Hawke’s Bay properties wow at house of the year comp

A stunning home overlooking the Tukituki River has taken out the New Home Over $4 million category at the Central North Island, East Coast & Hawke’s Bay Registered Master Builders House of the Year competition.

The Patangata home, built by builder Davcon, also took out the categories for The Gas Hub Kitchen Excellence Award, Pink Batts Craftsmanship Award, Resene Eco.Decorator Interior Design Award, and a Gold Award.

The single-storey house sits on an elevated rural site, where the builders have answered the owners’ wishes of incorporating their recycled feature pieces, sourced from around the globe, carefully into the construction.

A spokesperson said the design was a large and challenging project that required careful planning to accommodate all the sub-trades and services involved.

“The final result is an outstanding home that has been beautifully constructed. A credit to the builders and all involved, who have executed their work with pride and great attention to detail.”
