This retreat located on the Whitianga waterways makes the most of its setting. Colours and textures echo the natural environment and the floorplan encourages an indoor-outdoor lifestyle.
Upon arrival, a fence built out of tōtara, sourced from nearby Pauanui 50 years ago, stands tall and welcomes guests into the property.
Inside, the space is modern and marvellous. A double-sided stone fireplace and feature wall in the lounge area complements the home’s exterior.
The kitchen is complete with a hidden walk-in pantry and is full of luxe touches, including integrated appliances and stone benchtops. Enjoy breakfast at the waterfall island bench, or step out onto the sun-drenched wraparound deck. A barbecue area, spa and beautifully landscaped grounds all overlook the water.
Up the staircase with glass balustrade, the four bedrooms all have large windows to capture the view.
Also, with a private boat ramp and helipad, it’s easy to set off on an adventure from this stunning home.
Lots of memories will be made here.
