Johnny Calley, Director at Calley Homes was overwhelmed and proud when it was announced that the team had won the Resene New Home $2 million - $4 million category at the 2022 National House of the Year Awards.

“It was an incredible feeling to win because there were so many outstanding homes in the category. Celebrating the win alongside our client and project architect at the event was a special moment that I won’t forget,” says Johnny. 

“The hexagonal roof line that drapes over large, glazed stacking sliding doors that open out to the panoramic view is my favourite part of the home. A combination of the clever design and attention to detail throughout the home elevated the final build,” continues Johnny. 


Johnny and the Calley Homes team were faced with significant challenges over the course of the build.

“Building took place throughout the COVID-19 lockdown period, which made procuring the vast number of materials exceptionally difficult.

“Fortunately, our collaboration with architect Cate Creemers throughout the prebuild meant we were able to resolve many of the complex construction details prior, making the build more meticulous and efficient. Winning has helped lift the profile of our business and instills confidence in our clients that they will receive a quality-built home,” said Johnny.

Judges comments:

This outstanding home is perched on the ridge of a hill and has been designed to take advantage of the stunning Tauranga views. It is located at the end of a long winding rural road, which slowly reveals the home.  

A large pivot oak door welcomes visitors into the lobby which features a burnished polished concrete floor. This attention to detail is followed throughout the interior joinery, with another feature pivot door revealing the main living wing, which is terraced down to a sunken lounge. The attention to detail is evident wherever  you look in this house. It has resulted in a beautiful and functional family home.
