The owners are head over heels for their retreat inland from Opunake. This four-bedroom, three-bathroom dream home fulfil their every need and desire. With a phenomenal 499sqm footprint, there’s room for the whole extended family.
A corrugated iron and stone exterior gives this mega-modern homestead a rugged feel inspired by the family vocation – farming. The interior living spaces are designed in line with their other passions – baking, for one. A cook’s dream, the fantastic kitchen features double ovens and a social central island. The walk-in pantry offers generous storage, including a dedicated drinks fridge and chest freezer.
Glazing frames extensive views of Mt Taranaki in one direction and the coast in the other. Separate living quarters serve guests or farm staff.
Outdoor living is second to none. Sink a few cold ones by the pool or indulge that competitive streak with chess or checkers on the life-sized game board that’s designed into the paving. The wood-burning pizza oven completes this slice of heaven.
