Take a much-loved 1970s home on a coveted site with 180-degree views of Lake Taupō and the surrounding mountains. Add an architect’s brief to maintain as much of the character of the original home as possible, and mix in a design focused on modern life and entertaining. This recipe for blending the old and new has served up a flawless home renovation for current and future generations of the owners’ family to enjoy.

A foodie’s kitchen was created using a combination of stainless steel, oak, stone and glass, while a climate-controlled wine cabinet and scullery leave you wanting for nothing.

The 500sqm home, with four bedrooms and four bathrooms, has several outdoor living spaces to choose from, offering flexibility in the changeable Taupō climate. The central enclosed courtyard connects to the interior kitchen and living spaces.

A geothermal spring was drilled on site to create a comfortable temperature throughout the home and to heat the swimming pool and spa.

A lush living wall gives a tropical feel and his-and-hers alfresco baths complete a very special outdoor area.
