A story of craftsmanship

Update photo gallery on 'The Farmhouse'

With expansive views over Tauranga Harbour and positioned with Mount Maunganui as the main axis this country home sets the bench mark for rural living. A floated glass canopy roof leads you into the entry where you arrive to an 8.0m stud with exposed steel trusses through the main living area. Features of precast concrete and exposed steel beams direct to a more commercial approach. However, this is softened with Plywood ceilings and wall paneling. The introduction of local Kaimai stone also creates a timeless, crafted and permanence to the building. With 5 bedrooms, multi living areas, guest wing and expansive covered outdoor areas this home was never meant to be precious. It leads us back to tried and true design and materials which lend themselves completely to its surrounding environment and intended family living.

The level of detail and craftsmanship continue to the pool which in this particular home was completed before the home!
