New Zealand's House of the Year 2008
Russell was one of the best place i've ever visited in my life. The house we stayed in has the most breathtaking view ever and it just happened to be the New Zealand's House of the Year 2008 which we only found out by looking at the magazine that was in the house. Apparently, the owner wanted to have a house that's literally situated on the top of mountain with nice view to give one a perfect feel of getting away from life and all that jazz...so they spent around NZD $600,000 - $1 million to build this house. But they're not staying in it. They're staying somewhere in the States. Isn't that ironic to spend so much building a house that you don't even wanna stay in it permanently?
The magazine that proves you are really staying in one of New Zealand's finest house... Can't resist to strike this type of pose when you're having a view like that... The 'postcard' view... The happy bunch prior to departure...
The house is all fully furnished with 3 bedrooms, 2 bathrooms and 1 kitchen. Everything is pretty much provided. All you need to do is bring youself, your clothes and food for you to cook. Trust me, you'll want to make this your permanent home after staying in it for the first 1/2 hour.
