You only need to take one look at this edgy, modern abode in Tauranga to know it’s something special. Positioned on either side of its huge central volume, raking rooftops spread their wings. Cedar weatherboard and schist cladding anchors the robust 439sqm home.
A curved wall leads from the entrance into the open-plan living area, deserverdly dubbed the Great Hall. The 4m-high ceiling with grid and batten detail demands attention above the kitchen/dining/living areas. A huge stone hearth draws you into the sitting area.
The gable roof extends out from either end of the open-plan zone, giving cover to large outdoor entertaining areas. This offers the best of both worlds, with views to the south, and sun to the north.
The master suite is pure luxury with an outlook to the water and a palatial ensuite.
The home also features a sunroom, guest suite, TV room and office, loft hobby area and a laundry and utilities room. Honestly, you couldn’t ask for much more.
This is an exceptional home designed and built on a challenging site.
