WHAT’S ON THE MARKET
This single-storey, three-bedroom holiday home was designed by Australian architect James Grose in collaboration with builders in New Zealand. The property is located in the heart of Bay of Islands, a popular resort area in the northern part of the North Island. In 2008, it won the New Zealand Master Builder’s “Home of the Year” award. The house combines a steel frame with corrugated iron cladding and extensive use of double-paned sliding glass windows. These materials give the building a lightness that makes it sit easily in the landscape. The property also has an outdoor covered deck that looks out onto remarkable views of typical New Zealand watery scenery. The house is for sale for 1.4million USD (£886,000).
