Property Description

Situated on an elevated prime Taupo location on the corner of Harvey Street and Shepherd Road with breath-taking views of the lake and mountains, this extraordinary property is on the market for the first time in almost 30 years.

This masterpiece from highly acclaimed architect, the late John Scott, is a serene single-level home formed by a series of interconnected living spaces around a central entry court with carefully located windows that let the outside in. Each space has a unique relationship and vista into the thoughtfully designed, and established garden surrounding the house, and to the landscape beyond.

Feel uplifted as you experience each tranquil open room, filled with light created by the high vaulted ceilings and light lanterns, linked together by low, intimate spaces.

Original John Scott design details and materials selected for their honesty, simplicity and permanence are evident throughout: the use of solid timbers (particularly rimu), pivot doors, crafted door handles, blockwork and timber window shutters.

All modernisation work in the last 25 years is true to the original design and detail, maintaining its authenticity throughout. This work has been meticulously undertaken by an architect who is a Fellow of the NZIA, in conjunction with the original builder, well-known local craftsman, Huia Randell.

Other distinctive features of this home include an indoor open-air hot pool ideal for night-time stargazing, thermal bore for underfloor thermal heating and hot water supply. An open fire in the lounge and two heat pumps, create a warm and welcoming home.

And so the time has come to say a sad, but very fond farewell to this beloved family home and to let others come and make their happy memories in such a special place. Indeed, lucky is the family who take over this property which is quite simply sublime; inside and out.

Discerning buyers will be lining up for this one - so come and join the queue! Contact Penny or Sacha without delay.
