Award-winning Taupo showhome closing soon

Only a few more weekends are left to experience this wonderful award-winner.

Design Builders Taupo’s showhome took home a Gold at the Bay of Plenty & Central Plateau 2021 Registered Master Builders House of the Year Awards. If ever a house was an exemplar for a modern take on a classic Kiwi country house, this is it. With its special touches, this showhome exudes the charm of a heritage lodge, but with all the latest innovations, design features and warmth of a new build.

The expertly designed floorplan makes the most of spectacular views to the east, and to the south-east across Lake Taupo to Mount Tauhara. It has also been carefully positioned on its site to maximise the sun. The covered outdoor areas on the east and north extend living space into the site. This 227sqm three-bedroom house is elevated from the main road and a landscaped boardwalk leads you to the entry. This, in turn, flows into the open-plan living area and beyond to magical outdoor living. The main bedroom, which has an opulent ensuite, is situated well away from the children’s and guest wings. Among other superb features are raking ceilings, a high-pitched roofline and two built-in wood burners. Weatherboard cladding and stone, plus the magnificent portico, enhance the feel of a luxury lakeside lodge.

To experience this incredible showhome for yourself, you’ll have to be quick. The last viewing opportunities are Saturday, 21 August and Sunday, 22 August, from 11 am – 3 pm.

16 Mapara Road, Acacia Bay
