12 Your guide to Show

12 Your guide to Show Homes & New Sections G.J. Gardner in the Selwyn District Meandering roads and green spaces characterise Wilfield, a subdivision in West Melton. With the popularity of residential properties situated West of Christchurch, and the progress being made on the Southern motorway, many families are making West Melton their home. G.J. Gardner Homes’ show home in Wilfield is at 14 Kingsdowne Drive. This 295m2 home is a great illustration of the exceptional design and build quality G.J. Gardner Homes is known for. Sunny, bright open plan with defined dining and family areas, made more intimate with a boxed ceiling, these are separated from the lounge by double sliders that open for entertaining. The kitchen has ample bench space, an island sink, and a generous walk-in pantry with scullery. A long low window offers a view of the yard and there is access to a sheltered deck, perfect for breakfast or coffee. A triple car garage includes the laundry and a guest toilet with wash basin. Four double bedrooms plus a study nook make up the Northeast wing of this expansive home. The master bedroom has a spacious walk-in wardrobe and a fully tiled ensuite and shower. The main bathroom also features a tiled shower and a bath. The family toilet also has its own wash basin. Outdoor living is catered for with a large, hardwood deck at the front of the house. A cedar-lined portico gives the home both a strong presence and great street appeal. Sliding doors from the living area and the master bedroom give access to the deck and look towards the snowcapped Southern Alps. Storage is a feature in this home. Full height cupboards in the laundry and hall; three of the four bedrooms have walk-in wardrobes; and there is attic storage above the garage. This outstanding show home is an excellent example of G.J. Gardner’s craftsmanship and quality. It is a must for viewing. It is at 14 Kingsdowne Drive, West Melton, and is open Wednesday to Sunday from 12 til 4pm.
