Modern, chic and low maintenance

Compact and low maintenance, yet luxurious and spacious with all the mod-cons, this Landmark Homes Auckland – South East showhome offers the best of both worlds

Stylish duplex

Designed with the future in mind, this stylish duplex – based on Landmark Homes’ Rangitoto Ready to Build plan – is situated in the thriving community of Paerata Rise. 

Conveniently close to Auckland city, yet with the charm of a relaxed country village, Paerata Rise is the ideal location for those seeking a welcoming community atmosphere.

We wanted to create a solution for multi-generational living, says Auckland South and Franklin franchise co-owner Michael Walters. 

“We saw a gap in the market dedicated to designs suited to a range of needs and ages – whether they are downsizing or looking to create space for visiting children and grandchildren – and this design fits these needs.”

From EV chargers installed in the double-car garage and external ramps for easy wheelchair access to internal lifts, this is a space that will be functional and a pleasure to live in down the years. 

For eager motorhome travellers, there’s plenty of parking space and the luxury of being able to ‘lock up and leave’ with the security that your belongings are safe within the community.

Delivering on strong street appeal, the showhome’s variation and play of materials are eye-catching. 

Modern cuboid form

The modern cuboid form is bordered with vertical Lunawood weatherboards in a grey tone, which complements the horizontal Stria cladding, painted in white. 

On either side of the duplex, walls of double-height concrete bricks anchor the building to the site. 

Above the front entrance, timber screening softens the space.

“This concrete brick continues into the interior of the home. It reduces the transmission of sound between units, ensuring privacy for the homeowners and resisting any fire damage,” Walters says.

Friendly welcome

As you enter the home, you’re welcomed into a light and airy foyer. 

The exterior colour and material palettes are repeated indoors, creating a sense of cohesion and calm. 

Stylish wallpaper mimics the hue of the opposite wall’s concrete brick, while the carpeted stairs’ timber balustrade echoes the screening outside the front door. 

Tiled flooring provides luxury underfoot, guiding you towards the downstairs living area. 

Here, a central living room serves two bedrooms. 

Sliding glass doors open to the deck, capturing views of the park beyond – an extension of your backyard to share with the local community. 

An Airbnb, a guest room, a space for noisy teenagers? That’s up to you – this lower level has been carefully designed with multi-purpose contemporary living in mind.

Upstairs for privacy and even better views

Head by stairs or lift to the second storey living area which is filled with light thanks to generous floor-to-ceiling windows stretching the width of the space.

Social and spacious

“This living space is fitted out to host a party of people but to also feel comfortable for a couple," says Walters. "The sense of space is increased with the 12m² deck, which overlooks the community park beyond.” 

This is only half the story of this attractive, highly versatile age-in-place Landmark Homes showhome.
