The geography is remarkable and the views by all accounts breathtaking.
Poised on an all-encompassing of approximately 25.94 ha stretch of Tawharanui Peninsula, Koru Hideaway occupies a cantilevered elevation over an endless scene of sea, sky, and inspiring landscapes. Koru House is an acclaimed architectural feat designed by Graham Sawell of Pyramidz Architecture.
Awarded house of the year for the North Island and people's choice by Architectural Designers of New Zealand in 2013, the home features soaring limestone walls, cast concrete, rich timbers and state of the art technologies throughout, creating a deep connection to the surrounding nature and definitive comfort.
The home's enduring design includes six bedrooms, five bathrooms, an expansive kitchen with cellar, towering glass walls, unrestricted living and dining zones, and a voluminous gallery that encircles the reflecting pool and oasis styled terraced decking. It is needless to say that being entertained here is an unforgettable experience for any guest. Koru Hideaway also serves as a luxury homestay accommodation. Perfectly situated to take advantage of the contours of the land, the house comprises a well-appointed cottage at the highest point and two lodgings, all complete with outdoor tubs and decking seizing the calming northern vistas; here guests or extended family have space to relax completely.
The landscaped grounds are wonderfully private and rich with native birdlife. Enjoy strolling your own estate while enthralled by scenery of islands and headlands to the south or rolling hills of lush bush northward. Situated only 60 minutes north of Auckland city, the Matakana region is renowned for its pristine beaches, world-class vineyards, local arts and outdoor trails.
The blend of antiquity and fabulous modernisation is a design triumph, and culmination of the brilliance and determination of the perceptive artists, who after 16 years of ownership and enjoyment, feel the time has come to let the estate go for the enjoyment and pleasure of others.
