E-I-E-I-O - Martinborough barn

Range of holiday homes by Red ShedYou've heard of the joys of country living... now you can really get back to the good life with a new stylish range of holiday homes by Red Shed. Ideally suited for the Martinborough wine district and nationwide lifestyle blocks, the first home completed in Paraparaumu, Wellington is aptly named the "Martinborough Barn".

Incorporating diverse substrates ranging from strand board flooring and Macrocarpa beams to the ever popular paperfaced wallboard, Resene paint systems and vibrant colours feature predominantly in this modern twist on the iconic barn. The two interior feature walls of Resene Zest (yellow orange) and a Resene colour match to Melteca Snapdragon grab attention from the predominantly neutral Resene Tahuna Sands (green toned cream) walls. The interior is finished with white Resene Super Gloss enamel on interior trim and Resene Waterborne Woodsman on exposed joists and strandboard for a protected, yet natural, timber finish.

The exterior timber façade has had its natural rustic beauty preserved with an attractive finishing system of Resene Waterborne Woodsman, and Resene Super Gloss enamel tinted to the complex beige Resene Tea on trim and joinery.

The Martinborough Barn is the perfect way to sit back with a fine wine and enjoy the lifestyle of Martinborough no matter where you live.
