Standing out from its neighbours in Christchurch's highly sought-after new Oakbridge subdivision, Landmark Homes latest Showhome offers resort-like living with all the contemporary comforts of a modern home.
This architecturally inspired home makes a memorable first impression, its distinctive exterior reminiscent of a bird in flight.
With an emphasis on natural light, high-end fixtures and fittings, and innovative design, the Showhome underscores Landmark's reputation for delivering premium homes tailored to those seeking a distinct and personalised living experience.
"It's certainly very different from the rest of the Landmark plan range" say's Landmark Homes Christchurch & Canterbury franchisee, Coralie Pollard.
Coralie and her husband Stephen are Landmark Homes' longest-serving franchisees, having owned Landmark Homes Christchurch and Canterbury since 2007. "We always aim to build homes that are unique, and this home is a great example of going beyond the ordinary"
In the main living areas, rakes ceilings peaking at 3.4m high combine with over height windows to emphasise the synergy between light and architectural design, while also creating a calming, welcoming ambience.
Spanning a substantial floorplan of 241m2, the Tuahiwi design Showhome was developed to take full advantage of its pentagon-shaped site - wide at the front and narrow toward the back.
Up front, the bedroom wing features a stunning master suite supplemented with an office, family bathroom, two additional bedrooms, and a double garage. For those wanting an extra room, there's an option to adjust the plans by adding a fourth bedroom, by downsizing the laundry and main suite walk-in robe.
With the living spaces at the rear of the home, the smart design has also maximised privacy and natural light, while allowing a seamless flow from one area to another.
Coralie says the Tuahiwi plan has been very well received by visitors to date. "People walk in and say they just feel at home" she says.
The kitchen ticks all the boxes, and then some. Large, light, and very welcoming, every aspect of the design was carefully crafted to make entertaining easy.
The décor is nothing short of contemporary elegance. The fluted overhead cabinetry and island bench front, in shades of charcoal and dark grey look striking contrasted against a white glass splashback and quartz benchtops.
The expansive open-plan design integrates a modern butler's pantry behind the main kitchen area. Although 'pantry' isn't really an apt description - it's practically another room fitted out with loads of preparation space and abundant storage, including space for a double-door fridge.
Large sliders open up to the outside from the kitchen and living areas, creating a seamless flow to the paved outdoor living area.
Adding to the versatility of the space, New Yorker cavity slider doors are positioned on either side of the kitchen. These can be used to close off the space for entertaining. A separate lounge means other family members can have quiet time or watch TV away from the hub of the activity.
Landmark Homes are renowned for creating impressive master suites. And this one is no exception. Combining luxury, comfort, and elegance, the Tuahiwi’s massive master suite is reminiscent of a five-star resort. The walk-in robe has been designed to wow, with no shortage of storage space for both him and her.
Alongside, the fully tiled ensuite offers a haven to retreat to at the end of the day with a bath, separate shower, and attractive curved tondo wall-hung vanity. The suite has been positioned facing north to take full advantage of the sun. Add to that, the private garden outside, this is a space that really does have it all.
Taking centre stage in the main living area is a stylish Ecsea gas fireplace. The cornerstone of the Showhome’s heating solutions, however, are two ducted air handlers, perfectly situated to provide maximum comfort both in the living and sleeping areas.
Beyond the physical heating fixtures, there's an inherent sense of warmth and snugness throughout the home, a testament to its thoughtful design and the choice of materials used.
Landmark Homes are committed to using materials that combine quality with beauty, and functionality. And there’s plenty on show within the Tuahiwi Showhome.
On the exterior, the home showcases a contrasting blend of Ultraclad, painted in Resene’s Flaxpod, and cedar cladding. Each is chosen for its harmonious aesthetic and enduring properties.
Throughout the home, distinctive tapware, with its unique textured finish, lends an added touch of sophistication.
