A Tauranga home has been recognised in the Registered Master Builders House of the Year awards.
The new build, by Belco Homes, won the CARTERS New Home $1 million to $2 million Award, as well as the Outdoor Living Award.
The three bedroom, two bathroom home's design was commended by the judges.
“Innovation has been the key to creating this remarkable private urban oasis, which is situated on such a tight site that presented unique challenges and opportunities,” they say.
“Every square metre has been cleverly utilized with every consideration to the surrounding views without compromising privacy. A focus on good materials and products, has been well complimented by the attention to detail and high standards this builder has achieved.”
They say the dual outdoor living spaces makes this house unique, with one off the upstairs formal and main living area and one off the ground floor children's living area.
“The upper alfresco with its louvre sliding shutters provides many options regardless of the weather conditions. The space is well positioned to take in the panoramic views while overlooking the enclosed and very private pool below. The lower area is private and sheltered with direct access into the pool. Well-appointed lifestyle options great for entertaining.”
The Supreme Award for the Registered Master Builders 2017 House of the Year went to John Creighton Builder Limited for a home in Mt Pleasant, Christchurch, while the Supreme Award for the Registered Master Builders 2017 Renovation of the Year went to Planit Construction for a home in Mt Victoria, Wellington.
