This three-bedroom, two-bathroom home in Tauranga is living proof of what is achievable with a restricted budget. Sited to soak up the sun, expansive oceans views wash over the well-appointed interior. Glass sliders create an easy, breezy connection between interior and exterior living spaces. A combination of richly toned cladding lends the exterior a natural feel that’s in harmony with the environment. Set under a raking ceiling, the open-plan kitchen/dining/living area is the base for everyday activity and elegant entertaining. A crisp colour palette enhances natural light, with dark accenting drawing attention to finer details.
