Cook Strait

Supreme Winners Announced

On Saturday night we announced the Cook Strait House of the Year winners for 2022. 

This year,  there were 31 beautiful homes entered from around the Wellington, Wairarapa, Marlborough, Nelson and West Coast region. The much anticipated event was celebrated at the Marlborough Events Centre and was a fantastic evening of celebration. We hope everyone who attended had a great night. 

Supreme House of the Year - Over $1 Million

This home also won the Resene New Home $2 million - $4 million, Pink Batts Craftsmanship Award, and a Gold Award.



This sophisticated home situated on an exposed hill overlooking the Brancott Valley to the west, and the Cook Strait and Cloudy Bay to the east, celebrates retreat and expansion. The southern rear concrete block courtyard wall defines the entry and cleverly shelters the outdoor space. Sophisticated detailing and construction of both the exterior envelope and the interior elements showcase the skills of the designer and craftsmen involved in this stunning home.
