Natural light and serenity define this Japanese-inspired mid-century home, designed by former Group Architect James Hackshaw in the 1960s and commissioned by its original owner, ceramic artist Len Castle.
It is easy to understand why Castle spent many years here producing some of his most well- known works and raising his family, with its peaceful style and positioning in a sunny glade surrounded by native trees.
Thoughtful renovations over the years have kept the home comfortably contemporary while maintaining the integrity of its character. Most recently, the addition of air conditioning/ heating in all rooms, and a crisp new palette which lends an air of clean sophistication.
Centred beneath the vaulted ceiling, the open plan living space is illuminated by numerous well-placed skylights and walls of windows looking out to the greenery. The modern kitchen with extended breakfast bar draws gatherings into the heart of the home, or take the celebrations out to the generous north facing deck, or relax in the spa under the trees and stars.
A second living area is the ideal space for evening movies or reading, with its own access to decking that boasts elevated views across mature bush. Also on this level are two double bedrooms and a bathroom with laundry area.
On the lower level is the master suite with large walk-in wardrobe and stylish full bathroom, including a sunken bath with a lush private view of the forest.
Storage is taken care of thanks to an extensive under house space, the site of Castle's kiln and workroom - or develop it into a work from home office or studio.
Located just minutes' drive to Titirangi village and in zone for Titirangi Primary School, this home will be a magnet for lovers of mid century design and those searching for a peaceful lifestyle.
