​​​​​​​This new H-shaped Nelson showhome by GJ Gardner features contemporary monochrome styling with a pop of colour.

A leading New Zealand home builder offers acomprehensive range of plans to suit all tastes and lifestyles, including meeting the top end of the design and build market. The GJ Gardner showhome featured here is in stunning Richmond, Nelson and is full of design inspiration.

GJ Gardner was really excited to build this home to showcase a more contemporary style compared to past traditional showhomes, says Graham Vercoe, franchise owner for Nelson.

The architectural new build has an H-shaped footprint. The dining, kitchen, living and master bedroom with ensuite are on one side of the home. On the other side are two bedrooms, a main bathroom, study and double garage. The wings are connected via an elegant glass hallway, which also contains the main entrance.

​​​​​​​The expansive living, dining and kitchen zones make this GJ Gardner showhome ideal for parties and entertaining. With a front façade that is essentially all glass, the home is light-filled and welcoming all year long.

“The open-plan family lounge is ideally positioned to capture the all-day Nelson sun,” Vercoe says. “The shared spaces have also been carefully designed to collect and store thermal energy – perfect for combating those crisp winter mornings and evenings.”

A glass door can also separate the main living area from the rest of the home – so there is enough space and privacy for all.

In the designer kitchen, top of the range fixtures and fittings have been installed and a spacious scullery with ample storage is included in the floor plan. Rich wood-plank floors in the kitchen and dining areas run alongside large glass windows and sliding doors to join the beautiful yet practical living room tiles.

“We wanted the layout to be perfect for socialising and entertaining, whether it be dinner and drinks, or summer barbecues out on the deck with family and friends,” says Vercoe.

Off the living room, down a passageway, is a spacious master bedroom with large walk-in wardrobe and two entryways to the ensuite on either side of the master bed.

“The ensuite wouldn’t be amiss in a luxury resort with its double vanity, copper sinks and large dual rain shower,” says Vercoe.

“Minimal, sleek and modern, this really is the perfect home in which to begin and end a busy day.”
