Views from dawn until dusk
The superb views from this elevated site are enough to inspire a move and the innovatively designed home will further strengthen the soundness of your decision.
The dramatic 1.1 hectare (more or less) site on the slopes of Mount Pirongia is a place with tremendous spirit. The views embrace Pirongia, Kakepuku and Maungatautari and on a clear day the Tongariro National Park mountains can be seen in all their splendor.
The striking 282 square metre (more or less) home has a commanding position and its design enables spectacular views from every vantage point. Entry to the home is via a grand gallery like foyer with a four metre high stud. Both living and bedroom wings flow from here, embracing the courtyard and lap pool. Outdoor living may be enjoyed while taking in the wider landscape from this courtyard or equally, there's two other sheltered sitting areas from which to enjoy the outdoors from.
From the gallery you'll gain access to the media room which could be repurposed as an office or third bedroom. The main living zone is divided into three distinct areas, being a dining room, kitchen and lounge room, each flowing into the next.
The bedroom wing features the master bedroom with its en suite and walk through wardrobe. The guest bedroom and bathroom are in the other direction as is the utility area with the laundry, storeroom and integrated double garage.
Easy care and low maintenance native inspired gardens compliment the primarily cedar clad home. The raised gardens are a practical addition providing a sense of self sufficiency through the provision of herbs and vegetables. Added to this is grazing for stock and an area of indigenous bush to attract birdlife.
Located to the south west of Pirongia with its vibrant village atmosphere, this home will be attractive to a sophisticated family looking for both a home and a base to work remotely from, although, given the views, one wonders how much serious work will be undertaken.
