New show home fits beach lifestyle
A new show home at the Terrace Views subdivision has the Bay of Plenty’s ZB Homes perfectly placed to take full advantage of the rapidly growing population at the seaside settlement of Papamoa.
ZB Homes has made its new show home an example of what clients could have on the smaller, 400sqm sections typical at Terrace Views.
“We had to provide a different looking show home of a different size to suit this different market at Papamoa,” says ZB Homes managing director Rik Flowerday.
“At Terrace Views, the section sizes are smaller, at an average of 400sqm.
“They are more economical than The Lakes, they are close to the beach, and a lot of people want to live out there. “What we’ve designed is something that will fit on a lot of those sections.”
The 165sqm show home on a 400sqm site has been designed and built to ZB Homes’ standard specifications, with a couple of upgrades including mosaic tiles on the bathroom floor and the kitchen finished in white gum.
“We’re going with a tropical, Balinese style for the way the show home will be dressed and landscaped, which suits the Papamoa area and the beach,” Rik says.
“Our interior design has been done by Yellowfox, and as part of our standard package, all of our clients get to work with Yellowfox as well to choose their colours and finishes.”
The home incorporates three bedrooms, two bathrooms, and open plan kitchen, living, and dining.
It features a gas fireplace, a large kwila deck off the master bedroom and loving room, and a private courtyard on the west side of the house, looking out to the Papamoa Hills.
“We enjoy making our clients happy, and welcoming them into their new home and handing over the keys is the best part of the job, and why we are in the business.”
Whether designing and building a new home on a client’s own section, or providing one of its varied house and land packages, or building a property for investment, ZB Homes provides experienced and knowledgeable support.
“We can suggest options and guide you through any part of the process, and we can deliver a flexible and premium solution to meet your individual needs.”
Cladding is brick and long run with some feature linear weatherboard, and on the interior ZB Homes has used a range of different colours and different finishes to demonstrate its possible to have something different without blowing the budget.
Eldon Frost from EB Contracting will complete the tropical themed landscaping with palms and ferns before the show home’s opening on August 26.
The new show home sits on one of 10 sites bought by ZB Homes in stages one and two of Terrace Views, and the company now only has two left to sell, with house and land packages starting from $640,000.
Rik says all ZB Homes houses are designed to suit their section, the client’s specific brief, and the budget.
“We have our clients working with an architectural designer right from the start, so homes are designed to suit each client’s own individual needs, wants, and budget.
“Then we work with Yellowfox to help our clients put some wow factor into their new home, even if they’re on a tight budget.”
ZB Homes Bay of Plenty opened for business in 2014 and has since built more than 100 homes.
Many of these have been for referred or repeat customers, who come back to work with ZB Homes because the company can be trusted and depended on for quality, flexibility, and progress.
“We know the communication with our clients is paramount to accomplishing success,” Rik says.
