The new single-level showhome from Landmark Homes Northland epitomises stylish modern country living at its best. The showhome is built from the Richmond Ready to Build house plan, one of the most popular designs for Landmark Homes Northland.
Contemporary country luxury in native bush
Entering the property through a set of elegant gates along a pebbled driveway that curves around the side of the house to the front door, you immediately feel like you’re driving up to your own private country estate.
Built on a large, flat 4300-metre section with a front row location, this stunning showhome is sited well back from the road to provide privacy from neighbours. The vista of surrounding farmland and native bush, abundant with native birds and exotic species, adds to the rural country feel of the location and there’s plenty of space to add a pool.
American country-style interior design…
As you enter the home, a mood of warmth and modern country elegance is set by the massive entrance, which features raked high ceilings typical of Landmark Homes, a pendant chandelier, and floor lighting to showcase the stunning American oak floor. The skylights down the hallway add a wonderful light, airiness to the home.
Straight ahead you gain a clear view down the wide hallway to the gorgeous portico entertaining area located off the main living areas on the road side.
The enormous master bedroom with en suite, walk-in wardrobe, and separate study is immediately to your right off the entrance hall. This location, well away from the other bedrooms and guest suite, ensures complete privacy.
In keeping with the striking elegance of the interior décor Landmark Homes are known for, the master en suite features a gunmetal freestanding bath and tapware, with a controller that allows you to automatically set the temperature and level of the bath water for optimum indulgence.
Further down the hallway is the open-plan kitchen, dining, and family room area.
Entertainers Delight In Karanui
The modern country kitchen has an adjoining scullery/pantry and separate storage space. LED strip lighting and custom-built Sherwood cabinets with quality matte black Methven fittings add a wow factor against the crisp white walls. The kitchen is truly an entertainer’s delight, with lots of storage for kitchen appliances and a place to stack dishes out of sight of your guests.
The open-plan family and dining area adjoining the kitchen has huge windows to let the light in, and ranch sliders leading out to the portico to create a seamless indoor/outdoor flow. The dining room also features beautiful whitewashed American oak floors.
If you love year-round ‘al fresco’ dining, you will spend plenty of time on the portico. It features rich timber kwila flooring and exposed rafters painted white to accentuate the soaring 4-metre central beams. It has plenty of space for a BBQ, a pizza oven, or even a fully-fledged outdoor kitchen.
Separate from the kitchen/dining/living area is a peaceful nook decorated in moody dark blue, with a cosy fireplace and feature brick wall surrounds. If you’ve ever dreamed of having your own ‘whiskey room’ retreat where you can snuggle into a luxurious leather armchair with a good book and glass of wine, this is the space for you.
Located down a large hallway to the left of the entrance hall are two additional large bedrooms with a separate bathroom and laundry, plus a spacious guest suite with walk-in wardrobe, shower, and vanity.
This stunning Landmark Homes showhome is situated on Three Mile Bush Road, in the exclusive Karanui lifestyle subdivision 10 minutes out of Whangarei. It is sure to please anyone looking for their ultimate country home. You can see more images and the floor plan of this stunning show home here.
