It's a funky 1950's-1970's renovated home, with character features and a great layout. The house is elevated across three levels with decks off the living areas and 3 of the bedrooms so you can follow the sun all day, and there are sea and mountain views every direction you look. The spacious top floor contains 1 king bed, a divan daybed and an ensuite. The middle floor has 2 queen bedrooms with sea and rural views and decks. The newly renovated kitchen has views to mount Karioi, a smeg freestanding oven and is well eqipped to cook for groups. There is an 8 seater dining opening to decking overlooking the bay.
