A modern take on a low-slung Californian bungalow, this contemporary coastal home stands out among its peers in the popular Tauranga suburb by the sea.
Architectural ideas are expressed with confidence throughout. Layers of depth and detail celebrate the home’s construction, rather than hiding it. Noteworthy features include Vitex hardwood battens inside and out, polished concrete flooring, a contrasting black and white colour theme.
Built for a busy young family, this excellent-value build serves as a comfortable, easy care home base.
The house was designed with careful consideration to the limited space of the site, creating different areas to be enjoyed, no matter the weather or the inclination of occupants. Full-height joinery creates continuity between ceiling and soffit; floor and deck.
Two living areas, four bedrooms, two bathrooms and two outdoor areas are carefully laid out to make the most of the 209sqm footprint.
With impressive design and construction, this home offers something different in a sea of ‘all the same’.
