This expansive family home sits strong on the skyline while indoors soaring ceilings, chic industrial accents and relaxed connections hold sway

Designed by David Reid Homes Pukekohe

From the homebuilder:

  • This home encompasses a thrilling design with quality materials and workmanship. 
  • Cathedral ceiling area feature of the home, with 2.7m stud ceilings throughout. 
  • Large portrait windows in the lounge frame a relaxing rural landscape – amazing at dusk, the home enjoys 180-degree views towards Auckland City. 

  • Slider doors retract to welcome the outside in – ideal for entertaining under the sheltered louvre canopy or sitting under the sun on the large extended deck.
  • The home makes a big statement in construction and industrial elegance.
  • With strong clean lines, the black cedar, brick, and concrete panel cladding adds elegance and warmth to the exterior.
  • Internally there’s a mixture of materials and colours – such as hints of brass and dark oak cabinetry
  • This home is built for everyday living with flowing alfresco spaces, and for families who love entertaining, with a spacious deck off the dining, family room, and bedrooms.
  • The designer kitchen leads back to a scullery with a double wine fridge – the main island bench is a black and white duo in Dekton, and marbled composite stone matched with oak cabinetry and antique gold tapware.
  • The house includes a separate study, entrance nook, media room, a large family laundry with plenty of storage.
  • There are four generously proportioned bedrooms, and the master wing is privately located while the other bedrooms open to the inner courtyard.
  • The pièce de résistance is an award-winning powder room, concealed behind an oak panelled sliding wall – inside, a chain-linked aged brass shower curtain creates drama.
