About this listing
Architecturally designed by Barry Sweet in 1997, this home has flexible living and sleeping spaces over three floors. This makes it ideal for different generations to have their own bedroom, lounge and bathroom on a separate floor (sharing the kitchen). Sturdily built with concrete block, (covered in plaster) a steel and concrete flooring system and vertical cedar, it is no wonder it won an award in the House of the Year competition. There are substantial views from both the first and second floors. Two decks on separate levels let you enjoy the outdoors in good weather and adjoin living and sleeping spaces. One has amazing views and receives all day sun. The other is sheltered and private with a spa pool and a covered seating area.

It feels like a very large apartment but you have no adjoining properties (which means all day sun from all directions) It is perfectly set up as an inter-generational home or holiday home with electric gates and parking for a boat or for extra cars. There is a generous double internal access garage large enough to store kayaks, skis and bikes as well as your cars.

There is no need for a garden shed either as there are no lawns to mow. So, such an easy place to holiday then lock up and leave or stay "on holiday" here all the time! The large room on the ground floor could be a media, games room or bunk room, and another room could easily be a workshop.

So many possibilities here and plenty of time to enjoy all that Taupo has to offer. There is still room to add your own style by updating some of the décor, but there are some features you may want to keep, for example the timber paneling in the stair well and on the living room ceilings. As this is such a rare opportunity, I suggest you make an appointment to view sooner rather than later!
