Sleek yet cosy, minimal in structure but rich in colour and texture, this striking country home is a comfortable family residence that makes a serious statement. From the multiple courtyards to the see-through gas fireplace that links the living and dining areas, this is a home with a firm commitment to flowing, timeless beauty.
Across the country, Lone Star’s stock in trade is hearty portions of simple yet delicious meals, rustic Wild West-style ambience, and a friendly, warm vibe that welcomes in everyone from families to couples. The new Lone Star Dunedin takes the sense of cosiness and warmth that permeates the Lone Star atmosphere and gives it a physical manifestation in the shape of four Escea gas fireplaces.
Form meets function in this stylish home built to take maximum advantage of a smaller section. From outside, the four bedroom house makes a bold statement with formal landscaping and with the front door set beneath a porch. A red wall panel from ground to soffit introduces a design feature which is echoed within the house.
The Escea DX Series fireplaces are not only popular with architects and clients but also have caught the eye of the best designers and stylists – both in New Zealand and also globally.
Escea is pleased to announce the arrival of the DX1000 fireplace to join the DX Series. DX fireplaces offer a see-through double sided option, heat ducting that allows the fireplace to be used in a central heating capacity and even allow control via an iPhone or Android app.
The quintessential Christchurch dining place Saggio di Vino is again open in the New Zealand garden city, after experiencing devastating earthquakes in September 2010 and February 2011. This is clearly an exciting piece of news for wine and fine dining enthusiasts. The food is great, the wine list is exceptional and the owners Lisa & Yommi are just as hospitable as ever.
A trendsetter and award-winner in the fireplace industry, Escea’s success has been the result of continually pushing the boundaries of innovative design.
