Spacious, light-filled and built for entertaining, this home lets you feel like you’re on permanent holiday

Relaxed and spacious with fabulous indoor-outdoor flow, this GJ Gardner-built home offers a resort-style ambience

You know that holiday feeling – arriving at an exotic resort stay where the views are stunning, the ambience is laid-back and the room finishes and services all reflect the best of everything. Well returning from work to this airy home evokes that same sense of sheer relaxation.

If you’re looking to build in sunny Tauranga or the wider Bay of Plenty, you’ll appreciate the lifestyle offered by this spacious, contemporary showhome, says Kirsty McConnell franchise owner of GJ Gardner Tauranga South.

“Located in Golden Sands, Papamoa, the three-bedroom, two-bathroom home has two generous living spaces, while sheltered outdoor areas and decks amount to a staggering 41.3m² of alfresco living. The overall design result is a relaxed indoor-to-outdoor flow throughout the home, including the master bedroom with ensuite and beautiful wood dressing room.”

The house is ideally set up for entertaining and for family life, or simply getting away from it all. One of the living spaces opens up to the views and sheltered outdoor living and the other is partly enclosed for a more snug ambience.

The light-filled entertainer’s kitchen with window splashback, is only a few steps from the entertainment and dining spaces, and is backed up by a large walk-in scullery.

​​​​​​​This generous family-dining-kitchen area in a GJ Gardner home opens to decks on three sides for seamless indoor-outdoor flow. Low-upkeep Lapatto floor tiles in Platinum Grey feature in most areas, along with Batiste in Sheer by Norman Ellison Carpets in the bedrooms.

The modern showhome is as solidly built as it is intelligently laid out. It boasts a Colorsteel Longrun roof in Thunder Grey, together with a facade of Premier bagged brick and Hardie Vertical Linea Oblique, painted to match the roof.

Plus, stained cedar vertical screens feature on the distinctive indoor-outdoor pavilions.

Natural, high quality fixtures and materials are seen on the interior, reinforcing the breezy, feel-good look that is what the home is all about.

“This home is one in a portfolio of over 100 house plans that we offer,” says McConnell. “We build everything from simple, one-bedroom homes up to luxury 500m² homes, as well as these custom-designed, resort-style homes.”

GJ Gardner’s professional design and build service ensures complete peace of mind for the homeowner. It involves an all-inclusive process from concept to handover and after care service.

“We have a large team in our busy Tauranga office and offer a refined scheduling process and excellent buying power. A fixed contract price and pre-agreed build time are the result, bringing savings and peace-of-mind for owners.”
