.

Sheltered areas provide outdoor living spaces that can be enjoyed year round. Inside a series of intimate private spaces unfold into the into the heart of the home – the wide-open family and entertaining area. Cosy and inviting, a centrally placed floating plywood wall provides a backdrop for open-plan living on one side and bedroom wing on the other. This creates both privacy, a visual hearth and connection with the landscape.
