Breezy Duplex In Paerata Rise

The term ‘duplex’ might not fully capture the essence of this 228sqm home. While it does share a wall with a mirror-image house, it stands out as a spacious and lavish property brimming with high-end features and designer elements.

The home’s light-filled nature is another understatement. The open-plan communal area of this three-bedroom, three-bathroom property is a testament to this. Sunlight pours in through windows and glazed doors spanning nearly an entire wall, leading to a balcony. The white and timber decor and pale concrete-block feature walls reflect the light, while neutral and natural furnishings enhance the bright and breezy atmosphere.


Luxurious Upper Floor

The upper floor of this luxurious duplex houses the kitchen and a generously sized walk-in pantry. The main bedroom is also here, featuring a walk-in closet, a sophisticated ensuite, and an elevated view. The powder room is another feature you’ll find on this floor.


Comfortable Living Spaces In the Duplex

On the ground level, you’ll discover two more bedrooms, a full bathroom, and an internal-access double garage with laundry facilities. A second lounge or family room extends onto a deck, offering an outdoor living space that’s both sheltered and inviting. This deck is shielded by the balcony above, providing a sense of privacy.


Architectural Aesthetics

From an architectural perspective, this house is adorned with timber, concrete blocks, and Stria cladding, creating a visually appealing exterior. But the design of this duplex goes beyond aesthetics. It has been designed with an eye to the future, incorporating features like a lift, a level threshold for wheelchairs, and an EV charger. These features not only enhance the home’s accessibility but also make it future-ready.

The thoughtful design and high-quality finishes combine to create a home that’s not just a place to live but a place to truly enjoy life.
