Bethlehem – 5 bedrooms
A big Bethlehem beauty designed for an expansive family life of health and happiness
This generous home takes the Mediterranean approach to orientation, thermal mass, and harnessing the elements to best advantage and applies it to the local environment. Built sixteen years ago and still performing exactly as intended throughout the changing seasons. Solid block masonry construction and superior insulation wrap the home while its wings fan forward to the sun to ensure heat is absorbed and released when warmth is needed.
It’s a fresh, vibrant, airy atmosphere where raked ceilings create lofty living areas anchored by a very social kitchen backed by a comprehensive scullery. Multiple doors open for summer air flow and access to an outdoor playground of party sized patio, a pool, heated via under-ground pipes and passively heated by the sun, conceived in sympathy with the home, and plenty of fenced lawn for kids and dogs to dash about, room for the volley ball net or cricket pitch.
The separate self-contained one-bedroom studio with street frontage adds home based business and family or hosting accommodation options.
The prime position near the top of a cul de sac, provides privacy, elevation and sunshine, plus proximity to Bethlehem Town Centre and Tauranga’s CBD. Local reserves with cycling and walking tracks are just down the road. Boundary indicative only.
