Waikato
Supreme Winners Announced

On Friday night we announced the Waikato House of the Year winners for 2021. 

This year,  there were 29 beautiful homes entered from around the Waikato region. The much anticipated event was celebrated at Claudlands in Hamilton and was a fantastic evening of celebration. We hope everyone who attended had a great night. 

Supreme House of the Year

HOLCROFT PRESTIGE
For a Home in Hamilton

 

 This home also won the CARTERS New Home $1 Million - $1.5 Million Category, Pink Batts Craftsmanship Award, and a Gold Award.

Set on a technically challenging hill site, this build was successful due to the impressive collaboration and problem-solving demonstrated by the project team.

Design and craftsmanship were combined to create a masterpiece with simple and clean lines. From the road, the house looks somewhat mystic due to its dark and moody colour steel boxes, while closer inspection reveals a master class of vistas and detailing.

This home, which looks discrete from the street, is large and spread across two floors. The lower level contains a living room, kitchen, garage, master bedroom and ensuite, while the upper floor has a vaulted ceiling that creates an air of loftiness and sense of space. There is excellent indoor-outdoor flow onto the deck, which has spectacular views of the river. This home is an exceptional build by the team of craftsmen and builders. 

Prominent views over the Waikato have been achieved through clever positioning of the house, and intelligent placement of skylights ensures the home is flooded in natural light.

Supreme Renovation of the Year

JCC BUILD
For a Home in Hamilton Lake


This home also won the Renovation $500,000 - $1 Million Category, Carpet Mill Lifestyle Award, and a Gold Award.

No part of this home has been left untouched. It has increased in size and been completely revamped with some clever touches and details.

One of the most striking features is the negative detailed black panelled buttress and gable design. 

This renovation has resulted in a complete makeover of both the interior and exterior of the home. The new exterior cladding and windows have given the house a whole new look that pairs nicely with the large courtyard, pool, and garden.

A seamless flow has been achieved throughout the home, from the expansive living areas to the outside dining terrace, which features a spectacular view of Hamilton Lake. Overall, this new looking home retains friendly ties to the original dwelling.
