Awhitu means ‘longing to return’ and formed the client’s brief: “indulge family and friends with an exciting kitchen – a space where everyone will long to return time & time again.”

Clonbern Estate, featured in Moving Houses TV1, is a beautifully restored villa positioned on the Awhitu Peninsula with all the merits of a coastal and country lifestyle.

A magnificent house with a grand entry, amazing stained glass windows, pressed metal ceilings and leadlights, radiates a lot of character making the space very easy to fall in love with.

The internal planning of spaces makes the house an epitome of “modern meets traditional’’. There is a great flow from the kitchen through the dining area to the living room which provides visual entertainment on a grand scale.
