Tahe sits within a simple little paddock surrounded by a working farm it was once a part of. This spectacular 2 acre hilltop property straddles the Te Arai and Mangawahi boundary.

Surrounded by lush farms while retaining easy access to pristine, unpopulated beaches Pacific Beach, Te Arai, Forestry and Mangawahi’s Ocean Beach, Tahe is not the typical holiday bach.

Tahe is a perfect balance of warm rustic elements and high ceilings, from its oiled Macrocarpa weatherboards and oversized barn doors to its polished warm brown concrete floors and bespoke fittings and finishes, resulting in an organic warmth. It is a peaceful and intimate, soulful haven.

Stretching out below the mezzanine level is a generous open plan living and dining area, a Warmington Studio wood burner is welcoming in the cooler months.

By day the house is awash with natural light and by night, carefully considered lightning creates a delightful and moody ambience.

Raw timber columns are a stunning feature of the outdoor dining area with an 8-seater artisan dining table.

An oversized barn door made from reclaimed timber leads to the two downstairs bedrooms featuring queen size beds and hand crafted custom built Garboon Ply shelving. The feature bedroom is tucked behind the black shutters at the top of the stairs, completely private with rural views and Head Rock in the distance.

Macrocarpa shiplap walls and rustic barn doors enclose the bathroom area creating the feeling of bringing the outdoors in. A beautifully carved stone basin and steel detailed mirror add to the rustic charm. The outdoor shower is a must use!

Herbs and veggies at the back door and a recently planted boutique orchard that will provide produce over the seasons.

Tahe is ideal for a couple or two, small family or a bride and groom and is also available for bespoke photo shoots and wedding photos.
