The house is nestled into the Banks Peninsula, hidden among the hills, with it’s own little private beach and cove to enjoy.

The cottage has been built using local materials, like the rock that was quarried near its site. There is also on-site water harvesting and wastewater treatment.

In the bathroom, a skylight above the bath makes sure plenty of natural light fills the space.
