Bay watch

Sweeping views, spacious interiors and sun-drenched alfresco areas. This Acacia Bay abode exudes style and sophistication. Three bedrooms, three bathrooms and three living areas make the home a triple treat.

Perfectly positioned on a ridge-top site, swathes of glass drink in the light and lap up views of Lake Taupo. Corner sliders allow generous decking to become an extension of the elegant interior living spaces.

Set out beneath high raking ceilings, the open-plan domain comprises living, kitchen and dining areas. A walk-in pantry, modern appliances and central island with breakfast bar make this an entertainer’s paradise.

Widespread white amplifies natural light. Polished concrete floors are elegant underfoot, capturing the sun and dispersing heat into the evening. A heat pump and fireplace do the hard yards in the depths of winter.

Separate carpeted living spaces flank the open-plan space, each offering access to further alfresco living areas and wonderful views.

The master bedroom features a tiled ensuite with glazed, level-entry shower. Bliss.
