DESIGN & BUILD
Completed in 2020 this contemporary home was built over the edge of the Matua ridge line with stunning views overlooking the Tauranga harbour, Tauranga Port and Mount Maunganui.
The home’s modernist design was created by Matt Hodson at Insight Architecture. The build required 7 metre deep underground piles anchoring the house into the ridge line.
The home has a structural split level ground floor slab and is timber and steel construction.
The exterior features large format tiles from Laminex, vertical cedar from Hermpac and vertical Aluminium shiplap from Nu-Wall. Alucobond parapet fascias and custom aluminium parapet cap flashings finish the exterior cladding with a sleek and robust finish.
Designed and built to maximise the views from every aspect of the site the home is 340m2 the home is four bedrooms, three bathrooms and features multiple indoor living zones which have outdoor access at every point. Large floor to ceiling architectural suite joinery units with Low E glass (APL) have been used.
With 102m2 of decking and two outdoor living areas both with louvred roofs and one with fire and outdoor television the outdoor spaces have been positioned for shelter from the North Westerly winds.
State of the art technology including ducted air conditioning, a full smart home automation system and Photovoltaic solar system have all been employed along with specialty feature lighting by Liv Light.
The kitchen designed by Kitchen Business features a full scullery. With a window seat and out door access directly off the kitchen the space is perfect for entertaining including the television carefully disguised above the cooking hob.
All bathrooms are fully tiled and the powder room is accessed through a secret door built into a feature timber wall. A feature steel framed door into the powder room made by Boshier Engineering is also a wow factor.
With Bremworth carpets from Gerrand Floorings and engineered oak flooring the home is the ultimate in luxurious comfort.
