In an era where white tends to dominate décors, it's heart-warming to see a home that believes in colour - and isn't afraid to be bold.

The first thing to note however, is the location. Beach Road, Otumoetai - a sought-after waterfront ribbon that links with foreshore walkways and parks, plus gorgeous harbour views to Mauao and Matakana.

Sitting just behind street-front, this home enjoys more privacy, which is an advantage - particularly given its outdoor connections. Stunningly designed. Cavity-wall construction with plaster finish, composite window joinery (some double glazed). With living areas and bedrooms spread over two levels, three main zones slip outdoors. Two balconies upstairs offer grandstand outlooks, and a greater sense of seclusion. Downstairs, a family lounge opens to a patio and garden enclosure with a distinct tropical ambience.

And that's the cue this house takes with its décor. It celebrates that natural finish of timber by showcasing it on composite joinery, skirtings and architraves. Timber adds a point of difference to the vanity in the downstairs bathroom. High-raked ceilings in the family hub are lined with timber sarking, while the kitchen high bar and shelving feature timber as well.

Every room in this house has a different mood, thanks to its colour. The deep, rich tone in the family hub instils a vibrant aura that hints at the kind of restaurant seen in a tropical island. Cooks will love the kitchen. Its galley appeal with its high bar keeps conversation alive, while cooking can be done out of sight. The stainless counters are brilliant. In the dining setting, cushioned window seating is an invitation to snuggle up in the sun with a book, while gazing out to the water. Doors at the side open to a balcony for alfresco dining. Shared by the master bedroom, it's a nice meeting point.

This main bedroom, together with the fireside lounge next to the family hub, both highlight how colour changes a room's mood and its purpose. The lounge is off-white to instil a light-hearted ambience, while hues of the ocean colour the balcony outlook to the harbour. The master bedroom has a different harbour perspective and its mood is soft, soothing and dreamy. Downstairs rooms all showcase individual personality - either through bold colour, or clever use of furnishings. There are three bedrooms here - or two plus an office. Smart design also includes an alcove for a desk in the lounge corner.

Built-in shelving is a strong feature in this home - in both lounges and the office. It's a home of discerning taste, quality and packed with features. A separate laundry. A separate storeroom for the recreation toys, a stand-alone carport, beautiful gardens with raised beds and a greenhouse to potter.

Filled with colour and personality, this consummate home offers an idyllic lifestyle, while being close to the city and business.
