Top builds in South Auck­land an­nounced

Franklin County News - - PROPERTY FEATURE -

‘‘The Auck­land Reg­is­tered Master Builders House of the Year com­pe­ti­tion has awarded eight homes in the south.

South Auck­land is recog­nised for hav­ing some of the city’s most ‘‘out­stand­ing’’ homes.

The Auck­land Reg­is­tered Master Builders 2017 House of the Year com­pe­ti­tion has awarded eight homes in the south.

There were 32 gold award win­ners from the Auck­land re­gion an­nounced this month which will now be judged against gold award win­ners from around the coun­try to find the na­tional fi­nal­ists.

The supreme award for house of the year went to Pitch Con­struc­tion Lim­ited for a home in Wai­heke. The supreme award for ren­o­va­tion of the year went to Broswick Builders Lim­ited for a home in Grey Lynn.

Judges called the win­ning Wai­heke house a ’’work of art’’.

‘‘With out­stand­ing crafts­man­ship and ex­cep­tional fin­ish­ing, this cliff top home, built on a very dif­fi­cult and nar­row site, is a place to re­lax and en­joy,’’ judges said.

‘‘The seam­less con­nec­tion be­tween in­door and out­door liv­ing morph to­gether, pre­sented with a va­ri­ety of ma­te­ri­als and colour. This pro­vides a su­perb back­drop to the fin­ish­ing touches by a very dis­cern­ing owner.’’

Judges said the win­ning ren­o­va­tion was a tra­di­tional Grey Lynn cot­tage lo­cated close to the street, and gives lit­tle away to what’s hap­pened be­hind the walls.

‘‘Both old and knew blend in an in­ter­est­ing way mak­ing the home full of sur­prises,’’ they said. ‘‘Ex­quis­ite de­tail­ing both in­side and out, a mix of qual­ity ma­te­ri­als, along with ex­pos­ing some of the struc­ture in­ter­nally, clearly shows ev­ery­thing has been thought through and ex­e­cuted per­fectly.

’’A new master suite, a large kitchen, liv­ing, and din­ing area make this a very com­fort­able home. A joy to inspect.’’ South Auck­land win­ners: Carters New Home $1 mil­lion to $2mil­lion
