Bush Embrace on Lake Tarawera
Designed by architect Simon Carnachan, to be at one with the lake and Mount Tarawera beyond, there's no more special place to unwind than at 15-17 Te Toroa Drive, Lake Tarawera.
Comprising two freehold titles in the native bush where the only thing you will hear is the rustling of the trees and enchanting bird song. This 240sqm home is built across a valley using a magnificent selection of native and exotic timbers incorporating floor to ceiling windows to embrace the picturesque surroundings.
Designed to blend in with nature and maximising indoor-outdoor flow this home has multiple layers in a three-dimensional open-plan design. Whether you are cooking a lovely meal with views of the lake and mountain, entertaining friends outside or unwinding in the spa bath, you'll always be able to enjoy what nature has to offer in total privacy with a beautiful bush backdrop.
The interior finish is a true testament to the attention to detail and perfection of this home's creators. Featuring a wine cellar, Morris & James tiles, double glazing, and a rich mosaic of timber that includes matai, Douglas-fir, rimu, redwood, jarrah, eucalypt, tawa and cedar. Raked, sarked ceilings are a major feature; mangeao and rimu create distinctive feature-walls; while benchtops are finished with laminated red beech, matai and Tasmanian blackwood.
Lake Tarawera has a rich history and is famous for its rainbow trout. With a strong community spirit, immensely popular by locals and visitors alike, Tarawera is arguably the most sought-after location in the Bay of Plenty. Easy access to the lake, walks, mountain bike trails and Rotorua city make this a perfect home for those wanting to escape the hustle and bustle, yet be close to town for everyday conveniences.
Plans are available for a second dwelling on the adjoining freehold site, incorporating the rich history of Tarawera (meaning "Burnt Spear") in the design of an ultra-modern lock-up-and-leave.
