eHaus Whakamarama

Whakamārama, New Zealand
143 Youngson Road Whakamārama Bay of Plenty 3179 NZ

This home is located in a rural lifestyle block in Whakamarama. With 3 bedrooms and 2 bathrooms, the family also enjoy the open plan living/dining area and library office to take in the landscape. The house has uPVC European engineered joinery and a hot water heat pump. Minimal glazing on the western wall ensures that the house meets just 1% of the year above 25 degrees in the sunny Bay of Plenty this result is good. The clients have also invested in a 20kW battery storage system, solar PV and have a Tesla Model 3 on order. They said “other people get a pool but we got a small power station!”
