#24 has been a labour of love for Rod and his team. After purchasing the property just over 10 years ago and completing extensive renovations and restorations to the property inside and out, #24 is now flourishing as the architect Terence Hitchcock, originally intended it to be.

This project involved repainting from green to Karen Walker grey the cedar shingles (which were sadly painted by a previous owner), a new roof and completely starting a new – the front entrance and back garden pool area. All previous rotten decking was removed and replaced with a large landing deck that overlooks the pool and estuary frontage. The pool area was modernised by removing the rock waterfall into the pool, reshaping, retiling, decking and adding a sheer-decent water feature. Boardwalk style decks wrap around either side of the house leading to a 'boat - house' style art studio and in-keeping wood storage facility. 

The contemporary style planting with a mix of tropical around the pool area ties in the properties natural surroundings and families love of colour. Plants were chosen to attract native New Zealand bird life, attracting the likes of Tui, Fantail and Kingfisher. 

The details were extremely important to this project as with all other projects Rod completes – using all premium materials such as Kwila wood and copper. All fence posts were capped with copper in this project to tie in the copper detailing on the main house. Gates and doors were custom made by Papakura joinery from Cedar in keeping with the projects aesthetic.
