Are you in love with a classic style of home? The Ōmokoroa design from Landmark Homes Bay of Plenty is a distinctive and elegant example of the Hamptons look. It’s a timeless style that exemplifies elegance and comfort.
The now closed Showhome is situated on the Ōmokoroa peninsula that provides peace and quiet away from the hustle and bustle of the city.
On one side the Tauranga harbour, with a clear view of Mt. Maunganui. On the other, is the beautiful Kaimai Ranges. The site was chosen for this breathtaking vista, which provides gorgeous sunrises over the sea and incredible sunsets over the ranges in the evening.
The two-level house incorporates some of the design features typical of Landmark Homes. The long, wide spacious kitchen, living, and dining areas have sloping ceilings, with a high pitch that immediately draws attention and creates a wow factor. The herringbone design of the entry and gallery flooring also creates a warm yet striking effect.
The white colour scheme used throughout the home was specifically chosen to showcase the detailed features of the house and allow each design element to ‘pop’.
Every aspect oozes quality and attention to detail. There’s a luxurious gas fire in the living room and a separate media room off the main living area with feature glass doors that can be shut for privacy.
Feature lighting has been carefully chosen, with a stunning bar pendant light in the kitchen and a beaded chandelier in the dining area.
The gorgeous kitchen has a beautiful picture window over the rear kitchen bench that looks out to the Tauranga harbour. It also has a scullery so you can keep dishes out of sight when entertaining.
The double dish drawer and large fridge and freezer have both been integrated into the kitchen cabinetry for a seamless look. In keeping with the luxurious style of the home, the kitchen bench top is made from stone with a marble effect finish, and the cabinetry uses quality brushed brass fittings to create a timeless appeal.
The outdoor deck is accessed from the main open plan living area via large double sliding doors. The sloping ceiling from the living area continues out to the portico covering the entire area to achieve a seamless indoor/outdoor flow and provide a covered shelter for year-round entertaining. The deck also features an outdoor fireplace that can be used as a pizza oven for al fresco dining.
On the same level are two spacious bedrooms, a large bathroom with a tiled shower, and a separate powder room. This is an ideal private area for guests or can be used as a separate sleeping area for the kids away from the upstairs master suite.
A feature balustrade with a three-pendant light hanging from the ceiling leads to the second-floor master suite featuring a lavish walk-in wardrobe and an ensuite with a freestanding bath, a shower with marble effect, a double bowl vanity, and brushed brass tapware. No expense has been spared with the design of this adult retreat.
As with all Landmark homes, the Ōmokoroa design has been future-proofed to allow for additions, including a provision for a lift to be incorporated.
This house has a real wow factor that will impress and inspire anyone looking to build their dream home.
