81 Mokoia Rd, Ngongotahā
Built in 1970, this cedar u-shaped lakeside family home is in practically mint condition with little having changed since it was constructed in the heady, hippy days. Loads of orange and brown features in the décor, and some of the inbuilt furniture - popular at the time - must be seen to be believed!
It's definitely a contender for a modern makeover, yet with its many original design features intact, retro-loving purists might very reasonably, choose to leave it as it is - and furnish it accordingly. Whatever you decide to do with the house itself, the setting is simply sublime with easy lake-access in a friendly neighbourhood.
