From the huge pivoting front door, this bold, clean lined, cedar home, opens to a gobsmacking vista that sweeps along a wide, columned walkway and continues through grand living, over the dunes to a dazzling ocean panorama. Brent Hulena's clear vision was for a home that maximises penetration of natural light as well as providing alternative exterior living area protection from the elements.
Built around a huge internal courtyard with built in gas and wood barbecues, a saltwater pool, outdoor fire and hidden built in speakers, the totally secure, very private, six bedroom hideaway spans 446 sq m (approx.) of living on a generous level 1,086 sq m (more or less) site.
Vast entertaining lounges at either end open to the outdoors on two aspects. Framing the courtyard and opening to the beach, the grand open plan living, dining, kitchen area reaches the full width of the site. It features an elegant long gas fire above the hearth which looks amazing at night, lit up against a stacked limestone wall.
There is a choice of three separate outdoor areas and two outdoor fires. Underfloor heating keeps concrete floors cosy in winter. Louvres and high clerestory windows allow ventilation throughout without compromising security when you are out.
Guests can occupy the three bedrooms with two bathrooms and a powder room on the lower level while the three family bedrooms plus two more bathrooms, including a huge king size master suite in its own wing, sit above enjoying the magnificent views out across the ocean to Little Barrier, Great Barrier, Tauwharanui and the Coromandel.
This is a low maintenance, easy care home with three large underground water tanks. Here is a versatile home that will suit a variety of scenarios from couples who love to entertain, families seeking a fun lifestyle to retirees who require flexible work from home spaces.
There is nothing else like this in Omaha. A grand opportunity to enjoy one of the most beautiful pristine sandy beaches in the world at your front door, this is not to be missed.
