Yates Residence – Oropi

This recently completed large country home was designed for an Auckland couple retiring to Tauranga.

Our clients had a clear and detailed brief, part of which meant the design needed to include a large covered outdoor living area, complete with wood burning exterior fireplace.  Other design features include incorporating a 2.7m stud height throughout the home to enhance the feeling of space and stunning raking tongue & groove cedar soffits to the Entry and Portico areas.  Feature schist and vertical cedar cladding also compliments the selected large rustic brick veneer.

Overall, an outstanding result all round, with very happy clients who have said on more than one occasion that they wouldn’t change a thing!
