Architect's Own Home
Property ID WAI20403Architect's own home is exceptional yet also discreet its tailor-made design sitting as one with the beautiful gardens, sea and island views. Award-winning architect Peter Hill, designer of the NZ Expo Pavilion in Seville, chose this nor-west ridgeline setting for his family home, a place he could entertain but also a home offering peace and solitude when needed. This architect's view on how to live is appealing and the attention to detail, the use of premium materials, the craftsmanship and orientation of the building on the land is inspirational. Open-plan living works as one space for gatherings but allows internal division of kitchen, dining, TV room and living room. Outdoors, there's a choice of sheltered terraces. The 2.3ha of land extends to the Putiki Bay waterfront, and there's plenty of on-site parking for guests.
