HOLAH HOMES IS AN AWARD-WINNING DESIGNER HOME CONSTRUCTION COMPANY, AND A 100% FAMILY OWNED AND RUN BUSINESS, BASED IN HAMILTON.
This property encapsulates the very best in build and design, while taking in the majesty of the views of Pauanui Beach. This property stuns all who enter the
front door. It’s the ultimate example of living in empathy with the environment and has a quality finish which is hard to surpass.
There are so many features to this property than one hardly know where to start – flawless and faultless are words which spring immediately to mind. Once you enter you won’t want to leave and will certainly be able to imagine spending many balmy summer holidays by the beach.
Designed and built for laid-back living, the house puts a new spin on the archetypal beach house – the indoors and outdoors are as one. And with glazing on both sides of the open-plan living area, the sea view has not been sacrificed to provide shelter from the on-shore breeze.
The extensive use of exposed natural timbers inside and out sets this house apart. As you walk through this Pauanui “Bach”, you can feel the light and warmth created by them.
It comes as no surprise that this Pauanui home and renovation have won this year’s Supreme Award in the Waikato Registered Master Builders 2018 House of the Year competition. Phil, Grant and Marty Holah, directors of Holah Homes, also won several other awards.
They were awarded the Waikato Registered Master Builders 2018 Supreme House of the Year Gold Award and a win in the New Home Over $2 Million category for their Pauanui home. They were also awarded the Craftmanship Award, the Plumbing World Bathroom Excellence Award, the Heart of the Home Kitchen Award and the Outdoor Living Award.
As quoted by the Judges from the Master Builders “The use of floor to ceiling windows opens the house up to extensive sea views.
It also allows this home to appear more expansive.”
DESIGNED AND BUILT FOR LAID-BACK LIVING, THE HOUSE PUTS A NEW SPIN ON THE ARCHETYPAL BEACH HOUSE – THE INDOORS AND OUTDOORS ARE AS ONE.”
“The use of natural timber finishes to the internal walls and ceilings give a warm ambient feel, as well as offering texture to the rooms. Both the contractor and owner can be very proud of this project.”
Judges said the winning renovation of the year has seamlessly created a new character home with modern conveniences.
“The house was completely modernised. It gives the impression that it is a new house – it is impossible to see what was old and what was new.
“The renovation was beautifully designed and seamlessly constructed, creating a better, insulated modern home that maximises the sun and fantastic views. This a beautiful renovation that has been finished to a very high standard, a worthy Supreme winner.”
The underground wine cellar certainly
caught the eye of judges. The Wine Cellar is incorporated beneath the floor in the dining area, accessed by a spiral staircase that can be admired through a glass hatch door. >
THE USE OF FLOOR TO CEILING WINDOWS OPENS THE HOUSE UP TO EXTENSIVE SEA VIEWS. IT ALSO ALLOWS THIS HOME TO APPEAR MORE EXPANSIVE.”
The theme of exposed natural timbers runs right through the house on both the interior and exterior. Glazing on both sides of the main living area allows a view through the house from the courtyard on the left to the beach and the sea beyond, while timber ply lines the walls and stair balustrade.
This truly is a beautiful renovation which has been finished to a very high standard, and it is no surprise that it has won a Supreme award. This gorgeous property will definitely stand the test of time and has an enduring style which will surely do the same.
