ONE LAST LOOK BACK

Neil relished the challenge of creating the ultimate rural home. The large courtyard house nestles comfortably into the Waiheke landscape and is redolent of European country homesteads. It is a showpiece for locally and internationally sourced materials and the rich, layered interior brings together family pieces, antiques and the modern. Warm indoor/outdoor timber ceilings mitigate the extensive use of concrete and exotic light fittings surround the 15 metre pond which lies at the centre of the tropical courtyard.
