Rusticated-Cedar Show Home

Stepping inside this awe-inspiring rusticated-cedar show home, you’ll find yourself wanting to linger. The captivating panorama of Tauranga Harbour takes centre stage, visible from expansive windows, while sheltered outdoor areas beckon you to relax and soak it all in. But the allure extends far beyond the view. This three-bedroom, three-bathroom residence embodies laidback luxury, a testament not just to comfortable living but also to the builders’ masterful craftsmanship.


Every detail within the spacious 252sqm home reflects precise execution. Hemlock ceilings seamlessly blend with band-sawn plywood walls and speak to meticulous woodworking.  The minimalist design eliminates the need for architraves and skirting, creating clean lines and a sense of spaciousness. Timber reigns supreme, a recurring theme that showcases both functionality and warmth. It’s a seamless integration that underscores the exceptional level of care put into every aspect of this showpiece.


Open-Plan Living for Entertaining


Head downstairs, where you’ll find two bedrooms, a bathroom, a double garage, and a lounge area that effortlessly flows out onto a sheltered deck. Take the stairs – or for added convenience, the elevator – to the upper level.  Here, an open-plan living area unfolds, again maximising the stunning water views. The streamlined kitchen showcases a central island with ample seating, perfect for casual gatherings. Occupying a generous third of this floor, the master bedroom suite delivers all the luxurious extras you’d expect in a home of this calibre. From the breathtaking vistas to the meticulously crafted details, this rusticated-cedar show home offers an unparalleled living experience.
