Tucked into the south-west slopes of Pukekohe Hill is this rambling four-bedroom house designed to maximise uninterrupted views.
Opening to the north, the 394sqm family home has been positioned to capture all day sun as well as be sheltered from southerly winds. Earthy tones and stone columns settle the house into its landscape.
Premium teak features in the flooring that leads you into the home and through to the stylish open-plan living areas. The teak is also the star of drop-down ceilings with hidden LED strip lighting.
The three bathrooms feature bright floor-to-ceiling tiles to reflect light, while level-entry showers with pebble floors and feature niches complete the look.
As well as three generous living spaces, alfresco entertaining spaces and a swimming pool with cabana, the home has a separate self-contained studio unit for when friends and family
come to stay. This substantial single-level house built with weatherboards, brick veneer and double-glazed aluminium joinery has a distinct resort feel, making it a wonderful place to come home to.
