Recently announced at the Registered Master Builders House of the Year National awards, Landmark Homes Gisborne won the New Home $550,000-$700,00 category, with a home that has to be 'scene to be believed'.
As described by MasterBuilders, .."Enjoying sweeping views of the Mahia landscape, this home offers relaxed modern living that’s in tune with the environment. Despite a 269sqm footprint, the house treads lightly. It’s fitted with its own solar power, which allows the home and its two ovens, two fridges and two freezers to be run off the grid.
Vertical cedar cladding lets the building blend in with its natural surrounds. The light-filled interior, meanwhile, speaks volumes. Tongue-and-groove flooring lends the home a pleasing golden glow, flowing from the main entry through to the kitchen and living area. The entertainer’s space is the focal point of everyday life. Its huge stainless steel island bench – a full 5m in length – sits between the living and dining areas, subtly defining the three spaces.
Generous windows and a high raking ceiling let the sunshine in and enhance the feeling of open space. Aluminium cavity sliders create wonderful flow to the wraparound deck, opening up an unobstructed view from inside. Two tiled bathrooms include a stunning freestanding bath that also soaks up the view."
