HONOURING THE AVENUES.
DESIGN & BUILD
This classic weatherboard home with gable roof is a tribute to its prime Tauranga location. The owners are now retired and subdivided the original family property, building on the front of the site.
The new home is a classic weatherboard befitting of the area and is situated for all day sun and to maximise the views out over the harbour and estuary. Set over two floors the ground floor features a generous entry, family room with access to the garden, two bedrooms, family bathroom,
kitchen and utility room. A high three metre stud to the ground floor creates the feeling of volume and accentuates space.
The upper floor is almost like a self contained apartment
and can be accessed via stairs or lift. Upstairs a feature black steel window is used to flood the stairwell with natural light and creates a special design feature in the open plan kitchen and dining space.
The kitchen is at the heart of the upstairs, overlooking the dining, lounge and outdoor areas. A fireplace is positioned in the corner of the dining and stunning solid oak timber floors and wool carpets feature throughout. A feature groove ceiling with exposed rafters and multiple roof lights lets natural light into the living spaces on the south side of the home.
The open plan living is interconnected via a corner stacker slider which opens to a covered outdoor decking. Sheltered and private the space makes for an outdoor room with views out over the harbour. Exterior details include feature cedar finns to road side gable end and multiple outdoor areas.
