Sitting directly opposite Ohope’s dune beachfront, this two-level residence is designed to fully appreciate the ocean view. Glazing is a key factor in the 278sqm home, notably in the picture window in the lounge, with its striking half-wall slider design. Careful placement throughout ensures every room captures natural light and views wherever possible. Even windows in the scullery and master wardrobe make a huge difference. Three bedrooms and two bathrooms cater for guests and family, but essentially this is a home for two. Upstairs has an apartment-style ambience. Open-plan design maximises space, light, scenery and the sun’s path. The scullery makes for sleek entertaining. Small details complete the big picture, notably an outside tap on the balcony upstairs, an LED octopus-styled pendant in the stairwell, and designer window dressings. With a garage with high internal stud for the boat, double garaging for vehicles and a lift, this home showcases inspiring forethought and functionality.
