Long, warm days are here and so it’s nearly time to head outdoors with friends and family to enjoy those great Kiwi summer days again.

If one of our showhomes is near you, please be sure to visit. We promise you a very warm welcome.
But if you’d prefer to enjoy our showhomes from the comfort of your own home, our virtual walkthroughs use the latest technology to give you a 360-degree experience. It’s almost as good as being there. Take a walkthrough here.
Top of the lake
16 Mapara Road, Acacia Bay, Taupo
Closed from 19 December 2020 and will re-open 17 January 2020
This Taupo showhome is Design Builders’ modern take on the classic New Zealand country house style. The expertly designed floor plan makes the most of the spectacular views across the lake and beyond to Mt Tauhara. Carefully positioned to maximise the sunlight, the covered outdoor areas, on the east and north, extend the living space into the outdoors. There’s a sperate guest or children’s wing, away from the master suite. All the bathrooms are designed for easy use with ensuite access for guests. Weatherboard cladding and stone enhance the luxury lakeside lodge feel.
A Home in One
113 Serenity Drive, Omokoroa
Closed from 19 December 2020 and will re-open 9 January 2020
Located a few short putts from a gold course, Design Builders’ latest Bay of Plenty showhome makes full use of its space and location. Four bedrooms connect to a central open plan living area. The beautiful master suite is separated from the bedroom wing to ensure plenty of privacy. The kitchen and dining area flow into a covered outdoor entertaining area, and the clever design makes it all feel wonderfully seamless. The living room has a feature fireplace and, for quieter moments, there’s also an intimate sitting room. This showhome makes even more use of its wonderful location with a three-car garage, where you can even park your own golf cart to sit and admire the view.
A New Yorker in Hamilton
22, Riverpoint Glade, Hamilton
Closed from 26 December 2020 and will re-open 9 January 2020
Design Builders Waikato is known for creating beautiful homes that showcase the best in New Zealand architectural thinking. And this is no exception. The third in a suite of exciting and unique showhomes, this one features styling inspired by the classic New York loft. The living spaces are open and generous, and the outlook is designed to make the most of the nearby park and river. This is one of our most talked-about showhomes ever, and it’s an absolute must-see.
