A Lightness of Being on the Tauranga Harbour
A privately peaceful coastal lifestyle like no other. An architecturally designed home which sits lightly on the land and embraces its environment.
Let there be light, air, water, space and an atmosphere soothing to the soul in this very special home with its spectacular harbour frontage. The flat 7866sqm property merges into the wetland of the inlet, its vista spanning the Tauranga harbour past Omokoroa point, towards the city and Mauao, with Matakana Island in the foreground and Mayor Island hovering on the horizon.
Architect Ian Thorn designed the 405sqm home (built in 2004 employing full cavity construction) as a gallery for the views and a warm, sunny, very spacious yet satisfyingly intimate place to enjoy alone or share. The kitchen/dining space is a peaceful pavilion paying homage to the panorama. Linked living spaces each have their own ambiance, the spacious recessed office/library a joy. From the wide spacious foyer, the home branches past an internal water sculpture to the living areas, down a hall past a huge laundry to the private master suite. There is another light filled hall to a bedroom wing at the other side of the home making it ideal for a family or to welcome friends or paying guests to stay. The 'keyhole' pool is just right for a cool off on a hot summer day, perhaps after a game of petanque.
Serenely simply landscaped with hedges designating areas, including ample parking space by the triple garage. Eight mature and a young avocado tree flourish and some citrus grows on a bank with flaxes and other plantings which border the wetland. Nothing to impede the views which are the main reason you will love living here on this quiet coastline between Tauranga and Katikati. Boundary indicative only.
