Spectacular looks may be top of your wish list for your new home, but as well as being a place you are proud to call your own, it also needs to be comfortable. An easy flow between rooms, private outdoor spaces, shelter from the wind these are features that give a house character and make it a pleasure to come home to.
The Venice is one of Platinum Homes' most popular home designs for a number of reasons one of the most appealing being its sheltering 45º wing layout. This house offers year-round protection from the wind, ensuring outdoor spaces are ideal entertainment venues all summer, says director Pauline Thorburn.
"This show home is set in the Little Lakes subdivision at Paraparaumu, and enjoys lake views. While the weather can be variable, this home always feels snug."
The Venice has a sharp, contemporary street presence, with the twin pillars at the covered entry conveying a welcoming sense of solidity. From here, the hall leads to the spacious family room and kitchen, a separate living room, study, bathroom, the master suite and two large bedrooms. Despite a modest 224m² footprint, The Venice gives the sense of ample room to spare an essential part of achieving a relaxed family lifestyle.
