How do you best capture the lake and panoramic mountain views your building site is blessed with? This was a chief consideration for the design of this substantial Taupō home. The solution? Three connected wings with gabled rooflines that spread across the elevated landscape and open up to the great outdoors. As a result, the owners can enjoy the special vistas from inside and out. The four-bedroom 330sqm property is a striking and attractive addition to its neighbourhood, thanks to its design, band-sawn rusticated cedar weatherboard and black vertical Linea exterior. Step inside and head into the central living wing and you’ll find the living/kitchen/dining area with impressive 4.2m-high ceilings and dark timber floors. The designer kitchen and island are bathed in light from the skylights in the vaulted ceiling. A snug media room comes off this zone. Space is not an issue here. The guest wing has two bedrooms and a bathroom, while the largest pavilion houses the main bedroom and ensuite, the fourth bedroom, an office, a laundry and a double garage.
