This sun-filled Pukawa home enjoys breathtaking views of Lake Taupo

Hear the prolific birdlife during the day while lazing on the large terrace watching the boats, reflections of the clouds on the Lake and Taupo township in the faraway distance from this home for sale. With all-day sunshine, heat pumps and a large wood burner uniquely placed, to give you cosy winters and comfortable summers. Paratiho designed by internationally renowned architect Murray Cockburn, sits on one level on a prime parcel of land, within protected native bush.

The gardens are a sight to be seen with multiple levels cascading down from the terrace to frame panoramic views of the lake. There is a more practical garden to the north with fruit trees, hazelnut grove and vegetables for off the grid lifestyle. There is a small boutique vineyard at the top of the driveway that can be purchased separately.

This haven has two impressive master bedrooms in the north wing, one with breathtaking views dropping down to the lake. The next spacious bedroom, a patio with lake views, large accessible bathroom and separate entry could easily suffice as Airbnb accommodation.

The open plan lounge with its sloping stunning wood ceiling gives you a feeling of space with a well-appointed dining area and kitchen set up for outdoor entertaining. Through the conservatory is the south wing, a further two bedrooms, third bathroom, plus tackle room for avid fly fisherfolk. Garaging is triple space, plus a fourth for the boat.
