There’s no option but to relax in this refined yet rustic retreat in the Mahurangi district, north of Auckland. The only difficulty is deciding where best to put your feet up.
Perhaps in the laidback open-plan living area, or the cosy second lounge or the sweeping deck with water views. Or maybe you’re more of a pool person? Sunken into the deck, this spot has the best views in the house.
A winged 263sqm layout cleverly embraces outdoor living, limiting the effect of prevailing winds while still capturing the sea breeze. Multiple glazed sliding doors create seamless flow between inside and out.
Three well-proportioned bedrooms are served with ease by the three beautiful bathrooms on offer. Timber and tiles within carry on through the rustic theme.
The home’s entrance is into a large foyer, a foretaste of the airy spaces to come. A barn door opens to the living area, adding a country note to this rock ‘n’ roll retreat.
The spacious and stylish kitchen is an entertainer’s dream come true. A central island cooktop with suspended extractor allows the host to whip up meals while socialising or simply soaking up the view.
