OPULENCE MEETS NATURE
When architecture and seclusion come together, the result is something quite amazing. The award-winning as-new home tucked away in the Mahakirau Forest Estate epitomizes the sanctuary within. Coloursteel and Cedar Shiplap have been married together beautifully to create something modern but unobtrusive amid its treed surroundings. The extremely secluded 14.36ha property offers stunning native bush, a number of waterfalls and a huge variety of birds and endangered plant species. The eastern aspect has unobstructed views down the valley towards Mercury Bay. The interior offers 3 double bedrooms (master with ensuite of designer quality), guest bathroom and separate laundry; an open-plan kitchen/dining/lounge (log burner) with sliding stacker doors either side that open up to the valley below; and a very modern kitchen with soft-touch cabinetry and antique lighting. This home won Highly Commended in the Resene Architectural Design Awards 2016: Residential Compact New Home up to150m2. It is also featured on the front cover of the August 2017 issue of NZ House & Garden.
