High above the Bay on the sun-filled Northern Slopes of Napier Hill sits this recently renovated bungalow. The once tired property was discovered by Barbara Sumner Burstyn, a New Zealand film producer and writer who instantly recognised it’s potential. Jarrod and the JPW team deconstructed the property, leaving nothing more than a shell before painstakingly restoring it to achieve Barbara’s vision.
With a new grand entrance, light filled lounge area looking out to the ocean and an indoor-outdoor flow from a modern kitchen the property has been successfully transformed from a cute but pokey and damp bungalow. The renovation provides a seamless livable space and flows from the indoors to the outdoor patio area. From the deliberately worn provincial french tiles in the entrance to the restored Rimu floorboards the project has been meticulously delivered to maintain the integrity of original home.
