The first thing you notice, apart from the view, when you visit this home, is the beautiful Marseille tile roof. There are not many Marseille tile rooves on this island. Arriving at this 2015 cedar reclad home, one has a sense of expectation.
A gentle walk down 39 steps gives you time to be excited.
Double doors open into a double height voided entrance, dining and living area. There is a real sense of drama. An area here contains the library that is begging for floor to ceiling black metal bookshelves and a library ladder.
A downstairs room could very easily be used as a winter snug.
The sleeping area upstairs has two ensuited bedrooms and a landing area with a balcony and views across the Kauakarau Bay.
It is so obvious that this home has been the focus of good architectural thought.
Colourful rugs cover the downstairs concrete floor and the wooden floors upstairs.
A downstairs bathroom also conceals the laundry.
The rather industrial kitchen is in harmony with the metal staircase.
The courtyard is accessed via doors that concertina back. In the lower garden a stand of olive trees provides delicious oil for the owners and lucky neighbours.
Double glazing, copper spouting and overhanging eaves make for confident real estate.
A single garage with room for storage sits above the staircase.
This home is going to appeal to the buyer who enjoys the aesthetic appeal of natural materials and understands the graceful manner in which not only do they age, but also inherently connect with nature.
Homes like this are rare on the island, so don’t think you will easily find another!
Rocky Bay is a community centred on The Rocky Bay Hall and the idyllic bay with its picturesque boatsheds, pontoon and Cosmo’s Folly.
Here you will find life is restorative and you could so very easily get drunk with the belief that all is well with the world!
