Able Tasman – a high country character house from Landmark Homes


When it comes to your family home, it is nice to have all the latest lifestyle luxuries, but the basic nurturing qualities of warmth, safety and strength of construction all come top of the list.

This new show home by Landmark Homes at Sovereign Lakes, Christchurch, boasts every modern inclusion. However, it's the traditional timber construction of the Abel Tasman, with its rich cedar sidings and classic window detailing, that makes this house a joy to come home to.

A textured steel tile roof furthers the home's rugged high-country character, while its light weight ensures safety in a seismic event.

The 235m2, three-bedroom Abel Tasman is designed for a long, narrow corner site and is all about family living. One end is home to an expansive open family, dining and kitchen area, while the master bedroom is set at the other end for a sense of separation. The formal living area can also be separated from other family areas with double cavity sliders.

The house is strong on creature comforts, too. A gas fire is a focal point of the living room, and the tiles in the designer kitchen, pantry, master bathroom and main bathroom all have underfloor heating. Warm wool carpet features in other areas. The generously sized master suite has a spa-like appeal with a double vanity and open walk-in shower.


Detailing such as wall finishes, tapware, benchtops, and skirting board profiles are all open to individual preference.
