Way-above the Waikato

Nestled amongst native bush and birdsong, high up above the tree-tops, this unique home is stylish, peaceful and enjoys maximum light and spectacular views.

Upon arrival, you will be impressed by the use of natural materials incorporated into the design and build of this unique home. Raking roof lines and large floor to ceiling sliding doors merge seamlessly with the bush and surrounding landscape. To the north you are embraced by beautiful mature native trees as your back drop and to the west, you have the stunning Waikato Basin. 270 degree views reaching as far as the eye can see to the majestic mountains of Kakapuka, Pirongia, Karioi (Raglan) and Hakaramata that embrace the Waikato, are quite simply rejuvenating and breath-taking.

The main home incorporates open-plan living areas, surrounded by floor to ceiling sliding doors that open out to large decks, some covered and some open to the elements. Your spacious designer kitchen allows for easy movement around the kitchen whilst creating nourishing meals for your family and friends. There is a family room to relax and a dining room to entertain which steps down to the sunken lounge. This is a cosy spot to curl up in front of the open fire which heats all of the open plan living area. Imagine yourself in anyone of these areas peacefully contemplating life whilst enjoying all that surrounds you outdoors.

The large master bedroom enjoys views over the Waikato via floor to ceiling windows and sliding doors. There is a large walk-in robe and a spacious ensuite. The ensuite enjoys a deep bath perfectly situated in the corner right next to the large windows.

Accessed from the house by a covered walk-way, perfect for a teenage family, work from home scenario, retiring couple with visiting family or homestay option; is a two bedroom apartment that has been designed in keeping with the house. This could easily be converted to a three bedroom with lounge as it has a large four work station office adjoined to it with a separate entrance.

There is plenty of storage space with a 6m x 10m double internal garage, 90 sqm high-stud shed with concrete floor and power, 20 cubic metre wood shed and a garden shed.

Based on wises maps, the property is approximately seven kilometres from the centre of Cambridge and will be approximately five kilometres from the SHWY1 Cambridge bypass which is currently under construction, so working in Auckland and owning this lifestyle could be a reality.

Set apart from the rest by its location, views, design and ambience, this naturally sheltered house is an award winning home, winning the A.D.N.Z National Best Single Dwelling in 2002.

With bush-walks on your door-step and zoned for quality schooling, there is simply too much to mention here - you'll have to come along and see for yourself how truly special this home really is.
