Home of the week – 36 Taiepa Rd, Otatara


LARGE is the key word for this stunning property, sitting high and dry on 4012sq m and surrounded by bush for the ultimate in privacy and serenity.

Designed by its current owners in the 1990s, it was now time for their next adventure and for another family to live in this unique and special home.

Three stories have been used to their full potential with large families in mind.

The ground floor has a double internal access garage and large workshop.

The hub of the home, the first floor has two separate living areas and a separate spacious, light-filled, open-plan kitchen and dining area which opens to fantastic outdoor living, making it excellent for entertaining and enjoying.

Working from home or studying, the generous office on the first floor also offers plenty of natural light, with two very large windows looking out on to the deck, providing vistas of the surrounding garden.

A storage room, large laundry and separate toilet are also on the first floor.

The home has plenty of room for all the members of the family with five bedrooms.

The master bedroom has a walk-in robe and a white-tiled with black trim en suite.

Ensuring indoor-outdoor flow among the tranquil setting, the sliding door from the bedroom opens to a deck and beautiful lush, Otatara bush.

The other four double bedrooms, all with double robes, the family bathroom and playroom or hobby room with balcony are on the second floor with views overlooking the bush.

Take a walk through the trees and find yourself at the rear of the property on a sprawling lawn, edged by walnut and fruit trees, which would be large enough for most sports to be enjoyed on a summer’s day.

There is also plenty of off-street parking for the boat, trailer or caravan.
