Although sadly, Graham Stewart did not get to live in the new house, Linda says it has proved an ideal home. After living in three earlier Lockwood homes, she was already won over by the warmth of the timber interior and the ease of maintenance – the occasional staining of the decks is all that is ever required. Peter Richards, of Peter Richards Builders, the Lockwood franchisee in Taupo, recently opened a new show home in the Stewarts’ honour. The Stewart is designed on similar lines – it also has an extra-large master suite. Other key features include a schist stone fireplace, soaring gabled ceilings and a solid blonded wood interior.
