Exquisite interiors and luxurious exteriors deliver exceptional comfort high on Northland’s east coast. Sweeping glass slider doors capture wide water views: ocean in one direction, superb swimming pool in another. It doesn’t get much better than this. The design enjoys open flow throughout and blurs the indoor-outdoor boundaries at every turn. Three bedrooms, two bathrooms and two living spaces round out an expansive 440sqm floor plan. The entertainer’s kitchen and scullery are the centrepiece of the open-plan area. The roofline extends to cover outdoor living. External cedar sliders allow the owners to block out the elements if desired. Unparalleled luxury awaits in the spacious master suite with its wonderful water views, walk-in wardrobe and savvy office space. A cavity slider door draws back to reveal a stunning freestanding bath and open shower set atop designer tiles. Glazed bifold doors enhance that alfresco effect. Clad in cedar and natural stone, this beautiful home sits proudly among native bush. Pure tranquillity.
