Fancy seeing what your dream home might look like? Behold Landmark Homes Bay of Plenty’s new build.
WORDS DANIEL DUNKLEY / PHOTOS AMANDA AITKEN
In the heart of Tauranga, in a well-established street, a modern masterpiece stands out from its surroundings. On Edgecumbe Road, moments from the CBD, the sleek, contemporary creation stands two storeys high. Sunlight streams in from almost every angle.
The latest Landmark Homes Bay of Plenty show home is quintessentially Kiwi but unquestionably current. It puts on display the top local craftsmanship, boutique design and luxury features that are available through Landmark’s design-and-build service, which allows buyers to tailor their new home to their own requirements.
Providing panoramic views from its floor-to-ceiling windows, the beautiful three-bedroom abode would also be right at home tucked into the hills of the Coromandel, or amid acres of Waikato farmland. Its raked ceilings and airy rooms give the impression of endless space, yet retain a cosy, homely feel.
As well as the obvious architectural assets, expert finer details combine to create something truly special. Black weatherboards offer a touch of tradition, while the wide mahogany deck is the perfect place for entertaining. High-quality fixtures are found throughout the house, such as the living area’s central fireplace, the kitchen’s solid-stone surfaces and the ensuite’s luxurious bath.
For Landmark Homes Bay of Plenty co-owner Carly Stewart, the functionality of this dwelling is every bit as impressive as its design. Completed in February, the new property has a host of hidden extras. “It’s got everything,” she says. “There’s storage space throughout, a double garage, an elevator and a walk-in wardrobe – and I can’t think of anyone who wouldn’t want one of those!”
