Registered Master Builders House of the Year 2016 - Regional Silver 

Manawatu/Wanganui/East Coast New Home $1 million - $2 million

Positioned on a clifftop, with sensational sea and mountain views, this Westmere winner radiates relaxed vibes. Cladding is cool and contemporary Rockote Integra panel, which exists in harmony with the coastal setting. Guests are greeted by a Rosewood door and frame with copper panel flax inlay. The open-plan living space is exceptionally light, bright and spacious, thanks to its raised stud and clerestories in every direction. The home’s forms collude to create a wonderful sheltered alfresco deck with Louvretec roof. Exceptional indoor-outdoor flow makes entertaining a breeze. Two further living spaces and three bedrooms provide great options. Italian tiles adorn the two bathrooms, including the ensuite. Despite its sizable 416sqm footprint, the home treads lightly on the environment. Sustainable measures include thermoplastic roofing; polished concrete floors; ground-sourced heat pump; and double-glazed, low-E, thermally broken joinery. A wood fire adds extra warmth and laidback ambience inside – a lovely place to gather for quality time and relaxation.
