Basking in its super-sunny beachfront position, this Tauranga escape is ready for anything coastal life throws at it. At a very generous 389sqm, there’s more than enough room for the family and their friends to congregrate throughout the seasons. The owners of the house can enjoy unparalleled privacy on the top level in their master suite with covered deck and lounge for morning coffee or nightcaps. Family and friends have the run of the open and spacious level below. The lounge, dining and family rooms are brilliantly connected to a covered deck. The swimming pool soaks up more water views. A wide gallery with cedar-clad spine wall links the entry to the open-plan area. It passes a landscaped internal courtyard with fireplace, ideal for evenings. The hub of this bustling yet laidback beachside beauty is the entertainer’s kitchen with generous pantry and coffee station. It all adds up to a beautifully crafted home that’s designed to share.
