Nate Alley Managing Director at Sentinel Homes Waikato was elated when it was announced the team had won the Volume/Group Housing New Home $500,000 - $750,000 category at the National House of the Year Awards.

“This home was designed to suit our client’s vision of their dream home, including many stunning features such as statement wallpaper, negative detailed ceilings, underfloor heating and a beautiful, landscaped outdoor area. Our team loved the “H style” plan which separates the bedrooms from the living areas as well as the light colours chosen throughout the home that gave it a warm, cosy homely feeling” says Nate.


The award’s prestige was noted by Nate and the Sentinel Homes Waikato Team.

“Winning a National Award has had  several positive impacts, it helped us stand out and showcase what our team is capable of. Most importantly, it acknowledged the hard work, effort, and discipline of our whole team in building and designing homes”.

Judges comments:

Like many other successful entrants, this home has used an H-shaped single storey floor plan with gables to each wing. It has been well-planned and finished beautifully.

The vaulted ceilings in the living wing give height and volume to the space, while the immaculate negative detailing sets it off very nicely. There is an excellent indoor-outdoor flow with the living room opening up to the outdoor alfresco living spaces. The build was completed in five and a half months, which is most impressive. Well done to the builder and all his sub-trades involved who achieved such an amazing home.
