maungakawa hillside home

This dramatic home sits on the hillside of Maungakawa mountain overlooking Cambridge. The low-lying structure snakes along the ridge line, blending seamlessly into its natural surroundings yet still making its serene presence felt.  

The impact of this striking cedar and Eurostyle iron clad home is immediate as soon as you pull up to the front entrance. The moment you walk through the front door you feel enveloped by a natural oasis, a world away from the bustle of town living. 

The breathtaking views are taken full advantage of from every significant vantage point of this home, with large glazed panels on all north facing elevations. 

The muted grey/ greens and neutral tones used throughout the home create a quiet calm and mimic the surrounding native bush. The main living areas boast concrete tiled floors, customized timber fittings and accents of matt black lighting and tap-ware. 

What the client had to say: “We love the way it sits on the landscape. Although it is a modern build it is so sympathetic to the surroundings. Such a comfortable family home.”
