House of the year 2022 – Sentinel Homes Waikato


Natural Wonder


Catergory: New Home up to $500,000

Extensive use of natural materials anchor this seaside home within the landscape and bring the scenic Waikato vistas inside.

A bodo vertical shiplap and metal cladding ensure the gabled house is at home in the coastal setting, while burnished concrete floors, a ply kitchen and raking ceilings are also sympathetic to the environment. And nature provides much to enjoy – extensive windows and sliders capture views of the estuary and usher in natural light. The covered deck allows the owners to make the most of alfresco dining and entertaining, while taking in all that the Rangitahi Peninsula has to offer. Landscaping with timber stairs and native plants add to the appeal. When its chillier, the residents can retreat indoors and cosy up beside the fireplace, which provides ambience as well as warmth. Two bedrooms share a tiled family bathroom, and the main bedroom has a tiled ensuite and walk-in wardrobe. You’ll find a lot more to appreciate in this relatively modest-sized 162sqm house – a breakfast bar, pantry, garage, skylights, attic storage and a vibe that says relax, recharge and enjoy the sea air.
