Located at Coromandel New Zealand the house overlooks a really scenic area with the ocean on one side and a beautiful hill clad in a carpet of green on the other. Being flanked by such panoramic settings the beach house obviously tries to maximize on the views that it can offer and the large floor-to-ceiling glass windows on the top floor try and offer precisely that. Each room flows into another which gives the feeling of spaciousness as the home tries to maximize on the available area.
Each room in this home seems to be touched by a different cultural influence. From intricate oriental designs to the geometric patterns of Middle Eastern décor and the stark white/gold accented French continental approach – it is a historic fantastic and worldly home indeed.
