Set amid the hills outside Tauranga, this refreshingly simple piece of modern architecture revels in sun and a panoramic vista. It’s an intimate retreat just minutes from the city.
The carefully designed 199sqm package dedicates a good portion of its space to the heart of the home. The generous open-plan living/kitchen/dining area features bifold doors to the south, and a huge over-cladding stacker to the north. This design really brings the outdoors in.
Raking ceilings and floor-to-ceiling windows in the master bedroom take full advantage of the views. A walk-in wardrobe and designer ensuite sit neatly behind.
The west wing of the home houses a private, sound-proofed media room and accommodation for guests. The fully insulated garage includes a hobby area and extra space for storage.
The clean lines of the exterior are accentuated by panel cladding and rusticated cedar features. Overheight joinery is a reminder of the home’s true purpose – to allow occupants to relax and enjoy the beautiful setting.
