Lifestyle first from New Home Trends volume 2509
It can be hard to determine priorities when planning your new home. But good architecture, high-quality construction and an energy-efficient design are right up there.
The new Harmony Homes Lincoln show home in The Concourse, Henderson brings together all these elements, and more. Director Grant Russell says the three-bedroom home has numerous features commonly seen only in larger homes.
"Good design maximises the space to provide a spacious, open-plan interior. The living area includes a cantilevered hearth and gas fireplace and the sleek kitchen has a separate scullery. The design also provides an easy flow to the outdoors."
But it is not just the things you can see that create the main point of difference for the house. Russell says the show home was the first house in New Zealand to receive the Electricity Commission Certificate for Energy-Efficient Lighting.
The house has been entered into this year's Master Builders House of the Year Award, in the Show Home category. Harmony Homes has been a member of the Registered Master Builders' Association since 1974 and has already accumulated more than 30 awards in the same competition.
Russell says clients appreciate the fact that Harmony Homes is not a franchise, but a secure, long-standing, family-owned business specialising in design-and-build contracts.
"The company was founded on genuine values, including honesty, integrity and respect. Those values are just as important today as they were when we started," he says.
Russell says Harmony Homes works from a range of standard house plans, or clients can opt for a design-and-build home at no extra cost.
