The Milldale home is based on the company’s Newmarket villa plan and features a 32sqm verandah wrapping around the house.

Heritage Homes is building a unique spec home in Milldale. Based on the company’s Newmarket villa plan, the home boasts a 32sqm verandah wrapping around the house.
Situated on a 511sqm corner site with views to bush reserves, the beautifully designed 175sqm home, offers three bedrooms including a master bedroom with walk in wardrobe and ensuite, flowing open plan kitchen, living and dining, butler’s pantry, separate laundry, large garage and plenty of storage.
A lovely heritage themed green and white garden is also planned. Heritage Homes general manager Hayden Jones says that the home amply demonstrates the company’s focus on traditional craftsmanship and detail. It will be completed by mid 2020 and is currently available for purchase.
Heritage Homes specialises in recreating buildings from the Pioneer cottage range, to the 1860 villa and on to the ornate 1910 villa, through to the classic retro bungalows of the 1920s, 30s and 40s.
This means people can enjoy a classic style home built using the most sophisticated technical and modern components that today’s homes demand. Dependent on design homes include classic features such as high 2.7m ceilings, intricate scroll design skirting boards and architraves around the windows and doors, roofed verandas and posts.
The company was originally founded by the late Master Craftsman builder Keith Mitchell who saw mass producing homes was resulting in the loss of creating a masterpiece for the client built with handcrafted precision and skill.
Keith passed this passion and vision to his son John Mitchell, a fourth generation Master Crafts-man builder who runs Heritage Homes today.
There are now licensees operating throughout New Zealand in Auckland, the Far North, Whangarei, Kaipara, Wellington and Canterbury.Heritage Homes offers a range of plans as well as full design and build options.
Hayden says that the plans typically function as inspiration as every home is customised to suit the client’s requirements and the site. Heritage Homes uses only first grade pine timber framing, trusses and rafters, all treated to the highest level.

Homes are mostly clad with pine timber weatherboards, which come supplied treated and pre primed. Hayden says that pine timber is environmentally friendly as it has low production energy requirements and is a net carbon absorber.
“Pine timber is also a renewable resource and world leading New Zealand forest management ensures continuous and sustainable production.“Pine timber is plentiful in supply, strong and lightweight, safe and healthy, flexible to use.”
He says that Heritage Homes makes every effort to provide clients with an environmentally friendly home and wherever possible uses materials that have been manufactured from recycled, renewable and sustainable products
. Insulation and double glazing ensure each home is snug and warm. Hayden says Heritage Homes has strong partners who together deliver great results including Bradford, Dominator, Mico, Kitchen Things, Mastercraft Kitchens, Placemakers, Metalcraft and Fairview.
Hayden says that Heritage Homes is proud to be involved in Milldale, an exemplary development, which he says “takes things to the next level”. He says that it is also now easier for people to get one of these homes as Heritage Homes has partnered with Squirrel to offer finance for house and land packages for as little as 5% deposit.
