Elevated on a private peninsula above white-sand beaches, this contemporary semi-cantilevered smart Tauranga home has it all.
A meandering concrete driveway delivers you to triple garaging. Cedar cladding showcases the colossal glass front door, setting the tone for what’s inside.
LED sensor uplighting, hidden ceiling illumination and fully ducted air-conditioning complement the home’s clean lines. Solid oak and Hinuera stone create a natural ambience that contrasts superbly with the exterior steel.
