This home on Ruapehu Drive, Manawatu combines stunning design, sustainable living, and breathtaking views over Vaucluse Heights to Palmerston North City, the Tararua ranges and Mount Ruapehu. Convenience and sustainability go hand in hand in this home. Downstairs there is the guest room with its own ensuite, double garage and laundry. The kitchen, dining and living area are located at the rear of the house, allowing seamless indoor-outdoor flow to two full size decks, providing the perfect space for entertaining or simply enjoying the spectacular views over nature inspired landscaping. Heading upstairs there are three more bedrooms with a family bathroom. The master bedroom has a walk-in wardrobe and ensuite including the large bath with a window offering a picturesque background to bathe in.

The house is light and bright and modern with a Scandinavian feel with white walls, polished concrete floors, lovely wooden staircase leading to the carpeting in the upstairs bedrooms.

As an eHaus Pacific, the home has undergone energy modelling and proudly displays the eHaus badge which validates its performance. With high levels of insulation in the floor, walls and roof, thermally broken joinery and double glazing, this home is designed to operate between 20-25 degrees all year round. The result is an energy-efficient, comfortable, and healthy living environment for you and your family.

Extraordinary heat energy savings.

Every one of our projects are energy modelled using the Passive House Planning Package (PHPP). It's through this powerfully clever tool that we can accurately calculate just how much heat energy every eHaus will save when compared to a similarly- sized typical new home, built in the same climate region.

This project is making significant carbon savings for a better environment.

We believe that our homes should have a big impact on the way we live, but little impact on the land. We've calculated the amount of carbon our homes have saved through energy efficiency from move in day 'til now. At their core, eHaus' are built with the elimination of carbon emissions in mind - so we're not only creating healthy, comfy & high performing homes, but spaces that don't cost the earth.
