The Driver House. Stylish, unique architecture, fantastic views from every window. 2 queen bedrooms( max 4 ppl) TWO COUPLES. Spacious. One BR with ensuite, one with upstairs bathroom. Designed,1959 by Rigby-Mullan, famous for mid century design and a A hyperbolic paraboloid on the top of the house. A doubly-curved surface that resembles the shape of a saddle. This design is one of NZs first steel framed houses. This is a unique experience for the lover of uniquely styled mid century.

De ruimte
The house is divided to two areas and the upstairs and downstairs guests both have large bedrooms with en suites or their own bathrooms. The downstairs have access to kitchenette with coffee and tea/coffee making facilities. The house upstairs has plenty of room and a couple of lounges. The bedrooms both have TVs and space to spread out. This home was built in 1960 for a local family ( the Drivers, a potter and a professional who wanted something unique) They wanted to take advantage of the views from this unique spot. They had an experimental outlook and commissioned architects Rigby and Mullen's to design a house (based loosely on the Blumenthal House). This is among the very rare houses built in the ‘International Modernist” style in New Zealand. It is one of very few New Zealand houses of any period to be surviving today almost unblemished.

Guests say "This House goes beyond just accommodation it’s an experience. You will be staying in a mid century marvel with modern day convenience and comfort. A kind, mindful host who wants only for you to enjoy the space, and in return be a 24hr custodian of one of NZ’s best examples of this architectural style."

Waar je zult verblijven

Thames, Waikato, Nieuw-Zeeland

Thames- Parawai is on the southern part of the present-day town of Thames. It has amazing views and looks south towards Te Aroha and all the way north up the Firth of Thames. The views are breathtaking! Its 5 minutes drive to the main town and Grahamstown (the heritage part of town). On our backdoor just down Brunton Cres is the world renown John William Hall Arboretum (native and exotic forest and bush walk) - J W Hall was a chemist on the Thames Goldfield from late 1867. The bush is full of Kauri and other natives with a few tropical. Brunton Cres is a quiet and peaceful part of Thames 20 minutes walk from the center and 15 minutes walk from the Thames Wharf Cafe. Thames is 35 minutes from Tairua or Pauanui, 40 minutes from TeAroha. A short drive to beautiful beaches, fishing spots , hot pools and beautiful bush walks. It is only 1 hour and 20 minutes from Auckland central. There is something for anyone wanting a relaxing escape.
