Our Homes


Whakarongo, Manawatu

In some homes, there’s so much to see that exploration is in order. This tasteful house clad in Abodo Vulcan timber and insulated Xtherm plaster is one of them. The 328sqm architecturally designed layout is a feature in itself — it’s the antithesis of a box and provides recesses, nooks and a distinct sense of style.

The four-bedroom home has also been designed to capture sun and mitigate the effects of the Manawatū wind. Situated on a lifestyle block outside Palmerston North, the house has generous living areas that invite in the green outlook, and a covered L-shaped outdoor entertaining space.

Alfresco meals are on the menu, no matter the weather. It’s perfect for gatherings, too. The stylish kitchen, with clean lines and an industrial edge, has a walk-in pantry with plenty of storage and extra work space. Fanning out from this hub of the home are a family room with a fireplace, and a dining room that leads to a living room. There’s no shortage of places to congregate or, conversely, to enjoy private time.
Wherever you look, you’ll see bold, attractive decor and furnishings. Bedrooms are spread throughout the house; the elegant main suite has an ensuite and dressing room.

Three-car garaging is a must on such a property.
