Looking at this new home it's easy to see just how much our design expectations have changed over the past few decades.

Modern living demands simplicity and comfort, and the GJ Gardner Homes show home in Kerikeri provides both and a whole lot more.

For starters, the 215m² house is low maintenance. The exterior has a plastered brick cladding and stained cedar weatherboards. A Gerard Carona Shake roof in the colour Obsidian offsets the light grey walls.

The show home also features stained timber boardwalks that wrap right around the house and form a sunny deck off the main living area.

The master suite in this GJ Gardner Homes show home includes a large bathroom and a walk-in wardrobe.

On the inside, it is the sense of space that makes a strong first impression. Narrow, dark hallways are a thing of the past this home has a light-filled 1250mm-wide hallway that allows for easy circulation.

The home is a modified version of the Byron plan. Spacious open-plan living areas create a welcoming family hub that's ideal for entertaining on a casual or more formal basis.

David McClelland, owner of the GJ Gardner Homes Far North franchise, says this home also puts an emphasis on indoor-outdoor living.

"An extra-large bifold door in the living area opens up the entire wall to a large, covered outdoor entertaining area. The extended roofline provides shade in summer, yet we have designed the house to welcome the sun inside in winter, creating a perfect living environment all year round."

A galley-style kitchen is the social hub of the new GJ Gardner Homes show home in Kerikeri. GJ Gardner Homes specified Quickstep Eligna flooring in Natural Oak for this area.

Further comfort is assured by the high level of insulation and the use of double-glazing with high-performance glass.

Other features of the show home include a media room, a study and a streamlined kitchen with a long island and coloured glass splashback. To provide a sense of retreat, the master suite is separated from the other two bedrooms.

The show home, which is on the corner of Ranui Ave and Martha Clarke Lane, Kerikeri, is the eighth home in the subdivision to be built by GJ Gardner Homes.
