Property: 22 Miles Lane, Tauriko, Tauranga (Bay of Plenty, New Zealand)
Savour the serenity of a sunny north facing haven where you live in a peaceful paradise overlooking private parklike grounds. You’ll appreciate the qualities of workmanship and design its displays, the way every space works in synergy with the whole. Through the double front doors, admire the grounds spread out before you, take the hall left and find a main lounge bathed in warmth and sunshine, flanked by doors to pool and patio one side and LouvreTec covered outdoor living the other. The lofty cathedral ceiling drops one side to a conversation pit surrounded by bi-fold windows overlooking the pool.
The hall to the right enters open plan living where Tasmanian blackbean tops the benches of a comprehensive kitchen with direct access to the covered patio. From the dining space you step up to a snug family room inviting cosy evenings by the fire, snoozing in the afternoon sun. From the bedroom wing where you can shower in the mastersuite facing walled foliage, to the guest studio at the opposite end, this home consistently exhibits crafted materials. The exterior is encased in plaster over cavity brick, roofed with clay tiles, the spouting all copper. Rimu, macrocarpa and cedar appear in joinery, skirtings and doors. Deep windows and bi-fold doors ensure the entire home opens up to the grounds.
The developed grounds can be enjoyed from almost every window, or in the patio surrounded solar heated pool. Schist pillars frame wide steps making an entrance from the street and repeat in hedge bordered steps to the lower lawn with its garden shed/workshop. The double garage is flanked by the guest studio with its own bougainvillea draped courtyard and a big office or storage room. A genuine haven where you can close off the world and enjoy the sounds of silence while living less than ten minutes from Tauranga’s CBD, five minutes from local popular schools. Miles Lane is a no exit road leading to a riverside reserve with boardwalks and jetty.
