A classic for good reason

A timeless charm and relaxed modern layout are just two reasons Landmark's latest showhome is the fourth version of this popular villa-style home

As you arrive at the Townsend Fields subdivision in Rangiora, the new Landmark Homes Christchurch showhome sits proudly at the intersection of Goldie Drive and Townsend Road.

An echo of one of Landmark’s most popular designs

Quintessentially Landmark, this villa-style design – based on the homebuilder’s Ready to Build plan Karapiro plan – combines dark Linea cladding, a dark grey roof, and titania joinery and window frames for a classic yet striking look.

Unsurprisingly, the Karapiro is a favourite with homebuyers and has been used for our showhomes a few times now – both in Hamilton and New Plymouth, says Coralie Pollard, co-franchisee of Landmark Homes Christchurch.

“And the fourth time’s a charm! Pollard says.

The only difference from the original plan is that the home had to be shrunken from 255m² to 240.5m² to suit the slightly smaller subdivision section.”

“This showhome has one particular homeowner in mind – someone who loves a classic Landmark villa.”

The Karapiro design works well for long, narrow sections while the house itself is both an entertainer’s dream and a functional family home with lots of storage.

Onsite landscaping was kept understated and deliberately minimalist.

“For this build, we were all about the house!” she says. “And what a house it is!”

Ideal for entertaining and an on-the-go family lifestyle

The showhome offers three bedrooms, a study and 2.5 bathrooms, plus a second separate lounge for extra peace and quiet. A separate laundry room leads to the roomy double garage.

As you walk through the gracious covered entryway, you’ll walk straight ahead into the central living area. Here, an open-plan dining room and lounge flank the kitchen and scullery, with coloured flooring throughout.

The designer kitchen is one of the big draws of the home, boasting a substantial 3.5-metre island and profiled cabinetry for timeless appeal.

Slate matt and white satin cabinets with pewter handles marry beautifully with rumbled splashback tiles and a statement light feature over the island.

The overall feel of this modest size, big-impact home is light and welcoming

Sun streams through bi-fold and French doors that open onto the showhome's two outdoor living areas, where an overhung roof and pergola provide shelter.

With so many spaces opening directly to the outdoors this showhome is an open home in more than one way.
