At a council-rated 293m2 (more or less), 32 Okareka Loop Road is arguably the most stylish as well as one of the largest homes for sale at delightful Lake Okareka today. It also has views across two lakes to mighty Mount Tarawera and is minutes' walk to the lake, and just 12 minutes from the centre of Rotorua. The house was conceived and constructed by the marine designer who became New Zealands (and the worlds) most experienced builder of custom, luxury catamarans. Unsurprisingly the house has an aquatic feel, in keeping with its lake location. This multi-level home of three bedrooms, two bathrooms and three toilets provides for comfortable living: the ensuite master bedroom with Juliette balcony has spectacular views. Bathrooms, lounge, dining rooms and upper story bedrooms feature artful native Rimu ceilings and/or walls. The open-plan living is ideal for a holiday home while highly desirable as an executive family home. Indoor-outdoor flow from the living area opens on extensive views of Lake Okareka - one of Rotoruas jewels. The kitchen and dining areas feature rimu ceilings, setting off the cantilevered Rimu breakfast bar and matching rimu dining setting. There is lots of storage and the largest Smeg Induction cook top, plus matching Parmco side-draft vent. The Rimu food preparation benches are beautifully illuminated by the kitchen skylights and the kitchen entry framed by feature ships masts. With sails and three-level decking on a large section with plenty of garage-space and off-street parking; this is a fine holiday or executive home. Most of the chattels can be purchased with the house.
