Head to toe in the finest armour, Classic Builder’s Kennedy Ridge showhome is superbly dressed to battle all seasonal elements – and looks stunning while doing so.
Superbly positioned on a generously proportioned corner site, the outlook here is boastful. Slight elevation provides an enviable vantage point across the neighbourhood but even more spectacularly, up towards plush green hilltops; adding a rural element to suburban convenience.
The showhome itself is noticeably unique – the sophisticated, distinctive exterior, a balance between dark hues and refined textures. James Hardie Oblique weatherboards are offset by naturally coloured, Premier Ironstone, brick cladding - offering a chic twist on the traditional Kiwi weatherboard home.
Classic Builders have the formula for creating a welcoming abode and in this instance, have hit the nail on the head. The entranceway has been designed to encourage guests into open plan living and dining and this area couldn’t be more befitting of a communal hub.
Family cooks will shine in the modern and functional kitchen. Bosch appliances encourage the creation of culinary delights and the expansive Folkstone Grey benchtop provides ample workspace to do so, while still leaving enough room for lounging teens or dining guests.
Thanks to thoughtful configuration, friends and family needn’t be separated from all the action. Dual alfresco dining options aligning this space; a private courtyard to one side is the ultimate morning pozzie, while a largely proportioned terrace to the other, is most excellent for an afternoon tipple.
As a nation of sun searchers, we like our homes to be just so, and Classic Builders have listened. Large windows and sliders flank the entirety of interior living and when opened, create instant unity between the inner and outer environments, ensuring seamless flow and ease of entertainment. Even when closed, light fills the entirety of this space, bringing natural warmth with it.
Classic Builders know how we like to live, and consciously position their homes to enjoy the best bits of the day. Clever design separates sleep from play, and all three bedrooms are removed from central living - but also the roadside too. Not that it would matter, as the entire home is double glazed, blocking any unnecessary noise out, and trapping all necessary warmth in - and oh so warm it is. A central heat pump and Pink Batt insulation have teamed up to battle winter chill.
Just like the team behind the build, the interior designers for Classic Builders haven’t missed a beat - dressing their homes in current, on trend décor and soft furnishings – simply adding to the coziness factor.
Storage has been carefully considered and each bedroom provides abundant wardrobe space; the master a generous, yet practical walk in. The hallway too caters for overflow, with the Rheem heated hot water cupboard, a superb and impressively sized solution when drying school and sporting uniforms.
Before the homes, came the surrounding amenities, and this particular suburb is a true drawcard - even for non-residing Tauranga locals. Fantastic shopping and dining is met with easy access to all arterial routes, new schooling in adjoining Pyes Pa and an incredibly impressive array of convenient pit stops in ‘The Crossings’ complex. The leisurely boat has not been missed either, with local reserves, waterways and walkways providing a safe haven to live and play. For more photo's, address and opening hours click here
