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.

This spectacular 240sqm home is built across a valley using a magnificent selection of native and exotic timbers. Designed to blend in with nature and maximising indoor - outdoor flow this home has multiple layers in an 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.

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.

Lake Tarawera has a rich history and is famous for its rainbow trout. 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 in the design of an ultra-modern lock-up-and-leave.

If you are looking for a truly unique home like no other, call us now to arrange a viewing. You will be impressed.
