Showcasing exceptional design and quality craftsmanship, Golden Homes Bay of Plenty’s new Papamoa show home is a striking example of just what can be achieved when building a brand new home with Golden Homes.
‘Contemporary yet traditional’ is how Golden Homes Bay of Plenty sales consultant Steve Blake describes the company’s superbly crafted show home in the popular subdivision of Terrace Views.
“The house is well suited in a suburban area like Terrace Views but it would look equally at home on a farm block overlooking rolling hills and grazing stock with the mountain ranges in the background,” explains Steve.
North facing and with views of the Papamoa hills, the home is located on Te Okuroa Drive, the new access road to Palm Springs, Golden Sands and the future Papamoa East town centre development.
Close to the Eastern Link Expressway, a kilometre from Papamoa College and a short 1.5 kilometres to the expansive white sands of Papamoa beach, the home is well positioned for the busy family looking for a stunning new family home.
Utilising the steel framework traditionally associated with a Golden Homes build, the four bedroom, 258sqm family home is built on a rib raft foundation and clad in a mix of James Hardie linea weatherboard and an aerated concrete panel system which has been plastered and painted.
“Everyone coming through the house is very impressed by the quality of the home and also how big the house feels; it’s really well designed,” says Steve.
“The open plan kitchen, dining and family room as well as separate lounge and the master bedroom all have a 2.7m stud height —which provides that really spacious feel.
The rest of the house is 2.4m.” Incorporating an open scullery, the kitchen design is a key feature of the home, with state of the art Fisher and Paykel appliances that include 8-function double wall ovens, induction cook top and double fridge/freezer.
A large centre island includes a dark stone top with an increasingly popular waterfall end. The ﬂooring features carpet and vinyl planking combination with tiles in the bathrooms.
Steve says the increasing quality, range of colours and texture, coupled with the modern look and warmth underfoot is making vinyl planking a popular choice in new builds.
With the master bedroom positioned at the northwestern end of the house and including a walk in wardrobe and en-suite, the three remaining rooms are conveniently located at the other end of the hallway; the fourth bedroom designated as the guest room and having direct access to the main bathroom. The master bedroom also has its own north facing patio area.
A lovely raking coveredal fresco area comes off the family room and incorporates a tongue and groove look preﬁnished sofﬁt lining as a feature that extends right around the house under the eaves.
Golden Homes has spent many years developing the Gold Standard Building System, with a Goldseal Warranty.
The Company is proud to build with the Zog steel framing technology, offering framing so strong that it’s designed to withstand seismic
activity up to a magnitude 9, providing ease of mind.
“Not only is steel framing quake safe, it is also the healthier option and will provide customers with a home that will withstand the test of time,” says Steve.
With an extensive background in the construction industry, Steve loves the opportunity to work with clients and help them to create their dream home, working closely through the whole process with them.
“We work with a lot of ﬁrst homebuyers too— so it’s really nice helping them design a nice new home that meets their needs, lifestyle and budget.”
