Head to toe restoration


This grand old Villa built in 1895 has had a complete renovation and has been re-piled, re-roofed, re-plumbed, re-wired, re-lined, insulated and redecorated.

The house is large and tall with a 4.3m stud. The focus was on lighter tones to complement the traditional Rimu woodwork and ensure an airy feel in the kitchen and living areas. The high stud enabled the installation of traditional elaborate plaster cornice work, suitably fitting for this grand old lady.

A delightful palette of Resene neutrals provides a light and airy atmosphere with touches of colour to bring personality and life. Resene Half Akaroa adorns the kitchen, joined by Resene Half Sisal in the TV room, Resene Triple Spanish White in the hall, Resene Quarter Pavlova walls and Resene Quarter Pavlova below dado in the foyer, Resene Burnt Crimson walls and Resene Alabaster ceiling in the dining room, Resene Half Green Spring in the library, Resene Half Canterbury Clay walls and Resene Quarter Canterbury Clay cornices in the master bedroom and Resene Triple Spanish White in the bathroom.

There are still three rooms to finish on the inside, and then of course there is the exterior to tackle one day.
