Strikingly different, huge 480m2 floor area on an elevated site with commanding views over the Ohiwa Harbour and beyond. This huge home boasts five double bedrooms and five bathrooms (including four ensuites). Built using an engineered braced pole and beam system with insulated infill, the construction system and structure are remarkably strong. The insulation method ensures the interior climate remains constant through the seasons - warm in winter and cool in summer.
Living areas are impressive. The kitchen is large enough to compliment a small restaurant and features cabinetry made from 1000-year old Kauri salvaged from mountain tops of Coromandel. Fitted with quality appliances the space incorporates the large dining area and together with the lounge is the focal hub of the home.
A look-out tower highlights the formal entrance and reception area below as you approach. The entrance/reception area flows through into the impressive lounge. This vast space is accentuated by a high stud and cathedral ceiling and an attractive use of timber complemented by the adobe style fireplace. The lounge (as well as dining and some of the bedrooms) opens out to the north, sun and marine views.
This is an extraordinary home! An Italian tile theme is carried through the kitchen and bathroom areas, with differing colours and designs in each. There is a double garage included in the layout. The situation is private and exclusive with land surrounding the home covered in native and exotic vegetation. The vista overlooks the waters of the Ohiwa Harbour and extending over sea to take in the East Coast and as far as iconic White Island (Whakaari), New Zealand's most active cone volcano.
Located in beautiful Eastern Bay of Plenty the property is just 18 Km from Whakatane and 10 Km from Ohope Beach. Buses transport students to the Ohope Primary School and Whakatane Secondary Schools.
