395 Upper Major Hornbrook Rd


This soon-to-be built home is architecturally designed and made to honour it’s most fantastic feature, the sprawling views, which are protected by the John Brittan Reserve. Start your day with a coffee while you gaze out from the kitchen toward the cityscape, banks peninsula, and snow capped peaks. In the evening, watch the sun set with a glass of wine on the terrace as city lights twinkle below, and slowly watch the stars appear and sparkle, uninterrupted in all directions.

The proposed house of 269m2 (circa) will be spread out over two wings, one housing four double bedrooms, with the master bedroom benefitting from a walk in wardrobe and ensuite bathroom with each of these rooms benefitting from floor to ceiling windows to ensure you never miss that amazing view. A large office, guest toilet, family bathroom and internal garage access complete this wing.

The main living wing houses the open plan kitchen with a walk in butlers panty, separate laundry room, dining area and sunken living room with cathedral like windows that open up the majestic view.

A wrap around deck area between these two wings and to the front of the living room offer multiple areas to sit and enjoy the view, even on windy days.







Subject to council approval, we’re looking into a small townhouse development in Riccarton. Ideally located a short walk to Bush Inn and Westfield.
Five 3-bedroom townhouses occupying the block with generous yard space for each home making it ideal for families. If these plans interest you, please get in touch.
