This Chesil Park project, built by Advantage Construction, was made for the enjoyment of future generations

The high life


There are three crucial ingredients for a quality home – site, design and construction. While a spectacular site is a good start, it's the architect's skill that integrates a design with the terrain, and the builder who ensures a structure's integrity.

This home, a Chesil Park development, shows the results that can be achieved when all three elements come together. With sweeping vineyard and sea vistas, framed by large windows, and wide, spacious patio areas providing seamless connections to the exterior, the home displays the best aspects of the Hawke's Bay.

The developers enlisted local firm, KS Architecture, to ensure the home encapsulated the Hawke's Bay lifestyle. To make sure it would be a lasting testament that future generations would enjoy, award-winning master builder, Advantage Construction, was engaged.

"Our aim was to build a home of distinction, with perfect flow from the grand entranceway, with its exposed cedar trusses, through to the large formal living areas and wide decks and patios," says Nick Roper, director of Advantage Construction.

In total, the home is 422m2, with 227m2 of terrace area. Inside, a modern European-style kitchen, with black granite countertops, complements the warm hues of the Tasmanian oak flooring.


To take advantage of current and future technology, the home was smart-wired. A Lutron system controls all electronics, security and lighting.
