Landmark Homes Clevedon Showhome combines large light-filled living spaces with a modern country design to create a welcoming and comfortable family home that reflects the region’s rural-urban aspect.
Located just minutes from the popular Clevedon Village Farmers Market, Landmark Homes Clevedon Showhome is all about relaxed rural living that doesn’t sacrifice on convenience.
With a 275m2 pavilion design that creates two wings and a central outdoor living space, the Showhome offers inspiration to those looking to enjoy the benefits of a larger property with fantastic indoor-outdoor flow, away from the busyness of the city, but still conveniently close to everything it has to offer.
As you step inside the entranceway, you’re given a taste of the home’s stylish design with a bold and eye-catching cowhide leather-look feature wall offset with contemporary pendant lighting.
“It creates a fantastic point of interest as you enter the home and instantly sets the scene for the home’s modern country aesthetic,” says Landmark Homes Auckland – South-East franchise owner Michael Walters. “It’s a great example of how a simple but carefully considered design element can transform an ordinary space and infuse it with a ‘wow’ factor.”
The elegant modern country aesthetic continues throughout the home with features such as black barn-style doors, exposed timber ceiling trusses, and Hardie Grove ceilings.
A particularly striking feature of the home is the handsome Craftstone schist column which wraps around the fireplace to create a stunning central feature extending from the exterior through to the interior living space.
The main living area is all about light and space with an open plan design accentuated with two skylights (which also feature in two of the three bathrooms), full height windows, and high raking ceilings. “The pavilion window extends all the way to the roofline which really opens up the space and combines with the exposed trusses to create a beautiful feature within the room,” says Michael.
Using a soft palette of grey, white, and timber tones accentuates the sense of openness while also allowing features such as the black barn doors and kitchen cabinetry, schist fireplace, and feature walls to have an impact.
The four-bedroom floorplan has been designed with family flexibility in mind and includes a master suite contained within its own wing, as well as a guest suite with a double bedroom leading out to a patio area, plus a private ensuite.
In the kitchen a solid laminated American oak timber island benchtop creates a beautiful focal point and is sure to become the heart of the home where kids and parents can catch up over breakfast, or the chef can entertain guests while keeping an eye on the oven. A generously large scullery helps keep the kitchen space clear of clutter and provides that all-important extra storage that modern families need.
Underfoot, Forté engineered wood floors are not only good-looking but hardwearing too, offering a good example of the high standard of materials used throughout.
“We want the home to not only look good and feel amazing to live in, but we also want it to meet the needs of busy families for years to come with hardwearing, beautiful materials,” says Michael.
Key to the Showhome’s brief was a design that incorporated the indoor-outdoor flow that Kiwis love in their homes – space for outdoor entertaining, BBQs with the family, room for the kids to play and still be seen, and an easy flow between spaces that creates a sense of connection and cohesion.
A clever design element that links the media room and living space is an external corner featuring a barn door on each side that, when opened fully, allow the two rooms to merge. The same has been done with an adjacent external window which opens out to an internal deck between the two pavilions. “When you open up both spaces, the result means the outdoor living space blends seamlessly with the indoors, creating a fantastic living and entertaining space.”
Because the outdoor living space also features a louvred roof with LED lighting, the home’s indoor-outdoor flow can be enjoyed across all seasons.
It’s a great example of how Landmark’s designers have used innovative concepts to maximise liveability and create multi-purpose living areas catering to families at every age and stage.
