Spacious modern alpine home gets budget v lifestyle balance right


A new home in a stunning location – this is a hard-earned dream coming true. But have you got the budget vs lifestyle balance exactly right?

Opting to design and build with GJ Gardner is one way to ensure the all-important mix is just right. And this alpine home is a case in point. The house was created on an affordable budget by franchisee GJ Gardner Homes Queenstown.

The highly experienced team worked closely with local architects Assembly Architecture to create a design that ideally responds to its setting and has the functionality to match on the inside.

Clad in rustic cedar weatherboards stained Boulder Grey and with a rugged Alpine Tray steel roof, in the colour Bracken, this light-filled house captures the sun throughout the day and offers spectacular views from every room.

Intelligently space planned, the house has two living rooms, four bedrooms, and two bathrooms – all within a generous 228m2 footprint.


And regarding the day-to-day, the standard of finishes and fixtures matches the architecture. Floors are a mix of Oak Tobacco Grey Sauvage by Haro, in a retro deep brushed finish, and cosy Feltex Heartland carpet in Canyon Mist.

The spacious, user-friendly kitchen includes crisp white composite counters along with the very latest Fisher & Paykel appliances. And the bathrooms are equally well considered, matching Clearlite Cashmere vanities and Athena Alumino Exochique tops with matt large-format stone shower tiles and a Clearlite Riviera bath.
