Perched on a ridge overlooking both sides of the Marahau estuary, every room in this unique home offers up a view of superb natural beauty. The large lounge windows look across the Marahau estuary to Adele Island and the Abel Tasman National Park beyond. This vista is continued along the length of the open plan dining and kitchen areas. The dining room has double doors that open on to a north-facing patio and the bi-fold kitchen windows accentuate the indoor-outdoor flow.

Built with earth block and wood, this inviting home is light, warm and airy. The vaulted lounge ceiling is lined with Southland beech, and there are macrocarpa, cedar and rimu accents throughout the house. Plaster and earth finishes ensure a consistent style that sits comfortably with the surrounding environment. Paths, pavers, decking and a decent lawn separate the house from the surrounding native forest, but keep it close enough that there's a real sense of living in rural New Zealand. Think tuis, tree ferns and flax, with all the convenience of a modern home.

The master bedroom, with built-in wardrobe, opens onto a private patio facing north and east, to capture morning sun and the ever-present view of the National Park. Two further bedrooms look out over native forest and the inner Marahau estuary, creating plenty of space for family or guests. The bathroom is tidy and comfortable, making use of the southern side of the house, looking on to lush ferns and greenery just outside the window.

There's decent storage in hallway cupboards and the laundry is tucked away behind lovely wooden doors. There's a tub, washer and dryer. The large double garage creates even more storage and could fit vehicles two-deep, making covered space for boat, caravan or workshop. The south-eastern aspect of the property maximises the inner-estuary view for long summer evenings and golden sunsets.
