One Roof's guide to what's on the market in Tauranga and Rotorua this week.
Only 3 years old and built with only the best quality materials, this palatial north-west-facing home, designed by architect Mark Bishop sits proud on a 680sq m section in one of the Bay's most prestigious streets.
With three bedrooms and three bathrooms there's ample room for a family and, of course, the beach, the Mount itself, and town with its shops and cafes are just a stone's throw away.
The interior living, dining and kitchen space is open-plan and the modern kitchen is complemented by a scullery and laundry.
A private terrace with louvre roof and side blinds provides an ideal place for entertaining.

The living is open-plan and the kitchen and bathroom are both cool and contemporary with quality fittings.
This is a property that would be ideal for retirees or could perhaps be that long-desired first home, with nothing needing to be changed or updated. Just move in and enjoy the benefits of living in this friendly, convenient neighbourhood.

115 Ngongotaha Rd, Rotorua
First and even second-home buyers are finding it a bit tough going in Rotorua right now so this is an opportunity that you simply cannot afford to miss.
It's a charming little weatherboard cottage on a generous 1523sq m section in one of the city's most increasingly popular suburbs – known for its friendly, community-minded residents.
The main house has two bedrooms with a pleasant interior, which offers potential for further improvements.
The flat, grassy section is nicely landscaped and again, your creative vision could make it even better still. Plus, there's also a one-bed sleep-out, adding extra space.
