STRIKING ON TAY STREET.
DESIGN & BUILD
This large family home sits pride of place on a corner in downtown Mount Maunganui not far from the beach.
Designed as two wings the home takes the shape of an
L to master family play and family privacy and make
the most of the established section.
Finished in a charcoal cedar ply and cedar batten the home is in keeping with the relaxed beach environment
and softened by the established Pohutukawa which
borders the section.
A chimney which is built from brick and stagger laid contrasts against the dark exterior in white and is finished with an aluminium finn chimney cap.
The home has pitched roofs elevating the sense of space in the main living area with vaulted ceilings and exposed rafters while maximising the space for a second level to the back of the property where a workspace and guest area is housed.
The interior of the home features polished concrete floors throughout the entry and living spaces which are beautifully marbled for effect. A designer kitchen and custom in-built cabinetry give some definite form and division to the large open plan living space.
Centred in the living space is a floor to ceiling feature wall of staggered laid brick which creates a connection between the and the interior. A gas fire place, In-built day beds with storage underneath finish the living space creating a soft and homely environment.
Between the two wings of the home and directly off the living space is an outdoor entertaining zone featuring a louvre covered outdoor area nestled between the wings for year round outdoor living.
On the ground floor the living wing has a powder room and purpose built utility space for this busy family. Upstairs is a guest bedroom with ensuite, an office and additional loft space for storage.
In the family’s private wing there is a sense of restfulness. The wing is carpeted for warmth and comfort. The wing features a media room, two smaller bedrooms and family bathroom with the master bedroom at the end of the wing complete with walk-in wardrobe and ensuite.
