Long, light-filled and cleverly laid out, this classic-meets-modern home by Fowler Homes Manawatu won Silver at the Master Builders House of the Year Awards for a new home valued between $550,000 and $700,000.

Perhaps the strongest indicator of the merit of a national design and building company is the favourable judgement of its work by its peers – and a major award from the Master Builders Association is essentially just that. This Silver Award House of the Year in category by experts Fowler Homes is an excellent case in point.

Designed to maximise its rural outlook, this home is located in the rolling hills of Hiwinui, Palmerston North, says Shane Walker, director of Fowler Homes Manawatu.

”Lifestyle, easy functionality and aesthetics go hand in hand in the design – delivering a superb environment for a growing family,” he says. 


“The home has a welcoming feel right from entry, with feature wallpaper and designer tiles greeting you just inside the front door.”

Plush, high-quality carpet runs through the expansive open-plan living area while its high-quality floor-to-ceiling bifold doors and many windows take in the stunning pastoral views.

This award-winning home’s spacious living zone connects to a study nook and formal lounge that can both be closed off – a great lifestyle benefit when teens and parents share the same space. The house is by Fowler Homes Manawatu.

The large living area also has subtle divisions which add to its functionality. In addition, both the separate formal lounge and the study can be opened or closed off from the main living zone.

“The sleek designer kitchen is served by a spacious walk-in scullery and connects directly to both the indoor living spaces and a large, sheltered alfresco entertainment area.”

The home’s central passage leads variously to a triple garage, laundry, fully tiled main bathroom and four bedrooms. A ducted heating system doubles as a cooling device in summer.
