The discreet frontage of this Tauranga residence cleverly conceals the extraordinary family home within. Open the keyless front door and come face to face with unencumbered Mauao views.
This dwelling has class, style and, most importantly, incredible functionality. A well-designed kitchen features three stacked ovens conveniently located next to the unobtrusive hob and work bench. The fire is the focal point of the spacious lounge. Smart shelving creates space for a colourful ceramic display.
Three spacious bedrooms are graced with luxurious carpet. Two asymmetrical retro shower rooms display matching feature mirrors and a single sink.
Outdoor living is key to this design. The flow from the courtyard pool and spa area through the open-plan interior to sunken seating at the waterfront has been shrewdly considered. Smart solar heats the pool and hot water during summer. In winter the underfloor heating and radiators are fed by the wood burner.
Skylights offer maximum natural light while retaining that all-important privacy.
