Main Retreat: Private exquisitely finished luxury residence with expansive 180 degree uninterrupted water views from every room. This property is the epitome of relaxation and privacy with not a soul in sight, relax on the extensive decking and marvel at the stunning evening sunsets or the beautiful, clear, star studded vista above while the native New Zealand Moreporks coo – It doesn’t get much better than this!
Located in one of the most unique and understated areas of Northland, Tinopai is a great place to get away from the stresses of the city and everyday life. Guests at this property have stated that they have had the ‘best nights sleep’ and have felt so relaxed and rejuvenated after staying here that they don’t want to leave!
Featuring 5 bedrooms and 4 bathrooms – the original part of the house was designed by Richard Craig and completed in 2007, and the extension (2 bedrooms, lounge, main bathroom, master ensuite and huge double garage) was completed in 2011. Along with the extension, the kitchen was completely refitted to the highest of specifications including Omega gas hob and electric oven, European tap ware and fittings, custom coloured cork flooring and custom local made ROXX bench top, just to name a few. As a bonus you will never run out of hot water when guests come to stay as this property has three large water tanks, two hot water cylinders and two water pumps for the ultimate in hot water pressure!
The outside of this home is just as impressive, with outdoor lighting, a concrete courtyard, huge decks and extensive garden plantings including a heritage tree orchard grown from seedlings sourced from New Zealand’s only organic garden centre Kaiwaka Organics (Formerly Koanga Gardens). Finished with Metro Arctic blue glass (the highest rated glass for blocking UV rays), Double glazing throughout the extension, Vantage joinery plus New Zealand grown Macrocarpa and Pine exterior with Timbakote stain – designed to suit the New Zealand climate, this will not need retouching for at least another 10 years.
