Simon Carnachan is responsible for designing a number of New Zealand's landmark beach houses. Calianne is a grand fusion of Simon's creativity, construction expertise and a substantial budget. The voluminous roof draws on influences from the communal buildings of the Pacific Islands. A theme that extends to the flow through ventilation, multiple adjustable louvres of cedar and glass: Air-conditioning courtesy of sea breezes.
Fringed with a clipped hedge of Hibiscus and surrounded on 3 sides by flat lawns large enough to zip flick a Frisbee. Out front and centre: Doubtless Bay. The front garden ends with the sand of Coopers Beach. A stand of 6 mature Pohutukawa lean right out over the sand. They provide a degree of privacy and infinitely adjustable sunbathing shade.
The property is ideal for a multi-family holiday. Encompassing 335sqm the home features 2 master bedroom suites and 3 lounges in the core dwelling and accommodation for a further 12 people in the Southern wing. Upstairs, fun bunk rooms for up to 8 children have skylights that swing open to reveal the Milky Way. A central courtyard is completely private from the outside world and serves as the entertainment hub.
Appointments and chattels are of a quality that are befitting a home of this standard. Coffee machine, 2 large fridges, 2 dishwashers, monitored security system, unlimited speedy wi-fi, 2 TV lounges (no TV in the main lounge). A pair of 2016 Viking Kayaks and accessories. One a Profish 400, a purpose built fishing kayak, complete with a kit that includes all the tackle you'll need to be grilling Snapper come sunset. The other an Espri model, a bay cruiser with a few rod-holders.
There are a handful of properties of this calibre in Doubtless Bay. Only one is available for a few select groups of guests that seek a stay in a Kiwi Beach house designed by one of our most revered architects. A combination of design and location that delivers a perfect sub-tropical cocktail of casual cool class.
