Thanks to some savvy reorganising, this refreshed five-level home on the doorstep of Tauranga now makes the most of its multiple living platforms.
The interior exudes wonderful flow and functionality, starting in the new entry foyer. Stairs invite you up to the open-plan living area, which incorporates the kitchen and dining space, lounge and library.
A cathedral ceiling and wood fire create appealing ambience here. Huge windows frame enviable garden and estuary views.
French doors open to a northfacing covered living area that’s at one with nature. Significant decking and steps allow access to different outdoor spaces.
The existing weatherboard exterior has been given a spruce up, enhanced with cedar accents. New double glazed anodised aluminium joinery units help to keep things cosy inside.
In place of the old kitchen, a new master bedroom with cathedral ceiling and well-appointed wardrobe awaits. Its retreat-style ensuite boasts a spacious shower that soaks up the scenery.
