Showhome to meet de­mand

Matamata Chronicle - - What’s On -

A surge in Mata­mata house sales has prompted a lo­cal busi­ness to open up a new showhome.

Spurred by the Auck­land hous­ing cri­sis, and de­mand from the re­gion, Gen­er­a­tion Homes opened a four bed­room showhome in the Ever­green Es­tate sub­di­vi­sion in Mata­mata on June 11.

The com­pany’s WaipaCoro­man­del di­rec­tor Trevor Roberts said Auck­land’s high prices were mo­ti­vat­ing buy­ers to cash up and re­lo­cate to more rea­son­ably priced re­gional cen­tres to achieve their de­sired build.

‘‘We’ve had the exclusive rights to 24 sec­tions within the Ever­green Es­tate since Novem­ber but all house and land pack­ages have been sold or are cur­rently un­der con­tract,’’ he said.

While there are no Gen­er­a­tion Homes’ house and land pack­ages left in the Ever­green Es­tate, Roberts said fu­ture de­vel­op­ments in Mata­mata, Cam­bridge and the coastal town of Whi­tianga would pro­vide ex­cit­ing op­por­tu­ni­ties for home buy­ers.

‘‘Buyer in­ter­est is def­i­nitely grow­ing in the cen­tral North Is­land’s ru­ral town­ships and we en­cour­age peo­ple to view our new showhome.’’

The new showhome is val­ued at $580,000 and show­cases the Kaimai plan.

It fea­tures a large open plan liv­ing, kitchen and din­ing area with doors open­ing onto a cen­tral court­yard.

The house has a sep­a­rate for­mal lounge, mas­ter bed­room with en­suite, walk-in wardrobe, and an in­ter­nal dou­ble garage.

Other up­grades in­clude a large tiled shower in the en­suite and walk-in pantry in the kitchen.

‘‘This showhome re­flects the lat­est in res­i­den­tial home build­ing trends from func­tional out­door liv­ing ar­eas to stylish and cus­tomised in­te­ri­ors.’’

‘‘We’re ex­pe­ri­enc­ing in­creased de­mand for larger homes and there has been a big push for func­tional out­door liv­ing spa­ces with larger decks, cov­ered al­fresco ar­eas and ter­races,’’ Roberts said.

The Gen­er­a­tion Homes WaipaCoro­manel oper­a­tion also works di­rect with land own­ers to find the right ar­chi­tec­turally de­signed house plan for a se­lected site.

‘‘It’s re­ally im­por­tant for land own­ers to seek pro­fes­sional ad­vice be­fore se­lect­ing or cus­tomis­ing a house plan.’’

Gen­er­a­tion Homes was es­tab­lished in Tau­ranga in 1997.

The showhome, at 2 O’Sul­li­van Dr, was open ev­ery Mon­day, Thurs­day and Sun­day 12-3pm.
