Moments from Titirangi village on a north-facing hillside sits this uniquely Japanese inspired mid-century home designed by architect Witten-Hannah.
Somewhat hidden by native canopy, a garden path winds down the hillside to a covered and discrete front entrance way. Once inside, the interior suggests a Nakashima influence, revealing crafted timber interior finishes, high ceilings and angular glass skylights. An homage to the natural world.
There is a step down conversation nook' featuring built in seating and a wood burning fireplace (doubling as underfloor heating servicing portions of house). A large north-facing deck flows outward from the lower living area, giving the home extra space over summer months and framing both bush and sea views. The intricately designed original kitchen has been mostly preserved, but would benefit from some light refurbishment. The bedroom configuration is spread across three levels, with a modest sized main bedroom situated within the apex of the house. The two additional bedrooms flow from the living area. An original bathroom also now ready for a refit, but serviceable as is.
French Bay beach is close by and makes for cool respite over warmer summer months, or take a walk to the village for the soon to open Te Uru Waitakere Contemporary Gallery (formerly Lopdell House Gallery), markets and variety of local cafe's.
A rare opportunity to make your own - this very special example of mid century Titirangi architecture. C.V.$ 470,000. (2011)
