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. But when you’re out and about, why not take the opportunity to explore some of our amazing showhomes. We outline three here for you to take a look at. 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.

Open Fridays to Sundays from 11 am to 3 pm or by appointment. For further information, please contact Matt on 027 464 4652 or by email at matt.corleison@designbuilders.co.nz 

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.

Open Saturdays and Sundays 12–4 pm or by appointment. For further information, please contact Sam Perrin 027 757 7170 or by email at sam.perrin@designbuilders.co.nz
