VIP access to infinite views
Spectacular views deserve a home worthy of them. This one displays a special character while providing front row seats for the panorama. The atmosphere you enjoy within this exceptional 477m2 home is only just eclipsed by the beauty that surrounds you. From what could be the most perfect site on Minden Hill you hover over the Bay of Plenty panorama - from White to Slipper Island, encompassing coast, country and city, water glistening by day, lights sparkling by night.
Revel in any weather with deep curved double glazing drawing heat to marble floors; multiple doors to the 500m2 of surrounding patio - wide expanses off living areas, covered walkways around bedrooms, a stone floored balcony of the upstairs master suite.
The koru carved in the front door, liquid glazed macrocarpa kitchen benches, rare black tawa flooring, artful bathroom vanities are examples of subtly sophisticated 'kiwi' touches which add interest and authenticity. Intelligent technology delivers computer programmed comfort, lighting and music.
The kiwi theme continues in landscaping where native trees, flaxes, grasses and ground cover alleviate mowing and attract native birds.
The 5123m2 property provides a stage set for living while its intensively planted banks drop to three 25,000 litre water tanks and to the Minden lookout below. The architecture of this Celcrete solid masonry home focuses on the curves creating a cake shaped footprint with a strategic slice on the sunniest side where the heated pool nestles in the lower courtyard accessed from warm sunny spaces and overlooked by the gallery which connects the very generous living areas to a three suite bedroom wing and stairs to the office and superbly appointed master suite where you wake to the sunrise and retire with sunset views. Iron balustrades within the home are echoed by those outside.
While definitely an entertainers' ideal this home exudes generous intimacy which embraces a couple while its expansive side welcomes family and guests. Step into the home and into your outlook and discover there's nowhere else you'd rather be. Feel above and away from it all yet live only fifteen minutes from central Tauranga, 20 from Mount Maunganui beaches, and five minutes from the local cafe and amenities at the bottom of the hill in Te Puna Village.
