Light above the ocean

This superbly executed home and grounds pays homage to its extraordinary oceanfront aspect.

Live on a perfect promontory bordered by bush landscaped gullies in a light filled home architecturally designed to embrace the ocean panorama with views from East Cape to Coromandel Peninsula. Arrive up an attractive private road and round a flax fringed drive to the home on its plateau 70m above the Pacific. Sweeping lawns respect an ancient pa site and protected Pohutukawa filter sensational views through scoops in the terrain. Extensive recent plantings of native trees and shrubs have added to the authenticity. While meeting the brief for a view from every room the architect has increased appreciation by creating a barrier wall like outstretched arms wrapping the rear. This intensifies the revelation of stepping into the foyer from which bedrooms fan sideways, living steps forward and stairs access the master suite. To call this a three bedroom, three-bathroom home with an office, games room and open plan living is an understatement for the sheer simplicity within and the sheer beauty that the layout delivers without, multiple doors ensuring you savour the ever changing elements integral to your environment. A sublime 2.34ha above the sea with native plantings filling the gully hillsides each side of the lawn, hugging the home behind and leaving great unimpeded views of ocean and islands across swathes of lawn.

The property is situated along the Pikowai straight, near Matata village and almost equidistant between Whakatane (25 minutes) and Mount Maunganui, Tauranga and Rotorua an easy 45 minutes drive. Worth every second to arrive home here.
