About this property
Set directly on the reserve that unfurls before the lake, the property which holds a half share of 1122 sq. meters can never have its view compromised. Easy care gardens, minimal lawns and established plantings of buxus hedges and topiary ensure maximum visual effect with minimal maintenance required.
Solid masonry in construction and offering absolute street appeal from corinthian columns and Italian clay tiles this Mediterranean style home makes a bold and handsome statement on the shores of this great and mighty lake.
The tiled entry foyer and gallery makes for a welcoming point on arrival. The large formal sitting room adjoins the formal dining room complete with wide windows and a gas fireplace that lends a sense of ambience to the spaces. Next to the dining room through doors either side of the fireplace a study boasts its very own fireplace making it a restful situation for work and time out.
All of these areas open to the expansive wrap around balcony and take in the expansive vista of the ever changing sparkling waters of Lake Taupo and the towering edifice of New Zealand's iconic snow capped Mt Ruapehu.
The large highly functional entertainers kitchen with solid granite bench tops adjoins an additional living room that opens onto a charming outdoor entertaining courtyard complete with fireplace. The courtyard is sheltered by established plantings and vine covered beams making it a wonderful area for outdoor BBQs and Mediterranean style alfresco living.
The southern side of the house offers a secondary alfresco courtyard furnished tastefully with an Italian water feature.
The upstairs master suite is one of the additions by the current owners and includes a large private lounge with a sunny balcony. The adjoining bedroom is granted magnificent views over the lake and out towards Acacia Bay. The large bedroom enjoys a sizeable en- suite and a very generous walk- in wardrobe.
