Who am I to disagree with the significant thought, passion and attention to detail that has fused into producing what is described, by the current owner and designer, as a 'private sanctuary' rather than a 'public statement'. Inspired by 'Fibonacci's Golden Ratio Within Nature' and built in 2013 this beautifully considered home folds into the surrounding landscape, hidden from afar, yet revealing the essence upon closer inspection. Every consideration of the environment the dwelling inhabits has been measured; the pitch of the roof calculated by averaging the slope angle of surrounding terrain, the shape of the land determining the horizontal house angle. Two seamlessly connected 'viewing boxes' frame expansive vistas that are cubic and restful. With an emphasis on the quality and efficiency of the internal space, an early design brief was adapted removing any hallways or wasted space from the blue print. Comprising two generous bedrooms, which both benefit from this design consideration and enjoy expansive views over the Tasman Sea, The Cape and Nine Mile Beach. The main bedroom with own ensuite sits adjacently to the second bedroom which functions easily during the day as an additional living area. The open plan kitchen, dining and living area feature recycled Kauri beams framing the inspiring views during daylight hours. By night the focal point turns towards the centrally located wood-burner complete with a bespoke fire surround. Set on a private three acre land parcel, that has potential for future subdivision. The Buller District is now burgeoning with leisure activities and with direct views to 'Nineez' surf break, hunting, fishing, diving and cycling pursuits offer additional quality options for adventure with the convenient amenities of near-by Westport Town when required.
