A feast for the senses, this picture-perfect home north of Tauranga is just what the owners ordered.
Designed to take full advantage of the picturesque scenery from every room, the modest 184sqm design succeeds admirably.
Superb views are served up in both the formal dining area and the open-air portico where meals can also be enjoyed alfresco. A wide set of steps unfolds onto the established grounds, which flow to the sea.
Well prepared for guests, the home boasts three bedrooms and two bathrooms.
The spacious kitchen is an entertainer’s dream with heavy duty appliances and a walk-in pantry. The central island offers a lovely workspace where the cook can prepare meals while socialising with those in the living area.
Wood-look floors sit comfortably alongside the large deck facing the water. Fixtures, fittings and furnishings, such as sliding barn doors and a nautical-inspired pendant lamp in the dining area, are in keeping with the theme of this cute, cottage-style country home.
