Tuki Tuki nothing quite like it


This exceptional property is architecturally different to anything on the Hawkes Bay market, located on a private and elevated 2.2ha (more or less) site. This modern family home offers the ultimate lifestyle for those searching for an idyllic property in the ever popular Tuki Tuki Valley, an easy 15 minute drive from Havelock North. The house has been designed around eco principals with three offset curved roof sections designed with passive heating in mind, with the extra height floor to ceiling glass wall that best takes advantage of the stunning views from Mt Erin to Te Mata Peak, as well as making for cool summer days and warm cosy winters. Spread over 202sqm (more or less) the ground floor offers a unique open plan kitchen, living, dining room with high stud opening up to a terrace for enviable outdoor entertaining. A free standing wood burner is a welcome addition to the passive heating.

New sits alongside old with polished concrete flooring offset with restored native timber doors and staircase, all sourced from a Central Hawkes Bay Monastery pulled down over 30 years ago, it adds interest and warmth to the overall character of the home. Well thought out design flow includes two double bedrooms complete with built in wardrobes, a family bathroom and the separate laundry. A second lounge retreat is a quiet and peaceful enclave to enjoy away from the hub of the home. Upstairs the master bedroom opens to a small balcony which is perfect for a morning coffee while taking in the breath-taking view. This adult's only space is enhanced by the walk-in wardrobe and ensuite. On this level is a single bedroom or alternatively could be used as a study or nursery. A large storage space completes the upstairs area.

Beautiful beaches and fly fishing in the Tuki Tuki river are at your fingertips. A school bus goes past the bottom of Raratu Road offering families an opportunity for kids to catch a ride to Havelock North schools.

A property like this doesn't come up often, and there is a reason why.
