Don't dream of the Riveria
Move to the waterfront at Mapua and feel as though you are on holiday every day. Recline in your deck chair a coffee or wine on hand, the boats swinging gently on their moorings, the abundant bird life a delight to cherish and the cafes and restaurants just a short stroll further along the waterfront should cooking be off the agenda.
This drop dead gorgeous, architecturally designed cottage on Tahi Street has been refurbished to a very tasteful, high calibre and totally in sync with its surroundings. From the stunning low maintenance Abodo exterior cladding, through to the tasteful interior design/decor, the overall look is one of incredible simplistic sophistication. A fabulous place to call 'home'.
The neutral decor throughout the home is highlighted with splashes of rich colour. In the open plan dining/living area the eye catching bolt of blue on the efficient Pyroclassic freestanding fire is appealing and dramatic. High vaulted ceilings with exposed beams add volume while providing the space for the generous second bedroom on the mezzanine floor. David Truebridge designer feature lightfittings above the dining table and stairwell make an impressive statement and effective light patterns. Smart use of ply throughout the kitchen and a clever use of colour has created an artistic, functional look. The main bedroom, overlooking the water, has a bank of storage along one wall, featuring the original 1970's louvre doors. Space is at a premium in the bathroom, appointed with quality fitout including the stately freestanding bath, a generous shower and attractive tiles with heating for the cooler months.
The 1148m2 section ensures there's plenty of space if you wish to extend the home beyond its current two bedrooms and cosy open plan living. A garage for your vehicle and/or boat maybe another wish item, don't worry there's room for that too.
For the ultimate in seaside living, in a desirable location this coastal haven has to be on your 'must see list.
