Designing a house that responds directly to its environment and the needs of potential owners must be hard enough but to then make every corner, floorboard, and kitchen appliance look and feel like an integral part of one harmonious home must be a tricky ask.

However, this is just what successful house designers and builders GJ Gardner Homes West Coast did with its new South Beach showhome a modified version of the Pacific Express design.

Generous open-plan living and green-tinted windows and sliders that open the interiors up to the outdoors make this home the perfect choice for a picturesque coastal setting. As does its rugged material palette, says director of the GJ Gardner Homes franchise, Adam Colville.

"This mono-pitch home, built for its location, boasts a character exterior in Linea weatherboard, Granosite plaster, and schist columns in Designa schist Grey Alps.

"The Longrun 5-rib roofing is in Ebony and the joinery is Ebony, too, while the welcoming front door is by Cedar Aluminium. Of course, with GJ's, there are always options. For instance, other roof choices include concrete or metal tile, and the facades can also be plaster or brick."

If the showhome's exterior combines a great street presence with low-maintenance longevity, the interiors are equally well considered. The home's 191m² floor area incorporates three bedrooms and a study, with the master bedroom having a walk-in wardrobe and ensuite. There is also internal access from the double garage everything is about an easy family lifestyle.

"The living area and bedroom floors are in a plush Norman Ellison Tongariro carpet, with the kitchen floored in Expona Camero Driftwood and the ensuite in durable Novara Ivory tile as with the exterior, these are just a few options offered. It's about tweaking any one of our one hundred-plus plans to meet your own location, aesthetic tastes and family needs.

"In addition, with GJ's, many perceived extras are included as standard," says Colville.

This showhome's light, airy kitchen has the convenience of soft-close drawers, the latest Fisher & Paykel appliances and a Mineralstone benchtop with a Diamond Gloss finish.

Part of the national group's success is due to its broad industry connections meaning great value for top quality products all contribute to the finish of a GJ Gardner home.

"And high-quality doesn't mean waiting for years to move in either. Usually, we are able to complete a build in 12 to 14 weeks, depending on the size, style and section, once the permit has been issued. Thoroughness and keeping promises are just two reasons for our popularity."
