Ruapehu show home for Landmark Homes in Taupo has Linea Scyon weatherboard exterior


Designing a home for a corner site can be a challenge, but it also provides an opportunity to maximise the double street frontage for a more dramatic exposure.

Landmark Homes' Ruapehu plan is the perfect fit for this corner site in Taupo. Not only does it allow the garage to be tucked around the side of the house, but it also makes it easy to maximise the sun and mountain views.

The four-bedroom 263.6m2 family home – a new show home and office for Landmark Homes – was built by local franchisee Landmark Taupo, Rotorua, Whakatane.

With its multi-gabled roofline and soaring entry porch the house has a strong presence. But it's not only the aesthetics that appeal – the low maintenance is also a key feature. The exterior is clad in James Hardie Scyon Linea weatherboards and the roofing is Metro shingles.

The front door leads to an extra-large open-plan kitchen and family living area, with a split level helping to define each space. A double-sided gas fireplace creates an inviting centrepiece and keeps the interior cosy.


Special features of the all-white, galley-style kitchen include quartz benchtops, a textural tiled splashback and large scullery.

Indoor-outdoor living is another feature of the home, with large sliders opening to a covered porch that can be enjoyed all year round.

Other rooms on the ground floor include a formal living room, two bedrooms and a workshop area in the garage. On the upper level there is a family room, master suite and fourth bedroom.

Landmark Homes also designs and builds custom homes to suit every client and every location, be it a country lifestyle block or an infill site in the city.
