It’s all about those stunning sea views in South Head. This highly appointed five-bedroom home is perfectly positioned for full appreciation of the Kaipara Harbour outlook. Sweeping decking delivers a superb extension to the 346sqm interior. Encased in black iron, the home enjoys a very modern aesthetic.
Ample glazing enhances the indoor-outdoor connection. Raked ceilings add upward interest to the interior, opening the home to light and views. But it’s not just the living spaces that are privy to the outdoor experience. Bedrooms with 2.4m-high sliders also flow to the deck, sheltered by low roofs with stained plywood soffits. A central sunshade follows the line of the middle of the home, soaring higher than the rest.
Sunlight spills in, onto exposed polished concrete floors, maximising passive solar gain. The sustainable home also features an eco-friendly fireplace with wetback. The kitchen with scullery is a cook’s dream. Both bathrooms enjoy a flawless feel with polished concrete flowing into the flush-level showers with floor-to-ceiling tiles. Smooth moves all round.
