Mature oak trees create a magical setting for this new Tauranga show home by Landmark Homes

Gracious living

Even with a compact footprint, a new home can still deliver everything a family needs for a relaxed, enviable lifestyle.

The new Kerehi show home in Tauranga, built by the Bay of Plenty franchisee for nationwide company Landmark Homes, is a perfect example. The two-storey home doesn't take up too much of the site, but it incorporates a great array of special features that justify the tag "small big home".

Anna Zandstra of Landmark Homes Bay of Plenty says the house is positioned so the living spaces have a northerly aspect, with all-day sun in the winter.

"We added bifolding doors off both the formal living area and the dining room to provide an easy indoor-outdoor flow," says Zandstra. "The interior is also seamless, but the staircase creates a natural division between the living areas."

Space is maximised on the upper level, which has two generously sized bedrooms, a large bathroom and an extra-special loft space above the garage. This could be a hobby room, media room or office.

Other key features include a 2.55m ceiling height on the ground floor, a designer galley-style kitchen with a scullery and a stable door that opens to a deck.

For peace of mind, the exterior is clad in highly durable Linea weatherboards.

The show home can be viewed at 62A Grace Rd, Tauranga, phone (07) 577 9986. Website:www.landmarkhomes.co.nz
