Northern Escape

Breakaway Living: an idyllic retreat from the city


The owners of this rural retreat in Whananaki, identified the essential quality for successful holiday living right from the outset: pared-back, stylish simplicity. This getaway, with its warm plywood wall panelling, its take-the-knocks timber flooring, its entertainer’s kitchen and its casual-yet-contemporary good looks works equally well as a couple’s retreat as it does for a busy family. The living and bedroom wings wrap around a centralised covered deck for sheltered alfresco living in all seasons while floor-to-ceiling glazing helps to maximise the green-field outlook. Relaxation has never been so easy.
