The Top 100 homes in the country achieve Gold Reserve status each year, and proceed to the National Finals.
These are given to entrants who achieve 90% of the available points and judged to be at least 80% above industry standard.
This substantial residence north of Auckland exudes an incredible feeling of opulence and open space.
Smartly arranged on a capacious footprint, the home provides both privacy and opportunities to socialise. Four bedrooms, three bathrooms and open-plan living easily accommodate residents and their guests. Decks allow for open-air R&R in every direction.
It all starts at the grand entrance where a marble walkway flows into the heart of the home. Set under soaring cathedral ceilings, the interior seems to take a deep breath, filling with light and air. The sky-high stud is sure to draw gasps of admiration from guests too.
Thanks to extensive glazing, including strategically positioned skylights, the stylish and sophisticated open-plan living area is light and breezy.
The attention to detail is apparent with negative lighting illuminating both the opulent marble splashback and the island toe-kick in the entertainer’s kitchen.
Bifold doors stack back to create an intimate connection between the cook’s domain and alfresco dining. This home knows how to go with the flow.
