Located in the rolling green south of Auckland, this contemporary Zen masterpiece finds harmony in the meeting of traditional and modern design styles. Built with a natural flow in mind, the house features an eye-opening Caesarstone entry that moves right into the main living area. Here, super-high ceilings trap auspicious “chi”, drawing in a wealth of sunshine. Seamlessly integrated with an open kitchen, the main living space is relaxed and functional. The high raking ceiling gives this area a sense of lightness and spaciousness. The rooms in this property – four bedrooms, three bathrooms, two living areas – create a natural curve around the outdoor living area. This gives each one privacy, with a view to the contoured deck. At the front of the property, an intricately crafted Zen pond and fountain sit in absolute serenity to calmly welcome visitors. For a more immersive experience, retreat to the main bathroom. Light, wood-look tiling envelops the bathtub with a calming sense of nature.
