Top: Low-set and sprawling, this Feilding home won three awards in the National Master Builders awards. Above: Solid cedar timber doors open up to a generous circulation corridor on the interior. Above right: Moulded cabinetry sits above ceramic tiled plank flooring in the classic, yet contemporary kitchen. Black granite benches and a black sink are pitch-perfect additions. This four-bedroom home won big at the Master Build- ers Regional House of the Year 2016 awards, taking out the Gold Reserve, Nulook New Home $650,000-$1million and Gold Award, Nulook New Home $650,000-$1million as well as Local Category Winner for the Manawatu region. The Feilding home exudes class and comfort at every turn with double cedar front doors opening to the superb interior. Feature wallpapers, high ceilings and plush wool carpet combine to create elegant living spaces. From the formal lounge, the eye is drawn to the rural views, with large glass doors encouraging an easy flow to a veranda. Skylights set into the extended roofline add to the home’s light-filled, ambience. Gas fires featuring floating mantels add a more traditional touch in the formal and casual living rooms. The home’s study with built-in sewing sta- tion is a major plus for keen crafters. A ducted heat pump sends warmth into the garage, laundry, bathrooms and bed- rooms. The master has a walk-in wardrobe and ensuite retreat. The second bathroom is equally dramatic with sleek black tiles and refined fittings.
