Pukenui Paradise

The ebb and flow of people in this estate is as regular, as the tide in the harbour it overlooks. Set on a peninsula, this home acts first and foremost, as a retreat-like residence incorporating generous spaces, both indoor and out. An extensive outdoor kitchen adjoins the indoor one, making for seamless flow when entertaining. Substantial space is dedicated to coffee making, a bar, fresh herb cultivation and an over-scaled scullery. Memories are evoked and stories shared about the curated treasures held readily at hand in the living room unit. Bathrooms exude a zen-like atmosphere consistent with the owner’s experience of resort spas. These relaxing spaces are supported by well-designed practical spaces such as the significant laundry and discrete office space to ensure life’s practicalities do not detract from the restorative value of this Pukenui escape.
