Purpose built for the residing family, this countryside home in Wanaka (NZ) is an impressive but natural beauty.
Choosing Wanaka as their base was an integral part of the decision process, so they wanted to adequately reflect that choice in the home’s materials. Central Otago schist is generously used throughout the house for framing objects and creating bold entry points; three Escea fireplaces with coal and wood inspired fuel beds echo country elements; “custom rusticated” cedar weatherboard achieves a austere appearance; and finally, plastered Rockcote Integra panel cladding provides a sturdy home foundation.
Just before you worry, these changes are only minor – the EF5000 fireplace will still be the same outdoor fire you know and love. In fact, these modifications are just going to make it better.
Home show season is still in full swing. Next week it is the Waikato Home Show, open from the 2nd-5th of October at the Claudelands Events Centre.
We’ll be there with our outdoor gas fireplace – the EF5000. The display will be built into a show home setup to bring the real feel of the fireplace to life. The EF5000 outdoor fireplace would make an awesome purchase this summer, so you can enjoy the outdoors all day and then late into the night. Just imagine: back yard cricket all day, BBQ for dinner, and a night cap around the fire.
We’ll be at the Auckland Home Show this week with four of our stunning fireplaces; our double sided DX1500, DL1100, ST900 and our outdoor fireplace, the EF5000. We’ll be hanging out at Stand 3 in Hall 8.
The show starts this Wednesday, the 10th of September and runs until the 14th of September at the ASB Showgrounds, Greenlane. You can head on in from 10am until 9pm Wednesday-Saturday and 10am-6pm on Sunday.
Our team at Escea would love to see you, so pop on in and say hello.

Outdoor living need no longer be held hostage by the elements. With the radiant warmth of an Escea EF5000 outdoor gas fireplace, any outdoor space can be transformed into the perfect hideaway for entertaining or relaxation.
Imagine sinking into a cushioned chair in your palm-fringed private courtyard after a long day at work, sipping on a glass of wine as a roaring outdoor fireplace fends off the evening chill. This is reality for the lucky owners of this home, who asked Sandra Batley from Flourish Gardens to create their own inner-city oasis.
The term “apartment living” does interior designer Neil McLachlan’s CBD penthouse a disservice. This sophisticated urban oasis offers the chance to experience the intimacy of big-city lights after dark while sheltering from the high-rise breeze in front of an outdoor gas fire’s radiant warmth.
