Palm Trees and Summer Breeze in Takapuna

This mid-century-style home in Takapuna demonstrates the power of design, where the geometric white exterior and palm-filled outdoor spaces create a Palm Springs vibe. The 385sqm four-bedroom house is a masterpiece of impeccable craftsmanship, with every detail thoughtfully considered and executed.

One of the standout features of this home is the exposed bricks with bagged and plaster finishes on the exterior. This touch, combined with the missing bricks on the entry wall that lend a breeze-block effect, creates an intriguing and visually appealing facade.


Seamless Flow and Outdoor Living

Inside, the home offers a seamless flow between the kitchen-living-dining area, the backyard, and the courtyard. The ground floor features cedar and glass panels that slide open to create an open-air living experience. This design element complements the connection between the indoor and outdoor spaces and allows natural light to flood the home, creating a bright and airy atmosphere.


Magnificent Focus On Functionality

The kitchen, a magnificent insertion within the space, is a standout feature. It features a wet bar, scullery, a stylish mix of blonde wood cabinetry, grey stone benches, and splashback. The kitchen’s design is the perfect mix of functionality and style, making it a focal point of the home.

The home also offers generous living spaces upstairs, with three spacious bedrooms, each with its own bathroom. There’s also a smaller guest room for those occasional visitors. The main bedroom is luxurious, featuring a walk-in wardrobe and ensuite with a freestanding bath, an impressive green stone vanity, and a shower with a large skylight above, creating the illusion of bathing outdoors.


California Dreamin

The top floor features timber shutters, which create privacy and shade for the bedrooms and add a nature-inspired touch to the home. This, along with the other elements of the home, truly showcases the California dream.
