pukekura house

This lean, low-profile home strikes a balance between contemporary minimalism and practical family-friendly living. With striking vertically clad cedar and a contrasting black iron façade, a boardwalk invites visitors into the welcoming embrace of a timber-lined entrance, shrouded with palm fronds and leafy planting.

The U-shaped floor plan creates an entertainer’s-dream courtyard with a fireplace and rustic Corten steel wood storage positioned as the focal point. Housing four generous bedrooms, two luxurious bathrooms, a TV/playroom, a separate office and central kitchen with a generous scullery, the home has a light, airy interior with polished concrete floors and warm neutral colour theme throughout.

A contrasting elegant kitchen in inky tones opens out into a spacious open plan living area with extensive floor-to-ceiling glazing, promoting the feeling of bringing the outdoors in. Deep-toned textured tiles with earthy green feature walls and warm timber accents used in the bathrooms, echo the moody tones of the kitchen and have an understated elegance, invoking a calm tranquility.

Covered entertaining areas, decks and boardwalks surround the home, so the occupants are spoilt for choice with numerous options for outdoor living and entertaining. To complete this outdoor oasis, all areas overlook a resort-style pool and enviable velvet-like lawns, while a private outdoor spa area, off the master bedroom wing provides a secluded getaway from the general hubbub of the home.
